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 5/1/2016

Hello and welcome to the 5/1/2016 edition of Things That Happened The Week Of AKA The week where Nintendo officially broke my brain.

It wasn’t just Nintendo that had a not-so-great week, It seems like directors are leaving or thinking about leaving big DC film projects the Inhumans film gets shelved and more and more companies are dropping out of SDCC making it seems like a mere comic book convention. Gross! That’s not so say that good thing’s didn’t happen this either, A Punisher show got announced for Netflix, we got sweet new Spider-Man footage and actors like RDJ and Chris Evans seem like they really really want to keep being superheros. We have the May offerings for Games with Gold, PS Plus and much more after the jump!
