In a recent interview with Joss Whedon, New York Times writer Dave Itzkoff asks none of your burning questions about The Avengers film and instead spends his time pursuing the sequel to “Dr. Horrible’s Sing-A-Long Blog.” This is fine by me. Whedon, predictably, doesn’t reveal much at all except to say, “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, Nathan and Felicia ain’t busy either.” So, several songs, a plot and the news that the delicious gingersnap that is Felicia Day will be returning. So fingers crossed for “Dr. Horrible’s Sing-A-Zombie Blog.” (Laundry day, see you there, viscera, tumbling…)
The best part of the interview (and the reason Joss is such a favorite of mine) is Whedon’s response when the interviewer presses him for more information:
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.
While you’re reading the entire transcript of the interview, I’m going to be ogling these photos of Nathan Fillion. I’m not certain what is going on here. Was he auditioning for Airborne? Either way, I approve this message, this bandana, and this Discman. The Discman may be his pen*s.
And lest you think Nathan is the dorkiest member of the “Dr. Horrible” cast, I’ve got some photographic evidence to prove otherwise.
