This past week Marvel gave us a first look at its upcoming Cloak and Dagger series on ABC Freeform. It’s a teen drama set within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, starring Olivia Holt (Kickin It, Girl vs Monster) and Aubrey Joseph (Run All Night, The Night Of) as Tandy Bowen and Tyrone Johnson respectively. In the comics, Cloak and Dagger are two teen runaways who were exposed to drugs that gave them access to their mutant powers, with Cloak able to surround himself in a ‘cloak’ of darkness and Dagger able to create daggers of hard light. The duo made their debut in Peter Parker, The Spectacular Spider-Man #64, and have shown up in Runaways, X-Men, and the ‘Marvel Knights’. The show will air its 10-episode season next-year.

Fox’s X-Men Live action show has a title, although it may be changed by the time it airs. The show’s tentative title is called “Gifted”. Producer Lauren Shuler-Donner tweeted this photo of the show’s cast while revealing the title. The show follows a family that joins up with a mutant underground after discovering that the family’s children have mutant powers. The show seeks to tie into the larder X-men movieverse, as several familiar names from the comics have been cast such as Thunderbird, Blink and Polaris. As of now, there is no primere date set for the show.
Looks like Marvel really is getting serious about its console gaming presence again, and a colloboration with Square-Enix has the potential to be huge. While the long wait is a drag, we’ll have Telltale’s Guardians of teh Galaxy Game, Marvel vs Capcom Infinite, and Insomniac’s PS4 Spider-man title (assume it comes out this year) to tide us over until then.
Since All-New Marvel had been announced, many fans feared that the X-men books were being thrown towards the wayside in favor of Disney-approved heroes, and that the Inhumans were taking the place of mutants as the ‘hated and feared’ superpowered minority of the Marvel Universe. Happily, these fears seem to be unfounded. For the past few weeks, Marvel has been hinting at a ‘Resurrexion’ for the X-men books. A teaser went out two weeks ago, and last week, several new books were revealed, each of which being a throwback of sorts to the past. However, they leave some interesting questions in their wake, especially since the creative teams behind each book have yet to be revealed.
Yesterday we got a look at the next installment of Marvel’s space odyssey. Not much was shown beside Chris Pratt as Star Lord, Zoe Saldana as Gammorah, Batista as Drax, and cameos by Rocket and Groot. However with Dr. Strange on the way in 2 weeks and the recent Logan trailer, we should have enough to chew on before the film’s May 5th 2017 release date.
