There are rumours that Nicolas Cage will reprise his role as Ghost Rider in a future Marvel Cinematic Universe production. Trusted scooper MyTimeToShineHello commented on a GIF on X that showed Cage’s Johnny Blaze morphing into Ghost Rider, writing, “Now that’s a nice fucking shot. “Glad Cage is returning,” she said with a wink. A few while later, CanWeGetSomeToast—another reliable scooper—posted a message that hinted that “The Spirits of Vengeance and their Hellfire will be burning the damned sooner than you think.” This rumour was first circulated less than a week ago by MyTimeToShineHello, which also claimed that Marvel Studios was working on a new Ghost Rider solo project that would restart after the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes were resolved.

While there have been other superheroes in Marvel Comics who have gone by the moniker “Ghost Rider,” Johnny Blaze, a stunt motorcyclist who turned into the Spirit of Vengeance after giving his soul to Mephisto in order to rescue his father, is the most well-known. The character of Johnny Blaze, created by writer Gary Friedrich, artist Mike Ploog, and Roy Thomas, then-editor-in-chief of Marvel Comics, made his debut in 1972’s Marvel Spotlight. In 2007, Nicolas Cage starred in the Ghost Rider movie from Sony Pictures. Despite receiving poor reviews from reviewers, the movie managed to gross a modest amount of money and inspired the 2012 sequel, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance. Although not portrayed by Cage, the Johnny Blaze Ghost Rider previously had a quiet appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe television series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., which also starred the Robbie Reyes Ghost Rider, who made his comic book debut in 2014. Throughout several episodes of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s fourth season, Gabriel Luna played Reyes. There were plans for Luna to return as the Skeleton Driver in a Ghost Rider spinoff series on Hulu after his debut on S.H.I.E.L.D. However, owing to a “creative impasse,” the project was ultimately shelved, but Luna says she is “always open” to the possibility of playing Ghost Rider once more.

The MCU’s next arc, The Multiverse arc, which spans Phases 4, 5, and 6, began after The Infinity Saga was finished. While only a small number of Phase 4 projects were released, those that did, such as Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (2022) and Spider-Man: No Way Home (2021), were praised for bringing back actors who had previously played versions of well-known Marvel characters in movies and television. In No Way Home, Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield both reprised their Spider-Man roles from their respective film series, while Patrick Stewart and Anson Mount returned as Professor X and Black Bolt, respectively, after having previously played the roles in the ABC series Inhumans and the 20th Century Fox X-Men franchise. Stewart’s Professor X is also rumoured to return in Deadpool 3, the first Merc with a Mouth movie to be set in the MCU, along with a number of other beloved characters from the first three X-Men movies, including Halle Berry’s Storm, James Marsden’s Cyclops, and Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine. It’s likely that Cage’s Ghost Rider will appear in the upcoming Avengers: Secret Wars because the movie is said to have various iterations of its namesake characters. However, this is just speculation at this point.
