Ghost Rider Officially Joining Agents of SHIELD
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
is adding a Ghost Rider from the Marvel Universe to its upcoming fourth season.
The show has been teasing this big reveal for weeks, but now it’s official that Ghost Rider will be making an appearance on the new season of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Most viewers are familiar with the film version of Ghost Rider
(starring Nicolas Cage), but this version of the character is going to be a little different.
This Ghost Rider is named Robbie Reyes, a man who took on the alter ego "after being gunned down in the street and revived by the ghost of his uncle and a Satanic serial killer."
Gabriel Luna will be playing this new character (who first appeared in the Marvel NOW! comics), who is a teenager balancing the Spirit of Vengeance's thirst for murder and school work, while also taking care of his developmentally disabled brother, Gabe, according to Variety
This is also the first time Ghost Rider will be part of the new Marvel Cinematic Universe. Since the films were produced by Sony, they aren’t considered part of the Marvel Studios canon.
Check out the new Ghost Rider character on the fourth season of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,
which premieres Tuesday, September 20 at its new time-slot of 10/9c.
