Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has been bringing back former characters, including those who have died, in their recent storyline “Agents of Hyrda.” The “What if?” storyline is a perfect place to be able to give fans a good look at those who they miss from the show. After seeing Agent Ward and Trip return, another character looks to be back on tap for the season finale. Ghost Rider is due back to help take care of the LMD problem that Coulson and company have been battling.
This tweet was in response to the news being broken via TVLine.com. Not much more information is available except that his return will specifically be due to an attempt by Aida to end the world as we know it. Tying up the two major storylines of the season makes a lot of sense.
This decision was telegraphed in several ways. His departure was done in such a way that it seemed probable that he would show back up. Then AIDA began constructing a dimensional portal that was similar to that which Ghost Rider disappeared into earlier in the season. Finally, those watching Gabriel Luna on twitter would know that he has constantly dropped little hints that suggested he was looking forward to playing the role again.
What do you think? Is this a good decision to bring back Robbie Reyes? Are you interested in the rumored Ghost Rider spin-off series? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
