“Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger” is set to premiere later this summer so their promotional tour made a stop at WonderCon 2018. Showrunner Joe Pokaski addressed a multitude of questions but when the conversation turned to “Power Rangers Dino Thunder” alum Emma Lahana joining the the show, Pokaski managed to remain tightlipped and gush at the same time:
“I can tell you nothing about her character and it drives me crazy! Here’s what I can tell you: Emma Lahana is gonna show up in our second episode and she’s gonna say exactly one sentence and she’s gonna blow you away. And as you watch her story, you’re gonna see something you haven’t seen on television before because she’s really talented and she really brings it.”
No other details were given about Lahana’s role so it remains unclear if the unprecedented nature of her character refers to Lahana’s performance or if her storyline will be truly unique, the likes of which we’ve never seen before on the small screen. Regardlesss, Pokaski’s tease coupled with the positive buzz surrounding the show is enough to get me to tune in.
“Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger” premieres Thursday, June 7 at 8/7c on Freeform (formerly ABC Family).
