It is being reported that Marvel is in early discussions to bring a Ghost Rider television series to Hulu. But there’s a catch, Hulu will be accessible through a parental lock on Disney Plus.
This comes from Mikey Sutton over at Geekosity and lately, we’ve had a lot of information coming to us from there. That’s because Geekosity did a huge Christmas Scoop Jam on December 25th with various YouTube channels. We here at Small Screen exclusively debuted the Captain Britain scoop during that jam. You can check that video out here.
Right. So the information revealed, is that Marvel is in early discussions to bring a Ghost Rider television series to Hulu. Earlier this month it was reported that it was being discussed by Disney to merge Hulu and Disney Plus. In this new report by Sutton, we learn that Disney Plus will act as a portal to Hulu, via parental lock, and this will allow Kevin Feige to produce his horror IPs without having to tailor them to a family-friendly audience.
A Ghost Rider television series is being planned for Disney Plus/Hulu
Sutton had this to say about a Ghost Rider television series coming to Disney Plus/Hulu:
The Midnight Sons may be introduced in one of the new Blade movies … but Marvel Studios see him as the perfect vehicle for a mature TV show while making theatrical appearances as well with his freakish partners in the Midnight Sons. In the months ahead, development will begin to commence and reveal who is really going to generate scares on Hulu.
Now, this goes nicely with Edward’s exclusive today about Keanu Reeves being in talks for a role at Marvel. One of his sources had said they were hearing it was for Ghost Rider. Either way, I’m looking forward to seeing some more Ghost Rider on the screen.
I wasn’t sure of the skull heads incarnation on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D but it grew on me and quickly became a favourite. The Nicolas Cage films hold a soft spot in my heart (as all Nic Cage films do), and I am really excited to see what Kevin Feige and Marvel decide to do with the character. Now that the rights are back in their hands.
