Hulu is not moving forward with the previously-announced Ghost Rider series with Gabriel Luna, according to Deadline. Luna originated the role on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. The Ghost Rider series was announced along with Helstrom back in May, and both shows were going to premiere in 2020.
The site says that Marvel’s Helstrom is still on track, but the Ghost Rider team have reached a creative impasse which could not be resolved, leading to Hulu’s decision not to move forward with the series. Marvel’s Ghost Rider was going to be executive produced by Ingrid Escajeda, who was to serve as showrunner, Paul Zbyszewski and Marvel’s Jeph Loeb.
Hulu is currently airing Marvel’s Runaways already. In addition to the upcoming live-action Marvel’s Helstrom, the streaming service is developing adult animated series based on the popular Marvel Television characters. They include Marvel’s M.O.D.O.K, Marvel’s Hit-Monkey, Marvel’s Tigra & Dazzler Show and Marvel’s Howard The Duck, which will culminate in a special event, Marvel’s The Offenders.
Marvel’s Ghost Rider, also known as Robbie Reyes, is a quintessential antihero, consumed by hellfire and supernaturally bound to a demon. Reyes lives on the Texas/Mexico border and when he unleashes the Rider, Robbie brings vengeance for the innocents he encounters, but struggles to control the power he wields.
