Well, if we were hoping the addition of Ghost Rider and a 10:00 P.M. time slot would take Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. a little darker, the first Season 4 footage will really light your fire. Ghost Rider is out for vengeance in the first footage, even attaching himself as a subtitle for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 4.

It could be some time yet before any real Ghost Rider finally speeds through Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 4, but with a September 20 premiere fast approaching, we can barely keep from catching fire. See for yourself, as the first Season 4 premiere photos arrive with May, Mack, a pre-ghosting Ghost Rider and more.
It wasn’t long after Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 4 began casting a young mechanic and his brother with a disability that fans put together Robbie Reyes’ Ghost Rider joining the series. Now, just weeks before Season 4 debuts, our first synopsis for September premiere “The Ghost” reveals a Fear The Walking Dead star in a major Ghost-adjacent role.
Our first look at Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s take on Marvel’s Ghost Rider was curiously lacking in either ghosts or riding, but the ABC drama is starting to make up for it. A new “found footage” teaser catches the rider speeding away from the scene, and already making a name for himself.
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has typically stuck with pared-down versions of its most outlandish comic characters, something the upcoming inclusion of Gabriel Luna’s Ghost Rider has built-in. As such, our first look at the new spirit of vengeance is neither spirit, nor vengeance-seeking, but sure looks like Gabriel Luna!
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.
