Justice League director Zack Snyder has denied a rumor that he’ll direct a Ghost Rider reboot for Marvel.
Zack Snyder is one of the most-discussed filmmakers in the comic book movie genre. With films such as 3oo, Watchmen, Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and his Director’s Cut of Justice League, he’s certainly made a name for himself as a comic book movie behemoth. Given his penchant for working on grittier superhero stories compared to the more upbeat, humorous tone Marvel Studios is famous for, some have wondered what his take on a Marvel superhero would look like.
Recently, rumors circulated that Zack Snyder was being eyed to direct a reboot of Ghost Rider for Marvel Studios. In an interview with Tyrone Magnus, the director swiftly debunked such rumors that he would be bringing the character to life in the Marvel Cinematic Universe:
“Oh, really? I don’t know that. It’s kind of fun, I gotta be honest. It’s cool, you’re like, ‘Oh yeah, no, Ghost Rider is a done deal!’ No. But no, it’s not.”
Nicolas Cage played Ghost Rider in the 2007 film of the same name followed by a sequel, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, in 2012. The Robbie Reyes iteration of the character was introduced in the MCU in the television series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., portrayed by actor Gabriel Luna.
