Ghost Rider 2, Daredevil: More Marvel Movies Coming Soon
by Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero on
Studios are scrambling to make movies to retain their rights on the characters.
The good news about Ghost Rider 2 is David Goyer is in "early talks" to come up with a story and supervise the writers. It appears that Nic Cage will return as the lead character.
Variety has reported that other studios are also planning on making films with the characters they hold the rights to. There is mention of a "new version" of Daredevil (Ben Affleck has stated he has no desire to return to the role before). We've heard that Fox is also rebooting Fantastic Four and a solo Silver Surfer movie. We could possibly see Universal finally get things started on a Submariner movie.
With the rush to get these movies made before the rights languish, will that create pressure to just get them done? It makes sense that if you're going to spend the time and money making a movie, you'd want to make the best one possible. No one wants a movie that turns out to be a piece of garbage. It's interesting to think what would a Ghost Rider movie would be like if Disney/Marvel made the movie. Would it be something completely different or along the same lines. The same goes with the X-Men franchise and Fantastic Four. My hope is that those in charge of the studios retaining the character rights will want to make the best movie possible in order to generate kick ass sequels. We've had plenty of bad comic book movies. With movies like Iron Man and The Dark Knight, we've seen that they can be done correctly.
Are you looking forward to another Ghost Rider or Daredevil movie?
