It’s been a long since fans have seen Ghost Rider on the big screen. Nicolas Cage last played the iconic anti-hero in Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance (2011). Fans got to see the super hero appear again in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. with a new iteration of the character with Gabriel Luna as Robbie Keyes instead of Johnny Blaze.

There have been a few different characters who have been Ghost Rider over the past few decades, but Marvel hasn’t brought any of them into the MCU. Fans have wondered who might play the character with rumors of a Midnight Sons project coming in Phase Six.

The Walking Dead star Norman Reedus hoped he would have a chance, but it seems that Ryan Gosling will be the actor most likely to star as the iconic biker with a vengeance. In a recent interview, Feige quickly shared his thoughts on Ghost Rider, confirming he would love to see Gosling be the MCU’s Ghost Rider:

Will  @RyanGosling be #GhostRider and what does the future hold for #HarryStyles in the #MCU? #KevinFeige give @joshhorowitz the scoop at #SDCC2022.

Ghost Rider might not show up in the MCU anytime soon, as Feige didn’t say they had an actor already playing the role. Ghost Rider will likely appear in 2025 and could potentially show up as late as 2026, which is very far away for Marvel fans. Phase Six will likely give the hero his own Disney+ series or movie, but that could be in 2024 or as late as 2026.

Hopefully, fans will get to see the iconic character sooner, as the Midnight Sons would be such a fun project to introduce the hero into the MCU.

The MCU is just beginning to add more super hero teams into the Marvel universe because now, the Avengers need all the help they can get. It is only a matter of time before we see the Young Avengers, Illuminati, Defenders, Midnight Sons, X-Men, Fantastic Four, and the Thunderbolts enter the MCU.

Do you think Ryan Gosling will actually be the next Ghost Rider? Let us know what you think!

Phase Four might be coming to a close, but MCU fans have a lot to look forward to with Phase Five and Phase Six. On Disney+, you can watch Moon Knight, Ms. Marvel, and She-Hulk on August 17. For movies, Doctor Strange In the Multiverse of Madness is now on Disney+ with  Thor: Love and Thunder in theaters, and of course, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is released on November 11.
