Made in five days with almost no budget, Joss Whedon’s Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog became an Internet sensation.  With catchy songs and funny performances from Nathan Fillion, Felicia Day, and Neil Patrick Harris as the title character, it’s not difficult to see why it caught on so quickly.

Now sequel plans are in the works.  Speaking with MTV, Harris revealed that Whedon, brothers Zack and Jed, and Maurissa Tancharoen would like to make Dr. Horrible 2 a feature film, but nothing is set in stone at this point.  Harris points out that they don’t want to make a huge blockbuster feature, but also not something so cheap that it wouldn’t be worth it to send it to theaters.  He also made the point that the three leads have to manage a potential sequel with Harris on How I Met Your Mother, Fillion on Castle, and Day as the writer, producer, and star of the online series The Guild.

Hit the jump to check out the video of the interview and a synopsis of the original musical.

Here’s a synopsis for Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog:

An aspiring supervillain discovers that taking over the world is no easy task while attempting to get accepted into the Evil League of Evil and summoning the courage to finally make conversation with his laundromat crush. Better known to the world as “Dr. Horrible,” Billy (Neil Patrick Harris) has big plans for world domination, though they never seem to pan out. If Billy could just accomplish his duel goals of gaining entry into the most exclusive supervillain club in the world and finally break the ice with pretty Penny (Felicia Day), perhaps people would start taking him seriously as a diabolical mad genius. The only thing preventing Billy from realizing his one true destiny as a destroyer of worlds is his arch nemesis Captain Hammer (Nathan Fillion), an irritating do-gooder who thwarts him at every turn, and seems to have an eye on Penny as well. But Billy’s got a plan, and if it all goes right he’ll soon be sitting pretty in the E.L.E. with Penny by his side, and rid of pesky Captain Hammer once and for all. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide
