Season 4 of Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. is upon us and, by all accounts, this new batch of episodes if already off to a flyer following last night’s scintillating premiere. The fun doesn’t stop there, though, with the studio already directing attention to episode 2, “Meet the New Boss.”
Those of you who have been keeping tabs of the appropriately fiery marketing campaign for season 4 will have no doubt clocked eyes on the first images already, but we now have a promo to sate our appetite ahead of September 27 – one which drums up the seemingly imminent clash between Quake and Robbie Reyes himself, Ghost Rider.
Indeed, Gabriel Luna’s Spirit of Vengeance has stolen headlines left, right and center for Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.‘s fourth and possibly final season, and considering that the actor views his demonic stunt driver as a “wild card,” it’s not too difficult to see why.
“Yeah, he’s very powerful. That’s a huge wild card to throw into the mix. We’re starting to toe the line and inch towards some ground that hasn’t been covered, but that is a huge part of the books themselves and the entire Marvel universe and the canon of Marvel’s assortment of characters. What we haven’t touched on are things that can’t be explained perfectly by science. It’s a lot of really fun stuff that starts to lean into the world of Doctor Strange, Ghost Rider and Mephisto, and all of these other elements that also exist there, like ghouls and goblins and all sorts of cool things. We’re happy to be the ones to break the ice on that.”
Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 4 continues next week with the premiere of episode 2, “Meet The New Boss.” If you didn’t catch last night’s barnstorming fight scene and want to relive it all over again, we’ve included the piping hot video down below.
