The executive producers of the new Marvel show Agent Carter are Michelle Fazekas and Tara Butters. Tara Butters also happens to be married to Marc Guggenheim, one of the executive producers of the DC show Arrow. When you get them all together, you get one interesting and hilarious interview.


Highlights include: Fazekas and Butters saying how much easier it is to write just eight episode mini-series than it is to write a potentially 22-episode season; Fazekas explaining how if they get a name wrong, they have to put money in the "StarkJar" (and Guggenheim explaining that they do the same with people who confuse Roy Harper with Ray Palmer); Guggenheim asking if they were willing to do a crossover with Arrow and how that would go (there is a reference to the X-Files/Picket Fences crossover that never was); and who Tara loves more, her husband or Michelle (her husband, but Michelle is No. 1 on her iPhone favorites list).


Also, this hilarious bit:

Butters: It would be interesting to see Haley Atwell and Stephen Amell in scenes together because in some ways she would be his most formidable foil.

Guggenheim: [Skeptically] Hmm, that's interesting! Why would you say that?

Butters: Because I feel like he wouldn't know what to do with her. And she would not have any time for his broodiness.

Guggenheim: So no romance?

Fazekas: Look, she was dating Captain America! I don't think he has the pecs for it!

Guggenheim: Tara, what subconscious or textual thing is behind the fact that your protagonist won't sleep with my protagonist?! What does that say about our marriage? I know that says something! Particularly since my protagonist sleeps with pretty much everything.

Butters: [Silence.]

Guggenheim: Let the record reflect that you totally dodged this question.
