Cloak And Dagger - Rumor - Casting Revealed?

We at the MCU Exchange try to do our best to follow best practices in social media and journalism so when we pass on a rumor, you can trust that we have done a great deal of work and thinking behind the scenes before bringing it to you. With that said, we have done our thinking and have chosen to present the following to you as a rumor and, at this point, nothing more.

We were contacted by a new source who indicated to us that Marvel has cast the leads for the upcoming Cloak and Dagger series to be aired on Freeform. According to this source Noah Gray-Cabey (Heroes, Code Black) and Debby Ryan (Jessie, Radio Rebel) have been cast as Tyrone Johnson and Tandy Bowen, respectively.

After receiving the information, we reached out to other sources for confirmation and did some digging around on our own. In digging we found some interesting social media activity that could tie the two actors to the show. Cabey, who recently finished filming the second season of Code Black, was also recently followed on Twitter by Joe Pokaski, the showrunner for Cloak and Dagger. While that piece of evidence is tenuous by itself, given our information and the fact that the vast majority of the people Pokaski follows on Twitter are either people he has worked with or people associated with Marvel, it certainly seems less than coincidental.

In searching through Ryan’s Twitter, we found that she follows the official Marvel Cloak and Dagger Twitter page. Ryan doesn’t follow many people, and even fewer shows. Of those, Cloak and Dagger is definitely the outlier and adds another breadcrumb to our trail.
