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.

The Punisher remains the most elusive of all Marvel’s Netflix series, as-yet unscheduled and unconfirmed to take any part in The Defenders crossover. Still, Frank Castle’s solo series may yet be moving forward, casting Chronicles of Narnia alum Ben Barnes a mysterious role.
Just last week, Joe and Anthony Russo shared a behind-the-scenes photo of Josh Brolin rehearsing for Avengers: Infinity War, giving us our first look (sort of) at Thanos’ return. But Jon Watts isn’t about to let the Russos get away with stealing the superhero spotlight — in response, the director of Spider-Man: Homecoming has offered up a new set video that shows off Tom Holland’s breakdancing skills, complete with mo-cap Spidey action.
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’s tough to overstate the influence that superheroes can have on kids. While comics have evolved to a place where mature themes are regularly explored, pre-teens are more likely to see the simple transformations of the characters from outsider to superhero. Steve Rogers was a scrawny youth who became one of the all-time good guys; Peter Parker was a science nerd who now protects the streets of Manhattan. The things that made these characters stand outside their peers are ultimately what allowed them to become some of the most recognizable heroes of page and screen. There’s real power in being able to tell our kids that what makes them different also makes them special.
Are you sitting down? You might want to be seated when you read this. You should also be warned of potential spoilers for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, so if you’re the sort of Marvel fan who likes to go in knowing as little as possible (how do you live without the internet??), you might not want to read on. But if you’re curious to learn more about Baby Groot, James Gunn has revealed something very interesting, and a little sad?
Doctor Strange is set to hit U.S. theaters in November as Marvel’s last blockbuster superhero outing for 2016. Today, Marvel has released a new photo of the magic man in his Sanctum Sanctorum, as well as the full run time for the movie and a new, sooner release date (which will only be exciting if you’re in the U.K.).
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.
We could watch Luke Cage shrug off bullets all day (come September 30, we will!), but at least one other striking visual from early trailers has fans pumping (or breaking) their fists. Watch Cage take on even more thugs in a new clip from the third Defender series!
It wasn’t long after Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 4 began casting a young mechanic and his disabled brother that fans put together Robbie Reyes’ Ghost Rider joining the series. Now, just weeks before Season 4 debuts, our first synopsis for September premiere “The Ghost” reveals a Fear The Walking Dead star in a major Ghost-adjacent role.
