Two iconic Marvel heroes, Captain America and Black Panther, have made a deal with the devil in a new piece of fan art.
Posted on Instagram by renowned fan artist BossLogic, the image gives Black Panther and Captain America the Ghost Rider treatment, replacing their visages with ghostly flaming skulls. The artist's own comments on the piece were limited to a pair of skull emojis. In a subsequent post on Twitter, BossLogic joked the post was a spoiler, writing, "... everyone turns into Ghost Rider in #AvengersEndgame"
The Ghost Rider persona is a mantle that several characters have taken on over the years. Created by Gary Friedrich, Mike Ploog and Roy Thomas, the character first appeared in 1972's Marvel Spotlight #5. Ghost Rider was last seen on the big screen in 2007's Ghost Rider and 2012's Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance. Those movies starred Nicolas Cage as Johnny Blaze. However, a different incarnation of the character has appeared in the MCU-based TV show Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., with Gabriel Luna as Robbie Reyes.
Avengers: Endgame will arrive on April 26. Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, the film stars Robert Downey Jr., Josh Brolin, Mark Ruffalo, Tom Hiddleston, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner, Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Olsen, Chadwick Boseman, Sebastian Stan, Benedict Cumberbatch, Paul Bettany, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders, Benedict Wong, Zoe Saldana, Karen Gillan, Vin Diesel, Dave Bautista, Pom Klementieff, Scarlett Johansson, Tom Holland and Anthony Mackie.
