The newest Marvel show "Cloak & Dagger" just premiered Thursday night (June 7) on Freeform and already has some people contemplating how it may fit in with another recent superhero show. The two lead actors from the newest show feel that they might work well with "Runaways," and that if a crossover is to happen, that will be the show they collaborate with. Based on previous comic book stories and how "Runaways" is filmed, that seems like a possibility.

Compatible casts and crossover potential

Aubrey Joseph and Olivia Holt are the stars of the new show "Cloak & Dagger," which premiered on the Freeform network.

The first episode was called "First Light," and begins the exploration of the story of Tandy Bowen (Holt) and Tyrone Johnson (Joseph). They eventually find out that they are connected, which leads them to become the superhero team of Cloak and Dagger.

When the duo is together, their powers seem to work best. So far, the early critical response to the new show has been mostly positive. Rotten Tomatoes has given the show an 85 percent overall rating based on their collection of critical reviews. It's said to "blend soapy drama with superhero grit," making another great entry into Marvel's catalog of TV shows. Another show receiving praise has been "Marvel's Runaways," which unveiled their first season last November.

It has completed one season and achieved an 83 percent on Rotten Tomatoes with a consensus suggesting it managed to find its own footing in what is becoming a crowded genre.

Joseph and Holt recently spoke about a possible crossover with the show, "Runaways." Holt said "it makes sense" and that they "just like them as a cast" when it comes to "Runaways." Joseph also commented, saying he believed these superheroes crossed over in the comic book world as well.

Joseph is correct, as there was a storyline involving the superheroes teaming up to try to defeat a group known as the Pride. They are the main villains of the Runaways story. GameSpot said in their report that this was something that didn't pan out so well in the comics. However, maybe Marvel could make it work on the small screen format.

Making it all work

"Cloak & Dagger" is the first Marvel Cinematic Universe entry to be put on Freeform. The show "Runaways" was presented on Hulu. At the present moment, that makes the two shows seem worlds apart in terms of crossovers happening. Still, there could be a possibility if the networks can line things up for everyone that is needed.

As the ComicBook website mentioned, the shooting schedules are different when it comes to a regular television network and Hulu. Hulu doesn't go by the typical shooting schedules that other networks do, which could give some leeway to work things out. If the future schedule makes the actors available in addition to the production team(s), then maybe that "Runaways" crossover with "Cloak & Dagger" will take place in an upcoming season.
