people just having fun talking about a movie requires so many announcements to calm down or chill.It's a bit of stir craziness from having such little information to work with.
I won't lie, the temptation's been there to lock everything up until we actually have more concrete information to work on... Not that I'm actually going to lock it up, of course.
I guess... Maybe it's the confrontation of the fact our franchise's heroes aren't industructable anymore, and will be bowing out that's scaring us a little. We've actually been pretty lucky (Extreme Ghostbusters notwithstanding) that most of the Ghostbusters multimedia has featured the guys in their prime, running around, trapping ghosts and ducking or running through the dangers they're encountering.
We've been spoiled by Peter, Ray, Egon and Winston being "forever young"... We didn't have to confront the ageing... And mortality of them like Star Trek and Star Wars fans have had to through seeing the on-screen deaths of the crew of the Enterprise, or the members of the rebellion. We could console ourselves with Harold's death with the fact he still lived on in his films.
But knowing that this is in someways an ending for the original Ghostbusters (even should they not die by the film's closing reel) is one of the harder things to work through, going into the new film. It's hard to let go, I suppose.
Very Well Said. . I couldn't agree more. Hearing other people's thoughts on what they believe will be in this new movie helps releave a lot of that anxiety for me. I know that an important chapter will be closing on the characters we have come to love for all these years. Again if this movie does well enough it could give Ghost Corps the incentive to keep the IDW comics going. In those regards even if we see a chapter close in this new movie we could still see more adventures in the comics where the guys are still in their prime. Like I said there are a lot of stories to tell to fill in the gap between the stories in the comic to the story in this movie. All I do know is after how well the New Halloween, Ash Vs Evil Dead, The Creed Films and Kobra Kai went over. I have 100% confidence that this movie will be something special. Fingers Crossed.
