“When the Spirit of Vengeance rides into S.H.I.E.L.D., it’ll change everything,” might be one of the most exciting statements ever issued by Marvel TV boss Jeph Loeb. We chatted with Loeb earlier today about Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 4 and while at the time, he remained tight-lipped, we knew all of the speculation about Ghost Rider riding alongside Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) was true because his vehicle is literally parked – draped over with a black tarp – at the Marvel booth of San Diego Comic-Con.
Stay tuned for that unveil shortly!
Gabriel Luna (True Detective, Matador) “will roar into the lives” of Agent Coulson and the team, as Robbie Reyes the unstoppable Ghost Rider, which was revealed today at Comic-Con International in San Diego.
A photo of Luna is below, released by Marvel, and confirming early reports we shared that he’d indeed be playing the Reyes version of Ghost Rider. There’s also a brief fiery skull teaser trailer and the full season 4 logo below… Our apologies to fans of the Nicolas Cage adaptation of the original Johnny Blaze Ghost Rider.
Executive Producer/Head of Marvel Television, Jeph Loeb:
“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… When the Spirit of Vengeance rides into S.H.I.E.L.D., it’ll change everything.”
“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” is executive produced and co-created by Joss Whedon (“Marvel’s The Avengers,” “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”) and Jed Whedon & Maurissa Tancharoen, (“Dollhouse,” “Dr.Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog”). Jeffrey Bell (“Angel,” “Alias”) and Jeph Loeb (“Marvel’s Jessica Jones,” “Marvel’s Daredevil”) also serve as Executive Producers. “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” is produced by Marvel Television and ABC Studios.
And here are some fun tweets, first of what’s coming shortly from the show floor – a major vehicular reveal:
And this from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. writer Drew Greenberg who also confirmed what we knew was coming:
