Marvel's CLOAK & DAGGER Debuts First Trailer
Get excited to see Cloak and Dagger...one year from now.
Marvel Entertainment has released the first trailer for the upcoming Freeform television series Cloak & Dagger, based on the Marvel Comics superhero duo. In the series, Tandy Bowen and Tyrone Johnson, two teenagers from different backgrounds, acquire superpowers while forming a romantic relationship. They soon realize that their powers work better when they are together, but their feelings for each other make their already complicated world even more challenging.
The one minute, 45-second trailer opens with young Tyrone (Aubrey Joseph) remembering seeing his father confronted by police when he was a young boy, while young Tandy (Olivia Holt) is shown as a young girl training for ballet.
A flashback to a car accident is shown, as Tandy tells her criminal partner and boyfriend Liam (Carl Lundstedt), "Did I ever tell you about that night?"
We see young Tyrone diving into water to rescue young Tandy after her parents' car goes off a bridge. It seems the two are destined to be together.
Switching to the modern day, we see fleeting images of Tyrone getting into a fight during a basketball game, while Melissa Bowen (Andrea Roth), Tandy's mother, is upset as the police search their house for something. "You can't do this!" she cries.
"It's like if I don't do everything perfectly, you're gonna lose me," Tyrone says to his mother, Adina Johnson (Gloria Reuben).
"I'm afraid even if you do everything perfectly, I'm gonna lose you," replies Adina, tearing up.
The two manage to bump into one another and introduce themselves. Tyrone gets mixed up with some criminals and is almost shot after escaping from the trunk of a car.
Later, we see Tyrone and Tandy running together in a graveyard at night, but as the two grab hands, a sudden burst of light emits from Tandy's hand, sending Tyrone flying. Tandy stares at her glowing hand, then looks over at Tyrone for understanding.
We see a fleeting image of young Tandy and young Tyrone lying together on the shore, holding hands after Tyrone rescued Tandy. Back in the present day, a guy attempts to force himself on Tandy, only to find himself stabbed in the stomach by a glowing dagger of light that Tandy somehow created.
Lastly, we see Tyrone waking up on a rooftop, dressed in a cloak. He looks up and sees a sign belonging to the Roxxon Corporation, a fictional energy corporation from the Marvel Universe that is traditionally up to unethical and illegal activities.
