Details on 'Robot Chicken DC Comics Special II: Villains In Paradise'

Seth's WhoSay

From the press release:
Robot Chicken has fun with the DC Comics universe once again with the highly anticipated Robot Chicken DC Comics Special II: Villains In Paradise half-hour special on Sunday, April 6th at 11:30 p.m. (ET/PT) on Adult Swim. Season seven of the Emmy Award®-winning series kicks off one week later.

The Robot Chicken DC Comics Special II: Villains in Paradise returns the DC Comics universe of characters back into the twisted talons of the Emmy Award®-winning Robot Chicken. This time around, the villains take charge of the narrative, and their unpredictable tale takes them from the swamps to the sky to the beach, where they finally face a mind-boggling threat to their very existence! The all-star cast includes Seth Green as Batman and Robin, Zac Efron as Superboy, Alfred Molina as Lex Luthor, Sarah Hyland as Lex Luthor’s daughter Lena, Nathan Fillion as the Green Lantern, Alex Borstein as Wonder Woman, Clancy Brown as Gorilla Grodd, Giovanni Ribisi as the Joker, Tara Strong as Harley Quinn, Breckin Meyer as Superman, plus Hugh Davidson, Matthew Senreich, Clare Grant, Zeb Wells, and Kevin Shinick as the narrator.

Also in going back and reading more about the special I found an older EW article with more details about Superboy's storyline:
It was Green who reminded the room that Lex Luthor (voiced again by Spider-Man 2‘s Alfred Molina) has a daughter in the DC canon. ”The idea of Lex Luthor having a daughter that he’s got to both have a relationship with and discipline is very funny,” he says. Especially if she were to meet Superboy, the hot teen clone of Superman.

“The best part about the DC universe is there’s so many characters and there’s so many stories that have happened over the years, and some of them are just crazy. [DC Entertainment's Chief Creative Officer] Geoff Johns gave us a fair amount of leeway with the stories that we wanted to tell,” says Green, who’ll once again direct. “It’s gonna become a little bit more of a West Side Story/Romeo and Juliet star-crossed love story.”
