Stranger Things Creators Duffer Brothers May Run MCU’s Ghost Rider

With Stranger Things coming to a close on Netflix, MCU may as well be eyeing the Duffer Brothers Ghost Rider.

According to Giant Freakin Robot, head honcho Kevin Feige may have started the ball rolling for MCU’s Ghost Rider and the Duffer Brothers are the ones he has in mind to run it.

The report states that the project is unclear whether it’s a full feature film or a series for streaming. Frankly, Duffer Brothers for Ghost Rider will actually be a great fit. Their keen sense for  dark, thrilling, even mysterious genre is undeniable through Stranger Things over so many years. Four seasons tackling the mystery, horror, suspense on top of coming of age drama is not an easy task. The current season that just premiered on Netflix comfortably sits on the number 1 spot in the streaming giant’s Top Ten TV Shows for June 1, 2022.

Stranger Things and Ghost Rider have quite similar elements to their story. The MCU’s vengeful anti-hero rider with his flaming skull has layers to his story that may just be right up the Duffer Brothers’ alley. Whether a film feature or a series for streaming, Ghost Rider’s multi layered character can be under the Duffer Brothers’ microscope.

A character with perhaps an evil pull yet tries to overcome it in order to save the people who matter to him the most. Sounds familiar? Where Eleven stands between her friends’ safety and the Up Side Down could be the same spot for the rider in flames. However, Ghost Rider will definitely be tackling more adult tones to its story. Stranger Things have always relayed a certain charm. This is mainly because the audiences know the band of misfits have grown up through the seasons. Specifically they used to be like Revenge of the Nerds to that and a John Hughes teenage movie behind the over all sinister energy that looms in town. The charm is still indelibly there. But audiences can’t help but notice how they are now making bigger decisions. More importantly, decisions that affect others around them.

Ghost Rider can have this kind of connection to his audience. Behind the curse is a man who has lived a normal life but made the sacrifice in exchange for saving someone he loves. Duffer Brothers can easily turn his story into a series for streaming. And with the line up of characters to be introduced for the MCU, Ghost Rider could very well be the next character on the spotlight.
