The moment Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. started hinting Season 4 might introduce Ghost Rider, fans were quick to remember the comic connection between Robbie Reyes and Daisy Johnson’s father. Some even hoped Season 4 might return Kyle MacLachlan’s Cal as such, but producers now confirm Ghost Rider’s origin has been tweaked.
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. already gave itself a burst of comic energy with Season 4's addition of Ghost Rider, and now another comic hero is confirmed for the series. Following a few hints in last week’s “Meet the New Boss,” S.H.I.E.L.D. confirms an all-American identity for Coulson’s new Director, “Jeffrey.”
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. wasted little time introducing us to a fully-formed Ghost Rider, further evolving effects we’d seen through two prior movies. Now, Season 4 goes behind the scenes to show us the mo-cap creation of Gabriel Luna’s fiery Spirit of Vengeance, LED hood and all.
Considering how wide the gulf between Marvel’s TV and movie branches has become, it’s surprising that neither Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. nor Netflix’s Defenders have attempted TV solidarity with an earnest crossover. It’s not as easy as it sounds, but there’s mounting evidence that could point toward Jon Bernthal punishing ABC’s Agents sometime in the near future.
Marvel’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ tangles with Ghost Rider, taking full advantage of a new timeslot for its darkest, most intriguing premiere yet. Our full review, plus answers to a robotic new mystery from tonight's premiere, “The Ghost”!
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has made steadily smaller connection with the Marvel films, from sending in helicarriers to quick Sokovia meetings, and Doctor Strange will continue the trend. S.H.I.E.L.D. producers explain that while Coulson’s team won’t be palling around the Sanctum Sanctorum anytime soon, Season 4 will explore “some of those same ideas” as the magical Doctor Strange.
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will return for Season 4 as soon as next week, kicking off both the hunt for a wayward Daisy Johnson, and the introduction of an all-new Ghost Rider. The first clip from Season 4 cools its treads on the Spirit of Vengeance (for now), but still shakes things up with a dangerous pursuit of “Quake.”
Clear as Marvel made its new Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Ghost Rider in the recent photo, we could have used a better look at the actual flaming skull. Well, say no more, fam, as the newest Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 4 poster gets up close and personal with your new Ghost Rider … ’s floating head.
