Norman Reedus as the next Johnny Blaze?
We can see it… as a matter of fact, it’s staring us right in the face, thanks to this incredible new fan art from BritEdit (h/t Reddit), which sees The Walking Dead star saddle up as the new Ghost Rider.
Reedus’ continued interest in the demonic character has long been a point of contention among Marvel fans, who most recently watched Gabriel Luna have a crack at the iconic anti-hero on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. – for the record, he played Robbie Reyes, another soul resurrected from the brink of death to become the legendary Ghost Rider.
Could it be that Reedus is destined to play either Blaze or Reyes for a live-action MCU movie? Or perhaps there’s a better chance of him appearing on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D? The latter is surely out of the equation, as an actor of his caliber would likely cost too much.
But hey, that won’t stop the online artists from indulging in a little dream casting…

Simple, yet effective, it places Norman Reedus behind the wheel of Ghost Rider’s iconic motorbike (I love how he’s still able to wear his signature sunglasses despite half his skull being engulfed in flames).
Whether this piece of dream casting comes to pass is another question entirely, as Marvel is yet to detail its future plans for Ghost Rider beyond Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Not only that, but Reedus has also hinted at his desire to play Silver Surfer as part of a possible Fantastic Four movie, so there’s really no telling whether The Walking Dead fan favorite will get the superhero role he so craves.
