With only one trailer and a premiere date to its name, the only buzz going on for Marvel and Freeform’s Cloak & Dagger are the buzzes of crickets. That may all change now. Over at Texas, at the South by Southwest festival, the premiere episode of Cloak & Dagger was screened to a select few lucky folks and their response has been nothing but positive.
The #CloakAndDagger first episode was a solid, promising start. That said, there’s nothing very new or different on display. If you like the current Marvel tv offerings, you’ll likely enjoy this. pic.twitter.com/e728sN2RA1

I’ll have more thoughts on the premiere episode of Marvel’s #CloakAndDagger up on the site soon, but let me just say this: the two young leads are immensely good. They’ll be the reason the watch.

I’m not expecting much from this but I’m glad the reception has been positive. Cloak & Dagger seems like the kind of YA material that’s just not for me. I really liked a chunk of Runaways but overall it lacked the brawn I look for in my superhero fares. It’s why I’m starting to like Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. more than the Netflix shows nowadays. With Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 5 nearing its end, Cloak & Dagger should be around by then to give us our MCU fix. June 5 folks, mark your calendars.
