Although the response to Ghost Rider wasn’t the most positive in Marvel’s history, the producers decided to go ahead and make a reboot/follow-up anyway, hiring the guys behind Crank to give Johnny Blaze a shot of adrenaline.
A teaser poster is now live for the next outing of the hellblazing vigilante, Ghost Rider: Spirit Of Vengeance.
The film sees Nicolas Cage return to the saddle as Johnny Blaze, a stunt motorcyclist who traded his soul with the devil for supernatural powers.
This time, as Blaze hides out in Eastern Europe, he finds his lucky self having to stop the devil from taking on human form, no doubt having to turn into a flaming leather-clad skeleton in the process.
In addition to Nic Cage, Idris Elba, Ciaran Hinds and everyone’s favourite Highlander, Christopher Lambert, will also feature in Ghost Rider 2 .
The poster shows very little besides a bony hand grasping Ghost Rider’s trademark flaming chain, but this little nod should be enough to get fans of the character excited.
See the new teaser poster below:
Ghost Rider: Spirit Of Vengeance is directed by Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor and will be released in UK cinemas on 22 February 2012.
