You can read the show’s synopsis below:
“Marvel’s Cloak and Dagger” is an adaptation of the beloved Marvel characters whose story is aimed squarely at young adults. This live-action interracial romance follows Tandy Bowen and Tyrone Johnson, two teenagers from very different backgrounds, who find themselves burdened and awakened to newly acquired superpowers while falling in love. 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.”
Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger, starring Aubrey Joseph (The Night Of) as Ty Johnson/Cloak, Olivia Holt (Kickin’ It) as Tandy Bowen/Dagger, Andrea Roth (Blue Bloods) as Melissa Bowen, Gloria Reuben (ER) as Adina Johnson, Miles Mussenden (Bloodline) as Michael Johnson, James Saito (Life of Pi) as Dr. Bernard Sanjo, J.D. Evermore (True Detective) as Detective Connors and Carl Lundstedt (Conviction) as Liam.
Underground’s Joe Pokaski has been tapped as the show-runner and executive producer on the upcoming series. Beyond the Lights’ Gina Prince-Bythewood directed the pilot.
Cloak & Dagger is set to premiere on Freeform in January 2018.

10 Marvel Shows We’d Like to See Made
As the “golden age of television” continues, one genre that has been on the uptick has been superhero TV shows. The CW almost has every day on lock with many DC Comics-centric TV shows like Supergirl, The Flash, Arrow, Legends of Tomorrow, as well as shows like iZombie, and the upcoming Riverdale. Other networks such as AMC and Fox (among others) have Preacher and The Walking Dead, Gotham, and Lucifer, respectively.
Marvel has been diversifying their portfolio as well. When they first introduced Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., they only slightly-connected their television universe with their cinematic universe. While recent corporate changes in their business structure have distanced their properties from each other, they still maintain a continuity. Shows like Agent Carter as well as the many Netflix shows (Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, the upcoming Iron Fist, The Punisher, and The Defenders) all have events connected to their big screen counterparts. Currently, Marvel has Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. and The Inhumans (coming next year) on ABC along with Damage Control (TBD) while Cloak and Dagger (airing on Freeform next year), and Runaways (developed for Hulu) are in development.
With such a large assortment of comic books and comic book characters, Marvel has barely scratched the surface. Here are a few comic book characters that could definitely use their own show…
