That long-awaited sequel to Joss Whedon's Emmy-winning Web series Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog may end up in movie theaters rather than a computer screen; watch below.

That's according to star Neil Patrick Harris, who gave the news to MTV.com:

Apparently they're making a 'Dr. Horrible' sequel—a feature film, I hope," laughed Harris. "I hope they cast me in it—we'll see."

"That's their plan," he reiterated when asked whether a feature-film was indeed the preferred format for the sequel. "I don't know of what scale. They're talking all options, because they made the first 'Dr. Horrible' in five days on no budget at all—that was its intention."

We love Dr. Horrible and think it represented something awesome and new, particularly for a Web-based project. A sequel movie? We'll put our trust in Whedon and company to come up with something equally awesome. (Watch Harris' full video interview below.)
