We have been treated to a range of Marvel series from Agents of SHIELD and Agent Carter on ABC, to Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage on Netflix, and now ABC’s Freeform is throwing its’ hat in the ring with a series based on the popular characters, Cloak and Dagger.
According to Production Weekly, the project has the working title of ‘Shadows’ and this is what it is currently being referred to as. In the comics, Cloak and Dagger are known for working in the shadows so that is how the title fits into the series as a whole.
The official synopsis states:
“This exciting new series is an adaptation of the beloved Marvel characters aimed squarely at young adults. This live-action interracial romance follows Tandy Bowen and Tyrone Johnson, two teenagers from very different backgrounds, who find themselves burdened and awakened to newly acquired superpowers while falling in love. Tandy can emit light daggers and Tyrone has the ability to engulf others in darkness. They quickly learn they are better together than apart—but their feelings for each other make their already complicated world even more challenging.”
It will be helmed by Joe Pokaski (from Daredevil) and no castings have been made yet.
Marvel’s Cloak and Dagger is expected to air on ABC’s Freeform in 2018.
