Marvel’s Cloak and Dagger Season 1: Explaining the Connection

Posted by April 28, 2018 Comment

A new trailer has been released for the upcoming Marvel’s Cloak and Dagger series that is set to premiere in June on Freeform. The trailer gives us a bit more information on their powers. Where we’ve seen Dagger using light knives and Cloak being able to teleport, the new tailer gives us an idea of how their powers work when they come in contact with other people. Cloak gets to see peoples greatest fears while Dagger sees their hopes. What seems interesting to me is that we see Tyrone disappear in the middle of a brightly lit alley. The way his powers worked in the comics involved him going into the darkness of his cloak, like stepping into the shadows. We really haven’t seen him with any kind of cloak so far.

Cloak and Dagger focuses on two teenagers from very different backgrounds, Tandy Bowen (Olivia Holt) and Tyrone Johnson (Aubrey Joseph), who acquire superpowers and meet by chance, soon realizing that their powers work better when they are together. The series also stars J.D. Evermore, Miles Mussenden, Gloria Reuben, Andrea Roth, and James Saito.

The series is based on the comic character created by Bill Mantlo and Ed Hannigan in the pages of Peter Parker, the Spectacular Spider-Man #64 in 1982. Cloak and Dagger is slated to be 10 episodes long.

Marvel’s Cloak and Dagger premiers June 7th on Freeform.
