    It's interesting they switched the role of thief or some would say arguably pc.

    Well, they still included a former Disney Channel star but it's Olivia Holt instead of Debby Ryan. I'm not familiar with Aubrey Joseph on the other hand, but I hear he's in The Night Of which I still want to watch.

    I get the feeling this will be a bit different from the comic version of Cloak and Dagger, but hopefully it's still enjoyable.

    I mentioned this casting to someone and they reminded me that Olivia was another one that got to do a little Marvel VA
    work before.



    I hope this turns out to be good, even through the Freeform filter.

    Phew, nothing against Debbie, but I'm glad she wasn't chosen. I would have had a hard time taking her seriously.

    The only additional names I recognized by name are the moms. I'm going to be pretty anxious to see what this turns out to be.

    Any ER alum has my vote. Ruben is a good actress.

    Aubrey Joseph posted a photo he took with Olivia Holt. Not on set, but essentially the beginning of seeing them together for the next few years.

    Now all we need is to see them in costume ;).

    If they actually wear costumes, granted :sweat:.

    Just occurred to me, I guess Mister Negative may the main villain?

    If they can even use him :sweat:.

    I'd imagine they'd need Sony's permission to use a Spider-rogue in anything non-Spider or movie related, unless it being on TV gives them an "out" on that front o_O.

    I imagine the overarching villain(s) will probably be related to how Cloak and Dagger get their powers in this continuity :ack:.

    Good point. I'm not that familiar with C&D's rogues either.

    From what I recall, they mostly fought drug dealers and the like during their initial run.

    Ultimate Cloak and Dagger were also enemies of Roxxon, who were responsible for their powers.

    I have a feeling they'll go the Ultimate route for this since it's Freeform and they have to nail the stupid young female teen demo. Which sucks because it missed the entire point of Cloak and Dagger which was to address teen homelessness and drug use.

    Hmm...I'm not sure about Freeform's normal TV production, but is 10 episodes normal? It seems a little short o_O?

    I don't know but as soon as I saw it was 10 - I recalled it's set for Winter 2018 -- and made me think they could be positioning to use this show when most of their programming goes into hiatus like with Agent Carter on ABC.

    Honestly, looking at how they handle the series writing for these shows; less is more.
