Ryan Gosling has it all. The star starred in the most expensive film in the history of Netflix —Occult Agent— and was cast as the protagonist of one of the most anticipated features of 2023: Barbie. With the success of the 41-year-old actor in Hollywood, Kevin Feige wants to see him in the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe).
After announcing numerous news at San Diego Comic-Con 2022, the Marvel boss received curious and unexpected information. According to Josh Horowitz of MTV NewsRyan Gosling expressed a desire to play the Ghost Rider🇧🇷 Surprised by the interest, Kevin Feige opened the doors to the protagonist of Hidden Agent.
“Well, if Ryan Gosling wants to play Ghost Rider…”, Feige hinted. “Ryan is unbelievable. I would love to find a place for him in the MCU. Him dressed as Ken in Venice Beach gets more buzz than the giant movies that opened that weekend. It’s amazing!” added the Marvel boss.
The problem is that Norman Reedus (The Walking Dead) had already expressed his willingness to play the anti-hero. Now, the final decision will rest with Feige. And with the confirmation of Thunderbolts and the imminent release of Blade, the arrival of Johnny Blaze becomes more and more of a reality.
The debuts of Blade and Deadpool 3 will solidify the anti-hero space in the Avengers world. And, to spell out the new era of Marvel, the Thunderbolts will show up to mess up the structures and hierarchy of this story.
In Marvel comics, Baron Zemo wanted revenge on Captain America and the Avengers. Therefore, the villain began to assemble a team. However, before he attacks his rivals, Earth’s Mightiest Heroes and the Fantastic Four disappear after a battle with Onslaught.
In the comics, Deadpool and Ghost Rider were once part of the Thunderbolts. But, according to Deadline, the Abomination (Tim Roth), US Agent (Wyatt Russell), Baron Zemo (Daniel Brühl), Ghost (Hannah John-Kamen), Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan), Taskmaster (Olga Kurylenko) and Yelena Belova (Florence Pugh) will be the members of this unprecedented group.
