Marvel New Media and top podcast listening service and content network Stitcher have announced Wolverine: The Long Night, the first-ever Marvel scripted podcast, launching in spring 2018. The 10-episode series will be available exclusively on Stitcher Premium until fall 2018, when it will see a wide release across all podcast platforms.
The show’s cast includes notable actors Richard Armitage, Scott Adsit, Bob Balaban, and Brian Stokes Mitchell.
The Wolverine: The Long Night story is a captivating hybrid of mystery and the larger-scale fantasy of the Marvel Universe. It follows agents Sally Pierce (Celia Keenan-Bolger) and Tad Marshall (Ato Essandoh) as they arrive in the fictional town of Burns, Alaska, to investigate a series of murders and quickly discover the town lives in fear of a serial killer. The agents team up with deputy Bobby Reid (Andrew Keenan-Bolger) to investigate their main suspect, Logan (Richard Armitage). Their search leads them on a fox hunt through the mysterious and corrupt town.
Also cast in the series are actors Zoe Chao, Chaske Spencer, Jordan Bridges, David Call, Michael J. Burg and Lannon Killia. Chris Gethard, host of the popular “Beautiful Stories from Anonymous People” podcast, also will make a cameo appearance.
Wolverine: The Long Night is written by award-winning comic book author Ben Percy and will be directed by Brendan Baker. Chloe Prasinos will oversee sound design. The series is produced by Daniel Fink of Marvel and Jenny Radelet of Stitcher.
