The MCU Gets Angsty with Cloak & Dagger (Trailer)

Although it’s not airing until 2018, Freeform has put out a trailer for their first entry into the MCU, Cloak & Dagger.  Based on Marvel’s ying/yang romantic superhero couple, the setting moves from NYC to New Orleans as Dagger aka Tandy Bowen (Olivia Holt) and Cloak aka Tyrone Johnson (Aubrey Joseph) deal with high school drama and the pressures of their different backgrounds on top of realizing they have superpowers that work better when they are together (Dagger can create light blades and Cloak can enwrap people in darkness and teleport).  Freeform has basically become what The CW was before the current nerdy direction of that network and Cloak & Dagger looks like it’s going to 90% teen angst and 10% actual superhero stuff that’s more in the vein of a One Tree Hill or Dawson’s Creek than Arrow or Flash.  You can check out the trailer below and decide for yourself.
