Things are heating up in the latest promo for “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” which offers detailed glimpses of Ghost Rider and his fiery muscle car.
In the 15-second teaser for Tuesday’s Season 4 premiere, we see only close-ups of the new Spirit of Vengeance’s black-and-white jacket and Dodge Charger as we hear actor Gabriel Luna say, “Watch out: Vengeance is coming.”
In a recent interview with Den of Geek, Luna kept plot details close to his chest, but expressed his excitement to be playing Robbie Reyes. “I’m beyond excited to be one of the first if not the first … but I believe I’m the first Mexican-American superhero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in terms of the well-known titles,” he said. “And I’m honored. I will not take it lightly.”
Fans were initially surprised by the decision to use Reyes, the newest version of Marvel’s Ghost Rider, as opposed to the more famous iteration ,stunt motorcyclist Johnny Blaze. However, Head of Marvel Television Jeph Loeb explained how the character’s protective relationship with his brother ties into the themes of the show.
“We hit on Ghost Rider and … and in particular with the character of Robbie Reyes, because our show really at the end of the day hinges on the idea of family and how that works in the world,” he said.
“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” returns Tuesday at 10 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
