Marvel has just released the trailer for Cloak and Dagger, the television adaptation of the classic comic book property due out in 2018 on Freeform. Cloak And Dagger reportedly has an order for a ten episode first season, and Freeform is hoping it will be its first big hit to connect with its millennial target audience. Secret Life of Bees director Gina Prince-Bythewood is set to direct, and Olivia Holt and Aubrey Joseph star in the title roles. The show will focus on a romance between the titular characters, rather than a friendship as in the comics, with a Disney exec Mark Endemano comparing it to Romeo & Juliet.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
