The title of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 4 has been revealed, and it seems to hint at an early debut for the season's most anticipated new character.
It was announced at Comic-Con International: San Diego that Ghost Rider will debut in the Marvel cinematic universe as a part of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 4, and, judging by the title, it sounds like Ghost Rider is driving into the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 4 premiere.
The Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 4 premiere episode is titled "The Ghost," according to Spoiler TV. No synopsis was attached to the title reveal.
At the time of reporting, this episode title is unconfirmed by ABC. However, Spoiler TV has proven reliable in the past when it comes to acquiring episode titles shortly before they are officially revealed.
The connection here is that "The Ghost" and Ghost Rider share a keyword: "Ghost." That seems to connect the premiere title directly to the character, but it could be a misdirect.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has a tendency to obscure the true identities of characters from the audience. That doesn't seem to be the case with Ghost Rider since ABC and Marvel Television already announced that Gabriel Luna will be playing Robbie Reyes in Agents of S.H.I.E.LD. Season 4. If anything, "The Ghost" may be how the characters in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. refer to Ghost Rider before they learn his real name. Shortening Ghost Rider to "The Ghost" also avoids the awkward question of why he's called Ghost Rider when Robbie Reyes drives a car. A more detailed the Ghost Rider called Robbie Reyes can be found here.
Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 4 premieres Tuesday, Sept. 20 at 10 p.m. ET on ABC.
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.0comments
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.
