Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, and a dozen others streaming services compete for our money and attention. And now DC Comics has thrown their hat in the ring. DC Universe offers more than the DC content already released – DC Universe plans to release original content and give fans access to their digital comics, members-only merch, all in one place. But what fans need to know is what can they expect from the DC original content, what digital items will be available and how much is going to cost? NerdBastards dives in to give fans the answers they need to decide if yet another streaming service is worth it.
Even among the most hardcore fans of Marvel’s Netflix shows, Iron Fist ranks low. Iron Fist was rushed, and it showed in both writing and fight choreography, as well as crew preparations. But fans saw hope for the character in Defenders with the chemistry between actors Finn Jones and Mike Colter who play Danny Rand, Iron Fist, and Luke Cage, respectively. Still, the character fell short of fan expectations. That is until Danny showed up for an episode of Luke Cage. Finally, fans saw an Iron Fist they could root for. A more grounded character. But what was still missing from the character, and will Iron Fist Season 2 give it to us?

Luke Cage season 2 rocked the Netflix when it dropped over a week ago. People scrambled to watch it, and quickly people were enamored with it. One thing people loved the most? The music.
Today, we’re going to do a comprehensive collection of the music, and give a few notes on why they were so good. The main focus will be on the live performances, as they lasted the longest and meant the most to the episodes. However, a few honorable exceptions will pop up.
Only episodes with confirmed music will be listed. There also will be spoilers, so turn back now if that turns you off.
Otherwise, sit back, relax, and learn even more about the fantastic music of Luke Cage season 2. (more…)
While Marvel has become the summer blockbuster overlord when it comes to films, the company had begun to lose steam on its Netflix series front. Daredevil season 1 and 2 and the first season of Jessica Jones were wild hits, but things seemed to stagnate from there. Luke Cage, first seen on Jessica Jones, received lukewarm reviews on his own series and Iron Fist was relatively panned by critics and fans alike. The Defenders brought things back up, but things from there (The Punisher, Jessica Jones season 2) have wavered in that gray area of “good, but kinda slow and forgettable”.
Then Luke Cage season 2 releases on Netflix and the whole game is changed again. (more…)
