One of the upcoming shows from Marvel Television is Cloak & Dagger which will be coming to Freeform next year, starring Aubrey Joseph as Ty Johnson/Cloak and Olivia Holt as Tandy Bowen/Dagger. Recently Joseph shared two photos of him and Holt together looking absolutely adorable together as production is coming up.
This will be the live-action debut of Ty and Tandy as they join the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Beyond the Lights’ Gina Prince-Bythewood has been tapped to direct the first episode of the series. Production is said to be starting sometime this month in New Orleans under the code name Shadows.
“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 and Dagger” is a co-production of Marvel Television and ABC Signature Studios.”
