The Spirit of Vengeance is out and ready to take up another host. This year, fans of Marvel’s Ghost Rider watched as the character made his live-action debut on Agents of SHIELD. Following the hero’s big screen stint with Nicholas Cage, the supernatural character was brought to life by Gabriel Luna. The praised actor introduced fans to Robbie Reyes, the most recent iteration of Ghost Rider over the years. Fans have been asking if Ghost Rider will get a larger part in the MCU as the franchise moves forward. So far, the hero’s future with Agents of SHIELD is unclear, but there is one thing Luna would like to see happen with Ghost Rider.
At some point, the actor wants to see Norman Reedus suit up as the hellish hero.
Over the weekend, the Agents of SHIELD star appeared at Phoenix Comic-Con where he answered fan questions during a panel. It was there the actor endorsed The Walking Dead star, and Luna said he wants his version of Ghost Rider to team up with Reedus as Johnny Blaze. According to Omega Underground, Luna seems keen on exploring more of Reyes’ connection with Blaze as Agents of SHIELD hinted the older man gifted Luna’s character his powers. The actor noted that Agents of SHIELD never named Blaze outright due to legal issues. Still, fans seem to have gotten the point.
As for Reedus, it is no secret that the actor would be down to play Ghost Rider. The motorcycle-loving actor has talked about his interest in the role more than once. In a previous interview with Uproxx, Reedus told the site he would have a blast playing the hero.
"It would be a blast. Do I get a skull face that’s on fire and all that stuff? F*** yeah. I’m down,” Reedus explained.
