Ok, so you may remember a few day s ago we posted new images from the Ghostbusters reboot toy line that we suspected gave us a look at two big villains in the movie (here).

Well we have an update….

This image…

… is reportedly confirmed as depicting the main villain in the movie – according to Bleedingcool he’s ‘Rowan’s Ghost’.

So we’re putting one and one together and getting five here, but we’re guessing Neill Casey’s villain is called Rowan and at some point he becomes, yes, a ghost.

We aren’t sure how we feel about this – he looks like the ghost in the no-ghost logo – will this be the origins of the no-ghost logo in the movie or perhaps that’s why he takes this form, to mock the Ghostbusters?? – but he doesn’t feel like a Ghostbusters ghost to us.

Now, obviously  we have no idea what the look and feel of the new movie will be, so we’re holding off being too critical… but we are honestly a little lost about it.

Will he Mr Stay Puft sized, perhaps?

Oh and Slimer is in the movie too… here’s a toy.

Let us know your thoughts.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
