<i>Ghost Rider: Spirit Of Vengeance</i> To Ride Into New York Comic Con

Hot on the heels of Tuesday's confirmation that Marvel will screen new footage of The Avengers at New York Comic Con arrives news that Columbia Pictures' Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance will also have a presence at the convention.

According to the NYCC website, co-directors Brian Taylor and Mark Neveldine will headline a presentation at 4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 15 -- just two and a half hours before The Avengers panel. Here's the official description:

After blazing a trail around the globe in the worldwide hit Ghost Rider, Nicolas Cage returns as Johnny Blaze in Columbia Pictures’ Ghost Rider – Spirit of Vengeance. Still struggling with his curse as the devil’s bounty hunter, Blaze is hiding out in a remote part of Eastern Europe when he is recruited by a secret sect to save a young boy (Fergus Riordan) from the devil (Ciaran Hinds). At first, Johnny is reluctant to embrace the power of the Ghost Rider again, but it is the only way to protect the boy – and possibly rid himself of his curse forever. Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor, the directors of the film, will be in attendance to give you a look at their vision for the film and their no-holds-barred style of directing.

The sixth annual New York Comic Con will be held Oct. 13-16 at the Jacob Javits Center in New York City. Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, which also stars Idris Elba and Johnny Whitworth, opens in 2D and 3D on Feb. 17.
