Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has its fans and non-fans. Some people love the interconnectedness of the show with the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), as there have been milestone episodes that coincided with the big MCU films. Other fans grow weary of the Inhumans storyline as we are a ways away from an Inhumans movie. One thing we can all agree on, this season’s introduction of Ghost Rider has been fantastic. Instead of giving us old school Johnny Blaze, we have the latest iteration of the iconic character, Roberto “Robbie” Reyes. The show has managed to do his character justice (as opposed to the two other films made for Johnny Blaze starring Nicolas Cage). Since he’s so prominent on the show, fans have wondered if we would possibly see him in either his own movie or TV show. Well, it looks like we might have an answer.
Ghost Rider himself, actor Gabriel Luna has said that his character should get his own series, and now it turns out that Marvel is flirting with that idea. Lina was recently asked if he would rather have a Ghost Rider film or TV show.
“I don’t have a preference. People talk about ‘Ah man he’d be great as a feature,’ which is [an] idea too… It could be in the cinema, it could live on Netflix, whatever it is.”
Marvel is currently discussing the possibility of a spin-off series on ABC, Netflix, or even a possible movie. Luna also weighs in on where his character might end up.
“It’s been talked about, there’s definitely deals in place for that potential. But I just take it one day at a time. I have so much fun now I just want to make sure I get these episodes right. If they throw more episodes on my plate, I will do my best to do well with those stories as well.”
With the introduction of the original Ghost Rider on the latest episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., it might not be a bad idea to make a “Spirits of Vengeance” TV series. This would probably have to be on Netflix, and Ghost Rider storylines tend to be a little bit on the darker side. No matter where it lands, the character’s introduction has already earned him new fans, and the show could be successful.
