Robot Chicken DC Comics Special
He riotously roasted George Lucas and Star Wars in three Robot Chicken specials. Now evil genius Seth Green is ready to defame and defile yet another sacred sci-fi cow — the DC Comics universe! Adult Swim's Robot Chicken DC Comics Special (Sunday, Sept. 9, midnight/11c) boasts an awesome voice cast including Nathan Fillion (Green Lantern), Paul Reubens (The Riddler), Megan Fox (Lois Lane) and Alfred Molina (Lex Luthor), plus DC toys and action figures doing the most, well, unexpected things.

Got any scoop on the final season of Fringe? — Samuel
NATALIE: Anyone who's been lulled into a false sense of security that September's premonition of Olivia dying in every timeline already came true last season might be in for a rude awakening this year. We're not saying Olivia is definitely going to die — please, no! — but executive producer J.H. Wyman was certainly coy about it. "There will be death in the final season," he says. "Whenever there's a war, there are going to be casualties. I think they're going to be unexpected." Yes, that sounds like multiple deaths to us too!

Robot Chicken's DC Comics special
Aquaman has always been the Rodney Dangerfield of superheroes but he's finally getting some respect — from Robot Chicken! The waterlogged DC Comics legend will be royally skewered, along with his Justice League pals Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman, in Adult Swim's Robot Chicken DC Comics Special (Sunday, Sept. 9 at midnight/11c). The special kicks off the Emmy-winning show's sixth season. To commemorate the madcap occasion, DC Comics is issuing a special Robot Chicken variant cover of Aquaman No. 12 (on sale August 29 at comic book stores), and TV Guide Magazine has the exclusive first look!
Christian Bale, Pee Wee Herman
Tired of Christian Bale's super-husky Batman voice? Maybe you'll like this better.
On Wednesday's Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Paul Reubens (aka Pee-Wee Herman) used his distinctive voice to overdub a TV spot for the hotly anticipated Batman film, The Dark Knight Rises.
The result? A hilarious clip that you should just watch for yourself below.
Are you excited for Dark Knight Rises? Anyone else think Pee-Wee should do the voiceover for all movie trailers?
Those clever boys at Robot Chicken are about to strike fanboy gold. The Adult Swim stop-motion comedy hit is partnering with DC Entertainment and Warner Bros.

Scooby-Doo and Batman
It's a reunion nearly 40 years in the making when Scooby-Doo and his gang team up with the Dark Knight on a delightfully bizarre episode of Batman: The Brave and the Bold, airing Friday, April 1 (6:30/5:30c on Cartoon Network). Written by animation and comic book vet Paul Dini and hosted by Paul "Pee-wee Herman" Reubens (who reprises his role as Bat-Mite, a self-described "all-powerful being ...

The Oscar winner, 38, took on the country classic "Islands in the Stream" with Jason Sudeikis' Kenny Rogers during her monologue, where she displayed her "impressive" country music knowledge. Later, she put a bar mitzvah-inspired twist on Taylor Swift's "You Belong with Me" (sample line: "She doesn't...
The iconic grey suit and red bowtie have returned: Pee-wee Herman is back and heading to HBO for a special filmed presentation of his Broadway show, The Pee-wee Herman Show on Broadway.
The 90-minute comedy show is not unlike an extended version of his Emmy-winning Pee-wee's Playhouse series, which ran for four years on CBS. Pee-wee ran in Los Angeles a year ago and is currently playing in New York's Stephen Sondheim Theatre, where it has been met with favorable reviews.
"It's cyclical," Reubens said at Friday's Television Critics Association's winter preview sessions. Reubens appeared via satellite from New York in full Pee-wee attire. "If you wait long enough...
