Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s Ghost Rider Car Unveiled by Cast

Marvel Comics - Robbie Reyes Ghost Rider Car

There's been a lot of speculation in the past several weeks about whether Ghost Rider (and specifically, the Robbie Reyes "All-New Ghost Rider" variant) would appear in the fourth season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. when it returns this fall. Some believed he would, while others argued that the fiery chains teased weeks ago were a reference to Hellfire (a character who has already appeared on the show as an Inhuman).

The debate is now over, however; Robbie Reyes and Ghost Rider are confirmed for season 4. Not only that, but Marvel had his car on hand at Comic-Con to give fans a good first look at what the All-New Ghost Rider will be driving on the show.

We previously discussed why the "All-New" version of the character would be a good fit for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., with one of the reasons given being that his character would be easier to do with practical effects. Instead of having a flaming skull and riding a motorcycle with flaming wheels, Reyes' Ghost Rider wears a racing helmet shaped like a skull and drives a car that emits flames and smoke. Yes, there's still going to be some CGI involved, but Hollywood has a lot of experience adding practical flame effects to cars.

As you can see, the look of Reyes' car holds pretty close to the comics; this is another advantage of having the All-New variant of the character on the show, since it's not exactly a stretch to mimic the look of a sleek black car. The car will obviously look different on TV than it does in these pictures, but even without any tweaks or special effects it's still an attention-grabbing vehicle. Robbie Reyes is going to ride in style.
