Ghost Rider 2 Plot Details Ghost Rider 2 Plot Details

Nicolas Cage will ride again as Johnny Blaze in Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance – and now specific details about the next adventure of the supernatural-powered motorcyclist have been revealed.

Production begins this fall on the 3D followup to director Mark Steven Johnson’s 2007 Ghost Rider movie.  Cage made comments last year about wanting Ghost Rider 2 to be “… less of a Western and more of an international story” – and if the early script review of the film is legit, the actor’s wishes will be realized.

The Ghost Rider sequel is reportedly set several years after the first film and finds Johnny Blaze in self-imposed exile from the world.  Blaze has become a tormented soul, convinced that his powers are a curse – which makes him completely different from every other superhero ever conceived (*cough, cough*).

Former stuntman Blaze is then approached by Moreau, a member of the monastic order of Michael, the warrior angel.  Moreau seeks a protector for a mother and son duo (Nadva and Dannv, respectively) who are being pursued by a figure named Roarke – a fellow with a detailed knowledge of the Ghost Rider and his “… different identities over the centuries.”

David S. Goyer penned the second Ghost Rider flick, which will feature Crank directors Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor at the helm.  The involvement of those talents behind the camera will surely make Ghost Rider 2 a different affair from its predecessor – but will it be good is the real question.

The mythology of the Ghost Rider figure could be interesting to explore, but if not done properly it could come off as unintentionally hokey and uninspired.  Comic book fans are not exactly quivering with anticipation for Ghost Rider 2, so the filmmakers behind it will need to come up with more than just fancy 3D visuals and FX if they hope to convince the fanboys to give the sequel a shot.

Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance will be filming on location in Romania over the next few months.

  1. im actually looking forward to it

    • Me too…

  2. Sounding good.

  3. What website am I on?… I’m scared… Where are all the nay-sayers with their “This movie is going to suck” or “Epic fail” or whatever else they use. Could we be dawning on a new era?…

    • Potentially, yes.

      A new era of cinema where people actually consider a film on its own rather than based on 2 years’ worth of hype generated by a closing scene in the first film (ala Iron Man, where I felt #2 was on par with #1, but that the film did not hold up against fans because they sought something bordering on perfection).

    • I just see them putting together a fantastic team with Cage and the Crank directors. I liked the first movie minus a few nitpicky things. I love Cage as Johnny and I see good things for this series.

  4. One ticket for the 9 o’clock.

  5. Having the Crank writers involved doesn’t inspire me but I am one of the few who actually enjoyed the first movie, even with all of its flaws. Hoping this one will blow us away.

    • his chopper was just badass

    • The only thing I didn’t really like about Crank was the action sequences were unbelievable. The cinematography will fit better on some one who is Super Human rather than Joe Blow with a bad heart.

  6. I wish there was a link to the review so I could find a little more about it. As it stands, I’m not exactly sure what could be “spoilers”. The bit about the kid being named Dan got my attention, but it may not be “Dan Ketch” (I sure hope it would- this could be why they chose the subtitle)
    Also, if a bad guy has “knowledge” of past Riders, I wonder if Slade (Sam Elliot) will cameo. I’m still hoping for a cameo from Peter Fonda myself . Aside from Cage, we don’t know who else in the cast. There have been almost no announcements. All we know Eva Mendez is out.

    I tried hunting for it (the review) all I found at the source was a general premise in Italian. It didn’t tell me much that what was already reported. One thing I DO KNOW however….

    They reviewed a draft from last May 2010. It may or may not have changed.

      There seemingly isn’t anything especially spoilerish in this script review, that’s true.

      Still, I figured I’d put a warning for those that wanted to avoid knowing much of anything about the movie in advance. Why such readers would click on an article about the Ghost Rider 2 plot details, I don’t know, but still… ;-)

  7. Cool another Ghostrider film looking forward to this when it releases I hope the 1st teaser trailer will feature some killer action scenes ^_^

  8. Ghostrider was one of the worst movies with a budget I have ever seen. It gives comic book movies a bad name.I am a huge comic book fan and love comic book movies but this ranks as one of the worst ever.What was sad is the story was borderline interesting but the execution and acting was terrible.The movie made money(large opening weekend huge drop-off) thats why we are seeing a sequel but unless the trailer is literally and not figuratively mindblowing and manages to destroy the part of my brain that holds the memories of watching the first film I will not watch its sequel.

    • im sure they are in tears over your rant and non-supporting attitude sir lol

    • @Zturk

      Marry me. First Ghost Rider was absolutely awful. Made Daredevil look like the Dark Knight. Made Punisher War Zone look like Schindler’s List. This idea would be a lot better if it involved none of the people from the original, Cage’s ridiculous Blaze included.

      • No no. While not good, Ghost Rider was still better than Daredevil… then again, it’s not hard to be.

  9. Why don’t they just give the rights to Marvel, and then convince other studios to give up there rights to other Marvel movies, but keep all casting same and have minor storyline changes because they will all be in the same universe .. Then we will all be happy!!!!!

  10. Finds this entire tangle of dialogue humorous and will gladly read on…

  11. Cage + Crank = They’ve earned my money already.

  12. Can’t stand Cage, the first movie was barely worth the time it took to watch it and the only redeeming part was Sam Elliot. Pass.

    • I just wish Cage was not involved. I agree with the comments above. Really bad and barely watchable….the female lead was the only saving grace along with Mr. Elliot who just chewed up Cage in every frame they were in together.

  13. First movie wasn’t great, but I enjoyed it. This sounds good my only worry is the new directors because the Crank films were awful.

    • Not to mention Gamer…

  14. CAN’T WAIT. I LOVED THE FIRST ONE… PROBABLY BECAUSE I’M A HUGE NIC CAGE FAN…

  15. IN a world of bad CGI skulls, but good CGI fire, there is a lone man fighting the forces of evil with powers given to him by the devil. Wait what!?! He sold his soul to the devil, but the devil is helpless to stop him? What? If I was the devil I’d take him to Judge Judy and get his @$$ locked up in the eternal lake of fire!

  16. OMG … the last part was awesome!.Waiting eagerly for this part to hit the theaters .

  17. Next time you’re studying info consciously switch on additional of one’s senses.
    What we do in this step is convince our subconscious mind
    that we have a lot of self confidence, then, we just allow our subconscious mind to
    do the job for us and affect our conscious mind to do the same.
    I often equate the process of self-hypnosis as something that is as
    similar to driving a car.
