More often than not, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. makes use of Marvel characters the movies would never get around to. That’s why no one was particularly surprised that Season 4's introduction of Ghost Rider would use the less-familiar Robbie Reyes version over Johnny Blaze, but according to EPs, Blaze was at least on the table.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. opting to include an iteration of Ghost Rider in Season 4 opens any number of doors for new Marvel characters, but comic fans may also have picked up on Robbie Reyes’ connection to Daisy Johnson’s father, played in Season 2 by Kyle MacLachlan. Agents bosses have their own spin on the new Ghost Rider’s origin, but will we see Daisy’s dad return this year?
Even as Ghost Rider prepares to light up Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 4, it could be time yet before Marvel’s Avengers-adjacent drama shows us the fully-realized flaming skull. At the very least, the new Spirit of Vengeance still has a sweet ride, now seen cruising around set with a precarious-looking Daisy Johnson hanging on for dear life.
Last month, Marvel announced a whole slew of titles that fall under the new Marvel Now banner, but it seems one of them may have slipped through the cracks. Today, the publisher has announced a new ongoing Ghost Rider title once again starring Robbie Reyes as the flame-headed vengeance seeking anti-hero.
In 2016, Jason Aaron is a superstar writer working on titles like The Mighty Thor and Star Wars, while also putting out hit creator-owned books such as Southern Bastards. Several years ago, however, he was an up-and-comer with one hit Vertigo miniseries and an ongoing that was starting to garner some buzz, and he was let loose on a handful of Marvel titles where he established himself as a key player for the company to build itself around.
This week, Comixology has a sale on select titles from across Jason Aaron's time at Marvel Comics, and among them are some comics that you may have missed when they were coming out, which you absolutely need to grab while they're on sale.
Now that Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has its new director for Season 4, it’s about time Coulson’s crew checks in on the state of affairs in the MCU. We know things will be riding a bit Ghost-lier in its new timeslot, but what major change to the cinematic universe is the first Season 4 synopsis teasing?
San Diego Comic-Con always offers a wealth of announcements for upcoming Marvel and DC movies and television shows, and this year might be the biggest one yet. With more comic book adaptations than ever, and studios diving deeper into the publishers' rosters of heroes and villains, there's a lot to keep up with, so we've rounded up all the major superhero casting announcements from this year's show.
Now that the vengeance demon’s out of the bag, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 4 still has a world of work ahead to make Ghost Rider fit in with its typically super-science approach. Easing into that transition likely steered Agents more toward Marvel NOW! Ghost Rider Robbie Reyes, while Marvel TV bosses suggest that Doctor Strange will open up the MCU to a bit more magical thinking.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. gave us some Ghost-ly good news already, but Season 4 may yet be its most Marvel-ous, judging by the Comic-Con 2016 panel. Check out the major new addition for Season 4, and preview a darker tone to come in our full panel report!
We’ll insist to the day we die that Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. already had a chain-wielding firebrand, but it looks like Ghost Rider is coming to Season 4 after all. Straight from Comic-Con 2016, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. confirms that the Robbie Reyes iteration of Marvel’s hothead will debut in Season 4, as played by Gabriel Luna.
