Vengeance rises!

It seems the Spirit of Vengeance is coming to the Marvel Cinematic Universe! A new rumor suggests a Ghost Rider project is in early development, with Marvel Studios wanting an A-List actor for the role.

Ghost Rider has always been a deceptively popular character for Marvel Studios. There’s a reason they have two movies and a season arc on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.! With the MCU’s new focus on the supernatural, it only makes sense for the character to get their own movie. According to scooper MyTimeToShineHello, the studio wants an A-List actor for the project to star alongside Sacha Baren Cohen, who’s rumored to be playing Mephisto in Ironheart.

This rumor aligns with prior reports that Ryan Gosling had met with Marvel Studios for a potential role in the MCU, having previously expressed interest in playing Ghost Rider all the way back in 2022. Though Gosling may not be the only Spirit of Vengeance in the MCU, as it’s also been reported the studio wants Nicolas Cage to return as the character for Avengers: Secret Wars.

The Future of the Avengers Franchise

Avengers 5 is the first movie in a two-part finale to Marvel’s Multiverse Saga. It will be followed by Avengers: Secret Wars, rounding out Marvel Studios’ Phase 6.

Destin Daniel Cretton recently made the decision to step down from his role as the director of the upcoming Avengers 5. However, Destin Daniel Cretton’s departure is not an exit from the Marvel family but rather a realignment of his directorial commitments as he’s focused on Wonder Woman and Shang-Chi 2.

Secret Wars is a crossover event that will bring together characters from all across the Marvel multiverse, so Iron Man’s experience and leadership will be invaluable to the Avengers. Michael Waldron is set to write the upcoming Marvel Studios film Avengers: Secret Wars, but a director has yet to be announced.
