San Diego Comic-Con is the time for fans to catch a glimpse of upcoming films, hear their favorite actors regale huge crowds with stories, and this year, be witness to a ‘Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog’ reunion!
Dark Horse Comics made the announcement this week. For the reunion, Dr. Horrible himself, Neil Patrick Harris, is not on the guest list, but Nathan Fillion and Felicia Day will both be there alongside show creators Joss Whedon, Jed Whedon, and Maurissa Tancharoen.
Dark Horse also released the following panel description along with their full schedule:
“In 2008, ‘Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog’ became a beloved web-series. The show
tells the story of Dr. Horrible (played by Neil Patrick Harris), an aspiring supervillain;
Moist (Simon Helberg), Dr. Horrible’s minion; Captain Hammer (Nathan Fillion),
his nemesis; and Penny (Felicia Day), their shared love interest. Celebrate the 10th
anniversary of this popular show by joining creator Joss Whedon, Jed Whedon,
Nathan Fillion, Felicia Day, and Maurissa Tancharoen for a lively discussion and celebration!”
Though it appears he will sit this one out, Harris has previously spoken about getting the gang together for a ‘Dr. Horrible’ sequel, saying:
“I would be so excited if that were to ever come to pass. From what I hear, Joss Whedon has a couple other irons in the fire. He’s busy doing other massive, time-suck, financially remarkable endeavors. But if there’s ever another writers’ strike, I’ll certainly sign up for the sequel.”
Day has also shared similar comments about the show, saying:
“You know, ‘Dr. Horrible’ is one of those things that always comes up, but it’s kind of hard because the creators behind that are now working on the biggest Marvel things in the world. Marvel and DC now, and all that stuff. So I don’t know about that necessarily.”
Joss Whedon has certainly been busy since ‘Dr. Horrible.’ He directed Marvel’s ‘The Avengers’ for the release in 2012 and ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ in 2015. Following that, Whedon was hired by DC Films to work on the ‘Justice League’ film following Zack Snyder’s exit.
The rest of the production crew have been busy building their own credits, with Jed Whedon and Tancharoen executive producing and showrunning Marvel’s ‘Agents of SHIELD.’
