As Keanu Reeves fans await his imminent return as Neo in Matrix Resurrections, fourth installment of the franchise, others campaign for the Canadian actor to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe. According to the recent statements of the interested party, the latter is also absolutely not against the fact of joining the great family of Marvel at the cinema. This gave an idea to a fan, who has just shared, on YouTube, a trailer featuring him in a film project Ghost Rider.
New character adaptation in sight?
In 2013, Marvel managed to recover the rights to the character of Ghost Rider, which had until then been held by Sony. Created in 1972 by Roy Thomas and Gary Friedrich, Ghost Rider is an anti-hero called Johnny Blaze. His father was a stuntman, and after falling ill, Johnny decided to make a pact with Mephisto, in an attempt to cure him.
After selling his soul to the devil, however, her adoptive father died during of a perilous waterfall (a pact that has definitely not played out to Johnny’s advantage). Mephisto then breathed in Zarathos in the body of the young man. From then on, Johnny shares his body with a demon, and turns at night in Ghost Rider, riding a motorcycle with wheels of fire and armed with a mystical chain to fight against urban violence, and banish corrupt souls from the world of the living.
The character had the right to two film adaptations with Nicolas Cage in the lead role and series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D will have offered us another vision of the character in season 4, in the guise of Robbie Reyes, played by Gabriel Luna.
