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…).
Most non-comics fans have no idea who Danny Rand/Iron Fist, but Netflix has taken a few moments to introduce everyone to the character in a new video, quaintly entitled, I Am Danny Rand. It’s a pretty good overview.
Freeform and Marvel have announced that Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger has added Andrea Roth (Rescue Me), James Saito (Life of Pi), Gloria Reubens (Mr. Robot), Miles Mussenden (Bloodline), Carl Lundstedt (Conviction), and J.D. Evermore (True Detective) to its cast.
Roth will play Tandy Bowen’s mom; Melissa; Saito will play Dr. Bernard Sanjo, an emotional cornerstone is Tyrone Johnson’s life.
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.
Thanks to an agreement between DisneyIABC, IMAX and Marvel, an Inhumans TV series will premiere on ABC in Fall 2017 – following the two-part series premiere’s two-week run in IMAX theaters at the beginning of September.
The two-part premiere will be shot exclusively with IMAX cameras.
