Norman Reedus won’t deny he’s cast as Ghost Rider in the MCU. Actors do sign NDAs, after all. In other words, they can’t say a word.
For example, Andrew Garfield became the poster boy for this.
Garfield denied appearing in Spider-Man: No Way Home countless times.
In fact, even as evidence piled up Garfield refused to admit it.
Now it’s Norman Reedus’ turn.
Spoiler warning: He’s the new Ghost Rider.
Granted, it’s not official yet.
Oh please, let’s not be coy about this.
Reedus is Ghost Rider.
But Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige watches his every move.
Indeed, NDAs are a powerful weapon.
For example, Garfield lied repeatedly.
It became tiresome.
Norman Reedus Doesn’t Deny He’s Now The MCU’s Ghost Rider
On December 13, 2021, we scooped that Norman Reedus was in discussions for Ghost Rider.
Sources indicated it was for the Johnny Blaze version of Ghost Rider.
Fans regularly call Blaze the original Ghost Rider.
But that’s not exactly accurate.
There was a Western hero named Ghost Rider as well.
Marvel Comics owns both.
Nevertheless, Blaze was the first modern Ghost Rider.
Writers Roy Thomas and Gary Friedrich and artist Mike Ploog co-created Blaze in 1972.
He initially appeared in Marvel Spotlight No. 5.
Nicolas Cage starred as Blaze in 2007’s Ghost Rider and 2011’s Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance.
Critics bashed Cage’s Ghost Rider movies. Still, they had their moments.
By December 30, 2021, it began to look obvious that Reedus was Ghost Rider.
In addition, he’d debut in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
In the past, Reedus expressed affection for Ghost Rider.
I want to play Ghost Rider. Call somebody, make that happen. I want to do it.
Fans cast him as Ghost Rider for years.
Did Marvel Studios fulfill their dreams?
In a recent interview, Reedus dodged the question.
Fingers crossed. I don’t know. There’s been a lot of talk over the last couple years. I do not have an answer for you.
Somewhere, Garfield is giggling.
We’ve heard this before.
We didn’t fall for it then.
Furthermore, we won’t this time.
Norman Reedus will get his burning skull and flaming motorcycle.
