With the fourth season of Marvel’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.‘ set to introduce us to Ghost Rider later this month, the new promos are showing up and giving us a better look at the character! As most cinematic and even comic fans are more familiar with the Johny Blaze version of Ghost Rider, I believe part of the massive influx of teasers will be due to this being the newer Robbie Reyes version of the character which is a completely different version.
First up, we have a shot of Gabriel Luna in costume for Ghost Rider but without the iconic flaming skull that we’ll be sure to see in the series.
We do know that the Season 4 premiere is likely to give us some kind of introduction to the character as well with it being titled “The Ghost.” At this time, no synopsis for the episode has been revealed though it seems unlikely that we’d be getting all of this new promotional material without Reyes being introduced right off the bat.
Speaking of promotional material, the next one is a fun little “found footage” style release
Recently Marvel had also released a quick 1-minute introduction to the comic version of the character if you’d like to learn a little more about him going into the season. Obviously, Marvel TV doesn’t strictly follow the comics but it might help to give you an idea of what to expect!
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns with a vengeance for the fourth exciting season in an all new time period, Tuesday at 10:00 p.m. ET. In the aftermath of their journey to another planet, Director Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) and the rest of the team were driven more than ever to put an end to the Hydra organization. Little did they know that they were up against the deadliest threat they’ve ever faced – an extremely powerful Inhuman, Hive, who was transported back from Maveth in the body of their worst enemy, Grant Ward. The team was able to thwart and kill Hive and take down Hydra, but they are all still mourning the death of fellow agent and Inhuman, Lincoln Campbell.
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 (Jason O’Mara) to be the face of the organization. Coulson finds himself back in the role as an agent and teamed with Mack (Henry Simmons), 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 (Chloe Bennet), 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 (Ming-Na Wen) is tasked with training specialist strike teams, and Fitz (Iain De Caestecker) and Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) 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.
Robbie Reyes (Gabriel Luna) will roar into the lives of Agent Coulson and the team as a junkyard mechanic who can turn on a dime into the terrifying Ghost Rider. Will Robbie be a friend or foe to S.H.I.E.L.D. – as well as the world, itself? Meanwhile, Fitz discovers that socially awkward genius and friend Dr. Radcliffe (John Hannah) has started putting the finishing touches on a new, secret invention.

Marvel’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ will be blazing back onto ABC on Tuesday, September 20th, 2016 at 10pm ET!
