Nicholas Cage: Expect A New Kind Of “Ghost Rider.”

Via ComicBook Movie, the veteran actor lets audiences know what to expect from the continuing adventures of everyone’s favorite Satanically possessed undead motorcycle rider:

“Johnny Blaze is in a much different place in this movie, It’s a much edgier, almost cynical interpretation compared to the first Ghost Rider. Because in that movie, Johnny was trying to keep everything at bay, to keep things from erupting.”

“I couldn’t get my head around how I was supposed to perceive something like that to be a hero, so I was automatically attracted to that complexity. It’s easy to love Superman, it’s easy to love Captain America, but it’s a challenge to love the Ghost Rider. As I got older that carried on into my dramatic work – I’m always looking for flawed characters who have a pathos and a kind of tragedy to them.”
