It’s debatable which Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. outing relied the most on visual effects, though certainly Season 4 pushed limits with its flame-skulled, life-modeling and reality-warped twists. See for yourself in a VFX reel for the fourth season, showcasing how some of the biggest moments came to life.
He’s back! Now that Gabriel Luna’s Ghost Rider has stepped back through to Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. finale, next week will bring us all-out Ghost Rider-LMD war at “World’s End.” See for yourself in the first trailer for Season 4’s final hour!
Marvel’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ finally makes “The Return” from its Hydra-fied reality, but is Aida’s endgame enough to justify Season 4’s rushed final pod? And what of that Ghostly return? Find out in our full review of ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ Season 4’s penultimate outing!
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. still has a week to go before crossing the Season 4 finish line (and hopefully longer beyond that), but there’s nothing like a Hell Charger to win the race.

All our skulls heat up with word that Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Ghost Rider would reignite in time for Season 4’s finale, but the question remains how Gabriel Luna’s Robbie Reyes reenters the scene.

Well, ABC dug into the budget for one last ride, as a cryptic new tweet confirms that Robbie Reyes and his flaming skull will back before we know it.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe had its Big Bang in 2008, with Iron Man and Robert Downey Jr.’s debut as the incorrigible Tony Stark. In casting a charismatic leading man, feeding him some genuinely fresh one-liners, and stitching them together with a few impressive action setpieces, producer and MCU mastermind Kevin Feige had struck gold. He then went to work methodically stripping the mine clean, roping Chrises Evans and Hemsworth into multi-film contracts and watching as the billions rolled in. He devised a winning formula of easy screen-idol mass appeal and an eminently palatable house visual style to go along with it, a method still yielding massive success to this day. (Guardians of the Galaxy 2, Thor 3, and Spider-Man Who Even Knows What Number, coming to theaters in 2017!) And it all began with R.D.J. as an irresistible new breed of defender, the sort of guy you either want to be or be with. One year earlier, Marvel’s idea of a blockbuster superhero was Nicolas Cage as a flaming CGI skeleton clad in S&M biker gear.
