We broke the news during Toy Fair that Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters would feature a ghost that looks exactly like the logo spook tied to the storied franchise.
His name is Rowan, and “SNL” veteran Neil Casey will be playing the character.
But before he’s full of ectoplasm, Rowan is allegedly HUMAN. According to the press release for new Funko action figures, the character is being referred to as “Rowan’s Ghost.”
Rowan is allegedly a convicted murderer who turns into a ghost after his execution is hit by a supercharged electrical storm. This gives him the power to raise an army of other ghosts, which could be made up of famous villains throughout history.
This idea is echoed in the “Ghostbusters” video game, in which Civil War vets haunt a museum.
In theaters July 15th, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, Kristen Wiig and Leslie Jones will be strapping on newly designed proton packs to save New York.
