Cloak & Dagger
During an interview with /Film, showrunner Joe Pokaski stated “we might not ever see skeletons” inside the Dark Dimension, but weirder things will appear “as people start getting comfortable” with the concept.
There’s a couple steps that we’re going to be exploring over the course of the series but the very first elements of it, we wanted Tyrone to be able to witness people’s fears and Tandy to be able to witness people’s hopes. So we wanted to just tweak it a little and make it seem a little unworldly but we’re going to get a little bit weirder and weirder as people start getting comfortable. We might not ever see skeletons inside it but I think the idea is the fun of the series is Tandy and Tyrone will learn more and more about what they’re capable of over the series.
