GHOST RIDER 2 Story Details?

Comicus.it has a summary of what is purported to be a May 2010 draft of the Ghost Rider 2 screenplay by Scott M. Gimple and Seth Hoffman (from a story by David S. Goyer). The movie is set to go into production soon under the direction of Crank creators Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor.

As best as we can suss out through Google translation, the story occurs years after the first movie with Johnny Blaze roaming the Earth, largely shunning people and staying in control of Ghost Rider. He meets a monk called Moreau who is part of a secret order of monks devoted to the archangel Michael. Moreau enlists Blaze to aid them in their search for a woman named Nadya and her son Danny, "who must be protected at all costs."

The villain is said to be someone called Roarke, who is pursuing the Ghost Rider for his own reasons.

Apparently the script will delve into the various Ghost Riders that have appeared throughout the centuries.

And can we bet that "Danny" is Danny Ketch?

X-MEN: FIRST CLASS' Groovy Emma Frost

Yeah, Baby! The swingin' sixties are the setting for X-Men: First Class and INF Daily has your first look at a shag-a-delic mutant from Matthew Vaughn's new movie.

Here's January Jones in a short coat, go-go-boots and a furry hat as Emma Frost (a.k.a the White Queen) in the now-filming movie for 20th Century fox. INF Daily has lots more photos from the day of filming so click through for the complete set.

First Pics: The CAPTAIN AMERICA Costume In Action

Here are the photos we've been wanting to see for some time now: our first look at one of the actual costumes for Captain America: The First Avenger.

London's Daily Mail website published tons of cool action photos involving a stunt player in full WW2 combat gear.

Frankly, these aren't the kinds of photos the studio would prefer fans see as they won't present the costume or character in the best light. The costume looks a little goofy when it's just a stunt guy standing around or riding his motorcycle. We'll expect this to look a lot better through the camera lens, with color timing and shot composition in place. But he's got wings on the helmet!

More exciting are the photos of the Hydra agents pursuing Cap. While Cap's bike looks fairly standard-issue U.S. Army, the Hydra dudes are riding heavy metal, deco, Advanced Idea Mechanics models. And check out that Kirby-tech grill on the chase car! Look closely for the Hydra Emblem serving as the hood ornament. That's just sweet!

Click through for more images from the day's filming.

Thanks to CaptainSigma for the submission.

 I like the Cap pics more than the Frost pics. She's just so dour in them at the moment that it's not capturing the character. I love her boots, however. Yum.

The cap stuff is getting me more interested in it overall, but I still have huge reservations about Johnston as the director for it. I do like that both these flicks are period pieces and hopefully can shake up things a little bit.

Emma: rockin.'

Cap: rollin.'

Looking good so far. She is indeed yummy. I like the dour face.

ZurEnArrh 9/9/2010 6:30:34 AM

Also the Cap stuff reminds me of The Rocketeer. Very happy.

I also have serious reservations about Johnson as a director, but I gotta say I'm very much digg'n the designers for the cool touches like the Hydra symbol on the bikes and the hood orniment on that car.  I love fun little touches like that.

I'm not much of an Emma Frost fan, and this "First Class" movie blew up a long time ago into a big fat blech pile so I don't much care.

GR2?  Really...aw poop...

Really looking forward to Cap!

Muenster 9/9/2010 6:39:10 AM

I NEED that car in the last picture!

The Hydra transports look pretty cool. I'm getting a bit of a pulp vibe from those photos.  Cap's wings are painted on :( maybe in the future they slap real wings on there. I like the look, wish the gloves were red instead of leathery burgundy color but I can understand why. I like Johnston's movies for the most part so I'm more optimistic than Chris here

Love Emma's look but I want to see her without that coat hiding all the good parts :)

I actually like the sound of GR2. Still wish Cage wasn't in it but even with him I enjoyed the first so I'm sure they can top it.

Loved Lang as the bad guy in AVATAR so I can't wait to see him in Conan kicking some ass with that badass weapon of his

The biggest speculation around Smallville seem to be which if any characters they plan to branch off for their own series. And a while back I think Aquaman was a heavy favorite, maybe they're leaning that way again

X-Men and Captain America look good to me.

My main concern for Smallville is that I want Lex Luthor back in some way.  Actor Michael Rosenbaum doesn't seem to be doing anything else. Shave your head one last time and send the series out with Supes main villain there!

Cap=SWEET

Emma... WTF???

Hobbs 9/9/2010 8:09:33 AM

I think the Cap outfit looks just fine without the camera.  It looks like the artist drawing on AICN rather than the hyped one Mania and others posted.  Though I'm disturbed by what Zur said it looking like Rocketeer...please God no...that was a horrible freaking movie.  Yeah, it might have cult status but there is a reason it's wasn't a hit on the big screen.

Not really into the X-Men movie...I really want Fox and Donna Schuler to lose the rights to this series.  Back in Marvels hands it would kick arse.
