According to Empire
, Ryan Gosling talked to Joshua Horowitz for his Happy Sad Confused
podcast about being interested in working for Marvel.
Gosling told Horowitz that he's not connected to the Nova project that Marvel has in development with Moon Knight's Sabir Pirzada. But when it comes to Marvel projects, he mentions that he is interested in playing the character of Ghost Rider or at least Johnny Blaze, who becomes Ghost Rider.
could be good. But please keep nick cage as far away from the MCU as possible.
I love Gosling, Ghost Rider in Doctor Strange 3 or in the Blade reboot would be an amazing addition and could make a potentially very interesting story if done right.
Gosling would do a good Johnny Blaze. Jensen Ackles would fit the bill too. Regardless, Ghost Rider is a movie that should lean as much into "horror" as it can. Yes, he's Marvel but there's a good chunk of Marvel that could fit the horror genre quite well- if handled correctly.
I don't really think I imagine Ryan Gosling as the best choice for Johnny Blaze, he doesn't really have the look, I always envisioned Norman Reedus as a great Ghost Rider/Johnny Blaze in the MCU, but maybe he's a bit too old, I also thought Jensen Ackles would be a decent choice, he can really play a hard bad ass with a commanding voice.
Damn, finally someone making some sense around here. A movie where Nick Cage as Blaze passes the literal torch to Gosling as Ketch is just what we need here. Let's make it happen.
They'll probably end up casting someone like Christopher Mints-Plasse in the role. The McLovin Rider and his Flaming Mist Mobile.

Nic Cage should reprise his role as Johnny Blaze.

Gosling could play a paper bag and be great but this is one role I don't think would suit him. Dan Ketch maybe but not Johnny Blaze.
