Showing some love to his German fans, Nicolas Cage was spotted at a photocall for his new film “Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance” today (January 23) in Berlin.
The “National Treasure” star showed up at the Hotel de Rome where he posed for pictures and chatted with the press ahead of the film’s premiere.
In a recent interview, Nicolas explained that while the new “Ghost Rider” flick is the second in the franchise, he considers it an independent work.
“I don’t see this as a sequel at all. I see this as Ghost Rider: Spirit Of Vengeance. The other movie was Ghost Rider. This movie is Ghost Rider: Spirit Of Vengeance.”
“Johnny Blaze is in a much different place in this movie. It’s a much edgier, almost cynical interpretation compared to the firstGhost Rider. Because in that movie, Johnny was trying to keep everything at bay, to keep things from erupting.”
Cage added, “I couldn’t get my head around how I was supposed to perceive something like that to be a hero, so I was automatically attracted to that complexity. It’s easy to love Superman, it’s easy to love Captain America, but it’s a challenge to love the Ghost Rider. As I got older that carried on into my dramatic work – I’m always looking for flawed characters who have a pathos and a kind of tragedy to them.”
