Nic Cage has the moves for Ghost Rider 2

Ghost Rider 2 will see star Nicholas Cage playing both sides of Marvel's supernatural superhero, replacing the CGI character from the first film.

In a video interview with Superhero Hype Cage admits he got acting inspiration for the flame-headed biker from an unusual source.

"One of the things this movie gave me the chance to do which I didn't get to do in the first one is play Ghost Rider, which is interesting to me because it's all about how do you move if you're from a different dimension?" he told Superhero Hype.

"[Directors] Brian Taylor and Mark Neveldine and I we all got in a room and explored different movements and body language, referenced some animals - and cobra kept coming back to me."

Ghost Rider: Spirit Of Vengeance is due for release on 22 February 2012 in the UK.
