After years of waiting since its development announcement for ABC Family (now Freeform), Cloak & Dagger is officially premiering tonight as Ty and Tandy join the Marvel Cinematic Universe at last! Back at this year’s WonderCon, The Marvel Report had the opportunity to chat with the cast and team of the new Marvel series as we got to learn more about Freeform’s first dive into the Marvel world.
We spoke with director Gina Prince-Bythewood, who helmed the very first episode of Cloak & Dagger! Throughout the interview, she talks about landing the opportunity to direct the series premiere and help bring these Marvel characters to life.
“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 as Ty Johnson/Cloak and Olivia Holt as Tandy Bowen/Dagger, premieres tonight at 8 PM on Freeform!
