The upcoming Marvel and Freeform series, Cloak & Dagger, about characters Tandy and Tyrone is off the ground and running as Marvel just announced that they cast the lead characters in the soon to be released television series based on the popular comic book series.
Disney alum, Olivia Holt (Kickin’ It, I Didn’t Do It) will star as Tandy Bowen a.k.a Dagger, a once privileged girl whose life is changed when her family is destroyed in a storm. While Aubrey Joseph (The Night Of) will star as Tyrone Johnson a.k.a Cloak, who after everything was taken away from him, lives a closed up and sheltered life…until the two meet.
Joe Pokaski, the showrunner and Executive Producer said about the casting, “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.”
Marvel’s Cloak and Dagger is set to air on Freeform in 2018.
