Ghost Rider Agents of SHIELD

If you’ve found yourself disinterested in Agents of SHIELD for one reason or another, Marvel Studios may have a good reason for you to start tuning in. At the Comic-Con 2016 panel for the ABC television series, it was revealed that Ghost Rider will be coming to the show. However, it may not be the version of Ghost Rider that most audiences are familiar with, and he may not even have a fiery motorcycle to ride.

Marvel movies ranked

Since we’ve had two releases from Marvel Studios this year, there’s been plenty of talk about ranking the movies in the Marvel cinematic universe. But with 20th Century Fox’s reboot of Fantastic Four hitting theaters this weekend (for better or worse), we thought it was a good time to rank all the Marvel movies that exist outside of the MCU, which include Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy, all the X-Men films and more.

Marvel Studios TV shows

Even though audiences are very well acquainted with the Marvel cinematic universe at this point, the television side of Marvel Studios is still in its early stages. So far only Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Agent Carter and Daredevil have hit this small screen, and while the first series left something to be desired, they’ve certainly gotten better with each new show. But what does the future of Marvel television have in store, and how will it effect the cinematic universe?

If some new rumors are to be believed, we’ll see plenty of new characters end up in Marvel Studios TV shows, and that includes the likes of Black Widow, Hawkeye, The Punisher, Blade, Ghost Rider and maybe even The Hulk. Find out more after the jump! Read More »

Ghost Rider Rights Dispute Headed Back to Court

Ghost Rider

The Ghost Rider movie franchise is laying dormant for now, but the battle over the original comic book character is rearing its ugly head once more.

A federal appeals court has just overturned a 2011 ruling which stated Marvel Comics, not author Gary Friedrich, owns the character. After reviewing the copyright case, Judge Danny Chin determined that Friedrich’s original contract with the publisher was “ambiguous” and therefore required further investigation. More on what this means for Ghost Rider and other comic book properties after the jump.

Ghost Rider head

While Sony raced to the finish line to keep the rights to Spider-Man, the same can’t be said for another major character. Rewind: a few years back, the studio was in danger of losing the rights to the webslinger after Spider-Man 3. Director Sam Raimi couldn’t come to terms on a fourth film and if Sony didn’t get a film in production within a certain time frame, Spider-Man would have been in danger of joining Marvel’s The Avengers. That’s why, just five years after its last sequel, Marc Webb’s reboot The Amazing Spider-Man was born.

Recently, rights packages lapsed for several Marvel characters once licensed to other studios, such as the Punisher and Daredevil, bringing them back to Marvel. Two more names can now be added to that list, according to Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige. A new interview confirms that despite last year’s Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, Marvel once again controls the rights to both Ghost Rider, formerly at Sony, and Blade, formerly at New Line.
