Fans have wanted it, now they’ll get it. Marvel’s Runaways and Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger will crossover for an episode of the former series in December.
Runaways airs on Hulu while Cloak & Dagger airs on Freeform. Both are Disney-owned, produced by Marvel Television and exist in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (supposedly sharing continuity with the films). The episode will be a part of Runaways’ Season 3 on Hulu, which returns on December 13. Cloak & Dagger is awaiting a Season 3 announcement at Freeform.
“It’s so fun being able to do something that revels in the Mighty Marvel Manner! Having these young heroes crossover allows fans of both shows to see the adventure everyone has been waiting for and we’ve only hinted at,” said Jeph Loeb, Executive Producer and Head of Marvel Television.
The official description of Runaways third season: In the third season, the Runaways frantically search for their captured friends Chase Stein, Gert Yorkes, and Karolina Dean. The kids go head to head with an unstoppable enemy who has targeted Leslie — or more accurately, the child she’s carrying. Nico Minoru draws them all into a dark realm where its ruler Morgan le Fay, played by Elizabeth Hurley, is much more nefarious than anyone the kids have yet to face.
The second season of Cloak & Dagger ended with Tyrone Johnson (Cloak) and Tandy Bowen (Dagger) on a bus leaving New Orleans in hopes of helping out other parts of the country.
Cloak & Dagger stars Aubrey Joseph, Olivia Holt, Emma Lahana, Gloria Reuben, Miles Mussenden, Andrea Roth and J.D. Evermore. Runaways stars Rhenzy Feliz, Angel Parker and Ryan Sands along with Lyrica Okano, Brittany Ishibashi, James Yaegashi, Virginia Gardner, Annie Wersching, Kip Pardue, Ariela Barer, Kevin Weisman, Gregg Sulkin, James Marsters, Ever Carradine, Allegra Acosta.
