(for nerds/NOC, etc); Dburt binges on Stan Lee's UK crime drama series, Lucky Man as it enters its second season; Netflix appears to be stuck in Whitewashing quicksand with the trailer for the manga/anime themed Death Note-and a Black cast member Keith Stanfield (Get Out, Atlanta) stirs up a nontroversy as well; according to recent EW interview, film director, Brett Rattner posits that the movie review aggregrator site, Rotten Tomatoes is going to be the ruination of the film industry; Hulu's forthcoming Trumpian style (we kid....sorta) dystopian adaptation of the 1985 novel, The Handmaid's Tale has a full trailer that hit the interwebs; more disappointing news concerning Scarlett Johansson's take on Motoko Kusanagi and the latest clip of the upcoming Ghost in the Shell film; our impressions of an improved Justice Leagure trailer....perhaps; And lastly more tidbits (is Michael Shannon possibly up for the role of Cable for Deadpool 2?; Assassin's Creed the TV series; The Pro film adaptation and we finally find out what made Thor the Unworthy).  Call in live at 646-915-9620.
