Please let it happen… Norman Reedus as Ghost Rider?


Sometimes, there is casting so perfect that not even the assholes on Twitter get upset about it.

Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool. Patrick Stewart as Professor X. And now… Norman Reedus as Ghost Rider?

The rights to the infamous hog-riding spirit of vengeance recently returned to Marvel, and obviously there’s a rich cinematic universe to welcome soul-sold superhero Johnny Blaze to. But who would play this fiery-headed furioso?

Well, it just turns out that The Walking Dead‘s Norman Reedus has his eye on the part – and damn, wouldn’t he be perfect?

“Fuck yeah, I’m down,” Norman said at the suggestion. “Do I get a skull face that’s on fire and all that stuff? Hell yeah, it’d be a blast!”

Despite TWD fans warning “If Darryl Dies, We Riot” there are rumors abound that he’s the one who took the fatal blow at the end of last season’s finale – which would definitely free up his schedule for filming. In fact, he’s also on the air in the motorcycle-themed Ride, so it’s possible this is more than just wishful thinking. Maybe Alexandria’s loss is the Marvel Universe’s gain.

What do you think? Could there be any more perfect casting for Ghost Rider?

Check out the promo for Norman’s new show on AMC:



Militant Ginger Born and raised in the cathedral city of Winchester, Roland earned his Eurotrash merit badge in Paris before moving to America to seek his fortune. If you've seen it, please give him a shout, because he's still looking. A digital Don Draper with a Hemingway complex, Roland pays the bills with his social media savvy, but under various nom de plumes is a top-ranked Amazon author after hours, and is impatiently awaiting the day he can give up the rat race forever and write schlock in a cabin in the mountains.
