Fans of the Ghost Rider lawsuit between creator Gary Friedrich and Marvel Comics appears to have been canceled before its resolution could be published. The Hollywood Reporter says that Friedrich's lawyer told the judge that the parties have agreed to resolve all claims to the ownership of Ghost Rider's 1972 origin. This avoids a dispute over whether or not the allegedly ambiguous work for hire agreements in place at Marvel during that time period were clear and legally binding, a point that has been disputed in several cases over the years, most famously with the family of Jack Kirby. The terms of the settlement have not been revealed, leaving many fans upset that the lawsuit will apparently end on a cliffhanger. No word yet on who will get custody of Nicholas Cage.
