Joss Whedon entered Comic-Con yesterday to a roar of cheers and applause, but the reaction to his entrance was nowhere near as loud as the reaction to the news he brought.

First, on the list (thanks to the folks at TechLand) was a quick chat about the progress of filming for The Avengers.

“We’re about 2/3 of the way through shooting, and I live somehow to tell this. I think it’s coming along really well. I have yet to make it more than the sum of its parts, but I’m really excited about the parts.”

HeroComplex has an additional quote from Whedon discussing his excellent star-studded Avengers cast.

“What I find is that these characters mesh through these differences really well,” he told the capacity crowd at the Hilton Bayfront’s Indigo Ballroom. “And what I also find is these actors have a great time playing against each other, and they are, as a troop, actually a much better team than the Avengers are.”

He said working on “Avengers” has been easier than he expected. “In fact, the only problem I’ve had with ‘The Avengers’ is: Where is the 14-year-old girl with superpowers?” he joked.

For the brown-coats in the audience, Whedon also revealed that he has plans for a sequel to Serenity.

One intriguing tidbit that did emerge was the fact that Whedon stated that he’s trying to get a sequel to Serenity greenlit but no studio is biting.

As if he were Steve Jobs announcing the next big Apple product, Whedon had one more thing to add to his round-up of updates. According to Twitter-user “Caitdog” who was present at the panel, a sequel to Dr. Horrible is not only in the works but may actually be arriving soon. His under 140 character update is below.

Guy: “Can we be expecting a Dr. Horrible 2 anytime soon?” Whedon: “The thing you need to understand is…yes.”

This information is strangely absent from many major news sites that covered Comic-Con, so it should be taken with a grain of salt (although it was re-tweeted by Felicia Day who played Penny in the original, so there may be some truth to this.)

So what do you think? Are you excited for possible sequels to Serenity and Dr. Horrible’s Sing Along Blog? Are you holding back your opinion until you see The Avengers next May?

    • Mego

      He did say at some point that he wanted to find a way to include the entire crew. Don’t have any sources atwm though

      Why did they have to kill Wash? I thought it didn’t really do anything for the movie.

  • JCman7

    No way!!! Serenity 2 would be awesome!!

  • Anonymous

    Dr.Horrible 2!!!!!

  • Isa

    He’s been trying to organize Serenity 2 and Dr. Horrible 2 for a couple of years now… He’s always in the process of doing something, but always gets sidetracked by other things, like Glee, and now The Avengers, which I’m super excited for. But it’s good to hear that we will get Dr Horrible 2 soon.

  • PsychicGirl

    I grow up, get rich, make a studio and buy Serenity 2. :)

    • Megestos

    • http://www.facebook.com/jun.kaviedes Jun Kaviedes

      Amen to that.

    I can’t wait for Doctor Horrible 2 and I really want a studio to take Joss up on Serenity 2. I loved the show and the movie so much. It makes me so sad that it didn’t get a longer run.

  • Drwhodamien

    I’ve got a feeling that Serenity 2 is going to be like Joss Whedons Inception, what I mean by this is that after The Dark Knight Warner Brothers gave Nolan the freedom to do what he wanted so that’s what I think will happen for Whedon and Serenity 2.

  • Philly_phly

    Serenity 2 will complete my life!!!!

  • zel

    • Dsa

      the war is wut the serenity television show was all about, “Firefly”

      • http://www.facebook.com/jun.kaviedes Jun Kaviedes

        Not really, I dont remember Firefly going into much depth regarding the war.

      Good shepard is dead no? as for the pilot, at the end of serenity they showed that River has the aptitude to learn things quickly.

  • karekeri
