We all knew that the Ghost Rider is going to make an appearance in the MCU at some point and who better to ask than Nicholas Cage himself about this dreadful character.
In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Nicolas Cage was asked if he would return as the fan favourite character in the MCU.
Cage said, “These are hot topics, and I get it, because these are the types of things that become like wildfire on the internet.”
He added, “I've always admired the realm of the comic book and I've always thought stories were really colorful and entertaining and, frankly, kind of wholesome in a really positive way.”
Cage also said, “I don't know what the umbrage is with people that want to knock them. I certainly think there's great value in that they're bringing happiness to people.”
If we look back, Nicholas Cage also spoke to JoBlo. Here he didn’t completely dodge the question but answered it in a subtle way.
Cage said, “I think that when the Ghost Rider movies were happening Marvel hadn't gotten the entire process worked out yet and now they have and they know exactly where to go and what to do and it's working beautifully for them.”
He added, “Y'know, Ghost Rider was a movie that always should've been an R-rated movie. David Goyer had a brilliant script, which I wanted to do with David and for whatever reason they just didn't let us make the movie.”
He also said, “But that movie is a still a movie that should be made, not with me obviously, but it should be an R-rated movie-heck, Deadpool was R-rated and that did great.”
Finally, Nicholas Cage told Ghost Rider was designed to be a scary superhero with an R-rating and edge and they just didn't have it worked out back then.
Is he interested in coming back? Of course he is but it all comes down to Marvel and the boss Kevin Feige.
