Geekery: First Trailer – Cloak & Dagger

The classic duo is coming to small screens next year – get a first look here!

Tyrone “Ty” Johnson and Tandy Bowen first appeared in 1982 in an issue of Spectacular Spider-Man. Since then the two have teamed up with the X-Men, the Secret Avengers, and the Secret Defenders among others. The duo will be coming to ABC’s Freeform next year in a series that is decidedly made for a young adult audience. It looks like the series will pull in some ideas from The Runaways period of their history. Take a look…

The comic confronts a lot of real world themes – race, addiction, abuse – that if handled properly could make for a good series that challenges its audience. The showrunner is Joe Pokaski – who ran the first season of Netflix’s Daredevil – so it has a leg up on the ability to handle darker themes.

Olivia Holt plays Dagger and Aubrey Joseph plays Cloak. 

The series premiers next year on Freeform.

    Fingers crossed that this will be a good series. Fingers, toes and tails crossed that Secret Warriors turns out to be a great series.

    Looks like it’s done very well, but I don’t see me watching it. Too much on the drama side for my tastes, but that’s just me, and I’m well out of that “young adult” target demographic.

    Wait, was he always naked under that cloak?

    PASS

  • Voivode Wingate

    Scoff, yeah this sort of egalitarian propaganda probably won’t sell well.

    • Brian Fox

      What does that even mean?

      What?

    • You get these are long running existing characters, right?
