Cloak & Dagger

A pair of actors have been chosen to take on the title roles in the live-action TV series Cloak & Dagger, based on the Marvel comic book title and duo of the same name.

It’s been announced that Olivia Holt, a recording artist and former Disney Channel star known for Kickin’ It and I Didn’t Do It, will play Tandy Bowen. While Aubrey Joseph (The Night Of, Run All Night) is set to play Tyrone Johnson.

Here’s an official description of the show and the two main characters:

“Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger” is a coming-of-age series based on the beloved Marvel characters. Tandy Bowen and Tyrone Johnson come from starkly different backgrounds, each growing up with a secret they never dared share with another soul.

Once a privileged little girl, Tandy Bowen watched as her family was destroyed by a disastrous storm that uprooted her life. Now in her late teens, an unexpected encounter with a boy named Tyrone sparks a life changing event.

Young Tyrone Johnson wanted nothing more than to prove he was fearless. But when everything he held close was taken away, life taught Tyrone to be afraid. Now older and more sheltered, Tyrone closes himself off. But when he meets a girl named Tandy his life changes forever.

Handling showrunner duties on Cloak & Dagger will be Joe Pokaski, who’s also an executive producer. Of the news, he said:

“The characters of Tandy and Tyrone have always stood out to me ever since I first met them in the pages of Marvel comics when I was a boy. When Olivia and Aubrey read for the roles, these characters leapt off the page. We’re so excited to see what these talented young actors bring to the Marvel Universe.”

Executive producer and head of Marvel TV Jeph Loeb added:

“Marvel is delighted to have found our Cloak and Dagger. Olivia Holt and Aubrey Joseph encompass the true essence of the characters and we are excited for the audience to see them in these roles.”

Cloak & Dagger will be airing on Freeform, and is expected to arrive sometime in 2018.
