Marvel's planned Ghost Rider series, which was slated to stream on Hulu, is no longer moving forward.

According to Deadline, the team behind the series came to a creative stalemate with Hulu, prompting the streaming service to ax the project altogether.

In May, Hulu announced Marvel's Ghost Rider and Marvel's Helstrom would join Marvel's Runaways and a planned adult-oriented animated slate featuring Marvel’s M.O.D.O.K, Marvel’s Hit-Monkey, Marvel’s Tigra & Dazzler Show and Marvel’s Howard The Duck on Hulu. At this time, it appears Ghost Rider is the only one of these projects that's been canceled.

Ghost Rider would have seen Gabriel Luna reprise his role as Robbie Reyes from Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., although this new incarnation would exist in a separate continuity. He was described by Hulu as "a quintessential antihero, consumed by hellfire and supernaturally bound to a demon." Living on the Texas/Mexico border, Robbie would bring vengeance for the innocents he encounters as Ghost Rider, "but struggles to control the power he wields."
