Cloak & Dagger Trailer Shows Series' Potential
Apr 26, 2017
In case you missed it, Marvel and Freeform released the first trailer to Cloak & Dagger.
In the trailer, we see the tumultuous lives of Tandy Bowen and Tyrone Johnson play out before they get their superpowers. Though they lead very different lives, it appears they're more than kindred spirits, tied together by fate and their powers. With the family drama shown in the trailer, it's no surprise this series ended up on Freeform. We only see a glimpse of Tandy making one of her light daggers and Tyrone in his titular cloak, so hopefully we'll see more of their powers in the trailers to come.
Cloak (Tyrone "Ty" Johnson) and Dagger (Tandy Bowen) originally appeared in Peter Parker, the Spectacular Spider-Man #64 in 1982 by Bill Mantlo and Ed Hannigan. Unlike other series, the Cloak & Dagger comic rarely featured costumed super villains and instead focused on Cloak and Dagger's quest to end the drug trade--the series frequently explored the issues of being a vigilante.
Starring Olivia Holt (Tandy Bowen), Aubrey Joseph (Tyrone Johnson), Andrea Roth (Melissa Brown), Gloria Reuben (Adina Johnson), Miles Mussenden (Michael Johnson), Carl Lundstedt (Liam), James Saito (Bernard Sanjo), and JD Evermore (Connors), Cloak & Dagger premieres on Freeform in 2018.
