Not only has the debut trailer for Freeform’s upcoming “Cloak and Dagger” series given fans of the character the first glimpse of Tandy and Tyrone come to life, the teaser also shared the show’s title logo.
Unlike many Marvel productions, “Cloak and Dagger” is apparently eschewing completely the character’s classic comic book logo for an all-new approach. Both hero’s names are presented in brushed metal, Cloak’s a darker shade, and Dagger’s appropriately shinier. Cloak’s silhouette is cut out from the “A” in his name, while Dagger’s “A” is reminiscent of her light daggers, which as we saw in the trailer, have made the transition from comics to television.
The official series synopsis reads:
Described as a superhero love story, Cloak and Dagger is based on the titular comic book duo (also known as Tandy Bowen and Tyrone Johnson) who have appeared in Marvel Comics classics, including Spiderman and X-Men stories. 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.
Based on the Marvel Comics characters created by Bill Mantlo and Ed Hannigan, “Cloak & Dagger” also stars Andrea Roth as Tandy’s mother Melissa Bowen, Gloria Reuben as Tyrone’s mother Adina Johnson, Miles Mussenden as Tyrone’s father Michael Johnson, Carl Lundstedt as Tandy’s partner in crime Liam, James Saito as Dr. Bernard Sanjo and J.D. Evermore as Detective Connors. The series is targeted to premiere in 2018 on the Disney-owned Freeform.
