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 02/15/2015

So there wasn’t really one HUGE announcement in the world of popular media this. Just lots of little fun things that add up to a somewhat satisfying week of news. I mean, critics and fans mostly agree that we don’t exactly want our $60 to have less than a dozen hours of game play, let alone half that. But until sales figures are out we won’t know if this is just a lot of bluster or if we really mean it this time.

In other news, Jared Leto wants to be Fat Joker and plastic instruments may make a comeback. DC may have lost a media battle with a 11 year old girl and Spawn may start tearing throats in Mortal Kombat. Also Aquaman looks F*cking SCARY. All that and more down below
