Well, this is a surprise. Ghost Rider is coming to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but not for a movie—and perhaps not the incarnation of the Ghost Rider you were expecting.
Actually, it’s not that much of a surprise. Rumors about Ghost Rider heading to SHIELD kicked off about a month ago, when wild speculation—which, full disclosure, at the time I completely dismissed as a load of nonsense, so turns out I’m pretty dumb—about Ghost Rider’s arrival on SHIELD was linked to a fiery chain displayed on the side of SHIELD-themed San Diego trams for Comic-Con. A couple of weeks later, they were solidified with a casting call sourced by TV Line that was looking for actors to play Latino brothers, one of whom was paralyzed.
