Marvel's Ghost Rider, or simply Ghost Rider, is an unproduced American web television series created for Hulu by Ingrid Escajeda, based on the Marvel Comics antihero Robbie Reyes / Ghost Rider. It tells a standalone story within the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). The series was intended to be produced by ABC Signature Studios and Marvel Television, with Escajeda serving as showrunner.

Gabriel Luna was set to star as Reyes, reprising his role from the ABC series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Luna was first cast in that series in July 2016 after the rights to Ghost Rider returned to Marvel from Sony, who previously produced a Ghost Rider film series. Luna expressed interest in reprising his role for a spin-off soon after. Ghost Rider was officially announced with a series order at Hulu in May 2019, planned as the second series in Marvel Television's Adventure into Fear franchise, and was considered to be a standalone take on the character rather than a traditional spin-off from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. In September 2019, it was announced that the series was not going forward, due to creative differences.

Cast and characters[edit]

  • Gabriel Luna as Robbie Reyes / Ghost Rider:
    An antihero possessed by a demon.[1] Luna previously portrayed Reyes on the series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., but his appearance in this series is a "new iteration" of the character.[2]



During development on the fourth season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Marvel suggested that the series introduce Ghost Rider,[3] after the character's film rights had returned to Marvel from Sony in May 2013.[4] The Robbie Reyes version of the character was chosen over other versions from the comics due to his family values,[5] and to help the series distance itself from Sony's Ghost Rider films that starred Nicolas Cage as the Johnny Blaze version of the character.[6] Gabriel Luna was announced to be playing Reyes at the 2016 San Diego Comic-Con.[7] A month later, Marvel Television head Jeph Loeb said the character "could venture into other sections of the Marvel Cinematic Universe", depending on the audience's response to his appearance in S.H.I.E.L.D. Luna expressed interest in reprising his role outside of the series, adding that he "signed on the line to do all the work necessary".[8] That October, Luna said there had been "rumblings" about a spin-off for the character, but reiterated that it would depend on audience response.[9]

Hulu ordered Ghost Rider to series in May 2019, with Ingrid Escajeda set as showrunner and executive producer alongside Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s Paul Zbyszewski and Loeb, and Luna reprising his role.[1] Rather than being a traditional spin-off from S.H.I.E.L.D., Hulu described the series as a new story that "lives unto its own" but is about the same character.[10] The series was set to be a co-production between Marvel Television and ABC Signature Studios.[1] Escajeda was drawn to the series' conflicted characters and horror tone, and said that she would be targeting both existing fans of the property and general audiences with the series.[10] That September, Hulu chose not to move forward with the project due to creative differences.[11] Luna said this news was surprising and he had been "ready to rock on the new show", but said it was "the nature of this business" and that he had "the time of [his] life" playing the character already.[12]


Gabriel Luna was confirmed to be reprising his role of Robbie Reyes / Ghost Rider from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. when the series was ordered.[1]

Marvel Cinematic Universe tie-ins[edit]

Hulu and Marvel announced both Ghost Rider and the series Helstrom in May 2019, referring to them as the cornerstone of the "Spirits of Vengeance" and intending on them being interconnected in a similar fashion to Marvel's Netflix television series.[13][1] Marvel revealed that the two series would exist within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but would not crossover with the films or other television series of the franchise.[2] Loeb added that with the two series Hulu was moving into a new, "chilling" corner of the Marvel Universe.[13] In July 2019, Loeb confirmed that the new series would reference Reyes's role in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.[14] The next month, Loeb revealed that the fear-based series at Hulu were being collectively referred to as "Adventure into Fear".[15]
