    Just now i've realized how the branding medallion symbol recalls the cow branding, this thing could definitively fit well in a western BG:D
    I remember also a way to represent the chain elongation ring by ring, at the two end of it(or one), with a *tchink!* sound, as if it is forged in real time in locus by an invisible hammer/hand:p, maybe with some sparks/little flame bursts, starting elongating slow, and if longer chain is required, the autoforging could turn so fast to be a flaming blur...

    You've thought about the chain a lot, I see. Quite wonderful descriptions of how it exists you have there. Makes me really excited to actually hear and see it on screen. I really hope it's there. It better be there. MSJ has said "there was going to be a lot of powers used but never confirmed exactly what.

    Well this is a no brainer
    GR shooting hellfire all over the place is gonna be what makes this movie kick all ass!!
    I also hope we have a pompous and arrogant Ghost Rider like the Blaze GR. A demon who acts like a demon.

    Pompos and arrogant is good, yes. I hope he's scary and intimidating more though. That's what a demon is to me.

    I agree. Pompos, arrogant, scary, and intimidating like a sob. All that will make a great GR. :ghost:

    I look forward to the burning of the souls of the guilty. The shear anguish and pain inflicted on the bad guys is gonna be hardcore on screen

    I wonder how much time they'll have to inflict pain on random people? I mean, the bulk of the story is going to be taken up with the actual story of Johnny Blaze. There might not be time to have as much pain infliction and anguish as some of us would like.

    Btw, Welcome to the hype!

    Wait, I just started getting into Ghost Rider not too long ago; what exactly are all of his powers? Are they just the ones listed on the poll?

    I hope they don't go overboard with any flame powers he might have. Don't want him becoming Pyro. I'd like to see him use the chain and his fists more than anything. Maybe they should leave the penance stare for the big bad guy at the end. Leave him a gibbering, sobbing wreck while GR just coolly strides away.:cool:

    Oh yeah, save the penance stare. I agree about the hellfire blasts as well. The less the better for my liking.

    As for his powers, it varies, depending on which Ghost Rider we're speaking of. Generally speaking, he has super being strength, an extreme unwillingness to die, a neverending chain which can meld into flying surikens or a staff, hellfire blasts, penence stare... and some other cool stuff...

    I've seen the story boards of the final fight and can say that GHost Rider uses the Chain, the Penance Stare as well as a Wall of Fire sort of move. He also uses a Shotgun which flames up when it's in his hands.

    It would be cool if Blaze picked up a shotgun and hellfire came out, as for GR, I do not want to see him using a shotgun EVER! I'd be more than happy just to see him use his fists and chain as weapons and use the penance stare as a finisher. If at any point Blaze loses control of GR to Zarathos then introduce the flame thowing and turn him loose.

    Agreed. But there may in fact be a problem. The recent Arad interview talked about it Being a western movie, and on MarveMovies GR site it has a pic of a action figure with a gun :confused: due out sometime next year. When I first saw it I thought perhaps every figure of that particular line had to have some sort of gun or something, just like I got a toy that is GR in a car. However now it seems that may be a foreshadowing of whats to come if Wise is as wise as he proclaims.
    So this is what we may have?? GR riding a hellfire powered mechanical horse with hellfire coming out of its eyes, with GR wielding a shotgun :down . We spent all our time pondering what attributes the movie GR is gonna have of Blazes GR and which attributes of the ketch GR, we generally failed to consider Carter Slade western GR. When we we talkin previously about GR having a westrn feel, I thought we were talkin like out in the desert, loner type stuff, not this. If all GR does is use his chain and a damn shotgun, I, for one, am gonna be pissed :mad:

    I agree RG. Now I could deal with GR coming across a gun, picking it up and firing it once or twice, I wouldn't like it but I could deal with it. But yeah, if its all chain and shotgun with maybe a penance stare or two thrown in with absolutely NO hellfire blasts.....that would indeed suckaroo.
    Maybe before the movie comes out they will change GRs outfit to all white with a cowboy hat and spurs :rolleyes:
    You see, this is the situation we find ourselves in. They never should have made the change from zarathos to noblek. There was no good reason for it. If they wanted to make them that different they should have just named the ketch gr something like the riding flame or something and gone about their business, not marginalize an awesome character. Now we have what is really two completely different ghost riders apart from the obvious appearance similarities. That puts 2 different generations of readers against each other. You got people like Flamehead who is tickled pink whenever any info about the movie comes out that is more ketch than blaze and not to be disparaging towards Flamehead because I'm the same way just on the other side. of course there are people who find the best in both and have no major problems, but most people fall generally on one side or the other.
    Then throw in the western gr, I'm having more and more doubts about this the closer we get to show time.

    Well..it could have been worse, if they added in also the 2099 GR :D a chainsaw armed cowboy in a chopper :D
    Seriously, i don't think there's this generations conflict about the way GR dress.
    He IS the old GR, just a little more actual and appealing to younger readers. GRII DID reach a larger audience also because of is look, then why don't use some of it?
    I love also the classical GR blue outfit, but i also think that in modern era it looks a little ridiculous, especially the scart... But i would love to see the shirt weared by JB under the jumpsuit, or even under GR jacket, as a homage.It doesn't take nothing to put it in the movie, but still i'm not a fan of some clothes, i am a fan of a character.
    Also, GRII is NOT entirely Noble Kale, the first issues were imo great just because we didn't know who was him. And i don't think any GR fan (i mean real fans, hardcore readers either of the first or of the second) is going to criticize the movie after all the false starts in the last... how much? 10 years?
    The average GR fan has faith, has patience, and is incredibly longlasting:)

    LOL.........don't give 'em any ideas.

    I hear you, thats a good point, but man would it be terribly disappointing to see GR himself with a shotgun.

    The question was posed long ago whether or not this would be more of a western than anything. When I first heard reports of there being a saddle maker hired, I pictured the movie being a western but instead of them riding horses, they'd have motorcycles.

    Yes, I get very excited when I see Dan's legacy involved. He's my favorite. Of course I get excited. I get excited about Blaze too though... And Vengeance as well. I love the whole legacy, even Carter Slade... albeit just for the namesake. I wouldn't care if they took a little bit of every instance, including the western side. I'm just happy they're taking it from the comics.

    I think the Pennance Stare is one of the more original powers in comics, and am really hoping it's represented efficiently on the big screen...
