ABC and Marvel Television have released our first look at Ghost Rider (Courtesy of Yahoo!) from the upcoming fourth season of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D in full Spirit of Vengeance mode! Gabriel Luna is set to bring Robbie Reyes to life this fall, check out the image and teaser below!
Ghost Rider “opens up a whole different kind of storytelling for us,”S.H.I.E.L.D. executive producer Jeff Bell tells Yahoo! Not only is it the most well-known Marvel character they’ve ever had on the show, but it’s someone whose “origins present themselves as supernatural.” That’s not just a leap for the show, which exists mostly in a world of “spies and agents”; which is new territory for both Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D and the MCU.
In light of the Sokovia Accords, and with Hydra obliterated, S.H.I.E.L.D. has been legitimatized again and no longer needs to operate in the shadows. Since the world presumes that Coulson is dead, the organization needed a new Director to be the face of the organization. Coulson finds himself back in the role as an agent and teamed with Mack, and together they are tasked with tracking down and confirming the presence of Enhanced people, aka Inhumans. Agent May is tasked with training specialist strike teams, and Fitz and Simmons have taken a big step forward in their relationship.
Agents of SHIELD Season 4 premieres Tuesday, Sept. 20 at 10 p.m. on ABC.
