Streaming service HULU and Marvel are extending their partnership, as ‘Marvel’s Ghost Rider’ and ‘Marvel’s Helstrom’ have been officially ordered into production as live action series.
“I couldn’t be more excited and honored to be handed the reins to a Marvel character as beloved as GHOST RIDER. This story hits every note for me—my love for grounded yet conflicted characters and my desire to scare the $&!# out of people! It’s important to me to find a take that thrills existing fans as well as wider audiences and I believe we’ve done just that,” said Executive Producer and Showrunner for Ghost Rider, Ingrid Escajeda.
‘Marvel’s Ghost Rider’ will center on the character Robbie Reyes, bound by a demon to seek vengeance for the innocents he encounters, while ‘Marvel’s Helstrom’ tracks siblings Daimon and Ana Helstrom as they hunt the worst of humanity.
Both series are co-productions with Marvel Television and ABC Signature Studios, and are showing the future of the more gritty/adult Marvel properties who appear to be destined for Hulu, while the more general audience series aim for the forthcoming Disney+ platform.
Expect both Helstrom and Ghost Rider on Hulu, next year in 2020!
