“We’ve dealt with them in a couple of ways. We’ve parodied them a lot. We’ve even had a couple of them, including Kevin Feige, on the show. So our relationship with them has been fantastic. Just like me I’ve been inspired by Star Wars for 40 years, I grew up reading Marvel Comics. And I still have a lot. If someone told me I would grow up to write Star Wars and Marvel would be very happy. “
