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 5/8/2016

Hello and welcome to this weeks edition of Things That Happened The Week Of for the week of 5/8/2016.

Obviously the big story here is that Captain America: Winter Soldier released this week and so everything is taking a back seat as a result. The good news however, is that means the summer movie season has officially begun and I break down every movie worth your time whether it’s a big budget superhero film, or an indy darling. In addition to me slaving away for the masses; we got our first look at the Power Ranger suits, found our “young” Han Solo, got a double dose of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare and Battlefield 1 trailers and delve deeper into DC’s sexual harassment scandal.

All that and more after the jump. Enjoy!
