In a new interview, Joss Whedon opens up about his plans for the Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog sequel, who his favourite characters have been to write, and more.
Joss Whedon has answered fan questions on Reddit, and Geek Tyrant reports his Dr. Horrible comments:
We’re not shooting right now, we’re still in the early stages of writing. But we hope to make a great deal of progress this summer. And you can expect the death of someone you love…
Oh no! Horrible? Captain Hammer? Either would be unbearable! But hey, maybe it’s Moist.
As for whether Firefly could ever come back, it looks like that ship has flown. Whedon jokes about how to make it happen:
Step 2: Cancel Castle. Step 3: Cancel Homeland. Step 4: Generally destroy everybody’s careers. Step 5: Avoid Step 2.
He also reveals his favourite characters to write, and the one he found most difficult:
Spike, Andrew, Illyria, River, Captain Hammer, Loki, the Cheese Man… hell, I love them all, or I wouldn’t write them. But I tend to the left of center. The hardest was always Angel. How to make a decent, handsome, stalwart hero interesting — tough. Angelus, on the other hand..
Are you excited about Horrible? Disappointed about Firefly?
