Ghost Rider Star Gabriel Luna Reacts to Hulu Series' Cancellation


Earlier this week, it was revealed that Hulu has opted not to move forward its planned Ghost Rider series, preemptively canceling the supernatural Marvel show. In the wake of this news, Gabriel Luna -- who was set to star as the Spirit of Vengeance, reprising his role as Robbie Reyes from ABC's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. -- has now issued a heartfelt thank you to everyone who has been along for the ride.

"To everyone who loves Robbie and Ghost Rider, thank you," Luna wrote on Instagram. "I've had the time of my life playing those two guys and I was ready to rock on the new show. The news is surprising, but I've always known that the nature of this business is that until you're there, on the day, doing the thing it could still go away. Even then, the next day on the job ain't guaranteed."

He continued, "Thanks to [Executive Vice President of Marvel Television Jeph Loeb], Marvel, [Robbie Reyes co-creator Felipe Smith] and everyone who helped bring Robbie to life on the page and the screen." Luna's statement is accompanied by a Marvel Comics panel of Robbie Reyes' Ghost Rider, in which he is giving the thumbs up.

Despite Ghost Rider no longer being in development (at least, not in its current form), Luna is certainly keeping busy. The actor slated to appear as Rev-9 in director Tim Miller's upcoming Terminator sequel.

"We'll be bringing Terminator: Dark Fate to theaters in just over a month!" Luna wrote. "Hope to see everyone there when it opens on the Day of the Dead, Nov. 1!"
