The first trailer for “Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger” has been released, giving fans their first look at Marvel’s newest TV superheroes.
The new Freeform show, starring Olivia Holt as Tandy Bowen (a.k.a. Dagger) and Aubrey Joseph as Tyrone Johnson (a.k.a. Cloak), “Cloak & Dagger” marks Marvel’s first foray into full-on teen soap drama.
If the trailer is anything to go by, “Cloak & Dagger” looks to be of a piece with Marvel’s other shows and strikingly different from their ABC offerings. Initial thoughts expected the series to be more comical and broad like the DC television shows, especially as it is attempting to capture the same audience, but it looks grounded and character driven like Marvel’s Netflix offerings. The appearance of the Roxxon Corp. sign signals that perhaps there is a larger universe to be seen and established here and also tips its hat to the Ultimate Universe incarnations of the characters.
“Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger” will air on Freeform (formerly ABC Family) in early 2018. Watch the full trailer above.
