I reported way back in April that Cloak and Dagger had been greenlit. Look its right here. Well finally we know who our two stars will be. Olivia Holt (Kickin It, The Standoff) will be Tandy Bowen a.k.a. Dagger and Aubrey Joseph (Run All Night, Death Pact) will play Tyrone Johnson a.k.a. Cloak. Executive Producer Joe Pokaski says,
“The characters of Tandy and Tyrone have always stood out to me ever since I first met them in the pages of Marvel comics when I was a boy. When Olivia and Aubrey read for the roles, these characters leapt off the page. We’re so excited to see what these talented young actors bring to the Marvel Universe.“
Jeph Loeb, head of Marvel Television and Executive Producer says.
“Marvel is delighted to have found our Cloak and Dagger. Olivia Holt and Aubrey Joseph encompass the true essence of the characters and we are excited for the audience to see them in these roles.”
I’m glad to see these very different characters with some very rich history finally get some time on a screen even if it is ABC Freeform.
