Things That Happened The Week Of

Hi and welcome to this weeks edition of Things That Happened The Week Of AKA the one where my computer broke.I’m sure there were other more important things that happened but honestly, having your computer slowly die a gruesome death is pretty frustrating. Anyway on with the news!

We hit you with a 1-2 Combo of Iron Fist – Special Origins and ANTiFanboy Singles this week for great exclusive content. We also got some great trailers in the form of The Bad Batch, Ghost in the Shell, and Thor’s triumphant return with his roommate.

More bad news for Batman fans as talks with Matt Reeves are reportedly breaking down. Mel Gibson is circling directing Suicide Squad 2 of all things and rumors persist that Ben Affleck is looking to get out of the Batman business altogether. Spawn side characters Sam and Twitch are getting a TV show, Scalped has cast its Dash Badhorse, Legend of Zelda is getting a season pass (Hint hint ANTiFanboy Singles) and a ton of comic book news all after the jump! Enjoy.
