AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. Star Gabriel Luna Has Some Interesting Thoughts On Possibly Returning As Ghost Rider

There was a time when Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. star Gabriel Luna was getting his own Ghost Rider spin-off series, and the actor has now shared more thoughts on what a possible return to the role would entail.

It's a little hard to believe, but more than five years have passed since Diego Luna last played the Robbie Reyes Ghost Rider in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. The character was a hit with fans, and the plan had been for him to star in his own spin-off series on Hulu. 

That all changed when Marvel Studios took control of Marvel Television, of course, and we now wait with bated breath to see what they have planned for the Spirit of Vengeance in the MCU. While we'd haven't to imagine they'll head back down the Johnny Blaze route in that long-rumoured Special Presentation, could there still be a place for Luna's Robbie somewhere? 

"Oh, I love that character. It was really special," The Last of Us star tells Forbes. "[He] had only come into existence in 2014, created by Felipe Smith, and then it was in 2016 that we did the show and literally not a day goes by that somebody doesn’t ask me about it."

"It feels like the demand may be there and if the creative is there and it makes sense," Luna adds. "I think with Marvel right now, it’s so intricately woven that it would be a few years out if they started to think about it, to do the character. I’m always open."

The actor would go on to say that his "stock answer" in interviews would typically be that he was happy with what the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. team accomplished with Ghost Rider and that he wouldn't necessarily want to taint that in any way. Now, though, it appears his outlook has changed. 

"I feel that I’m a lot more open should it come around. If it makes sense, I’m more than happy to...I try to keep myself in shape, Arnold [Schwarzenegger] demands it," Luca teases. "So I’m still certainly physically capable of doing it and if it’s a great story and they’d have me, of course."

We'd love to see what Luna could do with the character given a bigger budget, but it will largely depend on what Marvel Studios has planned for the hotheaded anti-hero moving forward. A reboot makes sense, especially if the plan is for Ghost Rider to eventually take centre stage in his own movie or TV show, though in recent years, the character has been part of The Avengers too.

I'd like him back, but I'd rather they focus on Johnny blaze first.

Gabriel did well in AOS but I hope when Ghost Rider in the form of Robbie Reyes comes to Marvel, they make him younger like the comics

He was so good... I'd love to have him back even if it's just as a one time multiversal visit.

Yes it would be nice to have him make a return. I feel he was one of the better characters that inhabited Agents of Shield. But I will also admit that it would be a hoot to see each actor who has ever played a Ghost Rider from the movies and TV show inhabit the same space in some sort of multiverse madness in a future Marvel film.

Luna's Ghost Rider was awesome.
Crazy it's been 5 years since he played GR. Really miss the days of SHIELD, we havent had an MCU show on that level since.

Only part of AoS that should be brought in to the MCU.
