Ghost Rider Rumored To Join Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D

At the end of season 3, we saw a glimpse into the future of the world of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Daisy/Skye, portrayed by Chloe Bennett, goes rogue form the organization. She goes around helping loved ones of victims that were unintentionally involved in the disputes between the spy organization and its enemies. After a picture of enflamed chains showed up at a Comic-Con in San Diego last month, most fans of the show thought it was referring to Hellfire, the Inhuman introduced in the second half the third season. Considering Daisy is a focal point of season 4, Hellfire does have a pretty withstanding history with the Inhuman herself. Ghost Rider wasn’t even an option to consider coming from a fan’s viewpoint since he is a pretty important character in the Marvel universe, regardless of where he’s portrayed (TV, Movies, Netflix, etc). While there have been rumors of the flaming biker coming back to the Marvel universe in one form or another, most people expected him to have his own show on streaming services like Netflix. Considering he’s had two movies in the past (played by Nicholas Cage) that didn’t go over so well with fans, getting his shot at redemption on Netflix seemed like a perfect oppurtunity to re-emerge. That may not be the case anymore, according to this new casting notice that comicbook.com recently obtained. In the casting notice, it requests two Latino brothers, one being “the most dangerous person in the room” and the other being handicapped in a wheelchair. Fans of the Rider will quickly recognize the Reyes brothers, who are a staple in the comic book world of Ghost Rider. While that may not be much to go on, consider this: the show has requested to be pushed back an hour (to 10 PM) to allow for edgier tones throughout the show. Johnny Blaze isn’t exactly the kid-friendly anti-hero you’d like to be showing the younger ones. Keep your fingers crossed, comic book fans!
