Previously, it was announced that Luna would be playing the Robbie Reyes version of the character, whom was the subject of Marvel‘s All-New Ghost Rider line of comics before the series was cancelled after 12 issues. As Luna explains, this means there is relatively little canon for the show’s producers to draw from, meaning it will be up to them to determine where the character and his story go from here.
Set to join Agents of SHIELD in it’s fourth season, Ghost Rider will arrive in a time of relative peace for the organization and its operatives:
In light of the Sokovia Accords, and with Hydra obliterated, S.H.I.E.L.D. has been legitimatized again and no longer needs to operate in the shadows. Since the world presumes that Coulson is dead, the organization needed a new Director to be the face of the organization. Coulson finds himself back in the role as an agent and teamed with Mack, and together they are tasked with tracking down and confirming the presence of Enhanced people, aka Inhumans. They have been trying to track down and capture Daisy, aka Quake, who has gone rogue in an attempt to atone for sins from the past. But with the world believing that Daisy is a dangerous outlaw who has taken down banks and bridges, the new Director has no qualms about taking her down for good. Agent May is tasked with training specialist strike teams, and Fitz and Simmons have taken a big step forward in their relationship. But with Simmons’ new promotion as Special Advisor to the Director in Science and Technology, Fitz, as well as her former team members, finds it hard to confide in or trust her since she’s now the Director’s confidant.
