Well that certainly is gonna bring all the angst! Now to be fair I think its actually rather good to focus on the more teen drama aspect for this trailer as a lot of what makes the superhero couple memorable to readers is the drama that comes from their relationship due to their different backgrounds, as showcased here. Now I could use that to launch into yet another rant as to how much One More Day STILL misses the point about not seeing drama in marriage or relationships for superhero comics, but I don’t want to waste my time, energy, or rage right now.
Holding off on showing the powers until the last part is a good move as we get to see what actors Olivia Holt and Aubrey Joseph bring as Tandy/Dagger and Tyrone/Cloak respectively. Now that’s of course not going to stop all the comparisons of this being Marvel getting in on that CW audience, but hey I think the show does really look good.
My only hope is the show does take a subtle route in handling the drama. Cloak and Dagger in the comics while a fascinating pair and exciting to read, can really go too far towards the melodrama, but you know if handled well, it’ll be a fun ride to go along.
Those are just my thoughts however, what are yours? Excited? Worried? Like the actors they cast? Let us know in the comments below!
