There is a Cloak and Dagger TV show in the works


cloak and daggerGreat news for Cloak and Dagger fans as Freeform (a Disney owned TV network) are working on bringing the Marvel characters to TV.

The characters of Cloak and Dagger, aka Tyrone Johnson and Tandy Bowen, were created by writer Bill Mantlo and artist Ed Hannigan. They first appeared in Peter Parker, the Spectacular Spider-Man #64 (March 1982).

Their storylines got quite dark and hopefully the TV show will follow the same path. It is being described as a superhero love story.

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.

Here are the abilitis of the comic book characters:

Tyrone acquired D’Spayre’s Dark Form, which gave him the ability to create an aperture into the dimension of darkness and to dispatch people into the darkness dimension. He also gained the abilities of intangibility, and the teleportation of himself and others through the dimension of darkness. Cloak feels a constant “hunger” which can only be assuaged by “feeding” either on light projected by Dagger or on light consumed from victims dispatched to the dimension of darkness. He later develops better control of his “hunger”.

Tandy had the ability to create psionic “light daggers” which travel wherever she wills them, and which drain living beings of vitality when struck. Her “light daggers” also have the capacity to cure certain persons of drug addictions, and can alleviate Cloak’s hunger for light (which simultaneously allows her to avoid becoming overcharged).

Cloak and Dagger both have moderate experience at street-fighting, and Dagger’s combat techniques utilize her light powers and ballet dance training, as well as her sense of spatial relations, which had been heightened by her temporary blindness.

No writer has been attached to the series, but the search is currently under way. Marvel Studios and ABC Signature Studios will co-produce.
