‘Ghost Rider:’ Gabriel Luna to Star in Marvel-Hulu Series

This will mark the second time that Luna has played Ghost Rider, previously appearing as the character in the ABC-Marvel series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. After Robbie and his brother, Gabe, were in a vehicle accident caused by local gang members, Reyes became the new Spirit of Vengeance. Those details being that Robbie Reyes is a motor vehicle enthusiast who ends up dying and is later revived to become Ghost Rider.

Got all that? Same actor (Gabriel Luna), same character (Robbie Reyes), but not the same version of the character Luna previously played (the one from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.). Reyes lives on the Texas/Mexico border and when he unleashes the Rider, Robbie brings vengeance for the innocents he encounters, but struggles to control the power he wields. Variety reported that this is a new iteration of the character, which means things that were relevant in his adventure with S.H.I.E.L.D. might either be retconned or the details of his story completely changed.

After the announcement, Luna returned to Twitter to express his excitement about donning Robbie's leather jacket once again.

The deal is for one more year with the option of another season, which could keep him at Porto until he is 40. Defending champion Porto trails Benfica by two points in the Portuguese league with two games left.

In addition to Ghost Rider, Hulu is also making a Marvel show called Helstrom.

Helstrom tells the story of Daimon and Ana Helstrom, who are the son and daughter of a mysterious and powerful serial killer. The siblings have a complicated dynamic as they track down "the terrorizing worst of humanity". "It's important to me to find a take that thrills existing fans as well as wider audiences and I believe we've done just that", said Executive Producer and Showrunner, Ingrid Escajeda. This series looks to be a version of the Daimon Hellstrom character who also goes by the Son of Satan, or Hellstorm, in the comics. Both live-action shows are slated to debut on Hulu in 2020.
