Norman Reedus, known for playing fan-favorite Daryl Dixon on The Walking Dead, again says he wants to play Ghost Rider for Marvel.
Years ago saw the actor respond “f’ yeah” when questioned about Ghost Rider, and recently saw Norman Reedus offer up he still wants to play the Spirit of Vengeance when it was pointed out he could be reunited with fellow The Walking Dead actor Jon Bernthal who is rumored to return as Punisher in the MCU.
“That would be great. So, I don’t know, call somebody, make that happen. I want to do it,” said Reedus to CB.com, adding, “I want a fire skull. I want my face to turn into a fire skull and whip a chain around. That would be great.”
Norman Reedus also happens to be a big motorcycle enthusiast, as he also starred in AMC’s Ride With Me, and added, “I got 12 [motorcycles]. I’d just pick one. I’ll do it, yeah.”
The most recent version of Ghost Rider was played by Gabriel Luna on Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD which teased the Johnny Blaze version; Luna previously said he also wants Norman Reedus as the Johnny Blaze Ghost Rider, and according to Giant Freakin Robot, there are plans in place to bring the Gabriel Luna Ghost Rider back to the MCU.
However, other rumors have offered Kevin Feige is going to go with the female Ghost Rider, with rumors offering Bella Thorne was being eyed for the role.
Another rumor also offers Ghost Rider is planned for Doctor Strange 2, the Dan Ketch version.
Recently also saw Zack Snyder address a fan question regarding directing a potential Ghost Rider movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe where Snyder joked and teased it’s happening but then said it’s not.
With Marvel rebooting Blade it seems the MCU is building its supernatural and horror side of things, so maybe the MCU’s Ghost Rider is right around the corner.
