Guess that answers the question, “How’d it get burned?” Considering that we’ve seen him as a face-swapping crime boss, a weathered car thief and a scraggly-haired witchunter, it shouldn’t be that surprising to see Nic Cage in the Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance trailer as a flame-skulled biker, even if he is letting loose a flamethrowers’ worth of incendiary pee. And frankly, it’s not.
Due out February 17, 2012, the Ghost Rider sequel revisits undead superhero Johnny Blaze, portrayed once again by the man who never saw a paycheck he didn’t like. It’s good to see Cage bringing it in a new movie role, considering that most recent Nicolas Cage news has revolved around both the actor’s arrest for domestic abuse and that of his son Weston Cage. Hey, we loved ever second of Wicker Man; let’s not pretend we won’t all love this too.
