Ghost Rider arrives on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

I am a huge Ghost Rider fan and I was very excited when I heard that Marvel got the rights back and all us fans agreed to not discuss those two movies that shall not be mentioned. Then I hear that Marvel has officially announced that Ghost Rider will be joining the cast of Marvel's Agents of SHIELD.  Gabriel Luna will star as the hell-bound hero, Robbie Reyes. I am more attached the the Danny Ketch version but I will take any version because Ghost Rider is awesome!

Background Info from - Created by Felipe Smith and Tradd Moore, Reyes debuted in the 2014 Marvel Now! All-New Ghost Rider series. The Mexican-American teen was gifted the power of Hellfire after he was tragically gunned down during a street race where he was attempting to win money to move him and his younger, disabled brother out of their seedy neighborhood. However, Reyes was revived by a spirited named Eli who revived Reyes (complete with hellish powers!) in exchange for the teen’s help in avenging Eli’s death.

In the comics, the character drove a 69' Dodge Charger, and it appears as if that will also be the case in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. The reaction to Ghost Rider being used in the series has been pretty mixed so far, bt chances are that his appearance here doesn't close the door on the classic Johnny Blaze or Danny Ketch versions showing up elsewhere. Of course, it does seem like the show killed Inhumans... (

Fangirl Thoughts: Yay! I will admit near the end of last season I just could not hang in there with the episodes but like the phoenix this show continues to rise from the ashes and draws me back in. I will be watching and waiting for my favorite comic book character to make his appearance.
