Ghost Rider might not have his own Hulu series anymore, but a character that first appeared in the pages of his comics does. Not only is Marvel’s Helstrom series still on track, casting has begun. The actress who will play the lead has a name that you have to see to believe.
Deadline reports that Elizabeth Marvel (yep, you read that right) will play Victoria Helstrom who has been institutionalized for 20 years and wants to repair her relationship with her children. Tom Austen (The Royals) and Sydney Lemmon (Fear The Walking Dead) will play those children, Daimon and Ana Helstrom respectively. Ariana Guerra (Raising Dion), Robert Wisdom (Ballers), June Carryl (Mindhunter) and Alain Uy (The Passage) round out the cast.
Paul Zbyszewski will serve as showrunner and executive produce with Marvel TV boss Jeph Loeb. The first season is set for 10 episodes. No release date has been given by Hulu.
