The news has once again caught fire in the rumored market that Triple 9 star Norman Reedus may be seen as a Ghost Rider in the MCU.
Ever since the Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase 4 kicked off with the Disney+ show WandaVision, fans have been getting one surprise after another. Whether it’s taking on Vincent D’Onofrio’s Kingpin on Disney Plus’s recently released show Hawkeye or Charlie Cox’s Matt Murdock in ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home, the list is long, fans have loved it. This is the multiverse, where anything is possible.
Now, the question arises that which Marvel Comics box character will be introduced next? In such a situation, the effort to implement the Ghost Rider character of the comic book has intensified. In such a situation, the name of The Walking Dead star Norman Reedus has surfaced once again, who had expressed his desire to play the character of Ghost Rider in early 2017.
Reedus said in an interview about the role that.”The Ghost Rider has been in talks for years, and yes, ask him to include me in it. I want to play Ghost Rider. However, I want a fire skull. I want my face to turn into a skull of fire and a chain surrounds it. That would be great “.
Not that the character hasn’t been worked on since Nicolas Cage’s 2007 and 2011 Ghost Rider. The character with the fiery skull is played by Gabriel Luna in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. A spinoff TV show was then also put into works on Hulu, but was shelved due to changing plans within Marvel. Gabriel Luna also said that Norman Luna should play this character.
So, Norman Reedus Really Portraying Ghost Rider In MCU?
So, according to Cinematic Hub on Twitter, Marvel recently picked an actor to portray Ghost Rider. But at present the name of the actor is not stamped. Notably, the tweet appears in Norman Reedus’s Twitter Likes. As a result, since the news broke, Norman has liked several tweets from fans, all they want is for the actor to portray the character. Of course it’s definitely possible that Norman is hinting at his official casting, but let’s just hope he’s not messing with us. Who knows what will happen next, when the time comes, everything will become clear.
In this context, The Walking Dead showrunner Angela Kang also caught the attention of fans with her tweet, where she wrote that “Reedus would be rad as Ghost Rider”.
If that happens, it won’t be the first time Norman Reedus will be joining Marvel, having previously been cast as the Scub in Blade Blade 2 starring Wesley Snipes. It is evident that Norman Reedus rose to prominence as Daryl Dixon in the zombie apocalypse TV series The Walking Dead. Due to which the actor has also won the title of Favorite TV Hero in People’s Choice Award.
