Johnny Deep would like to be part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and is watching Ghost Rider
The Fantastic Animals villain would be interested in participating in a Ghost Rider reboot that seeks to be part of a successful franchise that relaunches a career in decline. Even before being removed from the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, following Amber Head's lawsuit for mistreatment, Depp has been reaping several commercial failures following his participation in films with little success and little received by critics, which were undoubtedly compensated for his stellar performance as in Whitey Bulger in the biopic Black Mass, but most of the time we saw him put on a strange wig again and play quite diverse characters.
Although he appears to be viewed as the victim in his ongoing legal battles with his ex-wife Amber Heard, the constant waves of unwanted publicity have done his position in the industry no favors, so much so that rumors circulate that he has been begging his old friend Robert Downey Jr. to get him a job, and the Iron Man star responded by offering Depp a role in Sherlock Holmes 3.
Of course, he's still part of the Fantastic Beasts franchise, but things aren't looking very good on that front either, after he played the title character in what was comfortably the worst installment in the entire Wizarding World both critically and critically. ticket office. However, now we hear that the 57-year-old actor has another big-name property in his sights and wants to become part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
According to posts from the same sources that said Marvel was working on the Disney Plus series for She-Hulk and Ms. Marvel before any of them were announced, they claim that Depp is a huge Ghost Rider fan and has him told Marvel that he wants to participate in the reboot, with the villain Bounty Hunter being his preferred role.
Unsurprisingly, the baddie lives up to his nickname, and can generally be seen riding a black horse while tracking down his targets wielding a shotgun that shoots hellfire in the service of Mephisto. There's no guarantee that he'll get his wish, but with Keanu Reeves heavily tied to the MCU's Ghost Rider, if the project gets the official green light in the near future, then Depp could be considered to bring the villain to life.
Bounty Hunter first appeared in Ghost Rider Vol 2 No. 29 of 1978, it was created by Roger McKenzie and Don Perlin. The character was an immoral bounty hunter from the Old West named Haskill who was killed by the brother of one of his victims. Hell was a lot like a bar, and the bartender offered him a chance at life if he wanted to be the bounty hunter from hell. All he had to do was bring in fifty souls without any failure. Of course, he failed with Blaze and that's why he was claimed for hell.
