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 4/24/2016

Hello and welcome to this week’s edition of Things That Happened The Week Of for the week of 4/24/2016

Kind of a slow week, truth be told, we had all our Marvel news last week is prep for Civil War and we received more details on the now unofficially named ‘PlayStation Neo’ which will probably herald a new age where we upgrade our consoles like cell phones (because that’s the best part of having a smart phone).

We got our first glimpse of Rita Repulsa in Power Rangers and Joss Whedon extends a mea culpa to the troubled Age of Ultron production. The DC imprint Vertigo undergoes (another) big shake up and the Inhumans film is pulled from the release schedule. All that and more after the jump!
