The film was just pushed back to Feb. 16, 2007, but Sony Pictures on Tuesday provided a first look at the movie Ghost Rider at the film's official site.

A 10-second flash clip shows Nicolas Cage and his CGI alter ego, with Cage's voiceover. "I'm the only who can walk among both worlds...the Ghost Rider," Cage says.

Writer/director Mark Steven Johnson described the technique used to bring Ghost Rider to life on the screen.

"We film Nic or his double, dressed as the Ghost Rider, with the spikes, chains, leather and everything on him. But he wears an interactive light collar around his neck, sometimes a whole green helmet, and that's what we're going to be removing," Johnson said. "So it is the person, it is the actor, but the head itself is CG. And that was our biggest challenge, making sure it looks absolutely fantastic.

"And being able to use fire as a way to give expression, which you can't with a skull. You take the shadows of the fire and the way the fire moves to give expressions and moods, which is really great because you can't get that in the comic. You can see it change before your eyes.

"When Ghost Rider's angry, he'll go white-hot with flame. When he gets sad, it will literally go blue. There's a way you can use the fire as an extension of his personality."

"I'm absolutely delighted that Justice #2 is going back to press," Braithwaite said. "This series is bringing out the best in the whole creative team, and the response from fans and professionals to the first two issues has been amazing, and I'd like to thank them all for their support.
