First (Official) Images Debut From Ghost Rider: Spirit Of Vengeance

A few days after low-resolution scans made their way online, Empire magazine has premiered the real thing — the first stills from Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, the sequel to Columbia Pictures’ 2007 film. We get a peek at a scary-eyed Idris Elba as the motorcycle-riding monk Moreau, Nicolas Cage looking, well, Nicolas Cage-y as Johnny Blaze and, best of all, Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor’s take on Marvel’s flaming antihero and his ride.

Spirit of Vengeance, which opens Feb. 17, 2012, picks up several years after the events of the first film, with the tormented Blaze in self-imposed exile until he’s approached by Moreau to protect a mother and her young son from Roarke/Blackout (Johnny Whitworth), who possesses detailed knowledge of Ghost Rider. (Don’t miss Comic Book Resources’ exclusive interview with Whitworth from Comic-Con International.)

The photos and accompanying article appear in the new issue of Empire, on sale now.

    I weep for all the rodents that lost their lives so that Cage could have yet another bad hairpiece.

    Idk if I like the jacket without the spikes…. Those made it very cool in the last movie.

    Wait, Cage is in this film too!?  Why are they doing another movie with him?

    So we can see his head on fire.  That’s why I watched the first one.

    I am onboard!  I really wanted to like the first GH movie but I just couldn’t; it sucked; where were the classic villians; lame plot.  It is so nice to read Blackout is in this one!!!  And that new GH design is unbelievably sweet!!!!
