It’s no longer a secret that Marvel Studios has big plans for the Ghost Rider character. According to new claims made today, the head of the studio, Kevin Feige, has definitely begun working on a new Ghost Rider project to include the iconic superhero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).
Johnny Blaze, also known as Marvel comics, is known as the Ghost Rider character in the films published in 2007 and 2011 by the famous American actor Nicolas Cage. The films, which earned a total of 360 million dollars in the global box office, were developed under the roof of Sony, but the character’s rights returned to where they belonged, Marvel Studios, years later.
As the audience knows, Mexican-American actor Gabriel Luna appeared in the third season of the Marvel series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. While Luna’s performance was praised by Marvel fans, it turned out that Hulu was working for a Ghost Rider-based series, but later this project was said to have been surprisingly shelved.

Now, it seems that Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige wants to bring Ghost Rider to the MCU. But it seems that the character will not be played by Luna this time. It is not known who will play the role at the moment, as well as whether the project is for the big screen or Disney + platform.
However, Feige is said to want to include the original version of the character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). At this point, it doesn’t hurt to speculate a bit. It may be Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, which Ghost Rider will re-appear on the screen after many years. This of course has not been officially confirmed, but taking into account the fiction in the comics, it’s unlikely that the duo will be in the same movie.

Ghost Rider, known for his chain wrapped in hell flame, was unable to thread a single Doctor Strange in the comics. In addition, Doctor Strange 2 is expected to be a horror-themed movie. Scott Derrickson, who directed the first film, was withdrawn from the project in January because of his differences with Marvel Studios. Sam Raimi, the name behind the Original Spider-Man trilogy, was sitting on the sofa that was recently freed from Derrickson.
