Coming off the news that Daredevil had reverted back to Marvel, it was revealed today that the screen rights to Ghost Rider have also returned to the studio.
Entertainment Weekly confirmed the news to ComicBookMovie.com via Twitter, with further details to follow soon.
However, as Kevin Feige noted earlier this week about Daredevil, this doesn’t mean we can expect to see a Ghost Rider reboot any time soon. Said the Marvel exec, “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!'”
That said, it’s no doubt comforting for Marvel to have these characters back in the fold, just in case.
