Despite the fact that watching first Ghost Rider film is akin to having a cattle prod blasted into your testicles – and despite the return of the completely bonkers Nic Cage –  reports coming out of the San Diego Comic-Con are giving comic fans hope that the sequel, Ghost Rider: The Spirit of Vengeance, won’t completely suck. Apparently, the flick will feature some truly insane and innovative camera work from the directors of Crank 2, Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor. Empire magazine has also released the first production photos from the film, and right off the bat, you can tell everything has a grittier feel. I especially like the burnt, crispy look that Ghost Rider’s bike (and his leather jacket) has, and the skull and flames look a million times better. Idris Elba is always awesome in anything he does, so it’s comforting to see him here. Hell, even Nic Cage’s hairpiece doesn’t look as ridiculous! Ghost Rider: The Spirit of Vengeance is due in theaters on February 17th.


About Jeff Carter

Jeff began his path towards Geek destiny at the age of four, at a drive-in screening of Star Wars. Since then, he's had a love affair with all things nerdy. In the mid to late 90's, Jeff was a staff writer for EchoStation.Com, interviewing Star Wars heavyweights like Timothy Zahn and Drew Struzan. He then went on to review films and write editorial pieces for several blogs in the mid 2000's, wrote and co-created a webcomic strip that ran from 2007-2010, and is currently co-founder of Dead Henchmen Productions, an independent film company based in New England.

  1. If you’ve seen CRANK 2, you will know this is a bad idea.
