During a recent visit to the set of CBS' hit comedy 'The Big Bang Theory,' Simon Helberg, the man who wears Howard Wolowitz's tight pants, gave us an update on the status of the rumored sequel to Joss Whedon's cult web series, 'Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog.'

'Horrible' fans may have recognized Helberg as the villainous (and slightly damp) Moist, henchman to Neil Patrick Harris' Dr. Horrible in the original series, and as far as Helberg knows, he's in line to reappear for the sequel.During a recent visit to the set of CBS' hit comedy 'The Big Bang Theory,' Simon Helberg, the man who wears Howard Wolowitz's tight pants, gave us an update on the status of the rumored sequel to Joss Whedon's cult web series, 'Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog.'

'Horrible' fans may have recognized Helberg as the villainous (and slightly damp) Moist, henchman to Neil Patrick Harris' Dr. Horrible in the original series, and as far as Helberg knows, he's in line to reappear for the sequel.

"I have talked to Joss and some of the other guys at points and I know that there is something being written," Helberg revealed. "I don't know if it is written, and I don't know if it's for theatre, for TV, for internet or for film, but I know that everybody is very excited to do it."

Perhaps Dr. Horrible himself can shed some light on the sequel's preferred medium? MTV scored an interview with Neil Patrick Harris last week and the most awesome man on television seems to think that Whedon and co. are aiming for a feature film comeback.

"That's the plan," Harris confirmed to MTV. "They're talking all options, because they made the first 'Dr. Horrible' in five days on no budget at all ... You don't want to necessarily make the feature film be an $80 million giant movie, because it defeats the purpose of what the first film was made to be."

Harris' main concern was finding time in the original cast's busy schedules to shoot the sequel, a roadblock that Helberg also highlighted in our interview.

"I've heard mumblings about the story, and it sounds epic and amazing, and I think [the issue] is mainly about scheduling," he speculated. "And I'm assuming it's not happening this summer, because no-one's heard about it. If we could do something quick, a little thing, like as a teaser, that would be fun, but I'm just gonna wait for them to call. Joss Whedon fans will wait forever -- I know people are excited for it."

How long are you willing to wait for a 'Dr. Horrible' sequel? Are you hoping for a big screen return, or should Whedon stick to the web and stay true to the series' roots? Give us your thoughts below!
