Ghost Rider Director Wanted to Make an R-Rated Adaptation of the Marvel Character

The most recent movie adaptations of Marvel’s Ghost Rider isn’t necessarily considered one of the better comic book to film translations out there. In fact, some have dubbed the second movie, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, as the worst one. The sequel was not only critically panned, holding a 17% on Rotten Tomatoes and winning the Razzie for worst remake, rip-off or sequel and worst actor, but it also did horribly in the box-office.  It failed to recoup its $55 million budget in US sales, earning only $51.8 million.
