Agents of SHIELD returns for a fourth season on September 20, and it’s all set to get into a more mystical side of Marvel’s cinematic universe as the movies prepare to do the same. Ghost Rider is on the way to join the show’s cast, and now, Entertainment Weekly has brought us our first look at Gabriel Luna in the role of Roberto Reyes.

SHIELD executive producer Jed Whedon told EW, “As always, we are going to put our own spin on the character. We are staying true to the comics in the places where we feel like it’s really important—we love the character’s family dynamic and the East L.A. kid in him.” Luna will bring to life the Ghost Rider introduced in 2014’s All-New Ghost Rider, and leaked videos from the set of SHIELD point to —as well as show his car in action.

Just how full-on magical we’re going to get, even with a person literally possessed by a ghost, remains to be seen, though. Thor’s inclusion in the Avengers team has already prompted some explanation for how the mystical meets the scientific in the MCU, and executive producer Maurissa Tancharoen told EW,  “Our team will definitely be trying to science this guy with the flaming skull.”
