So, what did attendees think of Freeform's take on the slightly overwrought genre of brooding superhero drama? Very good things, actually.
Following a preview of Cloak & Dagger's pilot, it seems that the consensus is that of praise – particularly over the two "immensely good" leads in Olivia Holt and Aubrey Joseph.
Meredith Borders for /Film praised the show's "powerful storytelling" and unique take on the YA superhero genre. "Cloak & Dagger feels new in every particular," she said.
"It feels exciting and significant. We're lucky to have it."
I’ll have more thoughts on the premiere episode of Marvel’s #CloakAndDagger up on the site soon, but let me just say this: the two young leads are immensely good. They’ll be the reason the watch.- mclevy @SXSW (@alexm247) March 11, 2018
