WHAT A TIME TO BE ALIVE.  I say this with zero sarcasm (this time) because I never thought we’d see this day. We may actually NEVER see this day, but hey, Marvel comic title “Cloak & Dagger” just got the direct-to-series television show greenlight, and that’s just MARVEL-ous.

Freeform, a younger-skewing Disney-owned network will be the home of this superhero ‘romance’ series, and so far things look promising.  Variety says:

Described as a superhero love story, “Cloak and Dagger” is based on the titular comic book duo (also known as Tandy Bowen and Tyrone Johnson) who have appeared in Marvel Comics classics, including “Spiderman” and “X-Men” stories.

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

No word on casting yet though, and that is likely the step to make or break this series.  Who would YOU like to see as Tandy and Tyrone? Let us know in the comments!  We’ll let you know as more information becomes available.
