I hate the bottle openers at the Major Spoilers HQ. They are general store end aisle grabs, and while they do the job (for the most part), they are plain and boring, and I don’t set them out when company comes over – which probably explains why everyone is so thirsty on game night. Diamond Select Toys has two new bottle openers that are now on the “Under Consideration” list, and just may find their wide mouths grabbing the next bottled beverage when company sits down on game night.
Or – “What All The Hubbub Has Been About…”
Back in 1971, Gary Friedrich was one of Marvel’s celebrated Bullpen, working on such comic-book stalwarts as The Incredible Hulk, Captain America and a the pre-Wolverine (and just barely pre-cancellation) Uncanny X-Men. His co-creation of Ghost Rider in Marvel Spotlight #5 was one of the bellwethers of a phenomenon of monster anti-heroes in comics, and cemented the flaming-skulled cyclist as one of Marvel’s most recognizable second-tier heroes. (As an aside, he created an earlier hero with a similar gimmick, the short-lived Hell-Rider.)
With the recent ruling in Gary’s lawsuit against Marvel, I thought it might be a good time to take a look in the Longbox Of Doom at the stories over which this legal battle has been waged…
This weekend, the sequel to the 2007 Ghost Rider flick flew into theaters.
In the successor to the worldwide hit “Ghost Rider”, Johnny still struggling with his curse as the devil’s bounty hunter is hiding out in a remote part of Eastern Europe when he is recruited by a secret sect of the church to save a young boy from the devil. At first, Johnny is reluctant to embrace the power of the Ghost Rider, but it is the only way to protect the boy and possibly rid himself of the curse forever.

This looks much better than the first movie. Let’s hope it actually is.
Did you know there was a new Ghost Rider movie coming out? I did, but did my best to try and forget all about it. H’wood doesn’t want you to forget about it either, which is why there is a new television spot for Ghost Rider 2: Spirit of Vengeance now airing.

Coming Soon has nabbed an exclusive look at the first poster for the second Ghost Rider movie. While we don’t see a flaming skull, or Nick Cage, flaming chains are the next best thing.
Empire has the first official photos from the upcoming Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance movie, and though I liked the look of the first Ghost Rider pics when they appeared years ago, I really like the smokey burnt Rider we see here.
