It looks like Ghost Rider won’t be returning on Agents of SHIELD when the show comes back after its break. And it’s not because of new story directions, either. According to co-showrunner Jed Whedon, it’s simply too costly to portray the iconic look of Ghost Rider for television.
The latest report states:
The decision to leave Ghost Rider at the end of the midseason finale was due to “financial considerations”, and Whedon also added that “he is trapped in another place, which usually means that he’s not dead.”
It’s not known whether or not Gabriel Luna will return as Ghost Rider in the future, but he can always come back for another series or movie in the future.
And who knows, there’s always Netflix…
