That’s right True Believers! Ghost Rider is making his way over to the successful Marvel Cinematic Universe spin off show Agents of SHIELD this fall! This is especially exciting to see as we dive into the MCU more and more, the occult appears to have a heavy influence than anyone else thought possible. You can see the trend as we get closer to the release of Doctor Strange this November! First we saw some of the mystical realm with Daredevil and now with Agents of SHIELD.
Johnny Blaze or Danny Ketch fans will have to wait a bit longer to see their favorite incarnation of Ghost Rider in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The version we will see is named Robbie Reyes and is played by Gabriel Luna (Prison Break, True Detective) and instead of mounting the usual motorcycle he drives an American made muscle car to dish our vengeance to those who deserve it (I hope there’s a Punisher team up in the future!)
In the comics, Robbie Reyes is a young mechanic living in a gang infested Los Angeles who street races to earn enough money to move to a safer neighborhood. During his last race he uses a 1969 Dodge Charger RT that is possessed by the ghost of his uncle, Elias Morrow, who is a devil worshipping serial killer. Obviously, Robbie’s body is not inhabited by a true “Spirit of Vengeance” like his predecessors. Robbie still has the usual chains and knives and flaming skull powers as the original Ghost Riders, but can also bond with the 69′ Charger and merge his form with that of the cars. It’s kind of like Transformers but more demonic. The car itself also has a lot of cool abilities, like the trunk can act as a portal to anywhere. One of the major downsides to the newest Ghost Rider is that if he gets too angry or tends to get into a more negative mood, his evil uncle can take complete control of his body.
Are you guys excited for a new Ghost Rider? Or is it too Fast and Furious for you?
