‘Ghost Rider 3′ Is a No for Nicolas Cage, Says He’s Done With the Franchise Altogether

‘Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance’ was arguably one of the biggest mistakes of 2012 with poor reviews coming from numerous outlets. (Just take a look at its score on Rotten Tomatoes.) So when will it be time to retire the flaming skull? For Nicolas Cage, at least, that time is now.

Despite the less-than-stellar reception, ‘Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance’ performed well at the box office. As Nicolas Cage himself said in a recent interview with MTV, “We made it for, like, $47 or $48 million dollars, and it approached $200 million. I view that as a success.” Still, regardless of whether the studio decides to push ahead with a ‘Ghost Rider 3,’ which Cage says is a possibility, he will not be a part of it.

“I think the ship has sailed on that one. At least with me involved,” he said. “Personally, I’m done. I’ve done what I had to do with that part. You never say never, but right now, today, I would say that I’m done.”

He continues to say that more ‘Ghost Rider’ movies could be something for the future, maybe even with a female lead, which he feels could be interesting. Hey, that’d be one way to try and change some people’s perceptions of the franchise. We’ve been aching for a female superhero movie anyway.
