Major Spoilers Poll of the Week
You may have heard that Sony Pictures has set up a Ghostbusters production banner called Ghost Corps to capitalize on the fervor/excitement regarding an all female Ghostbusters movie. The idea is to have another movie in production featuring an all-male cast, with Channing Tatum set to produce and possibly star. While many of us are troubled by the boy vs. girl nature of franchise, and even more troubled that the Interwebz seems to be taking sides on who is going to “win”, the idea that the original Ghostbusters (Egon, Peter, Ray, and Winston) have franchised their company to others is rather interesting. Which brings us to this week’s big question…
Dr. Scott Robson from Fort Hays State University sits down with Stephen to discuss where communication fails in comics, television, radio, and social media, and how we all need to actively engage with one another.
