Marvel will be adding another show to their ever-growing list of superhero based TV series. Freeform, formerly an ABC partner, will be debuting its first Marvel show of the year, Cloak & Dagger. Just today, they released the first look at the show and you can tell that this may already be a highly anticipated show.
Cloak & Dagger is a coming-of-age series based on the beloved Marvel characters. Tandy Bowen (Olivia Holt) and Tyrone Johnson (Aubrey Joseph) come from starkly different backgrounds, each growing up with a secret they never dared share with another soul.
Once a privileged little girl, Tandy Bowen watched as her family was destroyed by a disastrous storm that uprooted her life. Now in her late teens, an unexpected encounter with a boy named Tyrone sparks a life changing event.
Young Tyrone Johnson wanted nothing more than to prove he was fearless. But when everything he held close was taken away, life taught Tyrone to be afraid. Now older and more sheltered, Tyrone closes himself off. But when he meets a girl named Tandy his life changes forever.
There’s not much else that can be said about the TV show, but Marvel is progressing very quickly with its TV series production, which means that the pressure will now be on DC to create more shows. Cloak & Dagger is set to premiere on Freeform somewhere in the winter of 2018.
