The character breakdowns for Freeform’s new series, Marvel’s Cloak and Dagger have been revealed. Debby Ryan and Noah Gray Cabey are rumored to be playing the two leads, “Tara” and “Travis” but nothing has been confirmed yet.
According to The Hashtag Show, the character breakdowns read
Tara – Female, 18 to play 17, Caucasian.
Tara was a plucky southern girl who grew up with everything. She was always full of light. Then an accident took away everything. Now she’s a cynic who steals from tourists to make ends meet. Life took from her. She’s going to take back. But can that light be rekindled? Series Lead.
Travis – Male. 18 to play 17. African American.
When Travis was a little boy he was fearless. But then he made a mistake and it cost him dearly. So Travis grew up in a fear. Scared of a world he couldn’t control. So he controlled what he could. Keeping his head down, focusing on school and basketball. Locking in on fear. But is that brave boy still in there? Series Lead.
“Described as a superhero love story, Cloak and Dagger is based on the titular comic book duo (also known as Tandy Bowen and Tyrone Johnson) who have appeared in Marvel Comics classics, including Spiderman and X-Men stories.The live-action interracial romance follows the duo, two teenagers from very different backgrounds, who find themselves burdened and awakened to newly acquired superpowers while falling in love.
Tandy can emit light daggers and Tyrone has the ability to engulf others in darkness. They quickly learn they are better together than apart, but their feelings for each other make their already complicated world even more challenging.”
It looks like they could be possibly changing the original names of Cloak and Dagger, but that could also be to throw people off. What do you guys think? Will you guys be watching the show?
