Marvel's Live-Action Ghost Rider Show Is Heading To Hulu
There might be a wealth of Marvel content in development for the upcoming streaming service Disney+, but that won't be the only platform for the studio's superhero shows. It has been announced that two new Marvel shows are in the works to premiere on Hulu.
The service has revealed that live-action Ghost Rider and Helstrom shows are in development and both will arrive in 2020. Ghost Rider is being produced by Ingrid Escajeda, who previously worked on shows such as Sneaky Pete and Empire, and she will also act as showrunner.
It has also been confirmed that this Ghost Rider will be Robbie Reyes, who recently featured as a character in Agents of SHIELD, as opposed to Johnny Blaze, who was played by Nicolas Cage in the two Ghost Rider movies released in the 2000s. Gabriel Luna played Reyes on Agents of SHIELD, and Variety have confirmed that he will reprise the role in the new show.
Helstrom will focus on the Daimon and Ana Helstrom, the son and daughter of a mysterious and powerful serial killer who use their skills to track down villains. Like Ghost Rider, they were created in the 1970s to take Marvel comic book characters in a more supernatural direction. This will be first time the Helstroms have featured in a movie or on TV.
These new shows will join Runaways on Hulu; the third season of the teen-oriented show arrives later this year. In addition, four new animated Marvel Hulu shows were announced back in February. These are M.O.D.O.K, Hit-Monkey, Tigra & Dazzler Show, and Howard The Duck.
As for the Marvel series on Disney+, we know that Loki, the Scarlet Witch show WandaVision, and one focusing on Falcon and Winter Soldier are on the way. While release dates are yet to be announced, it was recently confirmed that Marvel shows will start rolling out in 2020.
