Marvel Studios' Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is hosting a panel later on Friday at Comic-Con International: San Diego, but something at their Marvel Booth might be spoiling a surprise. Take a look at what's on display - yet still obscured - at their booth:
Although this car-shaped cloaked object could be something other than a car, it appears to be a car with a hood scoop. Marvel Comics' recently introduced a similiar car as the vehicle of the newest Ghost Rider Robbie Reyes in All-New Ghost Rider.
But what does that have to do with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.? Well, the ABC series bought advertising space at San Diego with dynamic graphic wraps of transit vehicles to display fiery chains - something akin to Ghost Rider.
At first it was thought to be the Inhuman known as Hellfire, who in comic books uses fiery chains and has already appeared in previous episodes of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D..
Another log to add to this fire is the recent report that Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was casting for two actors sounding conspicuously like the aforementioned "All-New" Ghost Rider Robbie Reyes and his brother, Gabe.
Although Sony (under its subsidary Columbia Pictures) produced two Ghost Rider films in the past, Marvel Studios' President Kevin Feige confirmed in 2013 that the rights had reverted back to Marvel along with Luke Cage and the Punisher - the latter, from Lionsgate. Both Luke Cage and the Punisher went on to appear in Marvel's Netflix television shows.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s SDCC panel is scheduled to begin Friday at 3:00 p.m. PT, and Newsarama will be covering that panel live. Stay tuned for more on this developing story.
