When it comes to horror-tinged superheroes, there are few as cool as Ghost Rider, a spirit of vengeance who uses infernal powers to punish the wicked and protect the innocent. Or at least usually, there have been multiple iterations of the flaming hero.
Hailing from the fantastic world of Marvel Comics, Ghost Rider was of course the subject of two theatrical films in 2007 and 2012 that starred Nicolas Cage as the most well-known version of the character, a motorcycle-riding daredevil named Johnny Blaze.
Recently, the latest comic version of Ghost Rider, Robbie Reyes was introduced to ABC’s Marvel show Agents of SHIELD. Played by Gabriel Luna, this incarnation of the leather-clad badass earned a fanbase, and was soon set to get his own star vehicle.
A Ghost Rider TV series was first announced as in the works by Marvel and Hulu back in May, but now, Deadline reports that the project won’t move forward, at least not at Hulu. Sadly, it appears that creative differences were at the heart of the decision.
The Ghost Rider series starring Luna as Reyes was planned to debut in 2020, but those plans are now obviously canceled. It’s unclear if the show might go elsewhere, but considering Disney now owns both Marvel and Hulu, it seems unlikely that will occur.
