So we’ve been wondering just who everyone’s favorite motorcycle driving hot head will be tussling with when Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance 3D roars into theatres, and finally an undead answer has come!
Johnny Whitworth, who stars in this weekend’s Limitless, has confirmed that he’ll be playing Blackout in the latest film. “I play the villian who, at the beginning, up until like page 70, is human,” says Whitworth, “I’m not a very nice guy. I’m bad. I get turned into, for those who read ‘Ghost Rider’, the character Blackout. I get turned into him by the devil to complete my job. That gives me the fortitude to fight Ghost Rider and the supernatural abilities to compete on some level with that guy.”

Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance also stars Idris Elba, Violante Placido, and Ciaran Hinds. The movie finds Johnny Blaze, aka Ghost Rider (Cage), hiding out in remote Eastern Europe and struggling to repress his curse. Blaze is recruited by a sect to take on the devil (Hinds), who wants to take over his mortal son’s body on the boy’s birthday. Its scheduled release date is February 17, 2012.
It has been several years since making a deal with the Devil and Johnny Blaze (Nicolas Cage), living in self-imposed isolation, finds himself as the only person who can help save 10-year-old Danny – and ultimately the world – thanks to his unwanted and uncontrollable power – his ability to transform into the hell-on-wheels monster known as The Ghost Rider.
