Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger won’t make it debut until next year, but Freeform has already released a teaser for the series.
As a fan of the original comic (too many years ago), I have to say that the trailer captures the essence of the comic – the duo’s situations prior to meeting each other; the hesitance as they discover their nunique bond, and, of course, their powers.
There’s even a very cool shout out to Cloak’s comics costume (blankets can do weird stuff…).
It’s taken half a decade, but Freeform has finally cast the leads for its superhero coming of age series, Cloak & Dagger.
Olivia Holt (Kickin’ It, I Didn’t Do It) will portray Tandy Bowen, a former child of privilege, and Aubrey Joseph (The Night Of) will tackle the role of Tyrone Johnson, who, like Tandy, has lost a great deal – though in an entirely different way.
Gina Prince-Bythewood (Love & Basketball) will direct the pilot.
