Stunt motorcyclist Johnny Blaze gives up his soul to become a hellblazing vigilante, to fight against power hungry Blackheart, the son of the devil.
Nicolas Cage is an avid comics fan. He took his stage surname, Cage, from character Luke Cage. His son is named "Kal-El", Superman's Kryptonian name. He was previously considered to play Green Goblin in Spider-Man (2002), and Superman in Tim Burton's aborted film project, but Ghost Rider... ...
It's said that the West was built on legends. Tall tales that help us make sense of things too great or too terrifying to believe. This is the legend of the Ghost Rider.
When Ghost Rider takes Blackheart's souls, images of the previous kills he made are seen in the fire. However these kills would be credited to Blackheart's own soul, which is in hell (revealed the first time Ghost Rider tries to punish Blackheart earlier in the film). The souls Ghost Rider is taking are those of the villagers, and so the images that Blackheart would see in Ghost Rider's eyes would be their kills, not his.
The Marvel logo features comic-book images of the Ghost Rider in its pages; after it fully forms it blazes briefly, then turns metallic and grows spikes, replicating the Ghost Rider's transformation.
