Following weeks of rumors, it has now been confirmed that comic character Ghost Rider will be popping up in the fourth season of ABC’s “Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD” with Gabriel Luna set to play the role of Robbie Reyes, the most recent incarnation of the character.
In the comic, Reyes is a young mechanic living in Los Angeles possessed by the Spirit which he uses against the local gangs and to win street races. The announcement was made at the show’s Comic Con panel in San Diego on Friday.
Executive Producer/Head of Marvel Television, Jeph Loeb says: “Season 4 will unquestionably be the series’ biggest, most ambitious story yet, and it all begins with the introduction of one of our greatest legacy characters in Ghost Rider. When the Spirit of Vengeance rides into S.H.I.E.L.D., it’ll change everything.”
“Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD” returns Tuesday September 20th in its new timeslot at 10PM US-ET on ABC.
