    Hmm, a two year delay. That's some serious back burner action. Marvel's entire TV landscape might be different by that point.

    I've done a little Googling and shows getting delayed/back burnered appears to be part and parcel with the network. For instance, there's some show called "Switched at Birth" Its season 4 aired January to October 2015. That was the pattern for season 2 to 4. Then for the last season, it got delayed to January 2017. It also could still be the adjustment period of the network rebranding from ABC Family to Freeform.

    I looked up the show runner and he doesn't have a lot of credits. He has written both good and terrible episodes of Heroes and semi decent Inhumans Secret Invasion tie in.

    Winter 2018 isn't much of a delay. It's coming out next season.

    Actually there's no delay at all. 2017 was given in the day of the announcement. I assume that referred to the 2017-18 season which includes winter 2018.

    Cloak and Dagger will debut before the post-Defenders slate of Netflix shows (Pun, JJ2, DD3).

    Either they've already cast the roles and just haven't revealed it yet, or we'll probably be hearing about casting very soon :ack:.

    1/7: New Orleans is interesting because that was the setting for the earlier pitch. Post-Katrina to be specific.

    The report states filming for 86 days and has a budget of $42 million (about the same as each season of the Netflix shows)

    No, but we might hears news this coming week because it's ABC's turn for TCA's Winter Press Tour.

    1/13: Minor update: $11.2 million of the 42 million budget will be spent in Louisiana, show is currently in pre-production, and principal photography begins mid-February.

    Rumor is that Noah Gray Cabey (Micah from Heroes) and Debbie Ryan (no idea who that is) are being looked at for the leads.

    Uh the kid from Heroes is too short. If true not feeling this casting. Cloak is supposed to be big tall and intimidating. However, since I can't imagine for the life of me why they chose this title as Family entertainment over Power Pack, instead of putting it on Netflix, then we'll see what they do with it.

    Former Disney actress , she starred in Jessie and Suite Life on Deck. It wouldn't be her first time involved with Marvel if she's cast since she did help Spider-Man fight Morgan Le Fay before . It would be a little funny, to me, since I think her old love interest is Jughead on Riverdale.



    Those are some interesting names. I wouldn't (and can't) have pictured either of them for the parts but who knows. Hopefully we get something concrete soon.

    It's Freeform and I'd guess it's TV14 so I can't imagine them shying away from too much. I'm still wondering why Power Pack hasn't been touched though...

    Debbie Ryan's acting has never impressed me on Suite Life or Jessie, so I hope she's improved since then.

    I admit, it's hard for me to picture Debbie Ryan as Dagger, let alone in this kind of role, but Noah could be a good Cloak :).

    He'll be great I've got a question though.

    Which origin do you think they'll go with the Ultimates one of the original one.

    Never read the Ultimate version, please elaborate the diff. also, someone on another board said this might be Marvel tying into Runaways. Never read much on that series, thoughts?

    Ultimate had the couple headed to prom when it looks like they're in an accident and wake up to find themselves being experimented on by some Roxxon people. I never got around to finishing USM or reading New Ultimates so I don't know if more was elaborated on but the kids weren't runaways or anything. I think they were actually overachievers at their separate schools before everything went crazy for them.

    I can't say I've ever imagined Tandy as a Southerner, or a thief, but I guess the former lends itself to the Debby Ryan casting :sweat:.
