Iron Fist is cancelled, Titans is launched, and Superman returns to The CW! All this and more on a new episode of Hard NOC Life.
Keith and Shawn start by going into why Netflix cancelled Iron Fist. First, Keith explains why he has complicated feelings about it (1:00), and Shawn describes how they should just turn it into Daughters of the Dragon (3:00). In happier superhero TV news, they go over all of the developments we’ve been seeing for The CW’s annual DC crossover, including costume reveals for both Batwoman and Superman and a return to Smallville (10:00)! Then a discussion about streaming services goes off on a tangent about how corporations view fan culture (19:00). Eventually, they get to reviewing Titans on DC Universe (27:30) and why some things don’t have to be R-rated (32:30). Finally, Shawn has some thoughts about the racial politics around The CW’s new Charmed reboot (38:45).
What’s Nerd Poppin’ this week (44:00): Shuri by Nnedi Okorafor and Leonardo Romero, Daredevil Season 3 on Netflix, and Gmorning, Gnight by Lin-Manuel Miranda and Jonny Sun.
