    His family would've had to have given permission for his likeness to be used in the film. If they were okay with it, I think that's all that needs to be said. And you should probably stay in your lane.

    Yes, but HE doesn't get a say in who uses his face. I don't care what kind of situational ethics or plastic fan-boy moral code you subscribe to, that's wrong.

    If I could help my kids or grandkids after I'm dead by using my digital likeness, so be it. 

    So YOU say. I say, once I'm done on this mortal coil, the Mako Bar is closed. That's the problem right there. WE are here to make that call. How do we know Ramis WANTED to be in another Ghostbusters? Even if he did, how do we know he'd want to be in THIS one.

    Hell, they've been throwing money at Murray for 30 years, and by all reports, HE still only barely drug his butt back.

    And make no mistake, this isn't being done out of love OR respect. They're using a dead man's face to put butts in seats that might not otherwise show up. That makes a man into a commodity, and there is no connotation, whether selling movie tickets, action figures, or picking cotton under which that's EVER been a good thing.

    Look, as a middle aged guy who remembers see the original movies in the theater as a kid, I loved the story/ending of the movie.  I was not a hater of the 2016 version of the movie - I enjoyed it for what it was.  But Afterlife was far and away the best sequel to the 1984 original.  I would love to see another movie with the younger actors.  However, if that is the last Ghostbusters movie we get, it was the perfect ending.  As for the CGI Egon, it was done respectfully.  They got permission from his family, were very tasteful with the CGI, and did NOT try to dub in/ replace his voice.  He was a silent specter who was just trying to hang on long enough to protect his family and friends.  When he "said" goodbye to everyone at the end, both my wife and I teared up. 

    P.S.  I also love that it was a play on the Ghostbusters III script(s) from the early 2010s where Venkman died at the beginning of the movie (since Murray wanted nothing to do with the franchise anymore) and only appeared at the end to help save the day.

    I never said the movie wasn't going to be good (I DO have my doubts), I just think using a dead actor's likeness in a movie is, frankly, kinda disgusting.

  4. I didn't even know Trachtenberg was attached to this . . . but it kinda makes sense. Everything I've heard about this movie gives me a vibe like they just scooped up a generic Sy-Fy Channel movie of the week script and retrofitted it for the Predator franchise, ala 10 Cloverfield Lane.

    Either that, or they want some of that sweet, sweet Asylum money so they're making their OWN mockbusters now.

  5. Nice looking figures, but I'm still a little gun-shy as far as video-game based figures go. Loved Hasbro's Overwatch, but they up and cancelled it on me without ever giving us a Winston OR a D.Va mech. Fortnite was a little "out there" but still cool, but distribution in my area was so spotty in the beginning, half the line had passed before I could find them with anything approaching consistency.

    So yeah, I'm played out on game figures.

    Don't quote me on this but I believe the network/producers said before that they wanted to keep Superman in his own world.  They didn't want Superman hanging out in the same worlds as The Flash or Batwoman.

    That was a creative decision for Superman's show. Remember, it's been well established that A Superman does still exist in the Arrowverse, so the question is still valid.

    Frankly, having seen most of these shows, I'm pretty happy keeping Superman and Lois, and Stargirl, well away from them.

    Not "freeze". How 'bout just STOP?!

    For that matter so is Javicia. That poor girl is gonna get pigeon holed into this series for life. She's a better actress and, from what I hear, a much better person (and better looking, to boot) than Ruby Rose ever was. Her only hope is that this thing gets canned ASAP so she can move on to bigger and better things.

    I won't be lured into a who's prettier argument. Take away the tramp-stamps and Ruby is pretty easy on the eyes, and while the suit doesn't do Javicia any favors (especially the mask), she's no slouch either.

    I DO agree that Javicia would do better to just follow Ruby's lead and cut and run. I myself occasionally fall into the trap of equating Javicia the actress with the generally horrible quality of season 2, just as many still place their blame on Rose for the dumpster fire that was season 1 (at least after the Crisis crossover), and that's really unfair to both.

    Through no fault of the cast, the show is just a hot mess. Poorly conceived, horribly executed, it NEEDS to go.

    Err....I kinda feel like the roles should be reversed. If you'd have told me that between the two, one would be cast as an experienced BA Indiana Jones type explorer and one was the partner (i.e. sidekick) I woulda totally got it wrong.

    I can see how you would get that impression. I mean Holland HAS been playing Iron Man's sidekick since Civil War. Why should ersatz Indiana Jones be any different?

    I'm saying it's been two years... Let it go.

    This is true. Guilty or not, Ruby should move on while she can. For better or worse, there's a thin line between being a Hollywood whistle-blower and being the next Sean Young.

    And hey, the last time I checked, Ruby was still getting paid to make movies, while team Batwoman was struggling to keep a show everybody hates and nobody's watching afloat.

    Point, Ruby Rose.
