Marvel have recently announce the main casts for two upcoming television projects, Cloak and Dagger & The Runaways (yes, I've been waiting for this one for years). You can read more here:
Cloak and Dagger is scheduled to start airing on Freeform (ABC Family) in 2018. Filming for The Runaways is scheduled to start this month but there is no word on an expected air date as yet.
What do you guys think of the casting choices? Are you excited about these two Marvel projects? Let us know in the comments below.
And with that
Honestly I love Cloak & Dagger but considering that it’s gonna be on Freeform I don’t really have high hopes for the quality. When It airs I’m gonna watch it but my fingers won’t be crossed.
Runaways I’m really stoked for though!!!!
If they are tied into the greater MCU, the interest is high. If they are stand alones, interest is low. Also, the limited distribution channels lower my interest. Disney/Marvel already has a deal in place with Netflix, why not keep things in house so to speak? And freeform? Really? I get Disney owns ABC and all, but have some faith in your IP and put it on ABC or Netflix.
@Gene- Well, I’m assuming that they’re both part of the MCU (I believe C&D has been confirmed MCU, whilst Runaways hasn’t yet, but considering the fact that Cloak and Dagger guest star in the Runaways comic very early on, I’d assume that if one is MCU the other will be too). ABC is home to Agents of Shield so there is definitely room to tie in there. Admittedly, Cloak and Dagger seems much more suited for Netflix, considering some of the story themes, but they went ABC.
