Check out the All-New ANTiFanboy Podcast
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 12/06/2015

Hello and welcome to another edition of Things That Happened The Week Of, the 12/06/2015 edition.

This week really felt like a “B Week” in the sense that we got a lot of trailers that felt leftover in the sense of Captain America: Civil War and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice both dropped trailers in the last two weeks and films like Tarzan and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles would have just been squashed under their weight. Regardless, we did get some fun trailers and some interesting news like the possible leaked “NX controller”, the Iron Fist show actually being real, The whole FF 7 installment debacle, Civil War 2 and much much more. You can check it all out after the jump.
