Nicolas Cage To Play The Hero AND Villain In Ghost Rider: Spirit Of Vengeance?

Nicolas Cage To Play The Hero AND Villain In <i>Ghost Rider: Spirit Of Vengeance</i>?

A tweet from the movies directors hints that the actor will be playing both Ghost Rider and the villainous Zarathos! Hit the jump for details...

The site report that directing duo Neveldine and Taylor posted this to their Twitter account earlier today:

"The dual role of blaze/zarathos will be a nic cage classic"



The Marvel Universe Wiki states that Mephisto "merged Zarathos with stunt rider Johnny Blaze, one of the Caretaker's charges, transforming into the vigilante Ghost Rider. Blaze and Zarathos remained bonded for years, their level of control over their shared form varying; twice they were briefly separated, once by the mage Azaziah hoping to usurp Zarathos' power, and them by Mephisto as part of a wager with Asmodeus, but were rejoined both times."

While Zarathos is clearly a part of Johnny Blaze, what could this cryptic tweet point to? Well, it seems likely that we'll see a whole other side of Ghost Rider judging from the wording in the above tweet about a "dual role". It would most definitely be very interesting to see Nicolas Cage face off against himself due to Mephisto's wicked machinations, but I guess we'll just have to wait until more info is released before we find out what this tweet meant! Stay tuned to CBM in the coming months and be sure to share your thoughts below.

Written by David Goyer, production is due to begin shortly with a release date set for February 17, 2012.
