The Marvel MCU television universe is about to get larger…

Variety is reporting that Freeform “younger-skewing ABC-owned network” has moved Cloak And Dagger, a superhero love story, straight to series.

Cloak and Dagger are heroes Tandy Bowen and Tyrone Johnson, two teens that society want kept apart, who find each other when they develop super abilities: “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.”

The series has no writer or cast yet but it looks like it’s set to join the MCU soon.

No writer has been attached to the series, but the search is currently under way. Marvel Studios and ABC Signature Studios will co-produce.

What say you guys? Will you be tuning in?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
