It Monday once again, which means its time to listen to the two old lasdies of the Deep Six Podcast, Steven and Matt, bicker back-and-forth at each other about all of the nerd news to come out of the past week!
Of course we open this week's show with the quick hits, and the news that Toys 'R' Us will essentially close its doors for good within the next two months. Matt and Steven reminisce about what it was like to walk through the aisles upon aisles of action figures, board games, bikes, video games, and pretty much everything a kid could ever want.
That shoots us straight into the comic news for this week where Steven gives us the scoop on the mysterious Avenger, Voyager, and her recently revealed origin. He also hits on Marvel revealing new Fantastic Four costumes in Marvel-Two-In-One, and Chip Zdarsky signing an exclusive deal with Marvel! We close it out with this week's featured releases from PREVIEWSworld.
Next up is video game news with Matt, where we find out about Drake setting a new record by when he streamed 'Fortnite' on Twitch this past week. He also gives us some info on Jeff Goldblum's involvement in 'Jurassic World Evolution,' 'Shadow Of The Tomb Raider' getting a release date, and some more details on 'A Way Out.' Matt also tells us about 'Witcher's' Geralt, being the featured character of 'SoulCalibur 6,' and Chucklefish's "Harry Potter like" RPG getting a name.
Entertainment news takes us home as it broke this week that 'A Wrinkle In Time' director, Ava DuVernay, has been tapped to direct 'The News Gods' for Warner Bros and DC, Spike Lee eyeing a 'Nightwatch' film that would be set in Sony's Spider-Man universe, and Danny Boyle confirming that he is developing a film for the 'James Bond' franchise. There's also some Marvel film and television casting news related to 'Luke Cage' and 'Captain Marvel,' and the guys speculate on the recent post from Adi Shankar where he teased a new 'Bootleg Universe' One-Shot to come this Tuesday! And how could we have a podcast without talking about the brand new trailer for 'Avengers: Infinity War!?'

It's Monday, so you know what that means! Steven and Matt are back with a brand spankin' new episode of your favorite nerd news podcast, the Deep Six Podcast!
We start with the quick hits for this week featuring Mark Hamill's lack of knowledge of 'The Witcher,' but his willingness to be involved, as well as Amazon's Alex realizing everyone’s deepest, darkest fear, to Vin Diesel signing on to be part of Valiant comic's 'Bloodshot' film!
This launches us into comic news where we break down the announcement of yet another imprint of DC Comics, dubbed 'Black Label.' Following that Steven shares his excitement for Kelly Thompson's upcoming 'Nancy Drew' comic from Dynamite Entertainment, Marvel makes a major change to Groot in 'Infinity Countdown,' Deadpool joins Marvels 'Fresh Start' lineup along with Sentry, and we breakdown PreviewsWorld's featured new releases for the week!
Gaming news starts off with Matt paying tribute to the late CEO of GameStop, J. Paul Raines. We then turn it over to a follow up on President Trump's summit on violent video games, some PS4 updates and game delays, the slew of titles announced by Nintendo at their recent Nintendo Direct event, along with news on 'State of Decay 2,' 'Crash Bandicoot,' 'The Division 2,' and 'Fortnite!'
This weeks entertainment news closes out the show, but to be fair, we should have just called it the 'Avengers: Infinity War' roundup this week. From the fifteen different character covers for the recent oversized issue of Entertainment Weekly, to the reveal of nine new stills from the film, its runtime, that just begins to scratch the surface of our discussion of Marvel superhero epic due out next month. We also talk about a few articles that reveal information on some of the characters in the film, as well as Kevin Feige's comments about the finality of death in the MCU and what it means for 'Infinity War!'
