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 3/27/2016

Hello and welcome to this weeks edition of Things that happened the week of and I wonder what we are going to talk about? Hmmmmm…

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice pretty much took over the internet this weekend STARTING on Monday when fans were able to see screenings of the film and the feedback was…. not great. The film sits at a 29% currently on Rotten Tomatoes right now and trust me, there will be plenty to talk about on that front.

In other news we got some awesome trailers for movies that look like a direct response to the bleakness of BvS like The Lego Batman Movie, the Overwatch short film Recall and others. We had more NX leaks then found out the whole thing was a fraud and DC dropped more Rebirth news. All that and more after the jump!
