Agents of SHIELD's Ghost Rider Effect Involves This Silly Head Piece

By Katharine Trendacosta on at

In Marvel’s featurette on the visual effects that make Ghost Rider’s flaming skull, even Gabriel Luna seems aware of how hilarious this looks. On the other hand, it’s a practical effect that flickers just like real flames would, and reflects off the jacket properly. Being Ghost Rider isn’t all glamour, apparently.

There’s a lot that’s interesting in this three-minute clip, including the details that VFX supervisor Mark Kolpack has added. But mainly, we’re here for Luna with dots all over his face and LEDs attached to his head.
