Adam and I caught the panel for Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance and you can click here to read his thoughts on what we saw.  Personally, I thought that the presentation was fighting tooth and nail to convince a skeptical audience that A) Ghost Rider is cool, B) This movie will be way better than the first film.  I probably will never think Ghost Rider is cool but I think he can be silly and directors Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor (Crank) seem to understand how to have some fun with the character.  While we can have some laughs about the notion that anything Ghost Rider rides will become a hell-version of that thing (/Film’s Russ Fischer speculated on hookers and toilets), I have to admire the film’s lunacy.

The first images from the film have gone online and you can see that the biggest physical change is that Ghost Rider’s skull has gone from white to a charred black.  Hit the jump to check out the images which also include a look at Idris Elba doing some motorcyclin’.  Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance opens in 3D on February 17, 2012.

Images from the latest issue of Empire and scanned by The Film Stage.

Here’s the synopsis for Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance:

The film sees Johnny Blaze, aka Ghost Rider (Cage), hiding out in remote Eastern Europe and struggling to repress his curse. Blaze is recruited by a sect to take on the devil (Ciaran Hinds), who wants to take over his mortal son’s body on the kid’s birthday.

    It’ll probably look better in motion but that photo of ghost rider in that background just looks stupid.

    Idris Elba is wondering what the hell he’s doing in this movie.

    Idris Alba looks so gawd damn seriously cool in that pic!. Just on the strenght of that pic alone I want to know more about this pic( I thought the first Ghost Rider movie was seriously lame) and the new image of the Ghost Rider sure looks….lame.

  • Lob Taylor

    I just want Idris Alba’s leather jacket period!
    Ghost Rider first movie sucked, the choice of Nic Cage was a risk that failed miserably and should have been rectified. So far am yet to see anything to make me think otherwise…apart from that leather coat

      Notice also that he’s strapping a FN P90, 50 rounds in a magazine awesome.

    —Needs more flames around the head. Make him creepy. Give him more style. C’mon! Still looks boring u_u zZ

  • Cole

    stupid movie for morons !!!

  • Dane

    All they gotta do, is Make it rated R(I mean in the comics, he teams up with Blade for crying out loud!!!) Do the Dan Ketch version, Bring in Morbius & Vengence, as the Villian. Or bring Blackheart back & do him right.

  • Billy

    Is it me,or is The Ghost Rider on a Yamaha VMAX? At least the Hell Cycle from the first movie was sinister looking being a customized chopper and all that.Maybe he couldn’t afford the import duties to bring His ride into eastern Europe! Not diggin that “charred look” either. Let’s hope these are just preliminary shots.
