Welcome to a new episode of Afronerd Radio's Grindhouse podcast-airing every Saturday at 6pm EST.  Join your favorite podcast "Court of Owls" (Dburt, the Uncanny Daryll B., Claire Lanay and Capt. Kirk) as they provide their unique analyses to the following "nerdy" phenomena: in the wake of box triumphs such as Deadpool and Logan, DC wants to explore R-rated comic book translations to film (duh!);Dburt checked out Skull Island and the Monsterverse is off to the races (but does it include Pacific Rim?) actor, John Cho (Harold & Kumar, Star Trek, Sleepy Hollow) gets candid about race and casting decisions in Hollywood; Sam Jackson tells you how he really feels about Black British actors taking American film roles (John Boyega begs to differ); early reviews of Netflix' Iron Fist are in and.....we'll talk about; actress, Zazie Beetz (Atlanta) has been cast to portray the Marvel mercenary character, Domino in the forthcoming Deadpool sequel (what happened to Janelle Monae?); maybe we'll talk about Dr. Ben Carson (did you see Trevor Noah's Dr. Strange as Carson photoshop pic....gotta laugh) and his misplaced slavery analogies (we didn't have a Mid Week show so.....let's see if it fits); more impressions of FX' Legion TV series....is it too psychedelic to be understood?  Or is it just great visually complex television?;  the title for the next X-men TV property has been released-Gifted; how many delays will we give James Cameron for the Avatar sequel before the public stops caring? ; Ironheart makes her cinematic debut via an MIT admissions video; iconic film/TV producer, Fred Weintraub passes; And lastly, Stan Lee gets critiqued by the SJW-PC police for tweeting out a comic cover in homage of Women's Day (really?).
