Watch the First Trailer for Marvel's Cloak & Dagger

Freeform released the first trailer for its upcoming Marvel series Cloak & Dagger at its upfront presentation Wednesday.

Marvel's Cloak & Dagger tells the story of Tandy Bowen (Olivia Holt) and Tyrone Johnson (Aubrey Joseph), two teenagers with newly acquired superpowers. The New Orleans natives come from very different backgrounds, but their powers -- Tandy can emit light daggers while Tyrone can envelop others in darkness -- are complementary. But their budding superhero partnership is complicated by their feelings for each other.

This is all unfortunately pretty difficult to glean from the trailer, which has plenty of moody dubstep-pop but lacks comprehensibility.

The ten-episode first season will arrive in early 2018. Heroes writer and Underground co-creator Joe Pokaski is the showrunner. Cloak & Dagger is based on a comic series of the same name and is Freeform's first live-action Marvel series. Another, New Warriors, will also debut in 2018, and that series revealed its superhero lineup on Wednesday.

Should be interesting. I hope they stick to canon - they're not inhumans nor considered mutants - but their backgrounds look right so far. Should be easy since this is a series and not movie. Hell, they can even pull from the 4 part comic limited series that fleshed out Cloak and Dagger, though I doubt they'll have Spider-Man in the series (their first appearance was in Peter Parker, The Spectacular Spider Man). A bit of a shame though, when those twp plus Spidey went up against Dr. Doom; probably one of the best comics written.

I like the casting so far.. the two young actors personify my image of Cloak and Dagger. Now if the writers can write a solid series for them!

I know the comic book came first but does this show look or feel in any way like the comic book?

Just the fact that the two of them meet and get powers. In the comics, he was going to mug her but ended up saving her from another mugger. And then they became friends and got powers. This is a Freeform show, so they're going to spew angsty love all over it.

Only because they added the star-crossed lovers angle. In the comics, she was a rich kid that he wanted to rob. But he ended up saving her from getting mugged by someone else and they became friends.

So, Tandy is... The Iron Fist!!

I always liked Cloak's look: I'm a sucker for guys with darkness powers and semi-sentient capes where you can't tell what what's the inside of the cape, and what's the black void/portal that the cape contains.
