AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. Star Gabriel Luna Makes A Case For Robbie Reyes GHOST RIDER Joining The MCU

When Marvel Television was still a thing, the plan had been for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. star Gabriel Luna to star in a Ghost Rider TV series, and the actor now makes a case for his hero to get an MCU debut.

Believe it or not, it's now been five years since Diego Luna 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, could there still be a place for Robbie somewhere? 

With Charlie Cox and Vincent D'Onofrio making the leap from Netflix to the MCU for Daredevil: Born Again, it seems Luna is optimistic that his anti-hero will get another chance. 

"You know, I think that the way we left it...I would definitely think that there's a lot more to say. I loved the response. Everyone loved Robbie and they loved the character," the actor tells ComicBook.com"And if we only ever did those ten episodes and nothing else, I would feel very complete with what we were able to do."

"To bring awareness to the character, to show people a Mexican-American hero - the first on television, I believe. I know that's said a lot, but I think people forget about 2016 when we did that with Robbie. But he's a wonderful character and I love him. I'd absolutely be happy to continue."

"There are so many places you can go because in the comics he became an Avenger, and he's now the All-Rider, which is pretty awesome when you think about it," Luna continued, proving he's still very much a fan. "He's become quite an important piece in Marvel publishing so if he were to appear again, he absolutely deserves it. Whether it's me or not."

It's true that Robbie has become a key part of the MCU, so perhaps there will be room for this Ghost Rider in Avengers: The Kang Dynasty or Avengers: Secret Wars.

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.
