The Marvel Cinematic Universe finds its Ghost Rider in this fiery artwork that imagines John Wick star Keanu Reeves as Johnny Blaze.
A new concept design pictures John Wick star Keanu Reeves as the Spirit of Vengeance, with the actor transforming into the MCU’s Ghost Rider. While fans haven’t seen a cinematic Ghost Rider since the 2011 sequel starring Nicholas Cage, there’s been some speculation online that Johnny Blaze will finally make an appearance in a Marvel Studios movie soon. The character briefly appeared as part of Robbie Reyes’ backstory during an Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. episode on ABC.
While it isn’t clear where these rumors have come from, the impressive new artwork shows off what the MCU’s Ghost Rider could look like if John Wick star Keanu Reeves was given the role. In the fan art, Keanu Reeves sits on the fiery motorbike while transforming into the supernatural hero, with intimidating spikes growing out of his shoulders. Take a look at the artwork of Keanu Reeves as the MCU’s Ghost Rider below.

Meanwhile, Lionsgate is moving forward with a fourth entry in the John Wick film series, but fans re-watch the third installment on all home media formats. Here is the official synopsis for Lionsgate’s John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum:
John Wick (Keanu Reeves) is on the run for two reasons… he’s being hunted for a global $14 million dollar open contract on his life, and for breaking a central rule: taking a life on Continental Hotel grounds. The victim was a member of the High Table who ordered the open contract. John should have already been executed, except the Continental’s manager, Winston, has given him a one-hour grace period before he’s “Excommunicado” – membership revoked, banned from all services and cut off from other members. John uses the service industry to stay alive as he fights and kills his way out of New York City.
Directed by Chad Stahelski from a script written by Derek Kolstad, John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum stars Keanu Reeves, Halle Berry, Ian McShane, Ruby Rose, Common, Lance Reddick, Laurence Fishburne, Hiroyuki Sanada, Jason Mantzoukas, Anjelica Huston, and Boban Marjanovic.
John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum is now available on Digital HD, 4K Ultra HD, Blu-Ray, and DVD.
