Many winters past ... it was the 2007-2008 Writer's Strike ... a dark time ... a cold time, where reruns were the only salvation we, the Nerd people, could find, and many a decent show was put on the chopping block for reasons beyond their control. (thank the Gods Supernatural made it through). But one man stood up! One nerd said, "No!" He said, "I cannot in good faith abandon my people!" He said, "We shall make a Musical Tragicomedy Miniseries (in three acts) starring Doogie Howser (Neil Patrick Harris), Captain Tightpants (Nathan Fillion), and that really hot ginger from The Guild (Felecia Day)!" That nerd was Joss Whedon.
And I'll be damned ... he did it.
|JOSS WHEDON IS MY MASTER NOW|
And now that his plate is really full, what with unleashing the mega-super-awesome-needs-to-get-here-naow Avengers, the dervish production of Much Ado About Nothing ... the poster to which leaves me completely befuddled, and promoting the release of the horror-comedy The Cabin in the Woods, Joss Whedon has released word of the upcoming production of the next installment to Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog this summer.
Queue excited, "Eeeeeee!"
"We are hard on it. It's been a really tough year – couple of years – partially, I'm happy to say, because of work," Whedon reported, also stating, "We do have a number of songs written. We have a whole outline."
Also titular Dr. Horrible actor Neil Patrick Harris has been like, "'How long?' We're all just sorting of waiting, but the waiting will stop."
All I know is, in the words of Barney Stinson, "It's gonna be legen—wait for it ... DARY!"
