How much of a role do you think the OGB’s will have in the new movie? Full role? Extended cameo? Show up at the end?I think that’s the biggest draw for most fans. What are the boys in grey we know and love doing in the here and now? I am leaning on extended cameo. Like they play a part during the second half of the film and of course participate in the finale.
As much as I know this is intended as a ‘passing of the torch’ film, it’s the originals I’m most excited to see.
It occurs to me that we will not only feel Egon’s presence during the film, but I think we will also feel the rest of the OGs presence even when they are not on screen. I know this is an odd way of looking at it or odd phrasing, but I think this movie is going to take us on an interesting journey and slowly answer the questions fans have been thinking about for 31 years. We will be invested in the mystery of the town, Phoebe’s investigation finding the lab and old Ghostbusters equipment, Trevor finding and fixing the Ecto 1, Callie either learning or excepting who her father was, Grooberson telling the kids of the New York Crossrip Event. I think they will build up the anticipation of seeing the remaining OG’s to a point that it will be very satisfying when they show up.
I am thinking in terms of screen time something like the amount of screen time Henry Cavill had in Justice League or Tom Holland’s Screen Time in the Avengers Films. That is the kind of screen time I am expecting if not more. Forgive the crude comparisons I know those are very different kinds of films, but I am not sure how else to describe how I think the Original Ghostbusters will fit into Afterlife. Fun to speculate though.
