Who is Ghost Rider?
Before we dive into the movies, let’s talk about who Ghost Rider is. The character first appeared in Marvel Comics in 1972 and has had several iterations over the years.
The most well-known version is Johnny Blaze, a stunt motorcyclist who makes a deal with the devil to save his father’s life. As a result, he becomes bonded with a demon called Zarathos and gains supernatural powers, including the ability to transform into a skeletal figure with his motorcycle engulfed in flames.
Ghost Rider (2007)
The first time we saw Ghost Rider on the big screen was in 2007’s “Ghost Rider” movie starring Nicolas Cage as Johnny Blaze. Despite receiving mixed reviews from critics and fans alike, it was a commercial success. In this movie, Blaze becomes Ghost Rider to defeat his evil counterpart Blackheart and his father Mephistopheles.
