"Joss has some strange, giant master plan that includes much more than a sequel". The Watcher talked to Neil Patrick Harris about Dr. Horrible at a CBS party on Friday. - And who would win in a fight: Dr. Horrible or Barney?

Oh, and if this has been posted before, please delete. I'm getting confused...

“Who is more awesome?
Dr. Horrible on a scale of one to 10 is a 10, and Barney’s, like, 27.”


Classic.

“You’ll probably have to ask him.”

(... i.e., ask Joss about the possibility of sequels, etc.)


Sounds like a good question for Monday's online Q&A at the Washington Post
“Joss has some strange, giant master plan that includes much more than a sequel,” Harris said. “Joss thinks on a great many levels, so when he was pitching it to us, he said, ‘And this will take over the world, and there will be sequels and musicals on stage and feature films and we’ll get our own television network and they’ll name awards after us’ and things like that.

That sounds very Joss... and very me too, which is incredibly scary and awesome, and now I feel more pressure from my own essence than ever before.

Dammit. ;)

*needs to spend some time in the wilderness*
Joss is all about an overhaul of the system - putting the power in different hands.
"You mean cutting off the heads... of the studio execs?!"
I laughed at that line too, highandrandom :). There so needs to be a Phd. in Awesomeness ;)
After the HUGE success of Dr. Horrible, what do you think about Joss auto-producing Buffy animated and broadcasting it through the web?
I think that animation is much more time, labour and therefore money intensive than Dr Horrible. And as Joss has said himself, there's a good chance that, if there were a next time, Dr Horrible would be more time, labour and therefore money intensive than Dr Horrible too.

That said, if he could get the rights to the characters etc. cheaply enough, a series of animated Flash shorts might not be prohibitively expensive (and obviously he'd "just" be writing it, kind of like with the comics, so maybe doable time-wise too).
Whedonesque has kajillions of "Dr. Horrible" links.


It does? *blink* How much is a kajillion again?

It's ten Brazilian. (See terrible George Bush joke)

‘And this will take over the world, and there will be sequels and musicals on stage and feature films and we’ll get our own television network and they’ll name awards after us’ and things like that.”

Does he have a newsletter?
I should clarify that I mean a George Bush joke that is terrible, not a joke about terrible George Bush. Though now I think of it it does work both ways.
... he said, ‘And this will take over the world, and there will be sequels and musicals on stage and feature films and we’ll get our own television network and they’ll name awards after us’ and things like that.”

I think Joss is kidding - too much saturation of one project could kill the interest. I'm very satisfied with how this first one ended, though I'm not averse to a sequel. How does Dr. H deal with losing his soul? Own television network, definitely.

Oh God I really really want more Dr Horrible!
Well any continuation would be awesome, but I'd definitely prefer more live action to a graphi novel. I mean, unless it was a magic singing comic book.

Either way, a sequel has to be made so we can finally get an answer to Captain Hammer's mysterious backstory. I mean, what kind of superhero has four sweatervests dry-cleaned?
I know that Q has kept me up tossing and turning, RaisedByMongrels. ;)

No, really.
