While a whole slew of new Marvel TV shows are currently in development, now comes word on two more Marvel series on the way.
Courtesy of Variety, Marvel’s Ghost Rider and Marvel’s Helstrom are being developed by Hulu. Hulu, of course, is owned by Fox. Which in turn means that Hulu is now essentially owned by Disney.
Having appeared as the Robbie Reyes version of the Spirit of Vengeance in Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Gabriel Luna will be headlining Ghost Rider. Ingrid Escajeda is executive producing and will serve as showrunner, with Jeph Loeb and Paul Zbyszewski also on exec producer duties.
The early official world on Marvel’s Ghost Rider reads:
Marvel’s Ghost Rider, also knows 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 to the innocents he encounters, but struggles to control the power he wields.
As for Marvel’s Helstrom, no casting news is known at this stage, although we do have word that Paul Zbyszewski has the showrunner gig. The early blurb on that particular offering reads:
Daimon and Ana Helstrom are the son and daughter of a mysterious and powerful serial killer in Marvel’s Helstrom. The siblings have a complicated dynamic as they track down the terrorizing worst of humanity – each with their attitude and skills.
Marvel’s Ghost Rider and Marvel’s Helstrom join fellow upcoming Marvel shows Marvel’s Hit-Monkey, Marvel’s M.O.D.O.K., Marvel’s Tigra & Dazzler, Marvel’s Howard the Duck, Marvel’s The Offenders, and then the Disney+ outings for Scarlet Witch and Vision, Falcon and Winter Soldier, Loki, Hawkeye, and possibly Lady Sif.
Ghost Rider and Helstrom are both expected to premiere in 2020.
