Based on the Marvel superheros of the same name, Cloak and Dagger follows Tyrone Johnson (Cloak) and Tandy Bowen (Dagger), two teenagers who acquired superpowers together.
It looks like their new show will follow the two heroes years after the incident which gave them their superpowers. You can see shots of them escaping and hiding, and also brief glimpses of their powers in action. Their powers are designed to work together in tandem, and the two will apparently struggle through the minefields of teenagedom and a relationship with each other as they adapt to their superpowered capabilities.
Watch the trailer here:
It does all look a bit Freeform-y, but Marvel has mostly done a good job with the shows they throw themselves behind. I’m sure this trailer will upset some people. It’s really unavoidable. We’ll just have to wait and see how it all plays out in the end. Optimism, people, optimism! If DC can do entertaining TV on the CW, than Marvel can do the same on Freeform.
There is a wait ahead for fans to chew on this, as Cloak and Dagger is not set to debut until 2018. It stars Olivia Holt, Aubrey Joseph, Andrea Roth, Gloria Reuben, James Saito, and J.D. Evermore.
