Marvel’s “Cloak & Dagger” Official Trailer (2018)

Though we have quite a bit of time before this new Marvel Studios show becomes available, the first trailer for the currently in production “Cloak & Dagger” series has been released. The show will air on the Freeform Network in 2018 and you can check it out below. I’ll chime in afterwards with some thoughts.

The Premise:
Tandy Bowen and Tyrone Johnson, two teenagers from different backgrounds, acquire superpowers while forming a romantic relationship. They soon realize that their powers work better when they are together, “but their feelings for each other make their already complicated world even more challenging.” (thanks Wiki).

The Cast/Characters:
Olivia Holt as Tandy Bowen/Dagger
Aubrey Joseph as Tyrone Johnson/Cloak
Andrea Roth as Melissa Bowen
Gloria Reuben as Adina Johnson
Miles Mussenden as Michael Johnson
Carl Lundstedt as Liam
James Saito as Bernard Sanjo
J.D. Evermore as Connors

PiercingMetal Thoughts: So what I’ve learned is that Freeform Network is a fully owned network by Disney and its aimed at the younger viewers so that must be why they chose to put this “Cloak & Dagger” show on this as opposed to say something like Netflix. Speaking frankly, I’ve liked these two characters since the first appeared in a title called “Peter Parker, The Spectacular Spider-Man” as they were rather different and super mysterious. I’ve added the character link in Wikipedia down below for you to learn more about the characters. What I love about this is the fact that this expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe even more and the trailer does look pretty good. The characters were runaways and facing some tough odds before their powers manifest and my hope is that we get some super effects, especially with Cloak and how his darkness works against the forces of evil. What do you readers think about this trailer. Let me know in the comments section below.
