Ghost Rider returns to Marvel

Marvel have regained the movie rights to the Ghost Rider character.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly (via Comic Book Movie), Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige revealed that the rights have transferred back from Columbia Pictures, also acknowledging the less-than-stellar big-screen outings that character has had in the past. However, he was also quick to point out that just because they have rights again, that does not mean a new film is forthcoming.


“Whenever a character comes back to us, it’s usually because the other studios don’t want to make the movies anymore – and that usually means the [previous] movies may not have been particularly well-received.

They all have potential, but we’re not going to say ‘We got it back – make it’.”


This news follows from confirmation previously that Daredevil has also rejoined the Marvel family following the expiration of 20th Century Fox’s film rights.
