Yesterday the two leads were announced for Cloak and Dagger, and Olivia Holt and Aubrey Joseph will be the actors bringing Tandy Bowen and Tyrone Johnson to life. Now thanks to an updated listing on MyEntertainmentWorld, it appears that Cloak and Dagger will start shooting on February 13, 2017.
The page also listed the start date for Hulu's Runaways project, and that series will surprisingly start on the same date. Surprisingly because that cast has yet to be announced, and there isn't near as much known about Hulu's upcoming series.
You can read the official synopsis for Cloak and Dagger below.
Arriving at Manhattan's Port Authority Bus Terminal, a penniless Tyrone considered robbing Tandy Bowen, a rich girl who had also run away from home; yet when someone else robbed her first, Tyrone impulsively tackled the thief and returned Tandy's purse. The two teens became fast friends. When the naïve Tandy accepted an offer of shelter from some strange men, a wary Tyrone went along to protect her; however, the two teens were soon forcibly delivered to criminal chemist Simon Marshall.
Marshall was developing a new synthetic heroin for the Maggia, testing it on runaway teens with fatal results. Johnson and Bowen somehow survived injections of the drug, and they fled. During their escape, Tyrone found himself engulfed in darkness and seized by a strange hunger which eased in the presence of Tandy, who was glowing with a brilliant light. Trying to hide his newly shadowy appearance in a makeshift cloak, Tyrone began absorbing Marshall's thugs into his darkness while Tandy struck them down with daggers of light. The two teens dubbed themselves Cloak & Dagger and declared war on drug crime.
Marvel's Cloak and Dagger is scheduled to hit Freeform sometime in Winter of 2018.
