Ghost Rider Synopsis
Based on the Marvel character, stunt motorcyclist Johnny Blaze gives up his soul to become a hellblazing vigilante, to fight against power hungry Blackheart, the son of the devil himself.
Nic Cage finally gets to play a superhero. Thank god it isn't Superman. Anyone else remember that? No? Good for you. I can still remember my panic over that Superman movie casting. Yes, folks, at one point Nic Cage was signed up to play Superman. I know, it makes no sense.
But the guy is nearly as obsessed with superheroes as he is with Elvis. He's been attached to every superhero movie project ever in development, and now he's finally landed in one. At least it's one that nobody cares if he screws up. It's also potentially a good fit for him, unlike Superman or any of the others he tried to cast his way into.
Is the concept all that interesting? No, not really. It kind of has that Spawn vibe, and that's not a good thing. Still, the presence of Nic makes it worth giving a chance, if only to see the guy finally living his dream. It's not quiet Clark Kent, but it'll have to do Nic.
