It’s being rumoured that Johnny Depp is very interested in the Ghost Rider role who might be involved in a future MCU movie.

This is a strange one, but We Got This Covered’s sources are claiming that Johnny Depp is trying to talk to Marvel Studios about playing Ghost Rider.

He’s reportedly been a fan for the Marvel Comics character since he was a kid and he’s desperate to play him on-screen.

There have been a lot of rumours about Ghost Rider coming to the MCU.

They have the rights back, so it makes sense to think that they might want to bring him into the MCU at some point.

However, before this rumour was put out there, it was being said that Keanu Reeves was Kevin Feige’s top choice for the role.

It seems as though Johnny Depp’s now put his hat in the ring.

Honestly, I don’t think he’d be a terrible choice for the role.

Hopefully, things will start looking up for the actor once the whole The Sun newspaper and Amber Heard court drama is behind him.

It was recently revealed that he asked his friend Robert Downey Jr. for a role in the upcoming Sherlock Holmes movie.

Maybe he might also ask him for a hand in getting the Ghost Rider role.

The last actor to play the role was Nic Cage, and they both share a similar manic energy on-screen.
