Fans are still waiting for Ghost Rider to make his big screen debut within the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While there have been past interpretations of the character, both in film and on television, they haven’t taken place directly in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as we know it. Thus, fans have been trying to urge Marvel to finally put a new film into production, and one of the biggest choices they have for the titular Ghost Rider role is none other than Norman Reedus.
The actor has always had the kind of scruffy, cool demeanor that fans associate with Johnny Blaze and his alter-ego Ghost Rider. After seeing Norman Reedus put years’ worth of effort into projects like The Walking Dead, it’s easy to see how he’d be a great fit for the role. In fact, aside from fan demand to see Norman Reedus become the character, there have been several rumors floating around with his name as well. While these have yet to be confirmed, it seems that Norman Reedus doesn’t mind adding a little fuel to the fire.
While he hasn’t said anything in particular, Norman Reedus has liked a few tweets that suggested the actor should play Ghost Rider. While it’s likely a case of the actor being supportive of his fans and their wishes to see him as Ghost Rider, it does seem more than a little exciting to pretend he might be teasing something more. After all, with so many exciting revelations coming in the Marvel Cinematic Universe – it seems just as well that Norman Reedus could be announced as Ghost Rider at any second. Of course, only time will tell if that opportunity comes.
For now, Norman Reedus is confirmed to be returning as one particular fan-favorite character. It was previously announced that he’ll be coming back for The Boondock Saints 3. With how successful the first two films have been over the years, it’ll be interesting to see what he’ll have to offer the role these days. And who knows? It could be what further paves the way for his potential debut as Ghost Rider.
Nicolas Cage previously played the character for the big screen before the rights reverted back to Marvel. Gabriel Luna did portray the Robbie Reyes version of the character in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., although that series remains somewhat distant from the greater Marvel Cinematic Universe.
