Poor FitzSimmons. The world of the mystic is coming to the MCU, and Agents of SHIELD's scientists won't take the advent of the supernatural sitting down.
In the past, Marvel has found a way to shmience it's way through everything from the Tesseract to the nine realms to Inhumans. When Doctor Strange hits theaters, this company line will change, thus creating a world in which SHIELD's science wonder twins might not be able to explain away the existence of Ghost Rider (Gabriel Luna).
"Magic is magic in this movie. It's not something that's explained away scientifically," director Scott Derrickson told Games Radar at San Diego Comic-Con (via Comic Book). "It's not something that's easy to define. As magic should be. Magic should be mysterious. There's mystery to magic and there's mystery to the tone of the movie. Mystery is a good thing."
The MCU doesn't truck with coincidence - #itsallconnected, right? - and as Steven Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) hits theaters this November, Robbie Reyes will bring his flaming skull to ABC early this fall. Should Fitz (Iain De Caestecker) be faced with the unraveling the origins of Ghost Rider, he won't easily accept a conclusion outside the realm of science.
"If he can't find a reason, he'll look for one," De Caestecker told EnStars at SDCC. "He's quite cynical - well, not cynical, but science he believes can explain probably everything. I can't imagine it would be something that he would immediately kind of accept."
Get your first look at Ghost Rider's car in the set video below! Daisy (Chloe Bennet) looks awfully calm for someone speeding along on the roof, but, then again, she's not exactly easily frightened.
Agents of SHIELD returns to ABC on Sept. 20 at 10 p.m. ET.
