The Agents of SHIELD have successfully launched Ghost Rider in the Marvel Cinematic Universe causing talks and speculations that there might be a future for the fiery hero beyond the ABC show, perhaps something like a Netflix spin-off. Gabriel Luna, who played Ghost Rider, said that there has indeed been talking about it and said he loves the idea of Ghost Rider and the Midnight Sons.

In a recent interview with Comic Book, Luna said that there have been discussions regarding the potential places where Ghost Rider will go next. He said that some of those ideas include a movie or a Netflix series. He is excited but said that he is taking it one day at a time.

“I have so much fun now I just want to make sure I get these episodes right. If they throw more episodes on my plate, I will do my best to do well with those stories as well,” Luna said.

He also added that it would be cool to see the Midnight Sons together or the Dark Avengers, all the teams that Ghost Rider has been involved in. He also mentioned that putting Blade, The Punisher, and Strange together has great potential as well.

For those who might not be aware of the Midnight Sons, these are the supernatural heroes who banded together at one time to defeat the demon queen Lilith. Some of those include Morbius, the Nightstalkers, Strange, and Ghost Rider. Although the group did not last long, it has gained a cult following who would really love to see the group added into the MCU soon.

Aside from this Luna also confirmed that the possibility of Ghost Rider joining the Defenders is nil saying the group has “NYC and Hell’s Kitchen on lock.” He, however, presented a very interesting proposition that the MCU might consider in the future – more West Coast heroes.

It would indeed be interesting to see a group of heroes banding together in L.A, similar to what they did in NYC. Perhaps, Ghost Rider can headline that and lead this group to protect the West Coast.
