Norman Reedus: I Want to Play Ghost Rider

Project Casting

Norman Reedus wants to play Marvel’s Ghost Rider. 

During an interview with Uproxx, the 47 year old actor revealed that he would love to play Ghost Rider in a Marvel movie. “Hell yeah,” he said. “It would be a blast. Do I get a skull face that’s on fire and all that stuff? F**k yeah. I’m down.”

It’s been nearly four years since the last Ghost Rider movie, which featured Nicolas Cage playing the iconic role. The movie follows the story of stunt rider Johnny Blaze – a motorcycle stunt rider who makes a deal with the devil in order to save his father. But when the demon calls to collect his debt, Blaze becomes the Ghost Rider.

While the movies were met with mostly negative reviews, Ghost Rider did extremely well in the box office and managed to spawn a sequel. But, can Norman Reedus really play Ghost Rider? Reedus is known for playing Daryl Dixon in The Walking Dead, a man that has very few words and a character that has very few lines. But his love of motorcycles has led to Reedus starring in his new series with AMC, Ride with Norman Reedus. 

And that’s probably why fans are interested in seeing him as Ghost Rider.

It’s important to note that there are rumors of a possible Netflix Ghost Rider TV series coming soon, following in the foot steps of Daredevil and Jessica Jones. Whether or not that happens remains to be seen…
