Today we share a Ghost Rider reboot rumor that comes from the folks over at That Hashtag Show. The outlet reports that Ghost Rider, in this case Johnny Blaze is coming to the MCU. They were also told that the character would be a complete reboot by their sources. Ergo, not any previous versions of the character we have seen. Lastly they say that Ghost Rider could be used as Hulk was, i.e. someone who shows up in other films but does not get his own vehicle.
When it comes to the source, I’m not sure. That Hashtag Show never did rumors or had sources 6- Months ago, now suddenly they do. This could simply be new leadership, a new direction and using the assets they have gathered over the years? However I can’t tell you whether this is the case or we have another WGTC on our hands. The only way you find out is by seeing what rumors pan out in the end and keeping a hit rate.
For now, not enough time has passed for me to assess any of this outlets recent rumors, so your guess is as good as mine. However, I also have to say that this is not the first time we have heard rumor that Ghost Rider will be rebooted in MCU. The last incumbent of the title was in Agents of SHIELD, recently classified as non-canon to the MCU. That means Marvel Studios can do whatever they want with Johnny Blaze and not have to worry about what happened with Robbie Reyes.
The outlet also claims to have seen concept art for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. They say that in this concept art Ghost Rider can be seen. However, one wonders if this is going back to the Multiverse angle? Remember we had heard that Nic Cage could actually show up as an alternative version of Ghost Rider from another Universe. This was also the same movie that we have heard about such cameos a Tom Cruise showing up briefly as an alternate Tony Stark and more. So show knows for sure right now?
What do you think of these Ghost Rider reboot rumors? Who would you want to see play Ghost Rider for Marvel Studios? Any thoughts below as always.
