Relative unknowns Noah Gray-Cabey (“Heroes”) and Debby Ryan (“Jessie”) have reportedly been chosen to play the lead roles of Tyrone “Ty” Johnson and Tandy Bowen in Marvel and Freeform’s “Cloak and Dagger” TV series.
MCU Exchange broke the casting report, saying they’ve heard the news from unnamed sources. Lending some very minor credence is that Gray-Cabey was recently followed on Twitter by showrunner Joe Pokaski, while Ryan meanwhile has started following the official page for the characters as well.
The comic follows two teenagers from very different backgrounds who discover 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 complicated world even more challenging.
The series is said to be a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and Gina Prince-Bythewood was previously announced as director of the pilot episode. Production on the series is expected to begin next month.
