Dr. Horrible 2 is still in the pipeline, with "many songs written"

Dr. Horrible's Sing-along Blog was this perfect little burst of musical-theater supervillainy, which rocked the internet... and then there was no more. Are we going to have to summon the Evil League of Evil to get us a sequel? Apparently not. It's still happening... just very, very slowly. » 2/14/14 12:43pm 2/14/14 12:43pm

Much Ado About Nothing proves Joss Whedon is still a comedy genius

Shakespeare wrote several "comedies," and some of them are still funny today. (As You Like It and Twelfth Night come to mind.) But Much Ado About Nothing is not one of the funny ones. Unless it's being filmed by Joss Whedon, in which case it's fall-out-of-your-seat, holy-shit-can't-breathe funny. » 6/07/13 2:11pm 6/07/13 2:11pm

Myths About Joss Whedon (That Keep Non-Whedonistas Away)

Absolutely everybody on the planet saw Joss Whedon's The Avengers a few times — but still, many of our fellow humans have yet to delve into the Whedon back catalog. Possibly even including you.

This Dr. Horrible T-shirt is worth cheering for

We've seen a lot of Dr. Horrible T-shirts, but this might be the coolest yet. This is your chance to sport the work of Joe "Joebot" Spiotto, who did that amazing River Tam & the Fireflies album cover a couple years ago, and then followed it up with similar artwork for Buffy and Dr. Horrible. You can get this awesome… » 11/06/12 3:43pm 11/06/12 3:43pm

Neil Patrick Harris teams up with Donald Glover for Adventure Time's…

If you liked the Adventure Time episode where Neil Patrick Harris played the male counterpart to Princess Bubblegum, Prince Gumball, then the sequel is going to send you over the Moon. NPH is back as Prince Gumball in the episode "Bad Little Boy" — but also, Community's Donald Glover is playing Marshall Lee, the male… » 10/12/12 10:06am 10/12/12 10:06am

The Dr. Horrible television premiere was a glimpse of the post-TV future

Last night marked the first broadcast TV airing of the web sensation Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog. I didn't watch it. Sorry CW network, but I've already got the whole thing memorized from watching it repeatedly online and on DVD. But I loved seeing everybody from Felicia Day to my geeky friends tweeting about it —… » 10/10/12 2:10pm 10/10/12 2:10pm

Watch Neil Patrick Harris' soul evaporate a little more in the first …

You'd better hope Joss Whedon gets around to filming Dr. Horrible 2 soon — or else Neil Patrick Harris may already have lost too much of his inner soul essence to those all-devouring blue plastic monstrosities. NPH is filming a sequel to last year's The Smurfs, and here's your first set photo. Looks like a wedding? Or… » 7/10/12 4:26pm 7/10/12 4:26pm

What will Joss Whedon's next project really be?

Now that Joss Whedon has joined the tiny club of directors whose films have made over a billion dollars, there's tons of speculation about what's next for the no-longer-a-cult icon. People are dragging lists of Whedon's unfinished projects out of mothballs — the Guardian suggests maybe he'll decide to make a Buffy » 5/14/12 1:35pm 5/14/12 1:35pm

Why does Joss Whedon always kill the characters we love?

Joss Whedon. He's bloodthirstier than a hundred vampires. He'll kill off characters just to make a point, or to supply a story beat, or just because his assistant didn't get the right cream cheese for his bagel today. Why is he the grim reaper, and why do we continue supporting him in his murder spree? Find out in… » 4/27/12 1:30pm 4/27/12 1:30pm
