Ghost Rider is bringing a sweet set of wheels to “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” Season 4. A new promo video for the premiere of the ABC drama focuses on the car more than anyone else.
“They say when the Rider burns you, he burns your soul,” someone says in the trailer. While it’s clear that they’re talking about Ghost Rider, the alter ego of Robbie Reyes (Gabriel Luna), it seems like his car is also a creature to be feared. The 1969 Dodge Charger, also known as the Hell Charger, is shown off from several angles. This isn’t just a cool car, though. It’s on fire as it collides with a truck, and that’s actually not a bad thing.
The Hell Charger has its own powers. In the comics, the car can self-repair, generate Hellfire and can ram through most things without getting damaged, according to Marvel Database. If the “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” writers keep all of the powers from the comics, it looks like the Hell Charger could give Coulson’s (Clark Gregg) Lola some serious competition.
The trailer only gives a quick glimpse of Robbie as well as some other characters. Coulson and his new partner Mack (Henry Simmons) seem to be looking for someone dangerous. Both have their guns drawn. Viewers also see Fitz (Iain De Caestecker) looking particularly concerned. Perhaps he’s worried about Daisy (Chloe Bennet).
Like the other clips in the Season 4 premiere trailer, the rogue agent is only shown for a second. However, it’s clear that she’s still in a dark place. She’s rocking some serious smudged eye makeup and seems to be in the street. She looks frightened, and that can’t be good. Is she going to face off with Ghost Rider? After all, he looks pretty scary. Yahoo released the first image of Robbie’s alter ego Monday.
It’s not clear if Ghost Rider will be a good guy yet, but Daisy is still fighting evil, despite running away from S.H.I.E.L.D. As previously reported, Chloe Bennet teased that her character was still saving people. “You’ll see coming up that there might be chaos happening and buildings might be collapsing and bridges might have been broken, but people are always miraculously saved and taken care of, the bad guys always seem to be losing,” Bennet told TVLine last month. “I think she’s becoming more of a vigilante than maybe she would like. I think she’s trying to do good.”
“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” Season 4 premieres Tuesday, Sept. 20, at 10 p.m. EDT on ABC.
