Despite being busy and being Mister big time Hollywood big shot working on Marvel’s “The Avengers,” Joss Whedon is still actively involved in developing his sequel to his surprise web-series hit “Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog.” In a recent interview with the NY Times, Whedon had this to say regarding the progress of the sequel:
We’ve got several songs near completion and we’ve got a very specific structure. We’ve just all got jobs. And it’s not like Neil [Patrick Harris], Nathan [Fillion] and Felicia [Day] ain’t busy either. We get together at Christmas and family occasions, and then play each other our partial songs and go, “Yup, that’s still exactly as it was the last time we played it. We’re great.”
And while Whedon did not reveal any of the plot details, he did confirm a few things:
It’s going to be Dr. Horrible and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. And it’s going to be just as good as the other one. I don’t know why people are upset about that title. And by the way, by the time we finish it, Neil will be just as old. No, I’m not saying anything.
It’s interesting how Whedon revealed that Felicia Day will return. As fans know, her character was killed off. Based on pure speculation, could it mean that the sequel will have some sort of time traveling element? I guess anything could happen. I loved “Dr. Horrible” and I cannot wait for the sequel, possible even more so than “The Avengers.” Yes, I said it.
