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 4/17/2016

Hello and welcome to another edition of ‘Things That Happened The Week Of’ for the week of 4/17/16.We had some fun stuff happen this week in the form of Doctor Strange teasers and Captain America: Civil War footage with some Suicide Squad stuff thrown in for good measure. That was all quite early in the week however, as we got some extra juicy Marvel news like the official sass-filled title of Spider-Man: Homecoming with possibly Michael Keaton as the Vulture, also all signs pointing to Netflix’s The Defenders coming soon. Gears of War 4 got a trailer and all that and more after the jump.
