Haven't seen the second GR but if its even worse then GR1 then my god.......
As for Punisher, he would work if they just made a damn Vietnam war movie like Apocalypse Now and then a sequel similar in feel to American Gangster. They could even manage a cameo of the Punisher in Captain America as an old man still fighting his war.
And I second a Ghost Rider/Midnight Sons film or even a TV series. That's better than cop-Punisher.
Currently reading and loving: Daredevil, Deadpool, Avengers Arena, The Sixth Gun (TPB)
Suggestions are welcome.
Well, it seems that Fox has decided to pass on The Punisher tv series...
Additionally, per THR, the pilot for a television series based on The Punisher is not moving forward. ABC Studios and Fox gave a put pilot commitment to the show, with Criminal Minds writer/producer Ed Bernero onboard, but they declined to pick the pilot up to series. So for now, it appears that The Punisher is dead.
R.I.P. Don't pee in the (Dead)pool, November 2007 - January 2013
ESPECIALLY after all that Noble Kale stuff.
I wish somebody would have thought up the fairly straightforward "Hell's Bounty Hunter" angle in the 90's it would have saved me from reading a bunch of REALLY bad stories.
Its hard to make a serious film about a stunt rider with his head on fire.
The first flick aimed for cheezy fun(Peter Fonda was the Devil for christ sakes!!!) and hit the mark, the second one tried to be scary which was less sucessful.
Unless you do a Blade and go for the gore R-rating you got the best Ghost Rider movies possible considering what the character is.
Face it, the quality ceiling for a Ghost Rider movie is AT BEST somewhere between R rated monster flicks The Mimic and Jeepers Creepers 2.

"Freedom is the Right of ALL Sentient Beings" - Optimus Prime
Possibly. I was very disappointed in the last one. There was a great opportunity to push the character, and I'd say production dropped the ball on this last one. There were too many, "...what???...." moments. When he was giving the one guy the penance stare in the gravel yard, I mean...really? What was that all about?
Too many hole's in the story. I didn't look like a finished product.
I hope Marvel reacquires the rights to the character, so he can properly be re-booted. The last one sucked.
"I wanted to be the first kid on my block to get a confirmed kill."
"You said clear!". "I said it looks clear.". "Well how's it look now?".
No I think there will be more Ghost Rider movies.
He hasn't gotten a movie made that is Batman Begins quality but I don't think they'll stop trying just because of failure.
Titans are in a uphill battle with Jake Locker out for the rest of the season
Everytime I see what they are doing, I frustratingly say:
How. Can. You. FK. That. Up?
Ghost Rider has possibly the greatest look any charaters has ever had. I mean look at him, his image is pure awesomeness. Even in the second movie, they added the blackness Charcoal-thing to his look and he looked even more badass. Yet they vomited another crappy movie with a stupid story. What's wrong with these people?

Oh there will be, its my duty to make sure.
The world's Number 1 Ghost Rider Fan!!!!
They need to be more satannic and upsetting. Not funnier. Flashy visuals are the only real strength of GR outside of scary movie material.
