This past week in pop culture has been insane. For lack of better wording, it has been a crazy beginning of May for pop culture. From the second trailer release for Luke Cage to This is America by Childish Gambino — what happened this week?
Well, look no further, here’s a rundown!
This is America by Childish Gambino & Donald Glover on SNL
Childish Gambino made a huge debut this week — from being on Saturday Night Live to releasing his new single, This is America. The video — showing light to gun violence, the killing of unarmed African-Americans, and so much more in this is intense new Childish Gambino single.
If you have yet to see either his SNL or the video — we would suggest taking a gander. Both are incredible for different reasons. (Plus, the Saturday Night Live performance is fantastic!)
Luke Cage Season 2 Trailer (June 22nd, 2018)
Our favorite regular superhero finally is getting a second season. Marvel released a trailer earlier this week for season 2 of Luke Cage. What a world where we get all this Marvel goodness even before the year ends?
However, the trailer shows the new villain we will be seeing throughout the second season. We are excited to see more Luke Cage — in whatever aspect we get him — so, the trailer set off all sorts of excitement for us. If you have yet to see it, check it out — it’s good!
Teen Titans Go! (To The Movies) Trailer Release
The Teen Titans Go! franchise has been under fire for a few years now. Some people love the show, some people hate the show, and some simply just don’t care either way. However, the gang is getting a movie on Cartoon Network titled, Teen Titans Go! To The Movies.

While there is controversy about the series, in general, the trailer looks promising. We can say that it definitely looks fun and we can’t wait to see what’s in store for the film.
Arrested Development Season 5 Trailer
Fans have been waiting for Season 5 of Arrested Development since 2013. Not only did the ending of Season 4 leave on a cliffhanger, Arrested Development is hands down one of the best shows to come out of the 00s.
But, the time has finally come — we have an S5 trailer for the newest season of Arrested Development dropping on May 29th with 17 episodes on Netflix.
Ant-Man & The Wasp Trailer
A new trailer for the Ant-Man & The Wasp is here — with just about two months to go, we are inching closer to the anticipated sequel to the first film.
The trailer gives a lot, even a new villain… Ghost. We are not the only ones excited for the new Ant-Man & The Wasp and we cannot wait to see the film July 6th, 2018.
What happened this week in pop culture for you? What are you excited about — and what did we miss? Marvel is having a hot year already in 2018, so without a doubt, they are taking the comic book and pop culture world by storm.
