The upcoming Freeform series, Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger has released a new full-length trailer, giving fans their first proper look at the Marvel Comics duo.

Marvel has been working to expand their small screen extension of the Marvel Cinematic Universe since 2013, when Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. debuted on ABC. Since that time, the TV side of the MCU has grown across ABC, Netflix, and Hulu – and will soon span further when Cloak & Dagger airs on Freeform. The network, under Disney like Marvel Studios, is aimed at a younger audience, who they are clearing hoping to attract with this series.

Following Tandy Bowen a.k.a. Dagger (Olivia Holt) and Tyrone Johnson a.k.a. Cloak (Aubrey Joseph) as they discover their powers, growing closer all the time, the friendship and romance aspects of the story, combined with the comicbook elements, is perfect to market at a younger audience than perhaps Marvel’s grittier Netflix series.

Marvel released this new trailer, after having teased it earlier in the week, along with a new poster, that put the focus on the main characters using their abilities. Tyrone has the ability to engulf people in darkness, transporting them to or through the Darkforce dimension. Tandy, however, wields light daggers, hence their respective monikers of Cloak and Dagger.


This trailer, unlike the teasers before it, shows a lot more of the protagonists’ progression – from the discovery of their powers, to the point where they begin to master them. The portrayal of the powers themselves looks great on screen, and hopefully this will be something that we will see a lot of during the first season.

There is an ominous voiceover accompanying this trailer, as it mentions a “divine pairing” insinuating that this duo is in fact Tandy and Tyrone – and suggesting that as this prophecy suggests, one will live, and one will die. Although it seems unlikely that the show will kill off one of its main characters in the first season, it does suggest that that at least one of the pair will find themselves in mortal danger.

Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger will premiere on June 7th.
