Ghost Rider fans have some bad news. The potential Marvel spin-off series planned for Hulu is not moving forward. The streaming platform canceled its plans for the series this week. Marvel’s Ghost Rider was in the works after the character joined Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD in 2016.
Gabriel Luna played the Robbie Reyes version on Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD for several episodes, and he was a hit with fans. Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD returns later this season for its final season on ABC.
Why did Hulu cancel its plans for the Marvel’s Ghost Rider spin-off? Deadline reported that the teams at the streaming platform and behind the series reached a “creative impasse” that forced Hulu to scrap its plans. The series would have joined a busy Marvel line-up on the streamer. Marvel fans can see Marvel’s Runaways, and Marvel’s Helstrom is still in the works.
Stephen Lightfoot, Paul Zbyszewski and Jeph Loeb are behind Marvel’s Ghost Rider. There is still hope for the series. Another outlet might pick it up, but no one has expressed interest at this time.
Fans will next see Gabriel Luna on the big screen in Terminator: Dark Fate. He was excited for the return of Ghost Rider though. He shared a sketch of Ghost Rider on his Instagram just last week.
What do you think? Were you planning to watch Marvel’s Ghost Rider on Hulu? Do you want it to land on another network?
