MCU is getting bigger with every new Superhero addition. Recently, Marvel has said that it is considering bringing back some major characters like Ghost Rider and Blade. With these new possibilities, Director Mark Neveldine of Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance says he’d want to see Ghost Rider scorch through The Avengers and “burn them to waste.”
Mark Neveldline Believes That Ghost Rider Can Beat The Avengers
The director of Ghost Rider, Mark has expressed his desire to see Ghost Rider smash the MCU Avengers. Neveldine helmed the 2011 superhero follow-up, which starred Nicolas Cage as Ghost Rider/Johnny Blaze. It was produced by 20th Century Fox, who controlled the licenses at the time. Cage initially played the role in Mark Steven Johnson’s 2007 film Ghost Rider. It fared well enough at the box office to warrant a sequel. Johnson also helmed the Ben Affleck-led Daredevil. Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, a 2011 sequel directed by Neveldine, starring Cage, Idris Elba, Ciarán Hinds, and Christopher Lambert.
Ghost Rider And The Marvel Relation
Unfortunately, Ghost Rider Sequel was not well received and did not make a lot of money. Even though the fact that it has become something of a classic film since its release. Later, Ghost Rider made an appearance on ABC’s Agents of SHIELD. The show centered on a modern character, Robbie Reyes (as played by Gabriel Luna). He suffers from a different strain of the Ghost Rider curse and drives a vehicle rather than a motorbike. The character featured in several episodes of the series but has not been seen in a live-action production since. However, speculations that he would return continue to circulate, with Cage recently expressing his admiration for Ghost Rider.
When questioned about the experience in working on Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance by ComicBookMovie, Neveldine commented that “Johnny Blaze will continue to expand his reputation” and cited his positive experience filming the picture, noting that “working with Nic Cage was better than you can imagine.” “Ghost Rider should flame through the Avengers and lay them to waste,” the filmmaker says, lamenting the lack of an R-rated Ghost Rider film.
Ghost Rider Has A Reputation To Maintain
Since its inception in 1972, Ghost Rider has taken on several identities, the first of which was Johnny Blaze. Danny Ketch, Alejandra Jones, Robbie Reyes, and Kushana are among the characters that have carried the Ghost Rider curse (or Spirit of Vengeance) in various ways as the traditional anti-hero. In recent years, the character has synced and even entered organizations such as the Avengers. It may make it problematic if he were to burn through them as Neveldine intends.
The darker Marvel/Netflix series like Daredevil, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, The Punisher, and Iron Fist are now housed on Disney+, where Marvel Studios is re-establishing their street-level superheroes. Moon Knight, another MCU character due to debut this month in that darker part of the world, will continue to pave the way for future characters of that quality, including Ghost Rider. Whether Marvel chooses to employ Cage, Luna, or start over, the Spirit of Vengeance will very certainly return in the MCU.
