Ghost Rider hasn’t seen a treatment on the silver screen in a long time. Since Marvel acquired the rights from Sony fans are hoping that will change. Several rumors have started swirling about the project, but Zack Snyder had to shut one down.
Although Ghost Rider, at least a version of him, did appear in Agents Of SHIELD, an actual film version hasn’t been seen. If it does happen, Zack Snyder won’t be directing a follow-up to the 2007 Nicolas Cage film.
While talking to Tyrone Magnus, Snyder confirmed that Ghost Rider is not a film he has in the pipeline. He was primarily there to promote Army of the Dead, but another undead character came up in Ghost Rider.
“Oh, really? I don’t know that. It’s kind of fun, I gotta be honest. It’s cool, you’re like, ‘Oh yeah, no, Ghost Rider is a done deal!’ No. But no, it’s not.”
We’ll have to see what Marvel does with the rights to Ghost Rider. If Disney can make money off the franchise, then they will likely start popping out those movies. The big question is what kind of treatment Ghost Rider will receive as many fans will cry for a hard R Rating..
Zack Snyder seems excited about the possibility of a Ghost Rider film, but he’s not a part of it. He probably couldn’t fit it into his busy schedule anyway.
