Disney Channel and HBO Alumni will play the titular duo.
We now know who will be portraying the lead characters for Marvel’s latest TV show, Cloak and Dagger.
Olivia Holt is set to play Tandy Bowen (Dagger) and Aubrey Joseph will star as Tyrone Johnson (Cloak).
Holt is best known for her roles in the Disney Channel shows Kick’n It and I Didn’t Do It, and Johnson made a splash in the recent HBO miniseries The Night Of.
Set to be a “coming-of-age series,” Cloak and Dagger follows the relationship between Bowen and Joseph, and their eventual transformation into superheroes who can teleport/create a shroud of darkness and throw daggers made of light (try to guess which one does which).
Here’s the official synopsis from Marvel:
Once a privileged little girl, Tandy Bowen watched as her family was destroyed by a disastrous storm that uprooted her life. Now in her late teens, an unexpected encounter with a boy named Tyrone sparks a life changing event.
Young Tyrone Johnson wanted nothing more than to prove he was fearless. But when everything he held close was taken away, life taught Tyrone to be afraid. Now older and more sheltered, Tyrone closes himself off. But when he meets a girl named Tandy his life changes forever.
