Feig tweeted the photo with the hashtag #whoyougonnacall, the Ghostbusters' well-known catch phrase. Earlier, he included #whatyougonnawear with the photo of the uniforms, and #whatyougonnadrive with the photo of the Ecto-1.
Earlier today another cast photo surfaced on the video games forum NeoGaf, supposedly taken on set by a superfan.

The Verge's Chris Plante noted that Kate McKinnon's look strongly resembles Egon Spengler as he appeared in The Real Ghostbusters cartoon. Her blonde pompadour and round-rimmed glasses are a dead giveaway.

The reveal was conveniently timed during the San Diego Comic-Con, a mecca for all things nerdy. Bill Murray, one of the original Ghostbusters, made the rounds promoting his upcoming film Rock the Casbah, interacting with fans in a way that only he can — including signing a fan's forehead.
