Josh Horowitz of MTV News will have a full interview up with Ryan Gosling next week, but big news was revealed on Horowitz’s Twitter account.
According to Horowitz’s tweet, he states that “Ryan and I chatted about the Nova rumors yesterday which he said aren’t true.” Earlier in the year, there were rumors of Gosling playing the Marvel character Nova. Nova, a.k.a Richard Rider became Nova after the last surviving member of Corps, Rhomann Dey, crash-landed on Earth and bestowed his powers and duty upon him.
Although Gosling denied the Nova rumors, he did state to Horowitz “…there is one superhero he wants to play…GHOST RIDER.” Ghost Rider is the name of the fictional character, superhero and anti-hero from Marvel comics and its universe, appearing as the titular protagonist of the Ghost Rider comics.
Ghost Rider was once seen on the big screen in 2007. It was directed by Mark Steven Johnson and starred Nicolas Cage.
