Nicolas Cage and Eva Mendes in Ghost Rider

Marvel Comics promises to have a strong showing this year with Spider-Man 3, The Silver Surfer and Ghost Rider all hitting the big screen this year. Ghost Rider (opening February 16 throughout San Diego) marks the first time this comic book character has been adapted to film.

When fans of Marvel Comics Ghost Rider heard that Nicolas Cage had been cast as Johnny Blaze, the man who sold his soul to the devil in order to protect the people he loved, they were a bit skeptical. But Cage came to the San Diego Comic-Con last July to make his case. He referred to himself and the fans as part of the " Ghost Rider family." Then he recounted stories of reading the comic as a child and drawing on the strength of the superhero to face the bullies in his neighborhood. His seemingly genuine affection for the source material coupled with a rumor that Cage had a Ghost Rider tattoo, helped to win over at least a fair share of the skeptics. Now with the film completed, Cage may win over a few more.

I never read Ghost Rider comics so I'm curious what fans of the comic book think of the film. -----
