SDCC: Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Comic Con Panel Unveils Ghost Rider

More from San Diego Comic Con:  Below check out the latest from the Marvel Panel for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.  Marvel released clips including a blooper reel from season 3, screentests for their actors, a poster for next season, and a teaser for next season that highlights the addition of GHOST RIDER.  That’s right, the Robbie Reyes version of Ghost Rider will be introduced next season.  Continue reading below for more details.

Posters have been appearing in the San Diego area for the past month hyping the Agents of S.H.I.E.:.D. panel showing a flaming chain.  The online community was going crazy speculating “Could they be bringing in Ghost Rider”, “No way, his special effects would be too complicated for TV”, “It’s probably just Hellfire, an Inhuman who also uses a flaming chain.”  Wonder no more because Marvel confirmed that Ghost Rider will indeed be appearing next season and Jeph Loeb ensures that it will be their craziest season yet (courtesy of ComingSoon)

Season 4 will unquestionably be the series’ biggest, most ambitious story yet, and it all begins with the introduction of one of our greatest legacy characters in Ghost Rider,” said Executive Producer/Head of Marvel Television, Jeph Loeb. “When the Spirit of Vengeance rides into S.H.I.E.L.D., it’ll change everything.”

Gabriel Luna (Matador, Wicked City) will play the role of Robbie Reyes, the most recent incarnation of the character to grace the pages of Marvel comics. First appearing in 2014’s All-New Ghost Rider #1 from Felipe Smith and Tradd Moore, Robbie Reyes is a young mechanic living in Los Angeles possessed by the Spirit which he uses against the local gangs and to win street races. He also went up against a villain previously found in Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD, Mr. Hyde.

Screen Rant provided a rundown of where we find the storyline and our characters at heading into season 4.  Check out their summary below and then enjoy the blooper reel, screen test footage and character poster that were unveiled during the Comic Con panel.

While Marvel and S.H.I.E.L.D. fans are undoubtedly excited to see Ghost Rider join the cast in season 4, the show will also pick back up with its heroes. As teased in the last scene of the season 3 finale,Daisy is on the run from S.H.I.E.L.D. and using her Inhuman powers as a vigilante. Meanwhile, Coulson is on the hunt for Daisy – and he’s no longer the director of S.H.I.E.L.D. Additionally, this end sequence introduced viewers to LMDs, or Life Model Decoys, which will surely play a large role in season 4.
