Marvel Studios recently released a montage video featuring some of the more hair-raising moments from the Marvel Cinematic Universe to mark this weekend's Halloween celebrations, and one quick shot right at the end has some fans convinced that the studio is teasing the MCU debut of a certain Spirit of Vengeance.

The video features clips from the likes of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Moon Knight, Werewolf By Night, Loki season 2 (Miss Minutes' going all giant "Ghost Clock" and chasing people through the streets) Thor: The Dark World, and Ant-Man (it'll make sense when you watch), and concludes with "treat yourself to a happy Halloween" voiceover and a brief glimpse of a chain flying past the lettering.

While Ghost Rider isn't the only Marvel Comics character to utilize chains as part of his arsenal, he is arguably the most well-known, and the flame-headed, supernatural hero would certainly fit in with the horror theme here.

Granted, this might be a bit of a stretch, but we can't think of anything else the chain could possibly signify. Maybe it's a complete coincidence, and they just added it in because... chains are scary?

Rumors of an MCU Ghost Rider reboot have been doing the rounds for quite a while, and picked up steam following the release of last year's Werewolf By Night Special Presentation. A Midnight Sons project is said to be in the early stages of development (again, just a rumor), and with Marvel Studios beginning to explore the darker corners of the MCU, we can't see Kevin Feige and co. leaving Ghost Rider on the shelf for too much longer.

Several characters have held the Ghost Rider mantle in the comics over the years, including Johnny Blaze, Robbie Reyes, Danny Ketch, Alejandra Jones, Michael Badilino, and Kushala. Nicolas Cage played Blaze in two poorly-received movies, and more recently, Gabriel Luna portrayed Reyes in the now defunct Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D TV series.

Luna was all set to reprise the role for a solo series, but the project was shelved after the Marvel Television banner was disbanded.

What do you make of this? Is Marvel hinting at Ghost Rider's imminent MCU debut, or are people reading way too much into an errant chain? Have another look at the video below, and be sure to let us know in the comments section.

If it's not Robbie Reyes it doesn't matter

@TheMisfit138 - You mean you don't want Nicholas Cage????

I really wishit did, but this hardly seems to be the case.

I love the captain America side of mcu that's continuing with cap4 and thunderbolts

The street side wirh spiderman, daredevil, punisher, echo (I guess) will write its own checks

I'm ehh on the cosmic side because there's no direction there whatsoever after endgame

I'm getting excited finally about the multiverse stuff thanks to loki but also thanks to a re watch of strange2. (Going to rewarch antman3 tonight)

But what I'm MOST excited for is the dark side. Werewolf by night was so so good. And just the possibility of having 3-eye dark hold corrupted Dr strange alongside blade, bloodstone, man thing, and ghost rider? It would be bonkers not to go all out with it

...but then again I thought secret invasion was gonna be this huge thing with skrulls throughout phase 4 and it turned out to be a confined disney+ show. So my optimism is cautious at best

@Vigor - I still like the cosmic side the most despite it's lack of direction, but the dark side has a lot of potential. Really wanna see that culminate in a Midnight Sons project

A Ghost Rider Halloween special would've been a great way to bring the character back.
JstaKIDfrmBKLYN - 10/26/2023, 11:14 AM
Definitely a random inclusion. Maybe it's just hinting that the previous Fox Ghost Rider movies will be available on Disney+ for Halloween. More likely than a completely unknown Special.
MarkCassidy - 10/26/2023, 11:15 AM
@JstaKIDfrmBKLYN - Most likely... I just thought it was an interesting thing to stick in at the end there.
JstaKIDfrmBKLYN - 10/26/2023, 12:04 PM
@MarkCassidy - Definitely a good catch.

I don’t know.

They put all of their time and effort into teasing the next product, but never into making a good product.

No, no it doesn’t.

I mean, it probably was a purely disney+ ad to advertise mcu projects for the holiday. Feige probably didn't even clue them into plans for future projects for this.

Midnight Sons

Moon Knight
Ghost Rider
Werewolf By Night
Man Thing
Elsa Bloodstone

@Order66 -

I'd throw Black Knight and Doctor Strange in there as well. Never understood why Punisher was part of the team, though.
Slotherin - 10/26/2023, 5:03 PM
@Order66 - wish Sony had collaborated with Marvel to make Morbius good and MCU
MarvelousMarty - 10/26/2023, 12:11 PM
A Werewolf by Night type of special would be awesome. It won't happen.
ModHaterSLADE - 10/26/2023, 1:14 PM
Hopefully. I want a Midnight Suns project sooner than later.
WeaponXCII - 10/26/2023, 2:22 PM
I would love for Johnny Blaze to make his MCU debut.
Fogs - 10/26/2023, 3:04 PM
Seriously? A chain?

EternalMikeHunt - 10/26/2023, 5:56 PM
New Ghost Rider will be a woman (remember those, wokies?) and ALIVE, and the ether surrounding her will be water instead of fire (which is a trigger). BWAH-HA HA HA HA
