IGN also caught up with Tara Butters, who confirmed her and Michele Fazekas' involvement on Agent Carter. “We’d be coming on as showrunners and being a part of the series,” she said. “We’re very excited to be included in the Marvel family and to be a part of ABC Studios.” Whether the period setting was an appeal for her, Butters answered, “Absolutely. It’s one of the things that drew Michele and I to the project, because she’s such a strong, wonderful character if you’ve seen the [Marvel] one-shot and we’re just very happy to be involved.” When it was mentioned that Butters' husband, Marc Guggenheim, is an executive producers on The CW's Arrow, she declared, “We’re a Marvel/DC family. We’re all inclusive!” What do you think?
