The Cloak & Dagger Trailer Sets Up The Stakes

Ever since it’s been announced, there’s been a lot of speculation around what a YA series based around the classic Marvel characters, Cloak & Dagger, would look like. Especially on Freeform, the first superhero series to land there. There have been a few clips and teasers, but today we got the full introductory trailer as to who these kids are, and where we find them at the start of this show.

With DC somewhat dominating this age demo of the genre with it’s CW shows, this trailer positions Cloak & Dagger to be a solid second shot, after Runaways very successful run on Hulu. It also demonstrates Disney’s ability to spread Marvel’s content across several platforms, as Agents Of Shield is currently in season 5 on ABC, and Netflix carries several New York City based heroes, in Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and The Punisher.

This version of Cloak & Dagger takes place in Louisiana and will obviously play heavily on both race and class, through an interracial relationship with a couple who are from different ends of the economic spectrum, and I for one, am all for it. What are your thoughts? Let us know!

The Marvel series that revolves around a group of teens who discover their parents are part of an evil organization will continue to tell its story for a second season.

Hulu has announced that it will renew the Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage hit series and will upgrade them to 13 episodes for its sophomore season. Much of this is thanks to positive reviews from fans and critics (90 percent on Rotten Tomatoes and certified fresh at 83 percent among critics).

We are excited for the second season having hung along for the ride. We want to know what you all think about this. Are you excited? Do you want to see a second season?
