Following the mass hysteria that Marvel generated during their Luke Cage panel at San Diego Comic-Con last night, expectations were high for what Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. would bring us. The panel itself was not too exciting until the end when they confirmed yesterday’s rumor that Ghost Rider will debut on the show, and shortly after announced that Gabriel Luna has landed the role. Now that the word is out, Marvel is doing all they can to promote this announcement and get everyone excited for the debut come this fall.
While we are still waiting for some concept art of his look, Marvel has released a new season four poster that is a SDCC exclusive at their booth for fans to pick up. The poster, drawn by Mike Perkins, does not reveal the look of Robbie Reyes, but it does bring the gang together amidst what we presume to be his flames.
If this is a season four “preview” poster of sorts, the biggest takeaways for me are that Fitz and Simmons are both carrying guns, something very out of the ordinary for both. Are they trying to be more well rounded agents or simply found themselves in a bad situation? Also, Mack’s shotgun axe has returned! Hopefully for good in a “darker” season. This could be nothing, but I would have guessed May took over as director but she looks ready to fight, not sit back like a director likely would. Let us know what you think of the poster in the comments below!
Season 4 of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. premiers on Tuesday September 20th at 10 p.m. EST on ABC.
