The Ronin first reported on a batch of LLCs that were expected to be for upcoming Marvel projects (film, television, and animated), one of those production companies was called On Your Mark Productions and we’ve been now able to confirm it’s indeed a Marvel Studios thing. It’s unknown of it’s for film or television though.
Fans have speculated the LLC could be referring to Johnny Blaze aka Ghost Rider, given the title could be a nod to racing as the character is known for speeding around on a motorcycle.
We can’t verify if that is the character but people have been talking-up a new Ghost Rider project coming for a while now.
Rumors of a new Ghost Rider project has been circulating online for ages going to back when Marvel Studios/Kevin Feige killed Gabriel Luna’s Ghost Rider series at Hulu (spinoff of Agents of SHIELD) when Marvel Television projects were slowing tossed away. Folks had assumed that Marvel had future plans or wanted to reboot with the Johnny Blaze incarnation.
The Direct was one of the outlets talking-up development of a new Ghost Rider project.
Actor Norman Reedus (Blade II, The Walking Dead) has been campaigning for the role with a large amount of fan support behind that effort. However, I’ve been personally rooting for Keanu Reeves (John Wick., The Matrix), who was one of the original contenders to play Wolverine and has his own motorcycle company Arch Motorcycles.
Nicolas Cage previously played the role in two motion pictures.
Adding Ghost Rider to the Marvel Cinematic Universe could be yet one more step towards the studio moving in on a version of Midnight Sons, as Mahershala Ali’s Blade and Oscar Isaac’s Moon Knight are already coming as the horror/supernatural corner of the MCU grows.
Here is a rundown of other recent LLCs at Marvel Studios.
- MAGLEV TRAIN PRODUCTIONS (WAKANDA DISNEY+ SERIES)
- ON YOUR MARK PRODUCTIONS (GHOST RIDER?)
- CANTINA PRODUCTIONS (NOVA?)
- BATTLE ANYONE PRODUCTIONS
- ACID POP PRODUCTIONS
- NATURAL HISTORY PRODUCTIONS (DISNEY+ SERIES)
