Zombie Penny or Robot Penny: How can Felicia Day return in Dr. Horrible 2?

When we got a moment to talk to Felicia Day at SDCC, she was full of excitement for the possibilities of bringing back Penny, Dr. Horrible's tragic love interest. We suggested Zombie Penny, but she was more into Robot Penny.

Oh, and there are no spoilers whatsoever, because none of this is actually set in stone. Day said:

Okay, Zombie Penny. I like that one. I get a lot of pitches. I personally am a fan of Robot Penny, because I think that would be a cool make-up design, making me into a robot. I mean who knows? I'd probably still be dead in the ground. But probability is hopefully more than zero that I would be appearing in it.


In any case, we think we helped nudge Day towards a combination of Zombie Penny and Robot Penny, perhaps akin to Robocop. She hinted that she might be pitching this to Joss Whedon, who was standing nearby. Make it happen!

And Day told us what's next for The Guild, including more delving into Fox's relationship, less of an arc this year, and lots of surprising twists and turns:

We also talked to Simon Helberg, who plays Moist, and demanded to know when Moist was getting his own spin-off. Helberg played coy and tried to pretend that he didn't think Moist was spin-off material. "Do you really want to see that much Moist? I don't know. I'll take whatever I can get as Moist now. He's pretty repulsive. It's hard. When you're that damp, you can't be around too many other people." He also didn't think Moist would be getting into the Evil League of Evil, for some reason. "I'm rooting for him... but it's not that high in demand, to dampen things. He can't snap [his fingers], he can't clap because his hand's slipping, it's probably hard to put a shirt on. So he's got his struggles. But I root for him."
