Aubrey Joseph is Cloak/Tyrone Johnson and Olivia Holt is Dagger/Tandy Bowden in Freeform’s upcoming new TV Show Cloak and Dagger. While Cloak can access the Darkforce dimension to teleport himself and others, Dagger can create her namesake of purelight to pierce through anything and purge addictions. The show will also supposedly explore the romantic element between the two.
Behind the scenes photography reveal a grounded, down to earth aesthetic where the mutant kids will battle criminals festering the neighborhood. The show will air every thursday sometime in 2018. The production was kept low key. There wasn’t much media coverage either. We hope it doesn’t stay the same after it airs.
J.D Evermore, who portrays Detective Connors in the show broke the news about the series wrapping up production in Instagram. His posts may have been deleted, but our friendly folks at CBR were kind enough to break the news to everyone before it did.
Evermore responded to comments by his fans on his posts to reveal Cloak and Dagger will air on Freeform in early 2018. Claiming he isn’t aware of the exact date, its clear it was all guesswork on his behalf. The actual air date is yet to be revealed until an official announcement embraces the news headlines. Until a legit piece of intel confirms the news, like Evermore all we can do is guess and wait.
Freeform’s other Marvel project , The New Warriors – a sitcom featuring Milana Vayntrub as Squirrel Girl was dropped by the network. Scheduling issues made Marvel look elsewhere for giving away the rights to the Superhero team.
Sad that you have to wait until next year to see the mutant couple take down villlains? Don’t be. Atleast they were lucky enough to wrap up production. Remember the Agents of Shield spinoff – Marvel’s Most Wanted with Nick Blood as Lance Hunter and Adrianne Palicki as Bobbi Morse. Unfortunatley a badly recieved pilot episode led to its untimely death. Atleast Cloak and Dagger now got a full series under their belt.
Psyched for the upcoming show on Freeform? You are ceratinly not alone. Welcome to the club 😉
