While making the rounds for his hit ABC show Castle, Nathan Fillion spoke with MTV News about all things Hammer and divulged some new information about the highly anticipated sequel to last year’s Emmy award-winning web musical, Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along-Blog.

While we’ve previously announced that they’ve been talking about the sequel, everything has been pretty much in the air, but now Fillion sheds some light on the title and some songs. Unfortunately, Fillion stops short of saying exactly what said title would be.

“There are plans. The media for the sequel has not yet been decided, but there is a title.”

Still, a title is a good start. That is, unless the title they decided upon is “Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along-Blog 2.” I gotta say that I’m hoping for “The Bride of Dr. Horrible” or some sort of title in which they might be able to logically bring back Felicia Day and her homeless loving character, Penny.

Titles aside, Fillion continues the Horrible talk by mentioning how the trio Whedon (Joss, Zack & Jed) and Jed’s Wife, Maurissa Tancharoenal are currently busy working on the songs and have already finished a couple of them.

“Joss, I was talking to him right before we won the Emmy. He said that he’s finished writing a song or two. He told me a couple of verses to the song.”

Don’t believe me? Think I’m making this up? Check out the video below to hear from Captain Hammer himself.

Even though I’m such a manly man (How manly? I chop down trees… with my hands.), I’m a big fan of a musicals and loved Dr. Horrible. While I didn’t so much enjoy the musical commentary on the DVD, I  cannot wait until this sequel comes out. I only hope that it’s as good as the original.

…and that they bring back my favorite character, groupie #3 (Steve Berg).

  1. Woo! This is the Whedon passion project we’ve all been waiting for. I do hope Felicia’s back somehow, although I’m not sure how I’d feel about that. I mean on the one hand, it’d undermine the ending of the first Dr Horrible, but on the other hand, it’s not as if he hasn’t killed people of and brought them back before in other shows (Buffy: “Hey I died twice…”).

    Oh, and how could you not like Commentary! The Musical? Did you not hear the Ninja Ropes song? Or Jed Whedons rap? Fillion singing about how he’s better than Neil? The $10 Solo!

    Good times.

    *Sits patiently and waits for the Whedon haters*

  2. Excellent. “The Bride of Dr. Horrible” is much more plausible and enjoyable than the “Zombie Felicia” option in my head.

  3. I’ve heard plenty of Bring-back-Penny ideas, ranging from the Bride of Penny to the Zombie Penny to Robot Penny to Clone Penny Multiplicty-style, and I got to say, out of all the options I’ve heard, my favorite is Evil Penny.

    Doesn’t matter how she comes back, could be any of the options above, all that’s important is she comes back evil. She could take over the Evil League of Evil, kick Doc Horrible out, and try to take over the world. And then it’s up to Horrible and Hammer to team up and a put a stop to her.

    That said, this needs to be a theatrical movie, or at least a longer web series.

  4. I don’t think penny died, did she? Didn’t the end scene cut to him sitting in his house, wearing the clothes he wore earlier in the film? I thought the entire ending was just him daydreaming.
