What to know

Critics Consensus

With a weak script, uneven CG work, and a Nic Cage performance so predictably loony it's no longer amusing, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance aims to be trashy fun but ends up as plain trash. Read critic reviews

Now hiding out in Eastern Europe, Johnny Blaze (Nicolas Cage) is still struggling with the curse of the Ghost Rider -- the devil's bounty hunter. Johnny meets a priest named Moreau (Idris Elba), who asks Johnny to find a boy named Danny (Fergus Riordan) and bring him back. But there's a catch -- Satan (Ciarán Hinds) is looking for the boy too, and has a personal stake in the matter. But if Johnny can find Danny first and save the boy's soul, there's a chance Johnny can save his own soul as well.

Audience reviews for ghost rider: spirit of vengeance.

Like the first one it is extremely dumb but that bothers me less this time. That is probably because the movie is trimmed of any superfluous narrative. Also the digital cinematography is genuinely impressive.

ghost rider 2 zwiastun

So hilariously bad, it's definitely worth watching. What's weird though is that from watching this film, it really felt like it was trying to do Mad Max Fury Road 3 years before it came out...it just did a really, really bad job of it.

Even though this film was intentionally suppose to be mindlessly entertaining, it is misguided in its attempt. There is some good action and some over-the-top Nicolas Cage but there is piss poor character development, storytelling and handling of villain(s). You don't have to dumb down a film completely for it to be entertaining and you piss off comic book fans as a result because of this film existing. Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance might entertain you if you're high or drunk but if you want good entertainment go watch The Avengers instead.

One star seems generous... What a waste.

New ghost rider - shock avengers villain gets fiery redesign as the new spirit of vengeance.

A former Avengers villain and Infinity Stone wielder has been announced as Marvel's new Ghost Rider, taking over from the original.

  • Marvel introduces the new Ghost Rider, Parker Robbins (aka the Hood), who was a major Avengers villain in the '00s.
  • The Hood, armed with a demonic cloak and dark mystical abilities, becomes the new Ghost Rider and plans to take over the criminal underworld.
  • Ghost Rider: Final Vengeance #1 is coming March 13 from Marvel Comics.

Marvel has revealed the identity of its new Ghost Rider , who will soon be taking over from the original Spirit of Vengeance, Johnny Blaze. The holder is a major Avengers villain, though someone who has been forgotten in recent years, despite being one of the only humans to ever come close to assembling the full Infinity Gauntlet .

As revealed by Marvel , the new Ghost Rider is Parker Robbins, aka the Hood . Coming this March, Ghost Rider: Final Vengeance will see the Spirit of Vengeance choose a new host, upgrading the former Avengers foe with incredibly supernatural powers. Marvel had teased that a villain would be taking over the Ghost Rider role, but no-one had guessed the Hood was the chosen host. The reveal comes as Marvel solicits the second issue of the series.

The Hood's darkest moment saw him resurrect the Punisher's family to torture him emotionally.

With powers that have been estimated as enough to burn the Hulk to a crisp , the Ghost Rider numbers among Marvel's most powerful heroes, but thankfully the power has usually been held by those who only want to use it to do good. Now, that has changed. Speaking about the choice of the Hood, Percy says:

Some villains you know all too well. Doctor Doom. Thanos. Mephisto. But I find it especially fun to bring the lesser known baddies out of the shadows and give them a shot at a starring role. That's what I did with Omega Red during X LIVES OF WOLVERINE/X DEATHS OF WOLVERINE - and that's what I'm doing now with Ghost Rider. The Hood wants a taste of the big-time. And he's made a deal with the devil to help him on his way. This is what happens when the Spirit of Vengeance is stripped from Johnny Blaze and grafted on to a character who has no moral compass. An epic crime saga - flavored with horror - awaits readers in GHOST RIDER: FINAL VENGEANCE.

Ghost Rider Took His Ultimate Form by Possessing DC's Flash

The hood is marvel's new ghost rider, the avengers' demonic villain returns from obscurity.

First appearing in 2002's Hood (Brian K. Vaughan and Kyle Hotz), Parker Robbins was a small-time criminal who stumbled upon a mystical cloak which allowed him to access various magical abilities, including walking on air and turning invisible as long as he could hold his breath. The Hood experienced a meteoric rise through Marvel's underworld, and was recruited by Norman Osborn during the 'Dark Reign' era to organize Marvel's superpowered villains into a single gang, frequently attacking the Avengers.

The Hood isn't all about villainy, and becoming Ghost Rider could offer a road to redemption.

Parker was later promoted to be part of the Cabal - a group of villains who secretly ran world events. Parker's darkest moment saw him resurrect the Punisher's family to torture him emotionally, at the same time as bringing several supervillains back to life with his mystic powers. The Hood was heavily involved in the Siege event, and later used his connections to gather almost all the Infinity Stones before being beaten by the Avengers and Illuminati.

The Hood's abilities were eventually revealed to be a result of Doctor Strange's nemesis Dormammu working through him to influence the mortal world. This occasionally allowed Parker to adopt a demonic form and shoot bullets charged with eldritch fire, fighting heroes including Wolverine and Daredevil.

The Hood Was a Major Villain in the '00s

Many stories suggest that given the chance, the hood could be redeemed.

Since then, the Hood hasn't been able to maintain his status as a major player, and his most notable recent appearance was fighting Ghost Rider in 2023's Ghost Rider Annual #1 (Percy and Kim.) It makes perfect sense that he'd feel the need to take revenge on those who deposed him, and - as a former thrall of Dormammu - it won't be the first time he's played the game of trying to use a power mystic being to satisfy his own petty grudges.

However, the Hood isn't all about villainy . While he was later corrupted by Dormammu, Parker Robbins originally at least tried to do good where he could - as seen in the Beyond! miniseries (Dwayne McDuffie and Scott Kolins) where he showed his human side and helped Earth's heroes escape a deadly alien world. The Spirit of Vengeance may be terrifying, but it exists to punish evil, meaning that while Hood may start out with plans to abuse his new power level, it's possible that becoming Ghost Rider could offer this former Avengers foe a road to redemption. Fans will find out if that's the case when Ghost Rider: Final Vengeance introduces Marvel's new Spirit of Vengeance.

Ghost Rider: Final Vengeance #1 is coming March 13 from Marvel Comics, followed by issue 2 on April 18.

The new Ghost Rider has been revealed, and it's a well-known Marvel villain

Marvel has been teasing that a known villain will soon take over as a new Spirit of Vengeance in the upcoming Ghost Rider: Final Vengeance limited series, and now the publisher has revealed the villain who will take up the mantle: the Hood.

For readers of writer Benjamin Percy's recent Ghost Rider volume, this won't be a total surprise, as the Hood appeared as an antagonist 2023's Ghost Rider Annual #1. Now, he's going to become the new Spirit of Vengeance as Johnny Blaze is cast into hell.

Along with the announcement, Marvel has revealed Juan Ferreyra's cover of Ghost Rider: Final Vengeance #2 as well as series artist Danny Kim's design for the Hood as the Spirit of Vengeance.

"Armed with a demonic cloak and dark mystical abilities, Parker Robbins’ undying lust for more power and fortune has made one of the Marvel Universe’s dangerous threats," reads Marvel's official announcement. "Now with the Spirit of Vengeance claiming what’s left of his soul, there’s no stopping his bloody takeover of the criminal underworld. By the time Johnny Blaze is able to claw his way back from the abyss to reclaim the Spirit of Vengeance, it’ll be far too late!"

Parker Robbins, AKA The Hood, was created in 2002's The Hood #1 by writer Brian K. Vaughan and artists Kyle Hotz and Eric Powell. A low level criminal in New York City, Robbins rises through the ranks to become a supervillain when he gains possession of a demonic cloak and boots that allow him to turn invisible and walk on air. The Hood will be the villain of Marvel Studios' upcoming Ironheart streaming series, played by Anthony Ramos.

"Some villains you know all too well. Doctor Doom. Thanos. Mephisto. But I find it especially fun to bring the lesser known baddies out of the shadows and give them a shot at a starring role. That's what I did with Omega Red during X Lives of Wolverine/X  Deaths of Wolverine - and that's what I'm doing now with Ghost Rider," Percy states in the announcement.

"The Hood wants a taste of the big time. And he's made a deal with the devil to help him on his way. This is what happens when the Spirit of Vengeance is stripped from Johnny Blaze and grafted on to a character who has no moral compass. An epic crime saga - flavored with horror - awaits readers in Ghost Rider: Final Vengeance."

Ghost Rider: Final Vengeance #1 goes on sale March 13, followed by #2 on April 18.

Ghost Rider is one of the best supernatural superheroes of all time.

Norman Reedus on playing a rebooted Ghost Rider for Marvel: 'Fingers crossed'

  • Norman Reedus has his "fingers crossed" about joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
  • While discussing " TWD ," Insider asked Reedus about a report that he's in talks to play Ghost Rider.
  • Reedus said he hopes to hear something.

Insider Today

Is Norman Reedus joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe to play Ghost Rider?

"Fingers crossed," Reedus told Insider Wednesday when asked if there was anything he could say about whether or not he has been cast as the Marvel character. 

The "TWD" fan favorite has advice for fans who wish to see him join the MCU, quickly adding by phone, "Light a candle."

Late December, website Giant Freakin' Robot reported that Reedus signed on to play the antihero in the MCU. Reedus subsequently tweeted a link to an Instagram post on the report containing fan art of him as the character. 

A post shared by Marvel Movies (@marvelmovies)

At the time, Reedus' rep told Entertainment Weekly there was " no truth to this at this time. "

Regardless, the move prompted fans to back the actor in the role with a flurry of (pretty convincing) fan art. 

"TWD" showrunner Angela Kang and chief content officer Scott M. Gimple quickly added their support on Twitter, adding fuel to the rumors that Reedus' casting may be forthcoming. 

—Scott M. Gimple (@ScottMGimple) December 27, 2021

Wednesday, when Insider told Reedus we hope to hear something soon about "Ghost Rider," Reedus said, "Me too. Me too."

In 2021, Reedus voiced his interest in playing the role to ComicBook.com , telling the site how he envisioned his character: "I want a fire skull. I want my face to turn into a fire skull and whip a chain around."

Nicolas Cage previously played an iteration of the character named Johnny Blaze in two films, 2007's "Ghost Rider" and its sequel "Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance."

A stunt motorcycle rider who trades his soul to the devil in exchange for his father's life, Blaze/Ghost Rider feels like a role Reedus was born to play. 

One could argue that Reedus' current AMC reality series, "Ride With Norman Reedus," in which he travels to different destinations by motorcycle with pals, has been an elaborate audition tape in case Marvel ever wanted to reboot the character. "TWD" fans know Reedus' character, Daryl Dixon, is also a motorcycle enthusiast.

If Reedus does join the MCU, he'd join a lengthy list of present and past "TWD" cast who have appeared in Marvel roles, including Cailey Fleming ("Loki"), Danai Gurira ("Black Panther"), Lauren Ridloff ("Eternals"), and Ross Marquand ("Avengers Endgame," "What If..."). 

But, for now, Reedus is preoccupied with another universe. 

When we caught up with Reedus on Wednesday, he had the final season of "TWD" on his mind.

The actor, who has starred on the AMC series since its first season, said it's starting to sink in that they're getting to the end of the apocalyptic drama. The show is expected to wrap filming this spring.

"It's kind of bittersweet, I have to tell you," Reedus told Insider. "Despite the accomplishments — to be on air this long and be this popular this long and have such a great show — at the same time, I'll probably be on the bathroom floor." 

In 2020, the network announced the "TWD" would come to a close with its 11th season , news that shocked much of the cast , including Reedus, who previously told us he was the first of the cast to receive the news.

Even when "TWD" is over, Reedus is set to lead the show's untitled "Carol and Daryl" spinoff alongside longtime costar Melissa McBride. Of course, there's also the question of whether or not Reedus will also appear in one, or any, of the future "TWD" movies as well. 

"TWD" returns to AMC on February 20. Episodes will stream a week early on AMC+ starting on February 13. You can follow along with our coverage here .
