It's been a while since we heard anything about Cloak & Dagger, the Freeform adaptation of the Marvel comic. But, with its release slated for later this year, the creators have opened up about the challenges and opportunities of telling a new kind of story in Marvel's TV sandbox.

If you watched the first trailer for Marvel's Inhumans TV show and were like, "what the hell was that?" Good news! The director of the show didn't care for it much either.
Traditionally, Friday night in the US is where TV shows go to die. It's even referred to by many as the "death slot", because so few people watch TV on Friday. So then, it's rather inauspicious for ABC's huge new Marvel show Inhumans that it has been scheduled in that slot. Further, ABC has also moved Agents of SHIELD to -- you guessed it -- Friday.
The leader of the Inhumans, Black Bolt, has just been cast. Actor Anson Mount will play the hero on Marvel's upcoming TV show Inhumans, which premieres in IMAX this September before moving to America's ABC.
"Black Bolt is a character whose deep complexity must be conveyed without uttering a single word, and I'm very excited to have Anson on board to bring him to life," said showrunner Scott Buck in a press release.
Mount is best known for his role on AMC's Hell on Wheels, but also appeared on Lost, Dollhouse and Sex and the City, among others. With Inhumans though, he's going to have a new challenge: Not speaking.
The news of Marvel TV doing an Inhumans TV show was very exciting for fans of that universe. Now, Marvel TV fans of all kinds have reason to be excited about it.
