I'm a longstanding fan of Cloak and Dagger, ever since you could summon them in the old Spider-Man and Venom game for the SNES. :laugh:

 

The property is likely a bit too 80s to do a completely faithful adaptation, but the core elements lend themselves really well to what they'll be trying to do here. The two leads are high school-age kids from different sides of the tracks who live on their own and fight injustice, which suits the 'young adult' market down to the ground.

Yeah, it'll most likely skew towards a younger audience than the Netflix stuff, but there's certainly potential there for it to be interestingly done. Aside from the love story aspect, they could really focus in on the teen homelessness aspect of their backstory. There’s a lot they can mine from it (drug addiction, prostitution/human trafficking etc) that could give the show real depth.

it looks better than i thought!

 

 

It looks pretty different from anything Marvel has done up to now, which is quite intriguing. I feel like the aim for this is to cross over to different audiences, so even if it ends up not appealing as much to you and I, it could be a way for them to expand beyond their built-in fanbase and those already watching the Netflix stuff, Legion, and to a lesser extent AoS. :smile:

yeah this is something different from them, i can see it doing really good with the younger audience since apart from AOS the rest is a little heavy and complicated for the teens

For a calculated step into a different genre, I think the source material is just right and of course, what we've seen so far looks pretty appropriate for teen drama land. It'll be interesting to see how the writers introduce their powers though, since the origin story from the books was very reminiscent of Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch in Age of Ultron. We'll see how it goes. :hehe:
