GHOST RIDER: SOV: Nicholas Cage On Playing Johnny Blaze; Still Says It's Definitely NOT A Sequel

While speaking to Total Film the incomparable actor explains why Ghost Rider is a much different type of hero to the likes of Superman etc, and maintains that this movie is not a sequel...

Right from the beginning everyone involved with Ghost Rider: Spirit Of Vengeance seemed adamant to distance it from the first movie by claiming that it was not a sequel. It featured the same character, played by the same actor, and took place after the events of the last movie..but not a sequel. Gotacha. While speaking to Total Film Nicholas Cage continues to perpetuate this..



"I don’t see this as a sequel at all. I see this as Ghost Rider: Spirit Of Vengeance. The other movie was Ghost Rider. This movie is Ghost Rider: Spirit Of Vengeance.”


Well, I'm sold. I mean who can argue with that logic? Cage also explains how Ghost Rider differs from other superheroes and why he is attracted to roles like this one..

“Johnny Blaze is in a much different place in this movie, It’s a much edgier, almost cynical interpretation compared to the first Ghost Rider. Because in that movie, Johnny was trying to keep everything at bay, to keep things from erupting.”

“I couldn’t get my head around how I was supposed to perceive something like that to be a hero, so I was automatically attracted to that complexity. It’s easy to love Superman, it’s easy to love Captain America, but it’s a challenge to love the Ghost Rider. As I got older that carried on into my dramatic work – I’m always looking for flawed characters who have a pathos and a kind of tragedy to them.”


I think the movie looks like it could be decent, although I am worried about those awful reviews. But if your concerns stem from how bad the last movie was, don't worry, it's not a sequel remember! The Ghost Rider sequel opens February 17th.
