Report: Nicolas Cage to Join the MCU?
Written By Mikey Sutton • Editor-in-Chief • Owner
Jamie Foxx may not be the only major actor from Marvel's Sony past to cross over into the MCU.
According to a report from Giant Freakin Robot, Nicolas Cage might be roaring back as Ghost Rider for Marvel Studios. Apparently, Marvel Studios has "approached Nicolas Cage with an offer to return as Ghost Rider in the official Marvel Cinematic Universe."
In my previous update on Ghost Rider, also containing information from GFR, I explained that the MCU also wants to utilize Johnny Blaze, perhaps as a mentor figure to a younger and/or female version of the character. This would certainly be consistent with that.
However, it must be noted that the piece is sourcing the Twitter account of who or may not be the real insider Roger Wardell. But with all the multiverse weirdness happening, is it that out of the realm of possibility? It would certainly give him an opportunity to ride off into the sunset.
With his head on fire, of course.
