EW has an exclusive first look at Gabriel Luna as the flame-licked spirit of vengeance Ghost Rider, who will make his debut in the upcoming fourth season of the ABC super series.
“As always, we are going to put our own spin on the character,” executive producer Jed Whedon tells EW. “We are staying true to the comics in the places where we feel like it’s really important — we love the character’s family dynamic and the East L.A. kid in him.”
The introduction of Ghost Rider comes as the Marvel Cinematic Universe branches out into the strange and unexplained. “It started out with a guy building a suit using science, and then we met aliens that are the origin of the myths behind some of our gods, and this year Doctor Strange comes out,” Whedon says. “We’re opening it up even further to the world of things we don’t totally understand, or as Thor says, ‘Magic is science that we don’t understand.’ Well, we’re getting into some very, very fancy science.”
Luna is already one of my favorite TV actors since he was in one of my favorite shows of recent years that NO ONE ELSE HAS SEEN - Matador.
I will miss the classic Ghost Rider on the motorcycle but he can be brought back. The 'spirit' of the 'ghost rider' has existed for a long time and been in many different men. I like the car because it looks cool on fire and it's slick and modern.
