Is there another 'Daredevil' waiting on the big screen?
The good news is we're 99% sure Nicholas Cage will never play Johnny Blaze, aka the Ghost Rider again. The bad news is we're worried the two Sony Pictures movies tarnished the character so much that it will be decades before he rides once more. A Marvel Comics staple since the 1970s, Ghost Rider's appeal was always more than just a flaming skull (O.K., on second thought maybe that was a lot of it). Blaze is a tragic, cursed hero whose search to free himself from his demonic possession could make for a powerful and moving multiple-season arc. And after the last movie we're 99% convinced the effects can now easily be done just as well (or better) on TV.
