Marvel Television and Freeform have released the first trailer for the upcoming superhero TV series, Cloak & Dagger. The surprise trailer gives us our first look at the series, as well as the two leads Olivia Holt and Aubrey Joseph.
Cloak & Dagger is the latest Marvel property to land on television, joining the likes of Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and Agents of SHIELD. The trailer does a great job of introducing the concept of the show and the characters while not giving away anything major. Cloak & Dagger surprisingly looks very similar to the Netflix side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, even though it will air on Freeform.
“Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger” is the story of Tandy Bowen (Olivia Holt) and Tyrone Johnson (Aubrey Joseph) – two teenagers from very different backgrounds, who find themselves burdened and awakened to newly acquired superpowers which are mysteriously linked to one another. Tandy can emit light daggers and Tyrone has the ability to engulf others in darkness. They quickly learn they are better together than apart, but their feelings for each other make their already complicated world even more challenging. The network has ordered 10 one-hour episodes slated to debut early 2018. “Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger” stars Olivia Holt, Aubrey Joseph, Andrea Roth, Gloria Reuben, Miles Mussenden, Carl Lundstedt, James Saito and J.D. Evermore. The series is co-produced by Marvel Television and ABC Signature Studios. Joe Pokaski (“Underground,” “Heroes”) serves as showrunner and executive producer; Jeph Loeb (“Marvel’s The Punisher,” “Marvel’s The Defenders”), Marvel’s head of Television, and Jim Chory (“Marvel’s The Punisher,” “Marvel’s The Defenders”) also serve as executive producers. Gina Prince-Bythewood (“Love & Basketball”) directed the first episode.
Cloak & Dagger will premiere on Freeform in 2018!
