Check Out Ghost Rider's Sweet New Promo for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D
Oh, snap—the new season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is almost here, and Ghost Rider continues to steal the spotlight. If you don't already know, this Ghost Rider has a preference for muscle cars rather than motorcycles (like a hellbound version of Drive), and the newest promo video released by Marvel shows off his distinctive driving gloves and fancy new ride, inspired by the '69 Dodge Charger from the comics:



This All-New version of Ghost Rider, named Robbie Reyes, is played by Gabriel Luna (True Detective), but his role in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D still has some mystery to it—how he meets up with the team has been hinted at in a sneak peak, but questions linger over whether he's going to be a threat to the organization rather than just a new recruit. It makes sense considering the Ghost Rider's usual M.O.: find evildoers, deliver some hellfire street-justice, and leave the body on the curb. It will be most interesting to see what Luna does with the character and how his interactions with other cast members change the dynamic of the show—when you spend this much time building up to a new character, it's kind of expected that they're going to cause a major shake-up.



It'll also be fun to see a new chapter in Ghost Rider's on-screen life, one that washes away the somewhat bizarre, comical Nicholas Cage version. Like other Hell-themed heroes (Spawn, looking at you), Ghost Rider rides the line between being deadly serious and fun in a badass, action-packed way. As recent DC movies have shown, all dark and no fun makes for some boring melodrama, so S.H.I.E.L.D. has to play their cards right on this one.  

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 4 premieres Tuesday, September 20 @10pm on ABC.
