OK internet, calm down…
The Agents of SHIELD themed train for SDCC didn’t just tease Ghost Rider for the show’s fourth year.
Well, we don’t think it did, anyway.
The train has a flaming chain wrapped around it – not literally, you understand – and we can certainly understand why everyone is thinking it’s Ghost Rider… the flaming chain is his signature weapon, after all.
But our money is on it being Hellfire, who appeared at the end of season three, who also happens to use a flaming chain (see image below then keep reading).
We just can’s see a potential A-List character liks ghost Rider being allowed to make his MCU debut in Agents of SHIELD, especially with all the recent tension between the TV shows and movies.
Hellfire IS connected to the Rider, as he is the grandson of Carter Slade, the first Ghost Rider in the comic continuity, so the chain is certainly hinting at the leather-clad, bike-riding terror.
Or we’re completely wrong and next season SHIELD will trade blows with Ghost Rider. We do doubt it though.
