Joss Whedon is planning to follow up his musical miniseries Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog with a new web series called Wastelanders.
When? Just as soon as he’s done with Iron Man, Cap and the rest of The Avengers.
”I really want to make something tiny. You know, get back on the Internet,” says The Buffy The Vampire Slayer creator. “Just something really home-baked.”
Whedon had been working on Wastelanders with novelist and comics scribe Warren Ellis for a while but had to postpone it because IRON MAN doesn’t come knocking every day.
Wastelanders is described as an “end of world” project that Whedon promises will be a far removed from the comedic tragedy of Dr. Horrible:
”I’ll say this about it…there ain’t no singing. It’s a dark piece, and I’m just like, ‘Gosh, well, if I’m going to finance this and put it together, it’s kind of dangerous.’ It’s not going to have a soundtrack album, it’s not going to have all these revenue streams. It’s going to be something that I put out there because I feel like I have to, and I don’t have to rely on anybody else to let me.”
Well, don’t let us stop you!
