We’re getting to that point where even the more obscure comic book characters are getting their own television shows. Following the likes of Luke Cage and Jessica Jones, the ABC affiliated channel, Freeform has dropped the latest trailer for the teen drama / superhero show, Cloak & Dagger!
Well, this is pretty cool. The show has an incredibly grounded feel, even more so than any of The Defenders‘ shows. The teen drama is turned way up high and the superhero-ness feels almost like an after thought, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing! Check out the synopsis:
“Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger is the story of Tandy Bowen (Olivia Holt) and Tyrone Johnson (Aubrey Joseph) – two teenagers from very different backgrounds, who find themselves burdened and awakened to newly acquired superpowers which are mysteriously linked to one another. 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.”
I don’t know about you, but I’m keen. It seems to forego the gloss of other shows like Teen Wolf and The Vampire Diaries, shows that I find difficult to get into. Hopefully, this tone keeps up when the show debuts on Freeform in early 2018!
