I'd love to see another movie with Abby, Holtz, Gilbert and Patty. A crossover with the old team would be pretty sweet.

Yes, and one white, one black, one Hispanic, and one Asian. Ken Jeong anyone? Lin-Manuel Miranda perhaps?

I saw this yesterday. I said it's not surprising for movies that underperformed to get sequels. Most of the issue was the reaction not the movie.

I hope it happens and they connect it to the originals. It might not be a direct sequel but I'm sure they'll keep it and it's characters officially part of the franchise and canon now.

There's no way they'll ever write it off with all the hate it got. It would be seen as giving into to the controversy and the complaints.

I guess this means we can gear up for the 3rd entry of the Bay-verse TMNT?

Hopefully this new film wouldn't be more of the same drek we got last year. And if it is, at least IDW's still representing the brand in a good way.

This offers a clue:

http://ghostbustersnews.com/2017/07/...uring-cg-egon/

If they are actively talking about whether or not they should or will do a CGI Egon... and this says they are... we can kind of figure out where their head is for the new movie.

Can they even do a crossover in a new one? Didn't Answer the Call establish itself as a reboot or could that be retconned?


Answer the Call is also not "terrible" I half-watched it in a flight and it seemed generic/mediocre but not horrible.

I would check out a new GB with the old cast & a CGI Egon ghost cameo. As long as it's done tastefully & his family's into it, it could be a really cool tribute to him.

At first I was against a CGI Egon when I heard it but if it's something small it could work. Like if he appeared on a video screen to warn the the others of a threat or something where it wouldn't be so apparent that it was cgi.

A ghost would be ok too I guess. I remember some art people made when he passed away. One had him going into a ghost trap but that really did not make sense. The team would not capture him and put him into the containment unit.

I'm still disappointed they're going with the alternate universe thing to merge them. It's alright but I would have done that differently.

Although a long time ago before the reboot Dan Aykroyd mentioned a supposed plot for GB3 about a new team discovering alternate dimensions. It fits. It is about the supernatural.

I posted in the other thread one way it could work. It could be the female Ghostbusters find out Gozer has made the whole world forget the original Ghostbusters ever existed, and gave them other civilian identities. The female Ghostbusters could snap the original Ghostbusters out of it, then they all team up to put Gozer down for good.

That or a variation of it would work nice if they don't want to get into alternate dimensions. I'd kind of rather they didn't, myself.

Ya I remember. I said the government erased people's minds but I like your way better.

I'm not against alternate dimensions. They fit with the series. The reason I'm against the use for this situation is I don't like that the original GB and new GB do not exist in the same world.

I feel it discredits both. As in "you're not good enough so we're making you into an alternate universe".

I know it's Paul Feig's fault for not making it some kinda continuation but they could try a different way to connect them. It's not that hard. I guess it's up to Ivan Reitman or Dan Aykroyd. They control GhostCorps.

I would incorporate Egon's death into the movie rather than use a CGI Egon, unless it would appear in a flashback scene.

Yeah, the thing about making alternate dimensions/universes to try and reconcile things in a franchise -- and this comes up often in comics -- is that you don't actually end up doing that. You just end up compartmentalizing them and making things even more convoluted.

you already put far more thought and effort into something than the people who made the last movie.

The ATC girls are getting their own series in October.



I like the movie and I've loved the GB101 crossover with the original team, but I'm extremely tenuous about getting behind any GB comic that isn't by Burnham/Schoening/Delgado.

I feel the same way.

Judging by the cover art, they're going for that "Tumblr webcomic with heavily decompressed storyline" aesthetic.

Abby and Holtzmann's facial expressions are freaking me out.
