As you know there is a sequel to Ghost Rider that's currently in the works called Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance. Nicholas Cage is set to return as Johnny Blaze, and Crank directors Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor are developing the film project which was written by David S. Goyer.
I can't say that I'm too excited about this movie, I didn't like the first film at all, and I suspect that this sequel won't be any better.
For those of you like myself that really don't care about having the plot of the film spoiled for you, here is a spoiler filling story summary of what happens in the film with the settings, plot points and even some new characters. This description comes from a script review by Comicus.
After the success of the first film is not exciting among fans, Sony / Columbia Pictures will try again with what in effect is basically a sequel, though at the same time is the way to revive the character and the franchise some lightening issues that had covered the first film, especially as regards the presence of Roxanne, which does not appear in the script.
Johnny Blaze found years after the events of the first film, self-exiled from the world. In this way, hopefully, not having contact with people, able to control the spirit of Vengeance. Blaze is approached by Moreau, a monaco quite unusual part of the monastic order of Michael, the warrior angel. The Monaco but needs the special talents of former stuntman to trace a woman named Nadya and her son Danny, who must be protected at all costs, as there is on his trail Roarke, who is none other than an old knowledge of our hero (you certainly understand who they are) and is interested in the guy for a particular reason.
The script strongly underlines the tormented soul of Johnny Blaze since its first appearance. For he is a man who just wants to hide and who sees in his power a curse, more muted than in films directed by Mark Steven Johnson. The script focuses on the background in this way also "historic" that covers Ghost Rider, explaining in more detail to the viewer and the protagonist that the spirit of Vengeance is appearing more than once, and with different identities over the centuries. An interesting part of this working thanks to the characterization, creating a strong bond between the characters of Nadya, Danny and Johnny, also not forgetting Moreau, well shaded from start to finish. Only link with the previous film is a little flashback on the Origin of Ghost Rider, the covenant between Blaze and Mephistopheles.
A defect in particular, however, is to underline the main plot of "Mephisto" bad, or to Roarke, of course already seen in myriad other films in one way or another, and perhaps a little degrading, who expected more from this point of view. Ultimately the work is pretty good but could do better, also seen the one from which you started earlier. For the most passionate fans, there's a final twist, but much nerd. Not reveal more.
So do you think the sequel will be better than the first film? or Just as bad?
