“The universe keeps pushing us together.”
“The universe keeps pulling us apart.”
The latest trailer for Marvel’s Cloak and Dagger is all about dualities: Tyrone’s (a.k.a. Cloak) need to be perfect, to constantly prove himself at his prep school, contrasted with Tandy’s (a.k.a. Dagger) tendency to skip town when things get tough but also her ability to get away with living on the fringes. But what unites these teenagers are formative childhood tragedies and the fact that, with their complementary powers, they seem fated to meet—as a “divine pairing” meant to team up. But what’s that about one of them living while the other dies?
The official synopsis, from Marvel:
Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger is the story of Tandy Bowen (Olivia Holt) and Tyrone Johnson (Aubrey Joseph)—two teenagers from very different backgrounds, who find themselves burdened and awakened to newly acquired superpowers which are mysteriously linked to one another. 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.
The latest trailer seems to mostly set up the pilot, as well as some season-long mysteries involving Roxxon Corp, but it lays some interesting groundwork for not just what brings Cloak and Dagger together, but what may also push them apart. Plus, it’s really cool that it’s set in New Orleans. Watch for yourself:
Cloak and Dagger premieres June 7 on Freeform.
