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

Hello and welcome to the 5/22/2016 edition of Things That Happened The Week Of

This week all sorts of juicy news dropped, Marvel released a bunch of big names for Thor: Ragnarok, Daniel Craig is seemingly done (for real this time) with James Bond and DC announces a big restructuring in the wake of BvS comparatively disappointing box office numbers.

We got another stupendous Overwatch short and DC Rebirth news leaks alongside Ash Williams running for president. All this and much more after the jump!
