Ghost Rider was far from my favourite comic book characters. Frankly I find the character pretty dumb. But I was willing to give the film a chance.
But alas it wasn’t much of a film, and it may have dampened any enthusiasm for a sequel, but its coming and writer David Goyer shares a little on the planned direction.
David Goyer who offered details on what’s up with the sequel’s the 9-year-old script, besides of course, watering it down to receive a PG-13 rating. Says Goyer, “It’s not exactly a reboot… I hate to say it’s more realistic, because he’s got a flaming skull for a head, but it’s a bit more stripped down and darker. It’s definitely changing tone. What Casino Royale was to the Bond movies, hopefully this will be to Ghost Rider.”
I am encouraged that they are taking it in a different direction, even if its not a reboot.
But I honestly don’t know what to think about that descriptive. I can’t wrap my head around how “realistic” this could be. Batman? Yeah. Bond? Ok, I can see that too. But that they want to go “realistic” with Ghost Rider is puzzling.
I guess it can only get better right?
