With the Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe underway, there are many rumors that circulate about possible new Marvel Studios movies bringing back characters whose rights have been recovered by the studio.
One of the loudest rumors that has been sounding these days is the project of a film reboot of Ghost Rider, a character that had two films starring Nicolas Cage in 2007 and 2011 respectively. When the rights to the character reverted to Marvel from Sony, a different version of Ghost rider, Robbie Reyes, appeared in several episodes of Agents of SHIELD, but the character has not been seen since.
Although it was commented that this ghost rider reboot would be carried out by Zack snyder, the filmmaker has denied these rumors in a recent interview (via Comic book) and ensures that he is not preparing a cinematic reboot of the character from the Marvel comics.
“Oh really? I don’t know. It’s kind of funny, I have to be honest. It’s great, you say, ‘Oh yeah no, Ghost Rider is a done deal!’ No. But no, it isn’t, “a surprised Snyder commented when asked about the rumors of a new ghost rider movie directed by him.
Zack Snyder is well known in the world of movies based on comics, since he has directed several adaptations. His first foray into the genre was in 2006 with 300, which was a huge success that grossed more than 450 million dollars worldwide.
This was followed by other titles such as Watchmen, The Man of Steel and Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, featuring among the most recent Zack Snyder’s Justice League, his directorial cut of the 2017 film that he had to leave halfway due to a family tragedy and which he was finally able to pull off to HBO Max following a deal with Warner.
