Marvel Television will expand its ever growing list of shows with Cloak and Dagger, and the show just found its stars.
Olivia Holt and Aubrey Joseph have won the leading roles in Cloak and Dagger, which will tell a coming of age story based on the Marvel duo. In Marvel comics, Tandy Bowen (Dagger) and Tyrone Johnson (Cloak) are young teens from different backgrounds who bond over new found abilities. Bowen has the power to throw light daggers, while Johnson can surround enemies in darkness. The characters are also one of Marvel’s best couples, a relationship the series will likely develop.
“The characters of Tandy and Tyrone have always stood out to me ever since I first met them in the pages of Marvel comics when I was a boy. When Olivia and Aubrey read for the roles, these characters leapt off the page. We’re so excited to see what these talented young actors bring to the Marvel Universe,” says showrunner Joe Pokaski.
While the Cloak and Dagger series doesn’t have an official release date, this casting suggests that the next Marvel show will land later this year.
