Marvel’s ‘Cloak and Dagger’ TV Series Officially Coming to … Freeform?

Quote:
Not content to launch new superhero properties on ABC or Netflix, Marvel is officially branching out to Freeform for a long-awaited debut. A Cloak and Dagger series is officially in the works, ordered to series at the former ABC Family for its title heroes.

According to Variety, Marvel’s Cloak and Dagger has an official straight-to-series order, though no writer is officially attached to the so-called “superhero love story.” ABC Family had been developing the series as far back as 2011, then said to set in a post-Katrina New Orleans.

So reads the synopsis, based on title characters Tandy Bowen and Tyrone Johnson:

The live-action interracial romance follows the duo, 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.

It remains unclear if Cloak and Dagger will be set in the explicit Marvel cinematic universe as all the other TV properties, though if nether ABC nor Netflix can forge much direct connection with its big-screen counterparts, it may not necessarily matter.

Cloak and Dagger were surely ripe for their own series, but will Marvel fans follow all the way to Freeform for a more YA feel?

...will anyone actually watch it if it's on that channel? This seems like one of those things that people will easily forget.

I enjoyed Shadow Hunters for the most part and it's on Freeform. Not as good as the novels but adaptions rarely are...

MARVEL STUDIOS CHARACTERS WILL APPEAR IN "SPIDER-MAN" SOLO FILM, FEIGE CONFIRMS
Quote:
"He is in the universe now, and the fun of the universe is that characters go back and forth," Feige told Entertainment Weekly. However, he didn't offer any clues as to who might join Spidey in his solo film; he simply confirmed that MCU characters would appear.

ECCC: BENDIS 'UNOFFICIALLY' ANNOUNCES JESSICA JONES REUNION WITH GAYDOS & MACK
Quote:
It sounds like that "Alias" follow-up is pretty much a certainty at this point -- and when it drops, expect the original creative team of writer Brian Michael Bendis, interior artist Michael Gaydos and cover artist David Mack back on the book.

During Marvel's Next Big Thing panel at Emerald City Comicon, Bendis all-but-confirmed that a continuation of his Jessica Jones saga is in the pipeline. When asked about a potential "Alias" sequel series at some point, Bendis said, "This isn't an official announcement, but I'll tell you, in lieu of it -- yes."

Bendis revealed that he's waiting for Michael Gaydos to finish a graphic novel, as he thinks that if Jessica Jones were to return to "do her thing," it should be with the original team -- including David Mack on covers.

"After 'Civil War II' you can look for a return. I genuinely think you'll be surprised by what we do in the first issue. I pitched it actually to Melissa Rosenberg, who runs the TV show, at WonderCon and she said, 'Really?' But wait for the official announcement, because this is not it."

The unofficial announcement comes after a new Jessica Jones-led series was teased at C2E2 last month, when a fan asked Tom Brevoort about the possibility of a new book with the character. Now we know for sure it'll directly follow "Alias," and not release as "The Pulse" or as a "Jessica Jones" TV tie-in.

I won't be seeing Captain America: Civil War until Saturday, May 7. So yeah, I'm jealous of West too.

I'm glad to hear that Spidey is being well received. However, I'm sure Sony is more than thrilled to hear that news. Sony better not screw up the character again.

Details for Thompson’s part have not been revealed, but she could be the female lead as Natalie Portman, who was the female lead as Dr. Jane Foster in the previous two Thor installments, is not returning.

Heh, if Natalie Portman isn't coming back, and they want to recast the same role, they should just get Keira Knightly. I can barely tell those two apart.

LOL! True dat! It's a much closer resemblance than Terrance Howard and Don Cheadle.

Personally, I hope there are no scenes in Thor 3 that take place on midguard (earth) with the exception of the Hulk leaving it.

I find it amusing that whoever was casting for Phantom Menace noticed the same thing, since Knightley was cast as one of Padme's decoys.

I mean they took it to a whole 'nother level there and had Portman dub all Knightley's lines as well.

Anyways can't say I'm sad to see Dr. Jane Foster disappear from the movies...she never actually did anything. Of course I'd also be ok with not seeing another Thor movie so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
