Ghost Rider featuring in Avengers: Secret Wars has been heavily speculated for a long time. As has been reported by X (formerly Twitter) user MyTimeToShineHello (@MyTimeToShineH), Marvel Studios Head Kevin Feige is also considering this.

The presence of many heroes and villains alike creates a perfect context for Ghost Rider to appear. And given the character’s popularity amongst fans, it is expected that Feige would not pass up on the opportunity.

In classic Marvel fashion, the exact details are shrouded in secrecy. No official announcement has been made, so everything needs to be taken with a pinch of salt.
