His character on The Walking Dead rides a bike, and he now has a new AMC TV series which explores motorcycle culture, so it probably won’t come as much of a surprise that real-life biker enthusiast Norman Reedus is interested in suiting up as the demonic Marvel antihero, Ghost Rider.
In a recent interview with Uproxx, here’s what the actor had to say when asked if he’d like to play the part:
Hell yeah. It would be a blast. Do I get a skull face that’s on fire and all that stuff? F— yeah. I’m down.
We’ve previously had to endure two pretty awful Ghost Rider movies starring Nicholas Cage, but a couple of years ago Marvel Studios finally got the rights to the character back and fans have been hoping to see justice done to Johnny Blaze ever since.
There’ve been rumors that the character could show up in a Netflix series along with Blade and Moon Knight, but nothing official has emerged on that just yet. If Marvel does decide to resurrect the Spirit of Vengeance, though, Reedus would seem like the perfect man for the job, don’t you think?
