Supernerd Nicolas Cage is itching for some crossover action!
“I would love to have Ghost Rider drive onto a ‘Spider-Man’ set; that would be fun,” Nicolas Cage told us over the weekend, insisting that he’s eager to contribute to the cross-pollination of movie superheroes that has become all the rage. “A Marvel team-up? That could happen.”
While a GHOST RIDER sequel is seemingly in the works, there’s news of other Marvel movies guest stars — Samuel L. Jackson will appear in the Iron Man movie as Nick Fury and there’s reportedly an onscreen crossover between IRON MAN and HULK 2. What’s next? A Civil War movie?
Meanwhile, WANTED, based on the Mark Millar JG Jones comics, has moved from a spring release to a summer slot:
In making the date-change announcement, Nikki Rocco, Universal Pictures’ President of Distribution, stated, “After an early look at “Wanted”, we are certain that it fulfills its promise as a stunning, committed, thrilling, eye-popping vision that introduces a bold new narrative. We believe it can stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the event titles of the summer and will give audiences a chance to discover a fresh new alternative. We are excited to date the film on June 27.”
On its new release date the crime saga will go up against Pixar’s Wall-E and the Tom Cruise WWII pic Valkyrie.
