When it comes to Marvel fans, they can’t just leave the rumours, but they peel their eyes open for them to come true. If you are one of them then here is some great stuff coming up for you. A new rumour suggests that a Ghost Rider project is in development at Marvel Studios for the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Marvel’s early financial struggles made them sell the film rights for various characters to different film studios. Now, the characters gradually are getting back to their parent’s lap.
Among those welcomed back was Ghost Rider, whose film rights were obtained back by Marvel in 2013. Ghost Rider lately got his two solo movies (Ghost Rider and Spirit of vengeance) under the banners of Sony and Columbia Pictures.
A full stop back then
After Marvel got back the character’s rights, they introduced him onto the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D series. Gabriel Luna portrayed Robbie Reyes aka Ghost Rider in season 3 of the series.
Everyone loved the role and Luna’s portrayal. Because of the popularity, the studios even announced a Ghost Rider series for Hulu, but later was abruptly cancelled right before filming was to begin.
But now with Kevin Feige as Marvel entertainment’s Chief Creative Officer, the future of Ghost Rider now lies in the hands of him and Marvel Studios.
Johnny Blaze is coming back.
According to The Direct, a Ghost Rider project is being developed by Kevin Feige and Marvel Studios. It is uncertain whether it could be a movie or live-action series.
It’s also claimed that this adaptation may not feature Robbie Reyes, the latest version of all the riders. So we can probably expect our classic Johnny Blaze back in action.
Adapting Johnny Blaze into the MCU would be an outstanding move. Besides, the timing could be just right with what is on the horizon.
Nightmare, who is believed to be the main villain of Doctor Strange’s sequel, is a common nemesis to Stephen Strange and Ghost Rider as well. So, the film could be the perfect stage for Johnny Blaze to make his appearance on the silver screen.
Moreover, Kevin Feige indicated that some unexpected characters would be showing up in Doctor Strange’s follow-up when he appeared at the New York Film Academy last year.
Also, the film is of the horror genre. So the odds are all in favour of him to make a debut.
They may even go with introducing the character in the upcoming WandaVision series. The series’ pivoting character, Scarlett Witch, is going to play an integral role in ‘Doctor Strange into the Multiverse of Madness’. The show’s exploration of different realities could become a natural setting for Ghost Rider.
