Ghost Rider Might Still Appear on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
A few weeks back, Marvel's fan-base started getting very excited when San Diego's famous trolley cars were decked out with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D advertising that appeared to suggest Ghost Rider might be making an appearance on the show. Posted to the official Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Twitter account, the image of a trolley car wrapped with a flaming metal chain was accompanied by the caption "Get fired up".

That excitement was short-lived, though. Fans with slightly calmer heads soon pointed out that the chain was more likely to be a reference to Hellfire, the Inhuman who was introduced towards the end of last season.

A recent report from TVLine provides renewed hope for Ghost Rider fans by suggesting that a different iteration of the character could be about to make an appearance on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

The report claims that the show is in the process of casting for two latino actors to play a pair of brothers, one of whom is "the most dangerous person in the room," and while the other is "paralyzed in a wheelchair."

This description doesn't, of course, fit with the more popularized version of Ghost Rider, but it does sit perfectly with the 2013/14 version, Robbie Reyes, who had a wheelchair-bound brother named Gabriel. It's not much to go on, but with Daisy/Skye/Quake/Whatever You Want to Call Her last being seen looking like she was dressed for a night out at a biker bar, the timing might seem to fit.

After a couple of suspect movies, the rights to the Ghost Rider character reverted back to Marvel from Sony in 2013. Since then, Marvel has insisted that there are no plans to bring the character to the big screen. A trip to the small screen, though? That might just be on the cards....
