Marvel‘s taken their adamantium-laced Canuck pretty much everywhere possible: back in time, to other planets, into alternate dimensions — you name it, and the dude’s most likely “SNIKT!” there. Marvel has teamed up with podcast platform Stitcher to help Wolverine violate your ear holes with the 10-episode podcast Wolverine: The Long Night, and they’ve released an audio sample from the series for you to check out below.
Written by comic book author Ben Percy (Green Arrow, Teen Titans) and directed by Brendan Baker, with Chloe Prasinos overseeing sound design, the series will be available through Stitcher Premium on March 12 and other platforms later this year.
Wolverine: The Long Night follows agents Sally Pierce (Celia Keenan-Bolger) and Tad Marshall (Ato Essandoh) as they arrive in the fictional town of Burns, Ala., 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.
Scott Adsit, Bob Balaban, Brian Stokes Mitchell, Zoe Chao, Chaske Spencer, Jordan Bridges, David Call, Michael J. Burg and Lannon Killea also lend their voices to the series; with comedian/talk show host Chris Gethard (Beautiful Stories From Anonymous People, The Chris Gethard Show) set to cameo.
Here’s the audio trailer and official synopsis for Marvel’s Wolverine: The Long Night, premiering March 12th on Stitcher Premium and receiving a wide release across other podcast platforms in the fall.
Following a string of mysterious deaths in Burns, Alaska, Special Agents Sally Pierce and Tad Marshall arrive to investigate. They soon find there’s more going on than meets the eye.
The first scripted podcast from Marvel, starring Celia Keenan-Bolger and Ato Essandoh as Agents Pierce and Marshall, with Richard Armitage as Wolverine. Also featuring Scott Adsit, Bob Balaban, Zoe Chao, Andrew Keenan-Bolger, and Brian Stokes Mitchell.
