Norman Reedus likes motorcycles. If you don't know that by now, then it's a safe bet you haven't been watching him on The Walking Dead where he rides a motorcycle regularly, or heard about his new reality show, Ride With Norman Reedus, which is literally about him riding a motorcycle around the U.S. with pals and taking in the sites and sounds the country has to offer.
Well, Reedus, at this point a comicbook adaptation veteran, certainly knows of a famous motorcycle-riding superhero, Marvel Comics' Ghost Rider. When Uproxx asked him if he'd be up for that particular vehicle, he seemed enthusiastic, even calling out the signature style of the character.
"Hell yeah. It would be a blast. Do I get a skull face that's on fire and all that stuff? Fuck yeah. I'm down," Reedus said. The easy-going actor, a fan favorite on The Walking Dead, also told them he enjoyed Nicholas Cage's version.
Ghost Rider has been rumored as a possible "wave two" character for Marvel and Netflix's partnership, after his rights for live action development returned to Marvel a couple of years ago. Cage made two films with the character, the first moderately received and the second widely panned, though he made those films partially self-funded and out of a true love for Johnny Blaze. If Ghost Rider does go to series on Netflix, rumor has it the series will be paired with other supernaturally-inclined characters like Blade, as the characters once shared a line-up called "Midnight Sons."
Whether Reedus could take on such a role in addition to his work on The Walking Dead is unsure - and no one knows if the role is even coming up for grabs anytime soon, but one thing's for sure: he's got the bike part down.
Ride with Norman Reedus premieres on Sunday June 12 at 10pm on AMC.0comments
