For those who didn't know, Ghost Rider is going to be on Agents of SHIELD. But rather than it being Johnny Blaze, it is the much newer character named Robbie Reyes. Showrunners Maurissa Tancharoen and Jed Whedon, says that he represents an incarnation of Ghost Rider that better suits Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. than the original.
Since Doctor Strange will be opening up “a different side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe” with magic, Ghost Rider “plays in that world. It’s not exactly the spy world we live in, but we feel like, with [magic] entering the MCU, this is us sort of dipping our toe into that world as we open things up,” said Whedon.
Tancharoen says that the acceptance of the supernatural will not be immediate with the team “basically be trying to science [explanations for what Reyes does], 'Why?'”
Gabriel Luna is playing Robbie Reyes (whose look was partially inspired by Zayn Malik).
Agents of SHIELD comes back September 20.
Marvel also released this weird teaser.
