Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger – Trailer #1

Having speculated yesterday on what Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger needed to succeed-a healthy budget and good FX (solid acting and characters easy to relate to should go without saying)–and having just watched the trailer I think they got Dagger right.

Her light knives looked a bit too ‘solid’ for me initially, but on repeat viewing they seem okay.

Though Cloak is a much more problematic.  At least as depicted in the trailer, he comes off more like Nightcrawler than he does Cloak.

It’s early days yet though I really want to see Cloak actually wearing–I don’t know–a damn cloak.

Here’s how they look in the comic.

Dagger’s costume looks good, though on a real woman it would look not only silly, but borderline pornographic.

Cloak’s costume is…well…as I mentioned before, a cloak that works in a literal as well as a metaphorical sense.

Which is why he REALLY needs to wear one.
