Giving Daredevil its Due

It’s been three weeks since Marvel dropped Daredevil on Netflix, and the nerdosphere is still head over heels for the show. Now that Netflix has announced a second season of their hit superhero series, Hard NOC Life returns to talk about how Marvel is taking over the streaming television game with Black Nerd Problems’ Jordan Calhoun (@jordanmcalhoun) — whose Daredevil piece you’ve probably read — and returning Hard NOC champ Raymond Chow.

Topics covered on the show include:

  • What advantages streaming and/or premium cable has over broadcast networks
  • Daredevil’s place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe
  • Vincent D’Onofrio’s genre-transcending performance as Wilson Fisk, aka the Kingpin
  • Worrying about what the success of Daredevil means for the rest of the Defenders series — and eventual second season
  • How the series tells stories through fight choreography and how Daredevil is like pro wrestling
  • Jordan’s day terrors involving the 2003 Daredevil film starring Ben Affleck
  • Redefining “dark and gritty” live action comic book adaptations
  • All this and more on Hard NOC Life! Watch it on your screen, hit “play,” and check this.
