We’re late to the party, but just in case you missed this news, Cloak & Dagger is headed to TV with the company Freeform. You may have also known that this was happening but at the end of last week, we were gifted with the first look at the series in the form of a trailer.
DC definitely dominates the TV series market, but Marvel has slowly been making its way to the medium with Agents of SHIELD, Agent Carter… basically lots of shows containing the word “agent”. They have yet to really tackle the teen demographic specifically and are branching out to reach that audience with Cloak & Dagger.
Cloak & Dagger aka Tyrell Johnson and Tandy Bowen are definitely C-list characters from the MCU but they’ve been fan favourites for YEARS and I personally love them. The Runaways seemed (to me) like a great and natural way to kick off reaching out to a broader audience, but that’s coming to Hulu sometime in the near future and both franchises are near and dear to my heart.
Cloak/Tyrell is being played by Aubrey Joseph who’s had a few minor roles previously including HBO’s The Night Of while Dagger/Tandy is being portrayed by Olivia Holt who for a 20-year old, has a pretty extensive resume so far including credits on Ultimate Spider-Man and the short-lived TV series I Didn’t Do It, which I admittedly hadn’t heard of until just now. STILL, both of them look absolutely FANTASTIC in the trailer and I couldn’t be more excited for what’s to come.
Take a look below at the first look and share with us what you think:
