After incredibly long periods of silence for both Runaways and Cloak and Dagger, information seems to be finally arriving. Both series were announced last year but little information has been revealed on either front. We do know however, the former will be released on Hulu, while the latter on Freeform.
Yet we now know the production titles and dates for both series. Runaways, will go under the title of Rugrats and begin filming in LA in February. Cloak and Dagger, will go under the name Shadows and begin filming in New Orleans on February 15th. Considering the incredibly close production start dates, we can likely expect casting and other information in the weeks to come. Also with filming beginning in February, we would likely see both series either late 2017-mid 2018. Cloak and Dagger has also been revealed to have a budget of $42 million, which is about the same as the budget for Marvel’s Netflix shows.
We already know a bit more about Cloak and Dagger, as Disney had previously revealed a synopsis and logo for the series (which can be seen below); but next to nothing is known about the Runaways series.
Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger follows Tandy Bowen and Tyronne Johnson, two teenagers from very different backgrounds, who find themselves burdened by and awakened to newly acquired super powers while falling in love. Tandy can emit light daggers and Tyrone has the ability to engulf others in darkness. They quickly learn that they are better together than apart–but their feelings for each other make their already complicated world even more challenging.
