Gabriel Luna addressed his future as Ghost Rider in the MCU after the cancellation of the character’s Hulu series.
The fourth season of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D introduced viewers to the Gabriel Luna’s Robbie Reyes, the alter-ego of the MCU’s Ghost Rider. While previous attempts to adapt Ghost Rider on-screen were derided, Gabriel Luna’s incarnation of the character was well-received and Marvel Television would later announce the development of a new live-action series centered on the anti-hero with Hulu.
However, Gabriel Luna’s return as Ghost Rider was put on hold after Hulu opted to pass on the series over reported creative differences with the show’s creative team. During an interview with ComicBook.com, Gabriel Luna noted that while he’s glad a generation of fans will now consider Robbie Reyes as Ghost Rider and he hasn’t closed the door or returning, he also isn’t holding out hope on the show’s future:
“I was gearing up for Ghost Rider for some time, a few years now, just on hold, waiting. So I guess there’s not much hope holding out. I think it’s mainly, I know maybe there’s still couple of pages that are … the binding of the book is not really closed. But for me, personally, I think that, you leave it where it was. We put our heart into it and I’m really happy because I think a lot of people, I’m happy that there’s a whole generation of young people, [they know] Ghost Rider is Robbie Reyes. And I think that won’t change, whether we do another show or not. I think that that’s something that’ll always make me very proud. So you just leave that where it is. I’m really excited to see what the future holds and what we’re working on now and see what happens.”
