Ghostbusters Afterlife: hit theaters last month and featured numerous surprising bijous. Not only did the original Ghostbusters return for the new movie, but there were also some lucky stars in the blend. In 2019, a teaser for Ghostbusters Afterlife suggested at ties to Gozer, the villain of the 1984 original movie. Slavitza Jovan firstly played the character, and the heritage has now been continued by Olivia Wilde, who was underrated in the role. Lately, effects and makeup artist Arjen Tuiten has taken to Instagram to share in a behind-the-scenes print of Wilde.
Tuiten wrote “Sumarian. not Sumptuous. big difference’. Gozer makeup. What an honor it was with@oliviawilde being an absolute badass in5.5 hrs of makeup.

Speaking of iconic Ghostbusters villains: It’s clear Jason Reitman is hoping to make other Ghostbusters pictures in the future. He lately teased that an effect to Ghostbusters Afterlife could feature an appearance from Ghostbusters II’s Vigo The Carpathian, who was played by the late Wilhelm von Homburg back in 1989. In another recent interview with Uproxx, Reitman was asked about the Ghostbusters logo in Afterlife and whether to return it to the original rather than keeping the streamlined interpretation from Ghostbusters II. This led to further teases about a follow-up.
“I wish I could talk to you about that,”Reitman replied when asked if Egon changed the logo of the ghost holding up a”two” back to the original at some point.”I am just saying that is a plot that isn’t in this film and we’ve ideas moving forward.”He added,”Ghostbusters II, definitely canon. There are references to Ghostbusters II in Afterlife. We meet Ray working at Ray’s Occult. The stove from Ghostbusters II is in the kitchen in the farmhouse. There is actually lots of lost of Ghostbusters II details but nobody knows Ghostbusters II outside of Vigo the Carpathian and the Ghostbusters II totem. So there is this assumption that it isn’t canon but it’s definitely canon.”
