Marvel's Cloak & Dagger, based on the comic of the same name, is the story of Tandy (Olivia Holt), a young woman who has lost everything, and Tyrone (Aubrey Joseph), a young man trying to recover from a tragedy in his past. They discover that they have special abilities, and those abilities are more powerful when they're together.
In anticipation of the show, SYFY FANGRRLS spoke with executive producer Jeph Loeb, executive producer and showrunner Joe Pokaski, and executive producer and pilot director Gina Prince-Bythewood. They discuss the decision to adapt Cloak & Dagger as a "coming-of-age story in the Marvel universe" that "reflects the uncertainty of growing up in America today," as well as filming the show on location in New Orleans. We also try to see if we can talk Loeb into spilling more deets about how this show fits into the greater Marvel universe.
Cloak & Dagger premieres on June 7 on Freeform at 8/7c.
