Cloak and Dagger is the first true teen drama of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Naturally, the best home for it would be Freeform (formerly ABC Family).
The show has been slated for a 2018 premiere, which is pretty exciting. Filming has already commenced for Cloak and Dagger, which we received a straight-to-series order last year.
Joe Pokaski (Underground) is to the showrunner with Marvel’s Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory to executive produce. Gina Prince-Bythewood (Love and Basketball) will direct the pilot and is also set as an EP for the show.
The series will follow Tandy Bowen/Dagger (Olivia Holt) and Tyrone Johnson/Cloak (Aubrey Joseph), two teenagers with developing superpowers who find love with each other. Tandy can emit light daggers while Tyrone can cloak others in darkness. Normally, the pair are more associated with the X-Men. But well mutants aren’t a thing in the MCU! Soooooo I guess enhanced is the term. Or are they Inhumans?
Anyway! Time for the real news of the day.
Today, the first trailer has been released. It’s really goddamn amazing.
Like wow Freeform. It looks like your going for more of a Netflix show kind of vibe with this. I dig it.
Even though we see only brief interactions with Tandy and Tyrone, I definitely do see the chemistry between them. Again with the Roxxon Corp though, I feel like they’re there but we haven’t done anything interesting with them.
Based on this trailer though? I’m definitely planning on tuning in come 2018.
