After two failed attempts at bringing the character to life, Marvel brought Ghost Rider to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in their series, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Many fans praised the series’ portrayal of Ghost Rider, who is Robbie Reyes in this iteration and is played wonderfully by actor Gabriel Luna. The use of the special effects in bringing Ghost Rider to life were also praised, especially given that this was on a network television series.
While at New York Comic-Con, both Chloe Bennet and Clark Gregg speculated on whether or not we would be seeing Luna return to play Ghost Rider. Their answers were quite interesting, to say the least:
“[Gabriel] did such a good job. So maybe he will come back. Maybe. We legitimately don’t know, is the fun part about that,” said Bennet.
“Yeah, but I’d be surprised if you didn’t see him back on our show at some point,” said Gregg.
Although fans should not expect to see Ghost Rider return too early on, him riding back onto the show could happen later on in the season. Gregg explained:
“Some of the story that we’re telling at the beginning of this year, sort of precludes the possibility of Ghost Rider being around so far. But he was a fan favorite and he was a cast favorite.”
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. stars Clark Gregg as Agent Phil Coulson, Ming-Na Wen as Agent Melinda May, Chloe Bennet as Daisy Johnson, Iain De Caestecker as Agent Leo Fitz, Elizabeth Henstridge as Agent Jemma Simmons, and Henry Simmons as Agent Alphonso “Mack” MacKenzie.
In the aftermath of their journey to another planet, Director Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) and the rest of the team were driven more than ever to put an end to the Hydra organization. Little did they know that they were up against the deadliest threat they’ve ever faced – an extremely powerful Inhuman, Hive, who was transported back from Maveth in the body of their worst enemy, Grant Ward. The team was able to thwart and kill Hive and take down Hydra, but they are all still mourning the death of fellow agent and Inhuman, Lincoln Campbell.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 5 will now air on Friday, December 1, 2017 with a special 2-hour premiere on ABC. Are you excited?
7 Reasons Why ‘Marvel’s Inhumans’ Failed
The premiere episodes of the ABC Marvel’s Inhumans has already aired with good ratings for ABC, stronger than the Season 4 of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and the final season of Agent Carter but this does not mean it is a success.
Marvel’s Inhumans has been dragged through the mud with critics, many lambasting it as the worst thing Marvel Studios has ever been involved with, and a serious low-point for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I have seen these episodes of Inhumans and I can honestly say that ever criticism is apt. It’s even more apt to say that Inhumans has failed as a series because of its incredibly low approval for its pilot episodes. So how did it happen? Who’s to blame? What reasons can be found to why something that Marvel Studios were trying to do for years has now been reviled by many?
