Marvel's Ghost Rider and Marvel's Helstorm are two brand new live-action series

"Marvel’s Ghost Rider, also known as Robbie Reyes, is a quintessential antihero, consumed by hellfire and supernaturally bound to a demon," according to the official logline.

"Reyes lives on the Texas/Mexico border and when he unleashes the Rider, Robbie brings vengeance for the innocents he encounters, but struggles to control the power he wields."

The series is executive produced by Ingrid Escajeda, who will serve as showrunner, Paul Zbyszewski, and Marvel’s Jeph Loeb.

The character of Ghost Rider most recently appeared on the small screen during Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 4. He was played by Gabriel Luna. 

Shortly after the news of the series broke, Variety confirmed that Luna will be reprising his role from the ABC hit

As for Marvel's Helstrom, "Daimon and Ana Helstrom are the son and daughter of a mysterious and powerful serial killer," reads the official synopsis.

"The siblings have a complicated dynamic as they track down the terrorizing worst of humanity — each with their attitude and skills."

This series is executive produced by Paul Zbyszewski, who will serve as showrunner and Marvel’s Jeph Loeb.

Given that Netflix has severed ties with Marvel TV, it looks like Hulu could be home to multiple Marvel series in the coming years. 

Hulu has also revealed that it has expanded its subscriber base to more than 28 million accounts. Of those, 26.8 million are monthly paid subscribers, while 1.3 million are promotional accounts.

“In today’s direct-to-consumer world, viewers are demanding better when it comes to TV — from the user experience to their content choices to the advertising,” said Hulu CEO Randy Freer.
