Marvel's Cloak And Dagger Gets A New Trailer
Marvel has certainly spent the past couple of years getting down, dirty and gritty with its various Netflix series (the latest of which, the crossover event The Defenders, is coming this summer). It seems that now they're going the Young Adult route with their new series, Cloak And Dagger, for which a new trailer has been released.
Based on the comic of the same name, the focus is on a gradually growing romance between Tandy Bowen/Dagger (Olivia Holt) and Tyrone Johnson/Cloak (Aubrey Joseph), who come from extremely different backgrounds. They're initially drawn together as they develop superpowers, romance following shortly thereafter, but, notes part of the official description, "They quickly learn they are better together than apart — but their feelings for each other make their already complicated world even more challenging." Damn those feelings!
Tandy has the power to unleash light daggers, while Tryone is able to engulf others in complete darkness.
Other cast members include Andrea Roth as Tandy's mother, Melissa; Gloria Reuben as Tyrone's mother, Adina; Miles Mussenden as Tyrone's father, Michael; Carl Lundstedt as Tandy's criminal boyfriend (uh-oh, romantic tension, here we come!), Liam; James Salto as Bernard Sanjo, a friend of Tyrone's; and J.D. Evermore as Connors, described as a detective "with an intimidating secret" (intriguing). The series is created by Joe Pokaski, who served as a writer and executive story editor on Tim Kring's Heroes.
Cloak And Dagger represents just one of several series from Marvel titles expected to be on television in the near future, including the expected-to-return Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D., season two of Legion, The Defenders, the untitled X-Men TV pilot, Hulu's Runaways and Inhumans (which will be making its debut on IMAX cinema screens this September).
