Robot Chicken plans DC Comics special

DC Comics' Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns and Seth Green have announced that they're making a Robot Chicken DC special to air sometime in 2012.

The parody show based around DC Comics characters was revealed at the New York Comic-Con.

The Robot Chicken /DC Comics special - shortened to RC/DC on a concept reel of previously aired Robot Chicken DC sketches shown at NYCC - will begin production in the next month.

It will be scripted by Johns and the Mad Magazine cartoon writer Kevin Shinick.

Green also revealed that his team are still working on an a comedy series based on Star Wars .

Meanwhile, Johns also said he was still hopeful of producing a live-action sequel to Green Lantern .

“I hope that the character gets another film. And it will be live-action again - I guarantee,” he said. “There was a lot of really good stuff in the movie."

Guess it'll all depend on how the well the Green Lantern Blu-ray and DVDs sell when they're released next week.
