Marvel & Hulu Announce ‘Helstrom’ and ‘Ghost Rider’ TV Series
Marvel’s Ghost Rider and Marvel’s Helstrom will be two new live-action shows available on Hulu starting next year. While Disney is prepped to roll out their own line-up of new Marvel content on Disney+ later this year, they are still the majority stakeholder in Hulu, which means both streaming services should continue to provide various Marvel stories in the future.
Marvel’s Helstrom will follow siblings Daimon and Ana Helstrom, children of a notorious and mysterious serial killer, as they bring vengeance upon the scourge of society while working through a “complicated dynamic.” With Paul Zbyszewski at the helm, and the cast still in in the works, this creative team at Marvel look to bring “fear” to Marvel’s stable of shows in new and exciting ways.
Gabriel Luna, who played Robbie Reyes on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. in season four, is tapped to continue carrying his flame of vengeance in Marvel’s Ghost Rider. The show will focus on the anti-hero as he continues to battle demons, inside and out. Executive producer and showrunner Ingrid Escajeda gave insight to her take on the character and project stating, “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!”
Marvel has been busy with the announcement of shows for their streaming platforms. Announcements have included series focused on Falcon and Winter Soldier, as well as Wanda Maximoff and Vision, the Loki series fans were begging for, and a slate of animated content on Hulu with M.O.D.O.K.; Hit Monkey; Tigra and Dazzler; and Howard the Duck. It is a very exciting time to watch as characters from the pages of our most-loved comic books continue to be brought to life.
We are certainly looking forward to these darker dives into the Marvel catalog. Let us know what you think in the comments below.
