On Friday, February 17, Nicolas Cage gets a do-over with Ghost Rider Spirit of Vengeance, his second opportunity to play Marvel Comics’ motorcyle-riding daredevil Johnny Blaze and his devilish alter-ego, the Ghost Rider.
Taking place a number of years after the Mark Steven Johnson Ghost Rider, Johnny Blaze is now riding across Eastern Europe, trying to deal with his demonic possession, when he’s dragged into a rescue mission for a young boy named Danny whose mother Nadja is trying to protect him from the Devil (in the guise of Ciaran Hinds) and his mercenary henchman Carrigan. Helping them out is the bike-riding monk Moreau, played by Idris Elba in his third comic book role following The Losers and Heimdall in last year’s Thor.
ComingSoon.net/SuperHeroHype attended the New York junket for the movie last week and had a chance to speak with both Cage and Elba about their roles in the movie. You can watch the interviews at SuperHeroHype!
