Joss Whedon has been busy with "The Avengers" and other side projects lately, but that doesn't mean he hasn't been thinking about a followup to "Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog." In a recent interview, Whedon teased that work on a sequel could begin as soon as this summer.
"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 said. "We're stuck, basically, at this one part in the process. All of us are looking at this summer as the time when we can go, 'Hey, you know what? We've got a little free time, let's get unstuck.' Neil has been like, 'How long?' We're all sort of just waiting, but the waiting will stop."
I really hope this is true. Especially because now summertime's near. And Dr. Horrible is (almost) here. To make you quake with fear, to make the whole world kneel.
Steven Moffat announced that, while we will see Amy and Rory during the upcoming seventh season, their story will come to a "heartbreaking end." Matt Smith says he will miss Arthur Darvill and Karen Gillan, but "the great thing about 'Doctor Who' is its ability to change."
Moffat says the doctor will be getting a new companion, but is giving no details about "he, she or it."
Mary Tamm passed away today at the age of 62 after an 18-month battle with cancer. Tamm played the Doctor's companion Romana, alongside Tom Baker. A phenomenal actress, she also had roles on Wire in the Blood, Eastenders, and many great live theatre productions, including Private Lives and Abigail's Party.
"On set and offstage, her earthy northern humour and self-deprecating wit brightened every occasion. She was a consummate actress, and immensely popular in the profession," said her husband, Marcus Ringrose. "We will all miss her."
After last week's 90-minute Season Two premier drew a total of 7.3 million viewers, AMC announced that "The Walking Dead" will return for a third season next Fall.
The current season will run 13 episodes in total, with six airing in the fall, and the rest airing in 2012 starting February 12th.
Hopefully this time the show can continue without so much drama behind the camera.
Disney and Lucasfilm have announced plans for a new Star Wars film every summer, beginning with Episode VII in 2015. The news comes from CinemaCon, where Disney also premiered new footage from the Lone Ranger, starring Johnny Depp.
