Marvel's Ghost Rider Cancelled at Hulu at' Impasse' as Teams Arrive
Hulu is pumping the brakes on Marvel's Ghost Rider. The streaming monster has opted not to move forward using a series based on the character, TVLine has confirmed five weeks.
The decision to offset Ghost Rider reportedly came when the show's team arrived in a"creative impasse" with Hulu.
Gabriel Luna, who previously depicted Ghost Rider (aka Robbie Reyes) in the fourth season of ABC's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., was put to reprise the role Hulu, albeit at a"new iteration" of the personality. Luna has been rather active on networking, posting excitedly about the show.
Despite Ghost Rider's dip, Hulu nevertheless has a full plate of Marvel content coming from the pipes.
Besides the upcoming third season of Runaways, the streamer is also moving ahead with its previously declared Helstrom series, along with four animated projects -- M.O.D.O.K, Hit-Monkey, Tigra & Dazzler Show and Howard The Duck.
TVLine's sister site Deadline was the first to report Ghost Rider's cancellation.
Earlier this past year, Hulu battled its plans for a"TV world" based on the books of John Grisham, starting with adaptations of The Rainmaker and Rogue Lawyer.
