First Look At Ghost Rider In Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
EW.com posted the image of Gabriel Luna as Robbie Reyes, a spirit of vengeance that drives a hell blazin' car and not a motorcyle.
“As always, we are going to put our own spin on the character,” executive producer Jed Whedon said. “We are staying true to the comics in the places where we feel like it’s really important — we love the character’s family dynamic and the East L.A. kid in him."
With Marvel Studios releasing Doctor Strange this year, Marvel TV is launching their own magical character on the heels of its release.
"It started out with a guy building a suit using science, and then we met aliens that are the origin of the myths behind some of our gods, and this year Doctor Strange comes out,” Whedon says. “We’re opening it up even further to the world of things we don’t totally understand, or as Thor says, ‘Magic is science that we don’t understand.’ Well, we’re getting into some very, very fancy science.”
While we have yet to see Gabriel Luna with the flaming skull, it's in the works.
"Our team will definitely be trying to science this guy with the flaming skull," EP Maurissa Tancharoen said.
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 4 premiers Tuesday, Sept. 20 at 10 p.m. ET on ABC.
