Talking Roots with Arrow EP Marc Guggenheim

Talking Roots with Arrow EP Marc Guggenheim

December 13, 2017 0 By Laura Cerrone

Yes, you know Marc Guggenheim as the creator and executive producer of DC’s Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow. He’s also written the screenplay for Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters and the television show Eli Stone. Through all of these endeavors he somehow manages to find time to write X-Men: Gold for Marvel.

In the midst of his busy schedule, Marc made his way back to his hometown to meet fans and talk shop at the inaugural Ace Comic Con. Set in the newly renovated Nassau Coliseum, Marc set up table just a few places away from a picture of one of his idols, fellow Long Islander Billy Joel.

Throughout the weekend, Marc spoke on several panels, including what makes a good anti-hero with host Blake Garris and fellow panelist Jenny Frison and the current DC television universe with panel host Jeff Boucher.

We caught up with Marc for just a few minutes during the convention to talk about Long Island roots and its influence in his work for the latest episode of our podcast.
