This week, DC TV Classics is crossing over with The Nerds of Color’s Hard NOC Life podcast to bring you part two of Keith’s one-on-one conversation with Smallville co-creator Al Gough! At The Nerds of Color, Al and Keith discussed the need for more diversity in Hollywood, the creation of the AMC martial arts epic Into the Badlands, and Al’s experience working with Hong Kong cinema superstars like Jackie Chan and Jet Li. For DC TV Classics, the two of them take a deep dive into the history of Smallville, The CW show that kicked off the network’s current superhero boom. Al shares anecdotes from the casting of the show’s iconic leads to working with Christopher Reeve and how Smallville compares to the current TV incarnations of the DC Universe.
Before the interview, Keith, Britney, and Desiree share some news including their reactions to The Flash/Supergirl musical episode, the passing of Swamp Thing co-creator Bernie Wrightson, and Smallville alum Michael Rosenbaum’s entry into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
