STARZPLAY extends Marvel for Middle East fans with two exclusive brand-new series
Fans of everything Marvel can revel with the chance to watch two of the most anticipated superhero series, now available on STARZPLAY, the leading subscription video on demand (SVOD) service. The platform, which has become the favorite destination to watch the best content for over a million subscribers, has just added Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger and The Runaways, exclusively for subscribers in the MENA region.
Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger, created by Joe Pokaski, follows Tandy Bowen and Tyrone Johnson, two teenagers from very different backgrounds, who find themselves burdened and awakened to newly acquired superpowers which are mysteriously linked to one another. Tandy can emit light daggers and Tyrone can engulf others in darkness. They quickly learn they are better together than apart, but their feelings for each other make their already complicated world even more challenging.
And in Marvel’s Runaways, a group of teenagers band together to fight against their parents when the teens discover that they are part of an evil crime organization known as The Pride. After discovering their parents are super-villains in disguise, they decide to run away from their homes in order to atone for their parents’ actions and to discover the secrets of their origins. The hit series was created by Stephanie Savage and Josh Schwartz.
STARZPLAY is also home to five complete seasons of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, which runs parallel to the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU)’s films, featuring Agent Phil Coulson (The Avengers) as he assembles a small, highly select group of agents from the worldwide law-enforcement organisation known as S.H.I.E.L.D. The Primetime, Emmy-nominated series has been a consistent hit with fans and critics alike since its premiere in 2013.
And for those who prefer their superhero action viewing in shorter formats, they can watch some of the most popular Marvel titles on STARZPLAY, including Doctor Strange, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Punisher: War Zone and The Amazing Spider-Man 2, anytime, anywhere and on their device of choice.
