Marvelís Ghost Rider coming to Hulu

The Runaways are getting a hot-headed Marvel friend over on Hulu.

Hulu ó which is 60-percent owned by Disney ó announced on Wednesday that it is expanding its partnership with Marvel Television by ordering two new series: Marvelís Ghost Rider and Marvelís Helstrom, both on track for 2020 premieres.

Ghost Rider, here in the form of Robbie Reyes, is a quintessential antihero, consumed by hellfire and supernaturally bound to a demon. Robbie lives on the Texas/Mexico border and when he unleashes the Rider, Robbie brings vengeance for the innocents he encounters, but struggles to control the power he wields. A version of the character was played by Gabriel Luna during Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 4.

Marvelís Ghost Rider will be executive-produced by Ingrid Escajeda (Justified), who will serve as showrunner, Paul Zbyszewski (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) and Marvel TV chief Jeph Loeb.

Yup.

Gabriel Luna is once again suiting up as Marvel’s Ghost Rider, but this time for Hulu.

Variety has learned exclusively that Luna will star in the recently announced Hulu live-action series based on the comic book character. This will mark the second time that Luna has played Ghost Rider, previously appearing as the character in the ABC-Marvel series “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” However, sources stress that this will be a completely new iteration of the character in no way connected to the “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” storyline.

In addition to his time on “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D,” Luna’s other television credits include “True Detective,” “Wicked City,” and “Matador.” On the feature side, he is set to appear in the upcoming “Terminator: Dark Fate” opposite Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton. He has previously appeared in films like “Bernie,” “Freehold,” and “Balls Out.”

I wouldn't think so...

That's kind of sad, I thought that Gabriel did a decent job of playing the character.

Well it doesn't say he's not so.

Re: Marvelís Ghost Rider coming to Hulu

So Luna is playing him, but it's not connected in any way to the version of the character that he played on AoS? That's not confusing at all.

Iím guessing that it will just take the character in a whole new direction and wonít be beholden to anything that came before it in prior storylines.

Re: Marvelís Ghost Rider coming to Hulu

I hope that Cage comes in at some point and along with Helstrom, they can do a Spirits of Vengeance story.

Too bad they can't do a Midnight Sons team up since Werewolf By Night (I assume) and Morbius are Sony licensed.

I don't recall Werewolf by Night having any real connection to Spider-man (unlike Morbius, who absolutely does). Perhaps you were thinking of Man-wolf?

Meh. I wasn't all that enamored with the AoS character. I'll probably give it a shot, though.

Ah yes, Man-Wolf was Jameson.

No. Ghost Rider can be a more mature show, something they wouldn't necessarily show on Disney+. Marvel owns nearly all of Hulu (60% now, with more headed their way according to reports), so it's essentially a 2nd service for them to put edgier fare on.

Re: Marvelís Ghost Rider coming to Hulu

I always confuse Ghost Rider with Drive Angry, which probably means: Amber Heard > Eva Mendes

Cool. Never saw the second Ghost Rider movie but I read the comics as a kid. I always liked the character.

The character and actor on AoS were great, a definite highlight for that season.
