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 3/13/2016

Hello everyone and welcome to the 3/13/16 edition of Things That Happened the Week Of AKA the week where we all movie Spider-Man for the fifth time and still collectively lost our god damned minds.I mean that is far and away the biggest and coolest thing to happen in our super hero bubble right? I do find it strange that seeing Spider-Man got us this excited even though this isn’t anything new at this point. I guess Marvel really does have us by the stones don’t they? We also started the week off with the surprising and swift cancellation of Fable Legends which for all intent and purposes looked very close to being complete, along with the proposed shutting down of Lionhead studios, the game developers. JK Simmons got cast as Commissioner Gordon and one of my favorite comics is coming to TV are just a few of the notable things to happen this week, check out the rest below.
