Ghost Rider was just confirmed for season four of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. during a the show's official panel at San Diego Comic-Con.
After much speculation around the promotional images of flaming chains, the secret is finally out. After it sent the 4,000 strong crowd into a frenzy in San Diego, the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. twitter account shared the image of the S.H.I.E.L.D. logo engulfed in flames.
As was previously thought, Marvel confirmed that it will be the Robbie Reyes version of Ghost Rider, and not the more popularized Johnny Blaze. The new character will be played by Gabriel Luna, an actor best known for his work on the show, Wicked City.
