Following Ryan Gosling’s revelation that he would like to play Ghost Rider in the MCU, a striking new concept design shows him taking over the role of the Spirit of Vengeance from Nicolas Cage.

Johnny Blaze, Marvel’s original Ghost Rider, originally appeared on the big screen in 2007’s Ghost Rider, with Nicolas Cage in the title role. Cage appeared in two films as the Spirit of Vengeance, before the character was rebooted for Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., which introduced the Robbie Reyes version of the character to the MCU.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. offered a brief look at the MCU’s Johnny Blaze, though only in his Ghost Rider form. This leaves the door open for a new actor to portray Blaze in a future Marvel project. Ryan Gosling recently revealed Ghost Rider is the Marvel hero he would most like to play.

Following Ryan Gosling naming Ghost Rider his top choice of Marvel role, a new concept design from artist “” on Instagram has revealed how Gosling might look as Nic Cage’s replacement for the part.

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige seems to be on board with the idea. When asked about Ryan Gosling’s Ghost Rider comments at San Diego Comic-Con, Feige said “Ryan’s amazing. I’d love to find a place for him in the MCU.” It sounds like there could be hope for the star of The Gray Man to enter the Marvel Cinematic Universe as the motorcycle-riding Spirit of Vengeance.

Ryan Gosling’s Ghost Rider would certainly be in good mystical company in the MCU. Mahershala Ali is gearing up to star in Marvel’s Blade reboot, Kathryn Hahn’s Agatha: Coven of Chaos is set to launch on Disney Plus at the end of next year, and Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange continues to oversee all things mystical and otherworldly.

Ryan Gosling has already been mixing with MCU royalty for his latest film, The Gray Man. He appears alongside Marvel Studios’ Captain America star Chris Evans and the film is directed by Avengers veterans Joe and Anthony Russo. Here’s the official synopsis:

“THE GRAY MAN is CIA operative Court Gentry (Ryan Gosling), aka, Sierra Six. Plucked from a federal penitentiary and recruited by his handler, Donald Fitzroy (Billy Bob Thornton), Gentry was once a highly-skilled, Agency-sanctioned merchant of death. But now the tables have turned and Six is the target, hunted across the globe by Lloyd Hansen (Chris Evans), a former cohort at the CIA, who will stop at nothing to take him out. Agent Dani Miranda (Ana de Armas) has his back. He’ll need it.”

Directed by Anthony Russo and Joe Russo, the film stars Ryan Gosling, Chris Evans, Ana de Armas, Regé-Jean Page, Billy Bob Thornton, Jessica Henwick, Dhanush, Wagner Moura and Alfre Woodard.
