Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. wasted little time introducing us to a fully-formed Ghost Rider, further evolving effects we’d seen through two prior movies. Now, Season 4 goes behind the scenes to show us the mo-cap creation of Gabriel Luna’s fiery Spirit of Vengeance, LED hood and all.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Considering how wide the gulf between Marvel’s TV and movie branches has become, it’s surprising that neither Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. nor Netflix’s Defenders have attempted TV solidarity with an earnest crossover. It’s not as easy as it sounds, but there’s mounting evidence that could point toward Jon Bernthal punishing ABC’s Agents sometime in the near future.
Marvel’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ tangles with Ghost Rider, taking full advantage of a new timeslot for its darkest, most intriguing premiere yet. Our full review, plus answers to a robotic new mystery from tonight's premiere, “The Ghost”!
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has made steadily smaller connection with the Marvel films, from sending in helicarriers to quick Sokovia meetings, and Doctor Strange will continue the trend. S.H.I.E.L.D. producers explain that while Coulson’s team won’t be palling around the Sanctum Sanctorum anytime soon, Season 4 will explore “some of those same ideas” as the magical Doctor Strange.
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will return for Season 4 as soon as next week, kicking off both the hunt for a wayward Daisy Johnson, and the introduction of an all-new Ghost Rider. The first clip from Season 4 cools its treads on the Spirit of Vengeance (for now), but still shakes things up with a dangerous pursuit of “Quake.”
Clear as Marvel made its new Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Ghost Rider in the recent photo, we could have used a better look at the actual flaming skull. Well, say no more, fam, as the newest Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 4 poster gets up close and personal with your new Ghost Rider … ’s floating head.
Marvel TV brought a heavy bag of goodies to Comic-Con 2016, including first looks at Netflix’s Iron Fist and FX X-Men series Legion, but will New York do one better? We’ll find out, as both series are due for panel treatment at New York Comic-Con 2016, along with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 4, and some new goodies from Marvel Animation.
We thought perhaps Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. might wait an episode or two to reveal Ghost Rider in all his fiery glory, but who needs patience in Season 4? The first official photo of Robbie Reyes transformed into the Spirit of Vengeance is here, and it’s … uh, it’s fine.
Well, if we were hoping the addition of Ghost Rider and a 10:00 P.M. time slot would take Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. a little darker, the first Season 4 footage will really light your fire. Ghost Rider is out for vengeance in the first footage, even attaching himself as a subtitle for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 4.
It could be some time yet before any real Ghost Rider finally speeds through Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 4, but with a September 20 premiere fast approaching, we can barely keep from catching fire. See for yourself, as the first Season 4 premiere photos arrive with May, Mack, a pre-ghosting Ghost Rider and more.
