Marvel’s Ghost Rider has been introduced in Agents of SHIELD in the form of Robbie Reyes, but a lot of fans are sure that the TV universe is largely ignored by the MCU. What’s interesting is, a rumor is going around that we could be getting Ghost Rider in the established MCU soon.
This comes from insider Daniel Richtman:
Richtman also comments that it’s likely that the MCU will use a different version from Johnny Blaze or Robbie Reyes; which leaves us with Danny Ketch. Then again, it’s likely that we could get another Ant-Man situation where Blaze will act as a mentor to Ketch, just like he did in the comics.
No details have come out on whether this new Ghost Rider will be in a series or in a film, but with the CGI required to bring the character to life, I hope they stick to keeping him in a movie. Just looking at Gabriel Luna’s Ghost Rider, you can tell they have to use CG sparingly, seeing as they’re working on a TV budget.
We’ve had two Ghost Rider films with Nicholas Cage as the star, and though I’d prefer Marvel didn’t make him reprise Johnny Blaze, I would love it if they have him in the movie in some form. This is just wishful thinking on my part, but I would actually love Cage to be the main villain.
We don’t know much about this MCU’s Ghost Rider, but some are hoping he gets introduced in the upcoming Blade movie with Mahershala Ali. I guess the two do fit the profile for supernatural heroes, and I think a team-up would be a fine introduction. Maybe the sequel can introduce a whole new cast of Marvel Knights including the likes of Daredevil and Punisher.
The next Marvel film coming out is Black Widow and it hits theaters May 1, 2020.
