    lol...obviously they havent been keeping up to date on the project.
    that idea was in Goyer's 2001 script where his woman Roxanne was in a coma...she doesnt die though.
    looks like they confused the 2001 script w/ the Crash Simpson death from the comics.
    just another example of someone not knowing what they hell they are talking about :D
    expect more hilarious goofs ups by those wacky media reporters right up to the release of the movie.

    and i hate the fact he calls GR a "superhero"...yuck

    They should avoid misinforming like that especially with a plot point as major as that. i read something like that too before saying john constantine is a cop. damn.

    As BIGGUN said, this'll keep happening until the movie released. It happens.

    Most times the confusions and misinformations are quite hillarious. I'm expecting a few good ones to come about in the near future. Should be real fun once the trailer is released.

    Just to compare, here is Comingsoon's plot summary:

    It's too bad the easterecho people didnt' read that first eh?

    There is one think in the CS summary that confuses me though (and this is probably a connector of the 2 summaries) and that's the part about Roxanne. What exactly does it mean by "sadly parts from the pure-hearted Roxanne Simpson, the love of his life."

    Perhaps when he sells his soul, he feels great regret and leaves Roxanne until years pass. Who knows. The Comingsoon premise is a nice one though, like the ideas in it.

    I'm pretty sure that's an official summary provided by the movie people. I think ComingSoon/Superherohype have FAR superior connections in the biz than easterecho.com.

    You see, I have a sneaky suspicion that Roxanne is going to play a much bigger role in this flick than we realize. Perhaps he will indeed have to become Ghost Rider to save the life of his Girlfriend. This of course comes 20 years after the actual deal with the devil and such.

    No movie is without romantic interests. I'm just wondering how big a part of the story is it going to be. Are we going to see what happened to DareDevil (theatrical cut, and I'm only using this movie as an example) with the majority of the story be about Matt and Elektra and not about DareDevil? I can't see that happen but, I'm positive the love story will be prominant. How much so? I have no idea.

    I don't know if it was MSJ that said so or if it was a former report before some more details were released, but wasn't it mentioned that in the final battle with Blackheart Ghost Rider would be saving the life of Roxanne?

    does he have super powers? yes

    does he save/protect innocent people? yes

    sounds like a superhero to me, just not a traditional one

    Supernatural-Hero would be better.

    Well...I guess it really depends on which GR you are referring to.
    the 90s GR could be considered a "superhero" but the 70s GR was definitely not....especially from around issues 36 to its end. Blaze was the true hero of the series since he had to deal w/ being bonded to a evil demon 24hrs a day.
    GR was forced to help people....and despised Blaze even more for it

    You speak very true words, as always, BG. I wouldn't really consider the 2nd GR a superhero either. Superhero's go out of their way for the safety of all life, good and bad. Ghost Rider beats the **** out of bad people and doesnt' mind destroying a few buildings and such while he's at it.
