I don't care that David Goyer wrote The Dark Knight, Ghost Rider 2 starring Nicolas Cage should not happen. I was not a big fan of the first Ghost Rider movie, but there is a group of people out there that did like it. These are the people that would be excited to know David Goyer may end up being attached to the film as writer and director. He has not officially signed on yet, but Columbia Pictures is already planning to base the sequel on a script that Goyer wrote several years ago.
I think I would be more open to this film if Nicolas Cage wasn't in it. Am I being to hard on him? It's what killed the first movie for me. The sequel will is going to be produced by Avi Arad, Michael De Luca and Steven Paul, with Gary Foster executive producer.
There are a ton of other Marvel films that are in the works right now, they we knew would proabably happen. Fantastic Four is getting a reboot, which Green Lantern scribe Michael Green is writing. Then ther are all the X-Men movies Wolverine sequel, Deadpool spinoff, The New Mutants, Magneto, and First Class. FOX is also currently developing a Dardevil reboot, and a Silver Surfer Spinoff, which have both been kept quiet. Sony hired James Vanderbilt to write a fifth and Sixth Spider-Man film, and Universal Pictures is working on getting Sub-Mariner off the ground. Them Marvel and Paramount are getting Thor, Captain America, and The Avengers up and running.
There are a ton of Marvel comic book films in production or going into production, my question is when are we going to get to see Dr. Strange! That one may end up being done through Disney.
As for David Goyer possibly directing Ghost Rider 2, what do you think?
