About a year ago, Disney greenlit the first live-action series based off of Marvel‘s Cloak and Dagger comics to run on Freeform, formerly ABC Family. Despite its 2018 premiere date, the first trailer has debuted and shows the origin of Tandy (Olivia Holt) and Tyrone (Aubrey Joseph), a.k.a. Cloak and Dagger.
As far as trailers go, this one is pretty basic. It gives the audience a good idea of who these characters are, how they meet, and where they’re headed. Fans of the comic series may have thought that we’d be seeing the older versions of these characters, like in the comics. However, the teen angsty, coming-of-age kind of story fits right in with the demographic on Freeform.
Perhaps we’ll get deeper into their dark tale as the series goes on, but from the trailer we can tell that at least part of the season will be about them discovering their powers.
Cloak and Dagger is slated to premiere in 2018.
