New ‘Ghostbusters’ Details Shed Some Light on the Shady Villain, Possible Multiverse Plans

The first trailer for Ghostbusters offered a sizable preview of Paul Feig’s upcoming reboot, giving us a peek of the team’s proton packs in action, the new ghosts and that goofy receptionist who kind of looks like Thor. But we still haven’t seen the film’s elusive villain, played by Neil Casey — and we still don’t know much about the guy at all, really.

And that fact is seemingly supported by his Marvel contract, which does not include another solo outing beyond Iron Man 3.

Marvel Will Call the Creative Shots on ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’

The idea of seeing Spider-Man in the MCU used to seem totally crazy, but here we are. Tom Holland’s web-slinger is set to make his debut in Captain America: Civil War in just a couple of weeks, and early reviews have been overwhelmingly positive about the new Spidey.
