As Marvel continues to dominate on the big screen, things are also heating up for the television shows. In addition to the next Netflix show The Defenders gearing up for release next month and Inhumans premiering this fall, Marvel is also preparing for a bunch of new television shows. Runaways was announced for a 2018 release on Hulu and has fans excited. Marvel will also be premiering Cloak and Dagger on the new ABC channel Freeform. In addition to Cloak and Dagger, Freeform will have another Marvel TV show next year, The New Warriors.
It’s been a busy couple of days for Marvel news. (They probably felt compelled to try and outdo Star Wars after Celebration.) Now a lot of that news is about Marvel Studios movies, but now there’s TV-related news too and it’s from an unusual source. Filming just began on the Freeform Marvel series Cloak and Dagger, and it’s not due on our TV screens for another year, but now, here today, is a trailer for the new series. If you like some of that YA flavour with your superhero films, this is your chance to indulge in teenage odd couples who are star-crossed. (more…)
It seems nothing can stop the entertainment juggernaut that is the combined might of Disney and Marvel in the areas of film and television. Not only have their properties consistently raked in billions of dollars each year in cinemas since the MCEU debuted, they have had quite a showing on the small screen as well. Marvel’s Agents of Shield on ABC and the successful hits on Netflix clearly aren’t enough to keep the company sated. In 2018, Marvel will be debuting another Superhero-themed television series, this time to FreeForm with the debut of a new Cloak & Dagger series. Details have been slim for this series, which still has over a year before it airs, but today news came out that the pilot episode has finally gotten its director.
Freeform, the former ABC Family network is amping up their superhero line up aimed at a much younger crowd. Just the other day Freeform announced the development of Marvel‘s Cloak and Dagger, now they’ve brought back a fan favorite from across the pond, Misfits. If you haven’t heard of Misfits, then you’re in for a treat, the show is a lot of fun and the musical soundtrack is an incredible mix that will open your eyes to a number of fantastic British bands and musicians.

As Marvel Studios continues to dominate the box office, they are also standing out on the small screen too with Agent Carter, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and soon spin-off series Most Wanted on ABC, plus the Netflix series Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and soon enough Luke Cage and Iron Fist. With the interconnected Marvel Cinematic Universe now on two networks, the studio is making a play for a third by introducing new characters to a new audience. Marvel is now looking at launching a new series on the old ABC Family, home of such offerings as Pretty Little Liars, with a series about two misunderstood teen heroes that will be right at home there.
