New Ghostbusters Villain Revealed

Well, there’s something strange in the neighborhood… or at the local convention. Over the weekend at the latest Toy Fair, Mattel and Sony Pictures have revealed the first look at the main villain of the reboot to the Ghostbusters franchise and it’s something all too familiar.

Confirmed at #Mattel this morning that this is the main villain in the new #Ghostbusters movie. #ToyFair #TF16 #NYTF

Wait so the Ghost inside the logo for the Ghostbusters is the main villain… that’s a bit wacky. Does that mean the Villain came before the logo or is that just a slight coincidence? This one just doesn’t sit right with me, he’s too cartoonish he looks like something straight from the animated series The Real Ghostbusters or Casper’s friend in Casper the Friendly Ghost rather than something that was made for the silver screen. I hope he looks much better in the film than he does here or that could just be another nail in the coffin for this remake.

For the record, even with this bit of news, I still hold on big hopes for this film. However nothing is showing me that it will be great, all signs are pointing to the river of slime. We are now in February and we haven’t seen a trailer yet for Ghostbusters, why is sony holding out on us? We are only 4 months out from release and I can’t think of another movie that has waited this long to hit us with some footage. I sense some fear in the eyes of the execs.
