New Interview with Stephen McFeely and Christopher Markus!

Collider posted a new interview with Stephen McFeely and Christopher Markus earlier today that covers the CAPTAIN AMERICA films as well as AGENT CARTER that is worth a read.

I've read a few interviews featuring McFeely and Markus now, but this interview is probably my favorite because of the questions Collider decided to ask. I also love the response to the constant questioning of who Peggy is going to marry.  (As eager as I am to find out who she marries, I agree with the frustration they have with the constant questioning.)

The best part of the interest, though, is probably the Spider-man mention.

Here are a couple of tidbits from the interview:
Can you talk about playing with the greater architecture of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and being able to know what’s happening in Avengers, to know what you guys have planned for Cap 3 and some of the other movies, and then weave that into what you’re doing here?
MARKUS:  It’s fun.
MCFEELY:  A light touch, but we do try to do it.
MARKUS:  Yeah, but you really only need to drop the tiniest bit of hint and its connected.  You don’t have to go, “Howard Stark’s wearing the same pants that Tony wears!”  It is a crazy kind of - Everything is enhanced just by the knowledge that its all connected. What will be a completely undisclosed scene in Cap 3, and a perfectly good scene, suddenly, with what I know about this and this… It’s like, “This is a great scene now and we didn’t have to write it any better.”  It’s just because of all the connections.
There are these larger questions of Peggy building a family at some point in between where she is now and The Winter Soldier.  Is that something, ifAgent Carter gets future seasons, you plan to answer in the show?
MCFEELY:  We like to raise the question… Well, I find it funny – this is a bit of a tangent - because I read a bunch of reviews over the first two weeks but it was all, “What a great, empowering show.”  And the whole feminist conversation, I really like that.  And then the next week was, “Who is she going to marry?”  And I was like, “Is that the same publication?”  We always knew that if people really caught it in The Winter Soldier, and we introduce enough candidates in Agent Carter it would come up.  I’m perfectly happy for it to come up now. But if you told me we had three more seasons, we’d probably get closer.
With Winter Soldier you guys and the Russos were so much on the same page with the throwback ’70s thriller.  Now that you’re on Civil War do you feel like it will be in that same vein or do you want to make another turn?
MCFEELY:  Every Captain America movie has a genre and Civil War is the musical.  [Laughs] No, I think part of the reason for bringing back us and bringing back the Russo brothers is because Marvel is very pleased with Winter Soldier aesthetically.  I think it’s a really adult movie.  It’s very well made, the brothers know what they’re doing, and that’s partly the texture of the movie.  You can argue it’s the most realistic of the Marvel movies, whatever that is to you.  I think it’s fair to say that a Russo brothers movie will stay in that vein.”
