    I'm pretty sure they are going to actually set Nicholas Cage's skull on fire. Which is too bad, since it makes a sequel unlikely.

    It would certainly be a funny outtake.

    I have faith in Cage though. He's finally getting a superhero movie... and it's one of his favorite characters.

    Me too. I'm looking foward to it... now that it has settled in my mind. I was totally against it for the first 10 months or so that I chatted here. But, that was mainly because I was hoping to see Danny in the reigns. Now that it's Blaze for sure (with a hint of Ketch, so MSJ reasures me) I like that it's Nic.

    I think Nic will do a good job. He wasn't right for Superman, that was for sure, but I think he can play a hawg riding badass like Johnny Cage. He has the look to some degree (though not the hair, but oh well) and he's a lot better of an actor than people give him credit for (if you disagree, check out Leaving Las Vegas, Adaptation, or Matchstick Men).

    Nic Cage finally gets his comic book movie. I've always liked him as an actor, and this is definitely a better fit for him than Superman. Superman is all about the look of the actor playing him, and Nicholas Cage was never gonna look like Superman.

    There was pic online somewhere of a Figurine made for The Cage/Burton Superman.
    He looked like an astonaut. Awful. I wonder if that footage will ever be released...maybe as an extra on Singers Version?

    Doubtful... as interesting as it would be to see. I fear something like that would hurt his believabilaty in the GR role anyway.

    I'm really hoping this will eventually lead to a sequel with Danny Ketch and Cage reprising his role as Blaze. Not to put down Cage and the original Ghost Rider, Ketch is just the one I've read most and thus feel closest to.

    This is something they likely would never do unless Cage didn't want to come back for a sequel.

    Just saying. ;)

    It'd be more coincidental if he were playing Luke Cage tho (aside from the fact that Luke Cage is a big black man), seeing as how he changed his stage name (from Nicholas Coppola) to Nicholas Cage because Luke Cage was also one of his favorite characters

    If Luke wasn't a black man, Nic probably would have went after the role...

    ... and I'm sure if the movie ever gets developed, Nic will be rumoured to be playing him. He's rumored to play everyone else.

    This "Nick Cage's Skull" thread reminds me of a thought/concern I recently had while considering the movie. To me, it seems essential that the actor or stunt person wear an actual flickering light on their head during filming. Sound ridiculous? While the flaming head will be cgi, this necessitates that every surface around the Ghost Rider also be artificially lit during the post production of the movie. This works fine for a completely computer generated background, but in a physical setting it would add a lot of work to make it look convincing. Any thoughts?

    Marvel isnt trying very hard anymore so i doubt making it look convincing is their top priority. You can always strike a set to make it look like a flame is on or offscreen, People have been faking flames and alluding to them in movies for years.

    Yup...that link was posted in the Official GR Hype thread longggg time ago...
    that was when the GR film was being developed in the mid 90s. granted it does look cheesy by today's standards but that was the best they could do at the time.
