Dr Horrible2 TV Dr. Horrible’s Sing Along Blog 2 to Film this Summer

It’s been a while, but Joss Whedon promises to add a dash of  harmonious horror to the summer by finally beginning filming  on the long-awaited Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog 2.

The Whedon clan have been relatively tight lipped about what we can expect from the upcoming season, but Joss has promised that soon enough patient fans will have answers.

In a recent interview Joss Whedon had this to say; “We’re stuck, basically, at this one part in the process. All of us are looking at this summer as the time when we can go, ‘Hey, you know what? We’ve got a little free time, let’s get unstuck.’ Neil has been like, ‘How long?’ We’re all sort of just waiting, but the waiting will stop.”

Whedon goes on to add that he’s got a “number of songs” written, and “a whole outline.” What exactly that outline consist of is currently a secret, but with Dr. Horrible becoming a proper super villain and with no official word if Felicia Day will reprise her role as Penny, fans of the award winning musical web series can rest assured that even after nearly four years the Whedons have more toe-tapping evil hilarity coming for series two.

Joss Whedon has always been the king of multitasking, but lately he’s been putting that skill to the test. Between directing a little project known as The Avengers, filming an adaptation of Much Ado About Nothing, writing the screenplay for the upcoming Chris Hemsworth flick Cabin in the Woods as well as finally completing the post-apocalyptic series Wastelanders with writer Warren Ellis — Whedon has a lot on his plate since the 2007-2008 writer’s strike which gave birth to Dr. Horrible.

The brainchild of writer and director Joss Whedon, along with writer brother Zack Whedon and composer brother Jed Whedon, Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog was designed as something inexpensive and quick to shoot—Shortly after its 2008 debut, the musical tragicomedy became a breakout hit internet sensation.

Released online in three acts, the first installment of Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog revolved around the titular character Dr. Horrible (Neil Patrick Harris) as an aspiring supervillian who melodiously stalks young Penny (Felicia Day), a girl from the laundromat. Foiling Dr. Horrible’s villainous and romantic plans is the dimple-chinned Captain Hammer (Nathan Fillion) who is more of self-centered super bully than super hero. The final act of series one found Dr. Horrible achieving his evil goal – So what does that mean for series two?

  1. firstly , *nerdgasm*!!totally…two friends of mine made me watch this “movie-thing” because i am redhead, and they want us to dress up in halloween like Dr horrible, captain hammer and penny…so i agreed and then i wached it and i just fell inlove in that movie!!!!!!!
    i love Neil Patrick Harris so much!!and he is great in this thing….its just so funny…and the songs are awesome!!!
    *cant wait until its posted!!!!!!!*

  2. But wait……. if my memory serves me correct, isn’t penny dead?

    • Zombie.

    • dundundunnnnnnn

  3. They could make her into a zombie/cyborg/Frankenstein’s monster

  4. I CANT WAIT UNTIL SECOND ONE IVE WATCHED THE FIRST ONE LIKE TEN TIMES IN THE PAST COUPLE DAYZ

  5. I loved the musical, all i wish to see in the next one is for it to be longer! 40min. is too short! hopefully its above an hour.

  6. Most seconds aren’t good, but let’s try this. JOSS WHEDON IF YOU ARE READING THIS (you’re not) I EXPECT MUCH OF YOU!!!

    • Haha no kidding

  7. I started watching this movie last night! I saw it twice! and i have to say i love it!! i find it kinda funny. I saw this girl’s video on youtube she made an animation of dogs of the song “My eyes” after i watched that i just had to watch this movie!! I wanna see a second one!!!

    • I watched Splash’s video for that today and loved it so I went and watched the movie. BEST DECISION EVER MADE. THIS IS MY NEW FAV MOVIE! Can’t wait for the second!!!

  8. I think what most of my friends have missed is that Captain Hammer was the bad guy and Dr. Horrible, no matter how evil he WANTED to be, was the good guy. Captain Hammer would have killed him without blinking an eye. And like one poster said ELE may not be so happy with him since the reality is that Hammer actually killed penny. I think the most horrible thing he did was take credit for the kill.
