Yesterday, Marvel revealed that Hulu will be getting a live-action Marvel’s Ghost Rider and Marvel’s Helstorm in 2020. The actor who played Ghost Rider in Marvel’s Agents of Shield, Gabriel Luna will be playing Ghost Rider on the Hulu show.
Ghost Rider was so well received when he was in Marvel’s Agents of Sheid that he got his own show on Hulu. It will focus on the Robbie Reyes version of Ghost Rider but this will be a totally new iteration of the character, Meaning this version will not be connected to Marvel’s Agents of Sheild. It is great to see the actor keep the role of Ghost Rider because most situations like this we see different actors get the role and I feel like Gabriel Luna did an awesome job.
The Marvel’s Helstorm storyline will focus on Daimon and Ana Helstorm who are tracking down the worst criminals they can find. They are the son and daughter of an unknown and powerful serial killer. The executive producer, Paul Zbyszewski said,
“As a lifelong Marvel fan, I feel incredibly fortunate to help bring this darker, thrilling corner of the comic book universe to life, and I’m just grateful to everyone at Marvel Television and Hulu for the opportunity.”
It makes sense that the characters won’t have ties to ABC’s Marvel’s Agents of Sheild because they want to dive into some of the darker Ghost Rider & Helstorm storylines. This is possible because of the Hulu partnership and Paul Zbyszewski also said,
“Marvel’s known for all the heart, humor, and action they put into every series, but this time around we’re adding some scares to that mix. I think we’ve found a compelling way to dissect some of our deepest fears through the experiences of our two lead characters.”
I’m really excited about this news because we already got a taste of what Ghost Rider could be like on Agents of Shield. Are you excited for a live action tv series from Ghost Rider and Helstorm coming to Hulu in 2020?
