Following confirmation this morning that The Amazing Spider-Man will have a major presence at the 2011 San Diego Comic-Con, comes word, straight from the Twitter feed of directing pair Neveldine/Taylor, that the “evolved” Ghost Rider from the upcoming Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance will be debuting his new look there as well.
“[T]his movie is f–ing badass,” they write, “[C]an’t wait to reveal the evolved GR…… comicon seems like a year away.”
Though Nicolas Cage will be reprising his role as Johnny Blaze, Neveldine/Taylor promise that the film will be a significant departure from the 2007 version.
“[N]ot sure where the last one came from,” they write, “but this GR comes from nightmares.”
The film, also starring Ciaran Hinds, Violante Placido, Idris Elba and Johnny Whitworth, is set for a February 17, 2012 release and will be released in both 3D and 2D.
