Upcoming Freeform series Marvel's Cloak & Dagger gets a new full-length trailer teasing the TV show following the eponymous Marvel Comics superheroes. Marvel TV has been expanding the small screen side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe ever since Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. debuted on ABC in 2013. Now, the TV side of the MCU spans multiple shows across ABC, Netflix, and Hulu - and will soon have a series on Freeform. The younger skewing network is under the same Disney umbrella as Marvel Studios and is gearing up to launch Cloak & Dagger this summer.
The premiere date for Cloak & Dagger was revealed with a sneak peek earlier this year, while additional teasers have shown off the titular characters. The series follows Tandy Bowen aka. Dagger (Olivia Holt) and Tyrone Johnson aka. Cloak (Aubrey Joseph) as they discover their powers and grow closer to each other. Based on the Marvel comics of the same name, the teenage-focused drama is aimed at the network's younger audience. Now, a new full-length trailer for Cloak & Dagger offers a fresh look at Freeform's first Marvel TV series.
Marvel released the new trailer after teasing it yesterday with a poster for Cloak & Dagger that put the focus on Tandy and Tyrone using their superpowers. Tyrone is able to engulf others in darkness and transport them to/through the Darkforce dimension, while Tandy wields light daggers, hence their superhero monikers of Cloak and Dagger. Watch the new trailer above.
As with the previous teasers and trailers for Cloak & Dagger, this new video shows Tandy and Tyrone demonstrating their powers. This trailer, though, shows more of a progression from the two discovering their abilities to beginning to master them. In fact, Tandy suggests at one point in the trailer the they should both test their limits. The powers themselves look good on screen, and will hopefully be utilized a lot throughout season 1. Fellow young adult-geared Marvel TV series Runaways was more of a slow burn in terms of the core group discovering and using their powers. However, by the looks of this trailer, it seems Cloak & Dagger will focus a great deal on the heroes' powers throughout the series.
The other ominous aspect of this new Cloak & Dagger trailer is the voiceover mentioning "the divine pairing," insinuating that Tandy and Tyrone are this duo - and that one will live, while one will die. While it seems incredibly unlikely Cloak & Dagger would kill off one of its titular characters in the show's first season, the voiceover does set the stage for at least one of the teenagers to be in mortal danger. Whether it's the always-on-the-run Tandy or the trying-to-be-perfect Tyrone remains to be seen.
Still, the Cloak & Dagger trailer offers a new look at Freeform's upcoming Marvel series and is sure to get fans hyped for the show's summer premiere. It's unclear whether Marvel TV has another hit on their hands with Cloak & Dagger, though early reactions were incredibly positive, but fans will get to see the series for themselves early in June.
Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger premieres Thursday June 7 at 8pm ET on Freeform.
