Agents of SHIELD Exec Reveals Why They Took Out Ghost Rider
The current season of Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD had generated a lot of positive buzz before and during its premiere thanks to the inclusion of the current Ghost Rider, Robbie Reyes, on the roster but then had to say bye-bye during the show’s midseason finale.
Fans were left scratching their collective heads and sighing in disbelief over what happens with Marvel keeping mum on the subject and instead opting to hype up the series’ next story arc on Life Model Decoys or LMDs.
Spoilers if you haven’t caught up to the show.
Robbie Reyes was about to go full Ghost Rider on his uncle Eli Morrow’s ass before they suddenly vanished.
He originally joined the ragtag crew of SHIELD agents to take on Quake aka Daisy Johnson who went rogue at the start of the season but eventually winded up actually joining the team for a bit.
So now this leaves us the question, “Where is Robbie Reyes?”
In a TVLine interview with showrunner Jed Whedon, its been revealed that Ghost Rider is trapped in another place. He adds that that would also mean that he’s alive and could return at any point in the future.
Agents of SHIELD executive producer Jeffrey Bell also chimed in on the subject giving fans a more real-world answer.
[Ghost Rider is] a lot for 22 [episodes], especially with everything else that we like and care about on the show… It would feel like one flavor over a long period of time, but we’ve certainly left it open.
Still Agents of SHIELD has a habit of returning to a previous story arc before the season closes so there’s still hope for Ghost Rider and fans of Robbie Reyes. We’ll see.
Agents of SHIELD returns to ABC on January 10 andstars Clark Gregg as Agent Phil Coulson, Chloe Bennet as Daisy “Quake” Johnson, Ming-Na Wen as Melinda May, Iain De Caestecker as Leo Fitz, Elizabeth Henstridge as Jemma Simmons, Henry Simmons as Alphonso “Mack” Mackenzie and more
