According to Variety, Joss Whedon plans to have the sequel for Dr Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog in production by this time next year.
He hopes to get it into production “within the next year,” Whedon said Tuesday. (He was pressed by Variety on the fate of the “Dr. Horrible” sequel after he moderated a Q&A with Mike Birbiglia and Ira Glass following a screening of the duo’s IFC feature “Sleepwalk With Me” at the Writers Guild Theater in BevHills.)

They haven’t decided how they’ll handle distribution of the follow-up but intend to take a “media-agnostic” approach to the production.
The original Dr Horrible will air on TV for the first time at 9pm October 9th on CW.
Meanwhile following on from the success of The Avengers, Joss Whedon will assist Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen with the pilot for a new ABC television series based on Marvel’s S.H.I.E.L.D. organization which is currently in production.
