Captain Craig, is there a main discussion and pics thread for The Avengers somewhere? I'm asking you because you usually set them up.

I've been thinking it was time for a consolidated thread coming out of Comic-Con. The one thread to talk about Joss is just about Joss but we do need one just for all inclusive Avengers news now it does seem. I'll set one up now.

Re: Ghost Rider 2: Spirit of Vengeance Discussion, Pics etc Till Relea

Romania has been chosen as the site to shoot GR2:Spirit of Vengance.
Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vegeance, the sequel of Ghost Rider (2007), the action movie inspired from the Marvel comics will be shot starting this Fall in Romania...
It's also going to shoot in 3-D, for what that may be worth. I'm starting to think Hollywood has shot its 3-D load or will have by the time this is in production.

Nic Cage says:
"This story picks up eight years after the first film. You don't have to have seen the first film. It doesn't contradict anything that happened in the first film, but we're pretending that our audience hasn't seen the first film. It's as if you took that same character where things ended in the first film and then picked it up eight years later - he's just in a much darker, existential place."

I liked Ghost Rider. I read comics as a kid, not Ghost Rider itself often but the story was good. I'm surprised there is a sequel too given how mediocre the reviews and return on the first movie was. I'll definitely see this one if it's at least as good as the first. Better would be preferable but I'm not going to nitpick the original either.

3D sounds (and is) contrived but it's also the current fad in Hollywood. It'll either come into its own and really be used appropriately or just be another of the many abandoned fads we've seen before.

It did well enough for a sequel? I didn't realize that.
It made $228m worldwide on a $110m budget before DVD sales. Heck it basically just broke over even with its USdom take. It just shows yet again that the notion about the net of "a film has to make 2-3times its budget" to garner sequels and/or be called a "hit" is a myth more times than it works in its favor.
It basically boils down to the studio CEO to say "Go!".. that word will come easy if the projected net profit is indeed in the 2/3x production cost or above margin but if the CEO likes the concept or the producer is a good enough sweet talker he may convince him to support something that will only make a moderate profit (better than no profit).

This is why Serenity actually got made at all.. someone quite high in management liked Firefly and Joiss Whedon and had faith in the production to greenlight it.. it would never knock down Star Wars or come close to it but once in a while Hollywood takes a risk.

As to Ghost Rider in general.. visually it was awesome. Not a huge Cage fan but there are worse actors out there and somehow he suited that role (not too great a follower of Ghost Rider but it's a cool concept). The first movie was kind of bland as most introductory movies are because you need half the movie to set up everything which makes the end seem kind of rushed but it's inevitable.

Let's wait and see.. i definitely want to see a guy whose head is wreathed in flames and who sents evil things back to hell with his flaming chains of doom

Re: Ghost Rider 2: Spirit of Vengeance Discussion, Pics etc Till Relea

Thanks, I was about to post this earlier.

The movie will release almost 5yrs to the date of when the first came out.
Sony's Columbia Pictures has set a February 17, 2012 release date for Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, directed by Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor.

The sequel, again starring Nicolas Cage, has started shooting in Bucharest, Romania.

The first film hit theaters on February 16, 2007 and earned $228.7 million worldwide.
It feels like its been longer than that since it came out in '07. Still the fact that it's started shooting catches me by surprise. I thought shooting was slated till October. Even better that means we might get some on set spy photos soon.

Ciaran Hinds is to be the villain. Good choice.

Re: Ghost Rider 2: Spirit of Vengeance Discussion, Pics etc Till Relea

He was great in ROME, which is all I know him from but he is good actor. I hope he is given some material that the can really bring to the screen in a memorable way.

Also at SHH, they are reporting that Violante Placido(The American) will have a role as the mother of the child wanted by dark forces.
Ciaran Hinds is in negotiations to play the devil in Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance and actress-singer Violante Placido is also in talks to join the cast.

Heat Vision reports that "the story sees Johnny Blaze, aka Ghost Rider (Nicolas Cage), hiding out in remote Eastern Europe and struggling to repress his curse. Blaze is recruited by a sect to take on the devil (Hinds), who wants to take over his mortal son's body on the boy's birthday.

Placido (The American) will play the boy's mother."


Filming is going to start in a few weeks so there likely may be some additional casting in the coming weeks just prior.

Looks like Thor won't be Idris Elba's only Marvel comics adaptation:

This doesn't sound like a character description from the GR books, not one I'm too familar with anyway.
Elba will play “an alcoholic warrior monk tasked with finding Ghost Rider".
Anyone know if this sounds like a known character? Sounds like the character will likely be the second main lead and once he finds Johnny will be an ad-hoc sidekick.

I think Elba as Luke Cage would be awesome but I love the Blade character and vamps just haven't simmered down in popularity since the first Blade.

^ If they make another Blade movie (and I'd go see it), I don't see any reason (other than jail!) why Snipes can't return. He IS Blade. You only have to look at Sticky Fingaz' version to see how hard it is to replace The Wes.

I concur. I'd rather see Idris as Luke Cage or even Black Panther. Chewetol Eijelfor or however you spell his name would be good too.

The newest bit of gossip casting possibiites is that Christopher Lambert may get a bit part in the sequel.
Lambert has resurfaced via a Highlander facebook page (via Moviehole) to say that he’s currently “in talks to do Ghost Rider 2 with Nicolas Cage”, though no other details were given. Keep in mind, though, that this is second-hand news from someone reporting that this is something Lambert said.
Be curious to see if this pans out and if it does what role he might be talking about getting. Production starts up in just a few more weeks.
