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 05/31/2015

Back onto a regular schedule this week as I bring to you, all the awesome things that you may have missed for the week of 5/31/2015. 

E3 is heating up and while it will mostly take over everything in a weeks 1-1/2 weeks time the cracks are starting to show, Fallout, XCOM, Tomb Raider and more have made appearances to get you hyped up for the biggest hype event of the year. On the TV end we have some rumors about Jason Statham being in talks for the Netflix Daredevil show, then sort of making fun of them later that same day. The Scream TV show showed off the new “Ghostface” mask and weirdly I kind of like it. Terrible Civil War rumors that I hope aren’t true and Bendis takes on Iron Man and much much more this week! Lets get started.
