Things just got more real with Dark/Web. The LRM Exclusive digital series just locked down Ghost Rider himself, Gabriel Luna, to partake in â€œZero.” Luna definitely made his presence felt on the most reason season of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and was also the star of El Rey’s Matador. His Dark/Web episode, “Zero,” is one of the anthology portions of the show.
For those confused by what we mean by â€œanthology portion,â€ itâ€™s probably best to recap the unique format that Dark/Web utilizes.
Dark/Web‘s structure combines the classic, standalone stories traditionally found in an anthology series with an overarching, season-long mystery. Each episode consists of two parts:
- A portion of the serialized tale that continues week after week.
- A stand-alone horror/sci-fi short, presented in the form of stories that Molly left behind; each written and directed by a different filmmaker.
As mentioned above, Luna will star in â€œZero,â€ frightening genre mashup from the brain of Zelda Williams (Teen Wolf). Williams wrote and directed this short, and starring alongside Luna is Hannah Marks (Dirkâ€™s Gently Holistic Detective Agency).

In addition to the photos from the short â€œZero,â€ the producers also gave us a a mysterious still from another short entitled â€œRideshare.â€ This short is being coined as a post-modern serial killer origin story, and is written and directed by Boman Modine. This is one story that’ll make you think twice before stepping into your next Uber pickup. It stars Graham Sibley (Sully), Molly Hagan (Sully), Brandon Scott (Blair Witch Project), and Rory Uphold (the forthcoming Bodied).

The official synopsis for Dark/Web is as follows:
â€œDARK/WEB follows a group of young adults navigating a near future where everythingâ€™s online and everyoneâ€™s connected, whether they like it or not. When Ethan, Sam, and James find themselves the target of cryptic emails from someone posing as their childhood friend Molly, they assume sheâ€™s been the victim of an all-too-common hack. After they reach out to alert her, however, they discover that Mollyâ€™s been missing for months and no one has any idea what happened to her. As the emails keep coming, each containing a tale written by Molly, her friends realize that this may be more than just a sick joke. Someone has hidden information in the stories, details pulled from real life that point them to people and places from Mollyâ€™s past; clues that may lead them to their missing friend.â€
