First look at Gabriel Luna’s Ghost Rider in ‘Agents of SHIELD’ season 4

Marvel Studios’ early TV series has been upstaged by the dramatic series on Netflix. All that said, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is getting an extra boost this season with the arrival of Ghost Rider.

Now fans get their first look at the Rider, debuting during season 4 of the ABC series in an episode aptly named “The Ghost”, and indeed this first look image reveals newcomer Gabriel Luna in the new Ghost Rider costume.

Instead, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is pulling from the recent Marvel NOW! comic, which repositions Ghost Rider as Robbie Reyes, who drives a classic muscle car and lives in East Los Angeles.

Collider notes that “Marvel can not only avoid comparisons to the two feature film adaptations, but also inject the show with a Latino superhero. While Blaze earned his powers after accidentally summoning Mephisto, in the comics, Reyes becomes Ghost Rider when he is gunned down while trying to retrieve pills that cause physical transformation, subsequently getting revived ablaze as the Ghost Rider.”

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns on ABC on Tuesday, September 20th at 10pm ET.
