    I know what you mean, for us, comic book readers, this movie would have 3 or even more hours, a very nice lenght.
    But I'm just thinking about a balance, so the average moviegoer can feel comfortable too and this movie besides being great (as I hope), make some money and get nice sequels. ;)

    I know what you mean. They have to please all movie goes, not just us in this forum... though they better make us happy damnit.

    I just hope it's not as short as FF and not as long as Hulk. Anything in the middle of those two would make me happy.

    An LOTR's sized epic would be sweet. I think a 3 part movie dealing with the Rise of the Midnight Sons would be fantastic. All that Lilith stuff with her children. Man, what a story... much like LOTR's actually, in way of gathering a group of warriors to fight a battle.

    Anyway, I'll be happy with any length for this first flick.

    And we're real happy you asked it.

    Was that GR traduction in Brazil? Here in Italy it was untranslated, Ghost rider.
    Do you have the spanish "Doctor Muerte"(Doctor Doom) too?

    Yes, in Brasil we call GR: Motoqueiro Fantasma.
    And we talk portuguese, not spanish.
    All the Latin America talk spanish, except us.
    Just forthe record:
    -MIDNIGHT SONS:os filhos da meia-noite;
    -BLACKHEART:coração negro;
    -SPIRIT OF VENGEANCE:espírito da vingança;
    -CARETAKER:coveiro;
    -SCARECROW:espantalho;
    -SKINNER:escalpo.

    And Dr.Doom is DOUTOR DESTINO.
    Take care.

    Well depending if they actually tell most of the origin, I think it should be at least 2 hours long.

    I just hope they don't stretch out the origin too much, and get right to the action.:ghost:

    That certainly is a tough thing to do, telling the origin of a character. There's a fine line of taking too much time to do so and too little. From what I can tell, this is not going to be an origin movie in total because the curse/deal is being told with Johnny and the gang being young (Matt Long) and then we flash forward to the present. So, it looks like we'll have like 20/30 minutes of origin and then the story can happen.

    The question is, how long will they spend developing the origin of the baddies? It seems to me that not much is needed. I mean, everyone knows who the devil is and can easy come to terms with him having a son. Besides that, the demons need nothing because we're all so used to demons now as they are ever present.

    2 hours, at least, of Ghost Rider kickin' ass sounds great to me.

    Awesome. It certainly is interesting to see these characters and things in a different language.

    See, personally, I'd be a little dissapointed with a 90 minute movie. I've waited so long for this flick that that would just be a let down.

    I have faith we will. I think Sony will let MSJ keep the length to his liking. They have for Raimi.

    Very true. It doesn't seem that studio is in the business of rushed movies. Plus, I'm sure they've seen what Mark has done with 30 extra minutes of DareDevil.

    Yeah, that would suffice for me... though I'd much prefer it it were closer to 2 hours than 1:45. The more the merrier... but not Peter Jackson long. That's too much.

    yea,but im a new GR fan,read the plot sounded cool and im trying to find more stuff out about the charecter,and being a new fan I think the best amount of time is 145-2hrs because if its longer it could be boring(not for the fans but for the average movie goer).

    1:45-2 Hrs is good enough for Ghost Rider. You dont' want it too long. It's not an epic story either so keep it tight and solid from start to finish and MSJ will have a winner.

    The main reason why I want it over 2 hours is because I know that the first 20 minutes of the movie is going to be Matt Long and young blaze. That means it'll be at least 30 to 40 minutes into the movie before we even see Ghost Rider... maybe more. I really don't want the final climatic battles to happen in a blink of the eye.

    It needs to be at two hours because this is going to be the final version. No extended or director's cut on dvd. I am hoping for the first half about Blaze and then the last half with mostly Ghost Rider. Kind of how Batman Begins was handled.

    I agree. Batman Begins was handled really well. A solid first half with Bruce and a solid second half with Batman. I dearly hope we don't feel short-changed by Ghost Rider's appearances.:ghost:
