The Weekly Podioplex: May 10, 2016

On an all-new edition of The Weekly Podioplex, #TeamCap and #TeamIronMan tore up the box office as Captain America: Civil War broke records worldwide for Disney and Marvel. With little competition this week combined with critical and audience acclaim, the storm will likely continue for another weekend. But the Marvel influence doesn't stop there as the Deadpool, the Merc with a Mouth, brings home the chimichangas on DVD and Blu-Ray this week. Add a side of classic television for your home cinema, a dash of undead Jane Austen for on demand streaming, and a little extra spice for flavor, and you have a new edition of The Weekly Podioplex, only on The Chronic Rift Network.
