Share

Given the popularity of the medium, the character, and all-things Marvel, Wolverine: The Long Night seems like it will be the first of many new stories. Marvel New Media, together with Stitcher, announced today that they are launching their first foray into this ever-expanding world of entertainment, and it will focus on none other than X-Men legend Wolverine.

According to the report, the story begins with two agents, Sally Pierce, played by Broadway's Celia Keenan-Bolger (THE CHERRY ORCHARD, THE GLASS MENAGERIE, PETER AND THE STARCATCH, LES MISERABLES), and Tad Marshall portrayed by Ato Essandoh, who arrive in the fictional town of Burns, Alaska, to investigate a series of murders. However, those that don't want to pay for the service can wait until the fall when it sees a wide release across all podcast platforms.

Scripted narrative podcasts have skyrocketed in popularity during this past year, and now Marvel is looking to get in on the action.

"Wolverine: The Long Night" will debut exclusively on Stitcher Premium in the spring of 2018. The main suspect, naturally, is everyone's favorite metal skeletoned Canadian mutant, Wolverine, voiced by Richard Armitage, probably best known for his role as Thorin Oakenshield in The Hobbit film trilogy.

Along with the news, Percy detailed the intent of writing Wolverine: The Long Night and what exactly the story will entail. "Their search leads them on a fox hunt through the mysterious and corrupt town". In the studio, actors will be recorded in a fully surround-sound environment. "This tremendous cast will bring a thrilling level of intrigue and drama to our listeners". The cast will also include Bob Balaban, Brian Stokes Mitchell, Chris Gethard, and 30 Rock's Scott Adsit, who himself was turned into a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent in the pages of Marvel's Deadpool.

Like most fans, writer Ben Percy is most excited with the casting of Richard Armitage as Wolverine.
