Marvel’s ‘Cloak and Dagger’ TV Series Pushed Back to 2018
It’s been some time since we’ve had any update on the status of Marvel’s Cloak and Dagger series over at Freeform, and perhaps with good reason. Reports confirm that the series has been pushed back to 2018, as the series’ official writer reworks the script.
Per The Hollywood Reporter, Freeform quietly pushed back its original April straight-to-series order, now eying a debut for winter 2018. At the very least, we now know that Daredevil writer and co-executive producer Joe Pokaski, has come aboard as showrunner, and is in the process of rewriting his original script for the series.
So reads the synopsis, based on title characters Tandy Bowen and Tyrone Johnson:
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.
It remains unclear if Cloak and Dagger will be set in the overall MCU, but what should we make of Marvel pushing back its release?
