I wonder if this will be canon with the MCU.

Marvel's Cloak and Dagger TV Show Synopsis Released

 

This exciting new series is an adaptation of the beloved Marvel characters 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.

 

Yuck. :P

You could start the story with them as adults and show flashbacks to their origins as 16 and 17 year olds. If they followed the original source material, which would have been great, it would have to be adult oriented (i.e. their war against drugs, killing the scientist that created the sythetic heroin, etc.) and on Netflix, Cinemax or AMC. Personally, I think it would have fit way better with the Marvel "war on crime" slate on Netflix with Daredevil/Punisher/Elektra/and hopefully Moon Knight. That could have led to some great crossovers between shows, including a play on the arc where they work with Spider-man to stop the Punisher's assassination attempt on the Kingpin.

I don't see this show being a huge hit, it is on the ABC Family channel after all.

Big hit is relative. Do I see it being as good as Daredevil - no. But I see it being more in the category as IZombie which is still good in its own way. I'm not even sure which direction they will go with the show but as they say - any publicity is good publicity.

My daughter who is almost 13 says the show Pretty Little Liars is a huge hit with the teen crowd and she likes Shadowhunters. At least the channel has a teen following which will bode well in the future in terms of Cloak and Dagger being relevant for awhile.

That whole chanel is geared to the 12-16 year old market so I can see why the 18 year and older crowds would not like it.

It does not need to be a hit, it just needs to be aired so we can all cash in on our stashes of PPSM #64s. lol

Hot off the heels of the announcement a few days ago, Marvel has unveiled the logo for their latest TV series, starring young heroes Cloak and Dagger.

 

Freeform (which, for those of you who don't know, is really just ABC family rebranded under a different name to target adolescent audiences) has unveiled the logo for its upcoming series based on fan-favourite teenage heroes Tandy Bowen and Tyrone Johnson.
