Olivia Holt and Aubrey Joseph have been the stars of Marvel's Cloak & Dagger for 2 seasons now, and ahead of any more adventures on the Freeform series, the crime-fighting duo is hitting the road. We learned earlier this year they'll be appearing in Hulu's other teen superhero series Marvel's Runaways, and the two will soon also jump into the world of animation for a guest spot for Marvel's Spider-Man on Disney XD.
The episode, titled "Cloak and Dagger," finds the two heroes at Midtown High with one thing on their mind, revenge. Their target is Midtown benefactor Tiberius Stone and the company Alchemax, which puts them at odds with Superior Spider-Man. It all results in a battle fans can see a bit of in the exclusive video below all whilst listening to Olivia Holt and Aubrey Joseph talk about playing their characters in Marvel's Spider-Man.
As Olivia Holt pointed out, Cloak & Dagger are looking a bit different in Marvel's Spider-Man than they have in the first 2 seasons of their Freeform series. That's probably because these versions are not technically connected to the same universe as their own show, though the Freeform series does tend to have a bunch of Marvel connections. One thing that hasn't changed is the characters shared want of revenge against the man who tortured them way back when, which Superior Spider-Man is going to prevent if he can help it.
For those a bit out of the loop Superior Spider-Man isn't the traditional Spider-Man but Spider-Man with the consciousness of Spidey villain Doctor Otto Octavius. The duo will attempt to subdue the web-slinger as best they can, which will require some sweet maneuvers that really showcase how cool it will be to see Cloak and Dagger appear in Marvel's Spider-Man.
Unfortunately, this seems like it will be one of the few times we'll get to see these two Marvel heroes moving so gracefully, as Olivia Holt copped to the fact that her animated character can maneuver herself better than the actress can in live-action. Of course, that's what stunt doubles are for, so there's still a chance Freeform fans will get to see these two mix some solid kung-fu with their immense mental powers in a future episode of Cloak & Dagger.
Speaking of which, where is that Season 3 renewal for Cloak & Dagger, Freeform and Marvel? Inquiring minds want to know!
