More Marvel for your TV in the form of Cloak & Dagger

She can make daggers with light, he can engulf you in darkness. They are Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger.

Marvel is continually expanding its universe which exists as two separate entities. The Marvel Cinematic Universe is exclusively for all the big budget films and Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

A parallel universe exists for all the television shows exclusive to Netflix. They are Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist. Later this year will see those four team up and become The Defenders.

Somewhere amongst all this, a new show will air in 2018 entitled Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger. This is the story of two people, Tandy and Tyrone.

Tandy can produce daggers made from light and Tyrone can engulf people in darkness. They discover they work better together as a team but their feelings for each other will only complicate their relationship.

You may have guessed that this show is aimed at the teenage/young adult market. Ten episodes have been ordered for an early 2018 start and they will be shown on the Freeform network (formerly ABC Family).

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.
