The Weekly Podioplex: April 26, 2016

On an all-new edition of The Weekly Podioplex, Mowgli remained king of the box office jungle as the Huntsman fell on his axe, and the Man-Cub faces some competition from comedies as the box office prepares for #TeamCap and #TeamIronMan to wage Civil War. Meanwhile, the home entertainment slate clears the decks with some winter wares and an animated return to the three-hour tour, and the chimichangas get delivered on streaming by the Merc with a Mouth. Cap it all off with a look at May's coming attractions, and you have a new edition of The Weekly Podioplex, only on The Chronic Rift Network.
