Cloak & Dagger Trailer Promises One Will Live, One Will Die

A new trailer for Marvel's Cloak & Dagger shines a light on the plot and title characters of the upcoming Freeform drama.

The trailer opens with "House of the Rising Sun" in pretty obvious fashion, as the series is set in New Orleans. Tandy Bowen (Olivia Holt) and Tyrone Johnson (Aubrey Joseph) are seemingly dawn together by fate to protect the city form an ambiguous dark force. But that protection comes at a cost: one of their lives.

This new trailer also offers a look at the pair's powers, namely, Dagger's light daggers and Cloak's use of the Darkforce dimension. That last bit provides an interesting tie to other Marvel Cinematic Universe dramas, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Agent Carter, in which Darkforce served as a plot point.

We also get a couple of more glimpses at the Roxxon Corporation, which plays a role in the series. If the comics are anything to go by, the mega-company will be an antagonist.

Arriving Jun 7 on Freeform with a two-hour premiere, Cloak & Dagger stars Olivia Holt as Tandy Bowen/Dagger and Aubrey Joseph as Tyrone Johnson/Cloak, as well as 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.
