ABC has released a new poster for the upcoming season 4 premiere of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and it includes another glimpse of the much anticipated Ghost Rider.
Robbie Reyes' version of the spirit of vengeance will debut early on in the season, and fans will get to see just what he is capable of in episode 2, where he will take on Daisy "Quake" Johnson, who is now on the outs with the team. You can view the new poster in the gallery.
Executive Producer Jeff Bell recently noted that Ghost Rider's inclusion will allow the show to explore some grittier themes. “If anyone’s familiar with the Robbie Reyes version of Ghost Rider,” she says, they know the show will have to go to some dark places. “These massive themes [are] being threaded throughout our season.”
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 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. Agent May is tasked with training specialist strike teams, and Fitz and Simmons have taken a big step forward in their relationship.
Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns on September 20th on ABC.
