The premiere of the upcoming Ghost Rider television show on Hulu may still be quite a bit off into the future. However, the series’ star (Gabriel Luna) is seizing the moment to go ahead and get fans pumped for the show. Why wait?
Fans have been hoping for a television show for a while. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Gabriel Luna teased a potential series back in 2016. Three years, later Ghost Rider enthusiasts are closer than ever to seeing it happen. Luna shared a picture on social media that is destined to get fans even more excited for the series to begin. Check it out below:
Gabriel Luna’s impressive Ghost Rider sketch is enough to warm the heart of any fan ready to see the highly-anticipated live-action series. It has it all! Including the signature flames emanating from Ghost Rider’s skull. I think it is a fantastic illustration. In the caption, Luna says that he is working on drawing more. Hopefully he will share future drawings too!
A couple of months ago, Marvel thrilled fans with news of a live-action Ghost Rider series on Hulu. They announced that it would star Gabriel Luna in the titular role. At first, it seemed Luna would directly reprise his role as Ghost Rider/Robbie Reyes. Luna played him during a run on ABC’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. in Season 4.
It turns out there is a twist. Gabriel Luna will be playing Ghost Rider and Robbie Reyes. However, the character’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. canon will reportedly not connect to the Hulu series. This will be a different take on things.
Despite having the same actor in the role, the character's stories will not be connected. Time will tell how exactly it all shakes out. It is an intriguing decision that should offer new possibilities.
The Hulu series is set to pick up with Robbie Reyes as he lives on the border of Texas and Mexico. He will apparently already have his demonic powers when the show starts. That could indicate the series may be skipping past his origin story entirely. As the story goes, Robbie Reyes flames on as Ghost Rider to seek vengeance for the innocent.
In Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s version of Robbie’s origin story, he and his brother Gabriel were caught in the crossfire of a hit intended to kill their uncle. The car they were in subsequently crashed. The wreck killed Robbie and paralyzed his brother.
That is when a different Ghost Rider showed up and gave the Spirit of Vengeance to Robbie. Thus, bringing him back to life, so he could protect Gabriel and get his revenge. Marvel’s Ghost Rider is expected to premiere at some point in 2020 on Hulu. Let summer’s television premieres haunt you in the meantime.
