A panel held at San Diego Comic-Con confirmed what began as a rumor a few weeks ago. Ghost rider is officially confirmed for Season 4 of Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD.
Many have speculated that it is Hellfire that the teaser referred to, but apparently it was Ghost Rider all along. The character itself will follow Robbie Reyes’ version from the comics, and will be portrayed by Gabriel Luna (True Detective).
Jeph Loeb, TV Head at Marvel, said that this season will have the “biggest, most ambitious story yet”.
Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD stars Clark Gregg as Director Phil Coulson, Ming-Na Wen as Agent Melinda May, Brett Dalton as Grant Ward, Chloe Bennet as Agent Daisy Johnson, Iain De Caestecker as Agent Leo Fitz, Elizabeth Henstridge as Agent Jemma Simmons, Nick Blood as Agent Lance Hunter, Adrianne Palicki as Agent Bobbi Morse, Henry Simmons as Agent Alphonso “Mack” MacKenzie and Luke Mitchell as Lincoln Campbell.
Agents of SHIELD’s Season 4 will premiere September 20 at 10:00 pm ET on ABC.
