According to Variety, Gabriel Luna will return to once again take on the role of Ghost Rider. However, the character will reportedly not be connected to the incarnation from Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Luna's return was hinted at yesterday when he tweeted "Chains a' rattlin'."
That Luna is playing a Ghost Rider not tied to the one introduced on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is an interesting idea that could give legs to many Marvel heroes down the line. After all, in the comics, it's hardly uncommon for characters to pop up with little mention of their past adventures or storylines, and this is similar, albeit still slightly unique for television audiences.
This will be the fourth time that Ghost Rider has appeared in live-action, following two movies with Nicolas Cage portraying Johnny Blaze and the Luna portrayal of Reyes on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
There's still no word on who will portray Daimon Hellstrom in his series, although the original description indicates he is someone who teams with his sister Ana to "track down the terrorizing worst of humanity." Hellstrom is best known for his days working with the Defenders, which is a very different group than the one appearing on the now-defunct Netflix series. There is also no news on whether the two characters will crossover.
Marvel's Ghost Rider will air on Hulu. as the streaming service will reportedly work to produce the more adult-oriented Marvel adaptations, while Disney+ will take on the mainstream efforts.
