NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) - It's time for superheroes to come to Louisiana!

The super secret Disney TV series called Shadows is no longer a secret.  Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards and Louisiana Economic Development have confirmed the secret project is actually a new Marvel production called Marvel's Cloak and Dagger.

The show features a teen superhero couple who first appeared in Peter Parker The Spectacular Spider-Man  comic book series in 1982. The couple falls in love and notices that they have superpowers that work best when they're together.

Marvel's Cloak and Dagger began filming in NewOrleans this week.

New projects shooting in NOLA

Two more projects were added to the list to shoot in NOLA this month. Assassination Nation is a feature film starring Insurgent actress Suki Waterhouse. The thriller focuses on four teens from a small suburb who become victims of unwanted attention when an anonymous hacker leaks their personal information out to the world.

Claws is another TV series set to shoot in NOLA later this month. It's about the lives and the crimes of five women who work in a hair salon in Florida.
