It might not be too long before fans get their first glimpse of the Ghost Rider from the upcoming film.

At last month's Ghost Rider panel at Comic-Con International, writer/director Mark Steven Johnson presented a clip without the actual Ghost Rider, simply because principal photography had only recently ended and special effects to create the character weren't complete.

Since that time, the Spirit of Vengeance has begun to take shape, producer Gary Foster told The Continuum.

"We have seen the first iteration on Ghosty himself and the result was very exciting," Foster told The Continuum. "SPI (Sony Pictures Imageworks) and Kevin Mack are doing a great job."

Foster said that post-production on Ghost Rider is "going great."

"Mark is hard at work on his cut," he said. "We are expecting to see something in the next weeks."

Foster said that the filmmakers have yet to decide on a composer to score Ghost Rider.

The film -- starring Nicolas Cage, Eva Mendes, Wes Bentley, Peter Fonda and Sam Elliott -- is targeted to be in theaters next summer.

"All in all, we are on schedule and feeling very good about how all aspects of the film are progressing," Foster said.

Look for more on Ghost Rider soon here in The Continuum.



Kevin Grevioux, who played Raze in the Underworld movie, is providing the voice of Solomon Grundy in this Saturday's network debut episode of The Batman on Kids' WB!.

Grevioux, who also co-wrote and associate produced Underworld, is a huge comics fan. He previously appeared in comics-based films Men in Black II, Steel, The Mask and Batman Forever.

(To read The Continuum's fall 2003 interview with Grevioux, CLICK HERE.)

Here's how the episode, "Grundy's Night," is described:

"Solomon Grundy, a legendary zombie, emerges from a swamp on Halloween to wreak havoc on Gotham. But Batman and Alfred discover that there is more to Grundy than there appears."

Kids' WB! on Wednesday announced that the Saturday, Sept. 3 episode of The Batman will be "Strange Minds."

Here's how the episode is described:

"Joker takes Detective Yin hostage, but once captured, he refuses to tell of her whereabouts. Convinced it's the only way to lear Yin's location before she meets her demise, Batman uses a device created by Professor Hugo Strange to enter the bizarre brain of Joker in search of an answer."

Hugo Strange's voice is done by the late Frank Gorshin, best known as The Riddler from the 1960s Batman television series.
