Still, the time will come when he will join the most profitable movie universe, but until then, we will show you in which movies Ghost Rider appeared in the past. So, check out our article about how many Ghost Rider movies are there and what is the best order to watch them.

How many Ghost Rider movies are there?

Until now, there have been only two Ghost Rider movies. In both movies, Nicholas Cage took the role of Johnny Blaze aka Ghost Rider. Both movies were met with negative reviews from critics, but the first Ghost Rider movie was a box office success.

Ghost Rider movies in order

The best way to watch Ghost Rider movies in order is by release date. Once the character joins the MCU, we will update this article accordingly.

Ghost Rider (2007)

Ghost Rider (2007)

A long time ago, super-famous motorcycle stuntman Johnny Blaze (Nicholas Cage) made a deal with the devil to protect the ones he loves: his father and his childhood sweetheart, Roxanne (Eva Mendes). Now the devil comes to collect the debt.

By day, Johnny is a relentless stunt driver… but by night, in the presence of evil, he becomes the Ghost Rider, a successful hunter of renegade demons. Forced to do work for the devil, Johnny is determined to face his destiny and use his curse and powers to defend the innocent.

The film was met with negative reviews from critics, but was a box office success, earning $228.7 million worldwide on a $110 million budget. Ghost Rider was released on DVD, Blu-ray and UMD on June 12, 2007.

In the new vision, directed by Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor, Johnny still struggles with his curse as the devil’s bounty hunter – but risks losing everything when he teams up with the leader of a group of rebel abbots to save a boy from the devil himself… and maybe and he could release his curse forever.

The film experienced a worse critical reception than the first film, with criticism being aimed at the script, CGI, and acting. The film grossed more than $132 million, against its $57–75 million production budget.

Nicolas Cage stated that he was “done” with the Ghost Rider films and a planned sequel was canceled.

Gabriel Luna played Ghost Rider in Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. This time, Ghost Rider wasn’t Johnny Blaze, but Roberto “Robbie” Reyes a car mechanic who, upon being murdered by the Fifth Street Locos gang members, was then resurrected by Johnny Blaze and found himself imbued with a power to transform into the demonic Ghost Rider.

Some would argue that with this appearance in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Ghost Rider got his MCU debut, but, unfortunately, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. are not considered a part of the MCU. Still, if you want to see the best adaptation of Ghost Rider on the screen to date, then you should watch Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. He comes in season 4 but is not a show regular.

So, even though Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is not a movie, we will recommend you to watch this version of Ghost Rider and that is the reason we have put it on the watch order for Ghost Rider fans.

Will there be more Ghost Rider movies?

We can’t say this for a fact, but we certainly do expect to see more Ghost Rider movies in the future. Even if he doesn’t get his own solo movie, he will most certainly appear in some of the MCU movies. Hopefully soon with all the teasers from Marvel Studios.

What is the best Ghost Rider movie?

If we are talking only about movies, then it has to be the original Ghost Rider movie from 2007. But if we are talking about the best Ghost Rider appearance on the big or small screen, then it is Gabriel Luna’s role in Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Hopefully, there will soon be more Ghost Rider movies and we will be able to update this list.
