Back in 2006, a group of angry young comic book nerds started a podcast with the focus of highlighting which comics that released that week were the must-read books but as the show grew in popular, it expanded into a show about video games, movies, television, comics, and everything else in between. Just remember one thing: We don't talk. We argue!

Things That Happened The Week Of 08/30/2015

No company this week had a more interesting week than Marvel.

In news that could very well change how the Marvel Cinematic Universe will shake out, we found out that Kevin Feige was apparently working under the thumb of crazed billionaire Vince McMahon Ike Perlmutter and to the relief of almost everyone in Hollywood, that is no longer the case. It was not all good news however, as we also mourned the passing of horror icon Wes Craven. We as a nation coped with Metal Gear Solid V and Jon Bernthal Punisher tweets.

That, however is only the tip of the iceberg so check below for every single bit of cool news that happened this week!
