The Spirit of Vengeance will ride again! Just not quite the Spirit of Vengeance you may be hoping for. Variety (https://variety.com/2019/tv/news/ghost-rider-helstrom-marvel-series-hulu-1203201891/) reports that Hulu has put in an order for a brand new live-action TV series adaptation of Marvel Comicsí Ghost Rider, and confirms that this will be the modern Robbie Reyes version of the character.
Of course, we most recently saw the Robbie Reyes version of Ghost Rider portrayed in awesome fashion by Diego Luna in season 4 of Marvelís Agents of SHIELD. The actor was an instant hit with fans, and Hulu and Marvel are doing the smart thing of having him reprise the role. However, itís being reported that Luna will be playing a version of Robbie Reyes that officially has nothing to do with his previous appearance on Agents of SHIELD. He still sounds exactly the same though, as Huluís official press release describes him as ďa quintessential antihero, consumed by hellfire and supernaturally bound to a demon. 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. Ē
