We haven’t had much in terms of promotion for Marvel‘s newer television series over on Freeform. But the teens of Cloak & Dagger are finally getting some due time in this new trailer. Their lives are nearly opposite of each other but their similarities will be bringing them together. The light and the dark will entwine just as their destinies will soon be as they come together with their new found superpowers.
The most striking difference in this trailer is the switch of the character’s lives. In the comics, Tyrone “Ty” Johnson (Aubrey Joseph), aka Cloak, was teen who ran away from home after he was unable to prevent his friend from being shot by police. Tandy Bowen (Olivia Holt), aka Dagger, had come from a wealthy background with a supermodel mother. But in the show, their lives seem to be switched with Cloak coming from wealth and Dagger being poor, having to steal for money. It’s a nice change.
In addition, the duo has been relocated from New York to New Orleans. We can see Voodoo shops and beautiful monuments that are prominent in the city. It will give the teens the ability shine without thinking of the repercussions of the bigger MCU. Speaking of that, the show currently isn’t tied to the bigger universe just yet and there are no crossover plans. I just can’t help but picture the Runaways teaming up with Cloak & Dagger. We’ll have to keep our fingers crossed. In the mean time, I’m excited to see what this show has to offer!
Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think. Be sure to come back to Geek Girl Authority for more Marvel TV news.
Cloak & Dagger is the story of Tandy Bowen (Olivia Holt) and Tyrone Johnson (Aubrey Joseph) – two teenagers from very different backgrounds, who find themselves burdened and awakened to newly acquired superpowers which are mysteriously linked to one another. 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.
Cloak & Dagger will air on Freeform on June 7th.
