Film captures hero's universal appeal

Page 3 of 3

Ghost Rider One of Marvel's most unusual heroes -- a motorcycle-riding stuntman whose demonic pact resulted in a flaming skull for a head -- has found his film stranded in pre-production hell for quite a while. At present, those involved are Nicolas Cage, who would play the title character, Jon Voight, who would function as producer and co-star, and the Blade writing- directing team of David S. Goyer and Stephen Norrington.

And this is only the tip of the iceberg: Plans are also underway for film versions of The Punisher (all the better to erase memories of the 1989 Dolph Lundgren debacle), Captain America, The Sub-Mariner and The Silver Surfer. Meanwhile, competitor DC Comics is also moving forward with two new Batman flicks (Batman: Year One and Batman Beyond) as well as Catwoman, starring Ashley Judd. *
