First look: Gabriel Luna as Ghost Rider – including “found” cell phone footage!

Entertainment Weekly has given us our first look at Gabriel Luna as Ghost Rider in Season 4 of Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD

Executive producer Jed Whedon told EW:

“We are going to put our own spin on the character, staying true to the comics in the places where we feel like it’s really important — we love the character’s family dynamic and the East L.A. kid in him.”

It has already been confirmed that Luna will be playing the Robbie Reyes version of Ghost Rider who debuted in All-New Ghost Rider #1 (2014) and lasted for 12 issues. Luna notes:

“Because there is so little material on him right now, a lot of the show is going to be expanding the Ghost Rider canon, that’s really cool. It’s all me. It’s all on me.”

Luna revealed that he will perform the flame-headed version of his character, which will be augmented with VFX.

“I am playing that. We have this great VFX for it, and I saw the mockup the other day and I thought it was completely finished. I was like, ‘Just throw that up on my TV.’ It’s a combination of CG and also some marking on my face so I can do some expressions.”

On top of that Marvel have just launched a “found cell phone” which contains footage of Ghost Rider:
