Joss Whedon Confirms Doctor Horrible 2 is Coming Soon
In a Q&A at the SXSW music and film festival in Austin, Texas this week, Avengers director Joss Whedon confirmed that work is underway for the sequel to his popular 2008 internet musical Doctor Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog. Whedon has stated previously that several songs and a few scenes have been written for the long-awaited sequel, but in answer to a direct question from CraveOnline on whether his next project after The Avengers would be Doctor Horrible 2, Whedon replied, “That’s the plan. We plan to be working on it this summer.” He also stated that the sequel has a full story outline ready to go.
Neil Patrick Harris and Nathan Fillion have both repeatedly expressed enthusiasm for the sequel, and are expected to return in their starring roles as Doctor Horrible and his nemesis Captain Hammer.
