Ghost Rider (Moon Knight)

Despite Hulu shutting down production on its’ Ghost Rider series starring Gabriel Luna, the Spirit of Vengeance may ride again. There are no current plans to use Robbie Reyes (Luna) or Johnny Blaze in the MCU, but a guest spot on Moon Knight sounds feasible.

In the comics, Moon Knight and Ghost Rider came face-to-face after Marc Spector launched an investigation into him. They battled it out once more during 2010’s Shadowland series.

The reason their comic history is relevant is that the antiheroes may dispute the other’s mean of stopping criminals. Ghost Rider tends to go to the extreme by burning sinner’s souls while Moon Knight seeks to bring criminals to justice, though that sometimes involves killing foes.

Either way, these two characters finding themselves at odds with each other would make for an interesting battle to see play out. They both thrive under the moonlight and possess supernatural powers that become stronger at night. Moon Knight’s extensive martial arts training, however, tips the odds in his favor.

Whatever the case may be, Ghost Rider showing up in Moon Knight’s corner of the universe seems inevitable. The Moon Knight series will likely touch upon magic and supernatural themes since Marc Spector at its core. So, the Spirit of Vengeance could enter the fray at some point.

The one thing we should mention is that Ghost Rider might not be headed to an existing Disney Plus series. Even though Hulu called it quits on their show, that doesn’t necessarily mean the property is completely dead. For all we know, Disney intends to resurrect the Ghost Rider series for its own streaming service. But that may be hoping for too much.

Marvel Studios’ Moon Knight doesn’t have an official release date. Stay tuned for more updates on when the Disney Plus series will be released, likely in 2022.
