Yes, I know Joss Whedon has been a little busy with this little movie called The Avengers and this other one called The Cabin in the Woods to be worried about a sequel to the hit web series Dr. Horrible’s Sing-A-Long Blog. But he’s still saying that the wait for the second part of Dr. Horrible’s story will be coming soon.
According to Whedon, he would like to start work on the sequal this summer!
“We are hard on it. It’s been a really tough year — couple of years — partially, I’m happy to say, because of work,” Whedon said during the South by Southwest Film Festival, where he was promoting the previously-mentioned The Cabin in the Woods (because, you know, The Avengers doesn’t really need any promoting).
For those of you living under a rock, Dr. Horrible’s Sing-A-Long Blog was an internet sensation back in 2008 when it was released. Starring such geek icons like Felicia Day, Nathan Fillion and Neil Patrick Harris, it was named one of Top 50 Inventions of 2008 by Time Magazine. Yeah, it’s a big deal.
Although Whedon did not discuss details like plot for the second part of the series, he did state that a number of songs for it have been written.
Needless to say, I CAN’T WAIT!
