I saw a few write up’s on this a few months ago. I was hyped. This was something I was waiting on for a while. And now that it’s official. A cast photo has been released, proof that this is really going down.
If you haven’t noticed by now, I am a fan of Marvel Comics. And this Cloak & Dagger series looks like it’s going to be pretty good. While I’m not familiar with their backstory, It’s a duo, I’ve heard be bounce around fairly often.

A few years back, around the time of the buy out.There were rumors of a possible Runaways movie circulating on the net. I’m not sure whether, these rumors were true or pulled out of thin air. That realization would not sway me. Years later, I still love the idea. A live action Runaways movie or Series (Tv or Netflix original) would be so dope.
I can picture it now.
