New Ghost Rider Trailer Starring Keanu Reeves Is A Viral Smash (But Totally Fake)

While some are singing the fake trailer’s praises, others think that Keanu Reeves isn’t the right fit for Ghost Rider. “No one can replace Nick cage as Ghost rider for me,” shared @Silly_Illidan. This sentiment was surprisingly consistent in the comments section, with @franklindalmacio383 writing, “Keanu has his own character. but ghost rider will always be cage.” While many grew up on Nicolas Cage’s “Ghost Rider” flicks, those projects were largely maligned by critics. The first film has a low 27% score on Rotten Tomatoes. It seems like nostalgia still persists amongst some fans, who think the actor did a solid job. 

Will Cage’s “Ghost Rider 3” happen? Probably not, as Marvel would likely want to recast the role whenever they decide to reboot the franchise. In a Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything), Cage said he would at least hear the studio out if Marvel asked him to return as the daredevil. Still, Reeves would make a solid Ghost Rider, as he’s been a popular fan cast for years. And for what it’s worth, Ghost Rider would be the Marvel character that Reeves’ younger self would want to play. If Marvel Studios ever decides to bring back Ghost Rider to the big screen, Reeves would probably be game for it. Then again, the actor is in his late 50s, and Marvel would probably want to secure a younger actor to play the hero for several sequels.
