Comic-Con saw Marvel TV announce that a version of Ghost Rider will be a part of Agents Of SHIELD Season 4.

While the bad news is that the Ghost Rider they are using in Agents of SHIELD isn't Johnny Blaze or Dan Ketch, the good news is that Kevin Feige may have found a way around that for Marvel Studios movies through Doctor Strange. (Note: Marvel TV is separate from Marvel Studios. It could probably be argued that Marvel TV isn't even a part of the MCU.)

The Ghost Rider that will be featured in Agents Of SHIELD is named Robbie Reyes and he drives a car (yep, no motorcycle). ABC released info for Agents Of SHIELD Season 4 that includes mention of the car-bouncing Spirit of Vengeance. See below.

Agents of SHIELD Season 4 premiers Tuesday, September 20th in its new timeslot of 10:00 PM ET.

Synopsis:

In the aftermath of their journey to another planet, Director Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) and the rest of the team were driven more than ever to put an end to the Hydra organization. Little did they know that they were up against the deadliest threat they’ve ever faced – an extremely powerful Inhuman, Hive, who was transported back from Maveth in the body of their worst enemy, Grant Ward. The team was able to thwart and kill Hive and take down Hydra, but they are all still mourning the death of fellow agent and Inhuman, Lincoln Campbell.

In light of the Sokovia Accords, and with Hydra obliterated, S.H.I.E.L.D. has been legitimatized again and no longer needs to operate in the shadows. Since the world presumes that Coulson is dead, the organization needed a new Director (Jason O’Mara) to be the face of the organization. Coulson finds himself back in the role as an agent and teamed with Mack (Henry Simmons), and together they are tasked with tracking down and confirming the presence of Enhanced people, aka Inhumans. They have been trying to track down and capture Daisy (Chloe Bennet), aka Quake, who has gone rogue in an attempt to atone for sins from the past. But with the world believing that Daisy is a dangerous outlaw who has taken down banks and bridges, the new Director has no qualms about taking her down for good. Agent May (Ming-Na Wen) is tasked with training specialist strike teams, and Fitz (Iain De Caestecker) and Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) have taken a big step forward in their relationship. But with Simmons’ new promotion as Special Advisor to the Director in Science and Technology, Fitz, as well as her former team members, finds it hard to confide in or trust her since she’s now the Director’s confidant.

Robbie Reyes (Gabriel Luna) will roar into the lives of Agent Coulson and the team as a junkyard mechanic who can turn on a dime into the terrifying Ghost Rider. Will Robbie be a friend or foe to S.H.I.E.L.D. – as well as the world, itself? Meanwhile, Fitz discovers that socially awkward genius and friend Dr. Radcliffe (John Hannah) has started putting the finishing touches on a new, secret invention.
