I'm still waiting for the official announcement. I was hoping costumes would be revealed by the anniversary showings. With ATC we got them right off the bat.
Indeed, but 2020 is taking such a significantly different approach to the marketing. With 2016, excluding the stuff that was leaked that wasn't supposed to be, they really fell over themselves in showing off what the film would feature... And while that did help us prop makers and documentors, and helped to reveal the process in making a film, it ultimately ended up leaving little to actually be surprised by when the film came out.
Jason's described this film as a "gift", and is playing it very close to his chest, I suspect he is more concious about doing it right, and keeping the surprises for when people sit down in the theatre.
So I wouldn't expect any sort of official costume or prop reveal before the first full trailer, I don't think showing that stuff off on Twitter is his style, little glipses of some things? Yes, but full reveals? Nope.
Rick is so far gone from hollywood id say theres zero chance but man would it be awesome.
It would be unnecessary. I've always been in the "Rick wasn't really needed in Ghostbusters II
" camp, and I'll reaffirm that he's even less integral to the new movie. If it doesn't serve the plot to feature him, then the film shouldn't, and I respect his reasons for retiring from Hollywood. The man's earned his rest.
