First Badass Art in San Diego for 'Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance'!

He Rides Again

He Rides Again. Don't forget that another big comic book movie rolling out the red carpet at Comic-Con is Sony's Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, the return of Nicolas Cage as Marvel's Ghost Rider, this time left in the care of the directors of Crank/Crank: High Voltage - Mark Neveldine & Brian Taylor. Ever since we heard that they got the greenlight to make their own balls-to-the-wall Ghost Rider movie, I had a feeling it would turn out badass, and if the early marketing artwork for it is any indication, this might be one of the surprise hits of Comic-Con. Two posters were found on display in San Diego that you must see.

The photos come from the SuperHeroHype gallery and show some of Sony's outdoor Comic-Con marketing. I just think those two skull posters look badass, exactly like the crazy awesome Ghost Rider imagery you'd expect from a movie like this. I want more! Update: It took four months, but we finally have the high res of the two graphic art skull posters seen below. To view them, and other Ghost Rider posters - click here.

As you may notice, there's also a little Spider-Man in there off to the side, as the building also has a few Spidey ads but they're not that exciting. Same logo shot we've seen of Marc Webb's new Spider-Man before.

As for Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, well, they've got some big plans for Comic-Con so stay tuned for the Sony panel on Friday. Brian Taylor told Collider back in March that "we're gonna do a huge splash at the Comic-Con. That's when we really want people to see what the new, evolved Ghost Rider looks like as well as the first peeks at the villains." That villain is said to be Blackout, played by Johnny Whitworth. Taylor also says that this new movie is "100% different from the first movie, everything, except for Nic. We want the character to look different, feel different, sound different. The backstory of the character’s different, the origin of the story is expanded upon…" Can't wait to see the footage on Friday! Sony/Columbia has Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance scheduled to land in theaters February 17th, 2012 early next year.

Why Nicolas Cage why?

JT on Jul 20, 2011


Because The Sorcerer's Apprentice was actually a good movie. So they're hoping to bank on that, and that everyone forgot Season of the Witch. Which I haven't seen yet. Yet I had to mention it to make a point. Point being I like to be a smart ass. As to why I keep doing it. It is because I can't help myself. My shelf is dusty. Dusting will clean it nicely. Nice weather we are having...

I have nothing against Nick Cage, but I don't see him as Ghost Rider at all. I guess if his head is flaming most of time and just driving around it should be okay.

JT on Jul 21, 2011


I honetly have nothing against nicolas cage (just the movie)and dont see why people blame many actors for the line... Its the script that has to suck, and no matter what, you cant make a cheesy line sound bad ass

Said on Jul 20, 2011


Same here. I don't mind Nicholas Cage. What I don't understand is why Hollywood keeps letting those two morons Monsieur Neveldine and Senior Taylor keep writing and directing movies. 

Chris Amaya on Jul 20, 2011


Because you may not enjoy them but they do have a loyal fan base. 

Mark Smith on Jul 20, 2011


The poster're bad ass but the first movie was drop dead suck!!! I don't think they have the way to revive it.

TTumMM on Jul 20, 2011


Yeah I'd be excited about it, if it weren't for the guy playing the rider...

Nbachm on Jul 20, 2011


So glad to see that Mark Steven Johnson is not involved in this. Having typed that, I sure hope Neveldine/Taylor really nail the true spirit of the comic book with an awesome, gritty script and proper directing. I sure hope, "GR: Spirit of Vengeance", does not turn out like the incoherent, MTV-style quick-edited, dizzying, "Crank" flicks! ....Yes, Nic Cage kicks ass.....Given the right script like, "Leaving Las Vegas", "Adaptation", or "Face/Off"-- he's ace!

Mark Neveldine & Brian Taylor does some insane shit, love their no holds barred mad movies so this is gonna be a fun and crazy ride 

Loser on Jul 20, 2011


Love the cage, but ghost rider was horrible. Ill wait till red box. Punisher, hulks and ghost riders films? So many other marvel characters that are waiting to made into films ie black panther, moon knight, iron fist etc....

does nick cage still owe money ? wtf men

kwame adansi on Jul 20, 2011


I think this is going to be amazing.  The Crank movies were so over the top outrageous and fun.  I'll think they'll bring that to this.  I hope.  And I love Nic Cage.

Brian Ricci Movie Review on Jul 20, 2011


Does this mean a "Rated R" Ghost Rider?

Big Boss on Jul 20, 2011


I was really hoping to see that... but sadly I checked with my reps at Sony and they confirmed this will definitely be PG-13. :/

Alex Billington on Jul 20, 2011


Shoot. lol

Skeet on Jul 20, 2011


It means they're going to cast someone that Cage can leave the goofiness to, (the comedic sidekick, as much as that sounds more lame than the first movie)so he can be this 'troubled' dark character.

Nick Sears on Jul 20, 2011


drop Nicolas Cage!!...! drop him please!!! then i`ll reconsider watching this.

Leo on Jul 20, 2011



Fdg on Jul 20, 2011

Crapola on Jul 20, 2011


nick's gotta eat!

Desispeed on Jul 20, 2011


Bout as "Badass" as a lady bug

Anonymous on Jul 20, 2011


I am excited to see which unconvincing wig nick cage goes for this time.

Lebowski on Jul 20, 2011


that artwork is really lame they should have got somebody like this artist to do the art

Controlfreakgraphics on Jul 20, 2011


Only when he's trying to be a tough guy. Con Air was badass, except for him, he was just awful. Anyway, when he's got the right role, he can be great. Such as Raising Arizona and Bringing Out the Dead. He's the shit in those movies. I just wish he'd stop trying to be an action star.

grimjob on Jul 20, 2011


Please Dear jellybeans in a martini glass. I know that is not the worst part of the movie, but it's still one of the few things that make me shake my head and cry wtf?!? And hopefully when he does the first transformation this time he won't come off with the crazed psycho laugh and facial expressions.

Is anyone excited for this? At all??

Anonymous on Jul 21, 2011


The teaser posters looks badass, i just love them. These guys are excited about the sequel as much as i am. The first movie sucked but i truly hope things are much different this time. It's cool they brought Cage back as i hate movies with superheroes where they change the protagonist in the second movie.

Ron Torque on Jul 22, 2011


wow i hope this is good and please god let it be rated r if anything release an unrated version on dvd, but te fact that the trailers says marvel knights (marvel themed for more mature audiences) makes me think it may be.  Please do justice for one of my favorite characters, ghost rider needs a dark, girtty and violent story or its just not ghost rider.
