With all the buzz surrounding Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. this season regarding Ghost Rider it was hard to not be excited but also a little apprehensive. Lets be honest after two crappy movies, Ghost Rider’s stock was pretty low. But with what Yahoo TV just dropped on us, the future looks very bright for Ghost Rider.
This time around it’s not the Johnny Blaze version of the character. It’s the Robbie Reyes version, who favors a muscle car over a motorcycle.
Here’s the synopsis for the new season…
In light of the Sokovia Accords, and with Hydra obliterated, S.H.I.E.L.D. has been legitimized again and no longer needs to operate in the shadows. Since the world presumes that Coulson is dead, the organization needed a new Director to be the face of the organization. Coulson finds himself back in the role as an agent and teamed with Mack, 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, 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 is tasked with training specialist strike teams, and Fitz and Simmons 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.
And here’s a little teaser for the Hell Charger…
I honestly would have loved for Ghost Rider to pop up in the Netflix shows and we can hope he still can, but this could be the “fire under the ass” Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. needs to be great again.
Let’s tune in September 20th at 10pm to see for ourselves.
