At the Agents of SHIELD panel at San Diego Comic-Con, there was a lot of reminiscing about the past three seasons. Since they just started filming yesterday, there wasn't any new footage to show for Season 4. They did drop a big bomb on the panel at the end with a short teaser.
"Vengeance comes this fall."
It was assumed the flaming chains seen in the promo images around San Diego were for Hellfire. It made a little sense since he sided with Hive in Season 3. The question was: Why would he be such a big part of the image for the next season? There was some speculation that perhaps Ghost Rider would be in the show because of the chains. That made less sense since he doesn't have a connection to S.H.I.E.L.D in the comics. It turns out that is what is happening.
Gabriel Luna (True Detective, Matador) will take on the role of Robbie Reyes in the next season. Based on Luna's age, there are obviously some changes being made to the character.
"Season 4 will unquestionably be the series' biggest, most ambitious story yet, and it all begins with the introduction of one of our greatest legacy characters in Ghost Rider," said Executive Producer/Head of Marvel Television, Jeph Loeb. "When the Spirit of Vengeance rides into SHIELD, it'll change everything."
Here's the first meeting of FitzSimmons in Iain De Caestecker and Elizabeth Henstridge's screentest.
Chloe Bennet and Brett Dalton's first screentest was also shown.
Here's the gag reel from Season 3.
Marvel's Agents of SHIELD returns on Tuesday, September 20, at 10 PM EST.
Update: Robbie Reyes' car was just unveiled.
