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 1/24/2016

Hello and welcome to the January 24th edition of ‘Things that happened the week of’ AKA the week DC decided to take over.

There was a whole slew of cool and notable stuff that happened this week, most of all that Suicide Squad trailer that we all loved, then thought about it and decided we merely liked it because it reminded us of Guardians of the Galaxy but with Harley Quinn in booty shorts. But that’s far from everything, we got some delays that seem like they hurt but nobody but the most hardcore of Star Wars fans can get bummed over episode VIII being delayed when it’s already coming out in 2017. DC is also planning another reboot because things are going just fine over there.

All that and more right below.
