Marvel’s Cloak and Dagger is set to debut in June on Freeform and we finally have a good look at the series thanks to this new trailer. It introduces ambitious student Tyrone Johnson and teen runaway Tandy Bowen. Together, their powers magnify. And, it seems, their comic book mutant origin is getting a supernatural twist in the upcoming television series.
The show stars Olivia Holt and Aubrey Joseph star as Tandy and Tyrone, whose apparently mystical connection will bring them closer together even as it seems to pull them apart. Marvel TV boss Jeph Loeb said the show will attempt to be the first show to directly address a superhero romance as oppose to it being a subplot like on other shows.
Created by Bill Mantlo and Ed Hannigan, Cloak and Dagger were a pair of mutant runaways whose attempts to survive led them into conflict with everyone from Spider-Man to the X-Men. The television series will introduce parents for both characters, setting it apart somewhat from its Marvel roots. But thanks to Freeform’s teen focus, the show will appeal to Marvel’s original audience.
Cloak and Dagger premieres June 7th on Freeform.
