A Hollywood Reporter Q&A with Joss Whedon (extended mix). A truncated version appeared a couple of days ago but now you can read the interview in full. There's some lovely new material to be had.

Some truly depressing bits in this.

"And with these big Silicon Valley companies, they're like, "So in the third part of the second part of the fifth clause ..." and I'm like, "Guys, it's August.""


Either Joss is talking to the wrong people or Silicon Valley have gone seriously downhill since the old days of fast reactions to new ideas. Or the disconnect between the creative Hollywood types and the techies are still going strong.
Maybe this is just because it's late and I'm tired, but I read the part about "Dr. Horrible" not being "in the black" (profit) yet, and I suddenly heard in my mind, "Take me out to the black ..." Who knew that the "Firefly" theme song was actually about "Dr. Horrible" turning a profit? :)
Well, this is the biggest thing for me:

But our main goal is to get the DVD out, definitely before November.


That'll definitely ease the back-to-college stress (going back in October). I missed the earlier thread, so this has probably already been mentioned, but I'm still psyched.
I wake up, I wanna play with my kids and/or tell stories.


I'm one of the people who has been pushing for Joss to write a novel but really, he should be writing kids' picture books. That would also give him the visual side of things as well. Can't you just imagine it? And I'll bet he has ideas already.
I read the ending too fast and thought Joss was going to make a ballet with Summer about Terminators.

Now I want it.
"The Servinator"
Oooh . . . I smell plot twist, Saje!
Before November would definitely work for me! I like to get my Christmas shopping early so I can mail everything off in early December, and I plan to give away a lot of copies of the 'Doctor Horrible' DVD this Christmas!

I'd never thought about that before, Lioness, but what a good idea. Wouldn't it be nice if Joss could pair up with someone like Maurice Sendak? It has been said that Sendak's attraction to the forbidden or nightmarish aspects of children's fantasy have made him a subject of controversy -- perhaps his and Joss' visions would be a good fit?
"Heather Has Two Mommies and One of Them Must Die."
"Heather Has Two Mommies and One of Them Must Die."

Well compared to The Brothers Grimm the work of the Brothers Whedon is positivly huggs and puppies and rainbows.
We do have an interview with the Evil League of Evil for the DVD, and they're evil, I gotta tell you.

Is this new, or did I just miss it previously?
No, we've always known they're evil. ;-)

I hadn't heard about this particular extra either.
Because, you know, you make less money with free things.

Hehee, the man is a financial genius too!

Great interview, many things to look forward to, especially the nebulous ones. I'm really looking forward to his forthcoming collaboration with Gris Grimly or Jill Thompson. ;D
I really enjoyed this interview. You get the sense that while being a bit overwhelmed, they're really enjoying themselves.
"Heather Has Two Mommies and One of Them Must Die."

Thank you for this, Pointy.
Dr. H twitters that he's "Tirrrrrred," so hopefully this'll add a laugh to his workful Saturday.

And not make him break down sobbing. That would be bad. Humor's a two-edged thing.
I have thought about doing a "Buffy" musical but I wouldn't do "Once More, With Feeling." I would do a musical adaptation of the concept starting from square one.


Now that sounds interesting.
I love Dr. H, but I'm hoping Joss goes with the "something completely new" idea. I'm excited to see the different places he could go with this format. And we'll have Dollhouse for the (hopefully long) arc.
