Marvel Comics is getting into the podcast game! Marvel New Media, in partnership with the podcast service Stitcher, will release a serialized podcast called “Wolverine: The Long Night.” The podcast follows Sally Pierce and Ted Marshall, two federal agents sent to a small town in Alaska to help disacover who is responsible for a series of grisly murders. They team up with police deputy Bobby Reid in search of their lead suspect: Wolverine.
Produced by Marvel’s Daniel Fink and Stitcher’s Jenny Radelet, the series is directed by Brendan Baker and written by well known Comics scribe Ben Percy. (The Wilding, Teen Titans) The Long Night will star Celia Keenan Bolger and Ato Essandoh as Sally and Ted, respectively, as well as Andrew Keenan-Bolger as the local deputy that joins the team. The Hobbit’s own Richard Armitage is set to play Wolverine himself, and the show will feature other notable talent like Scott Adair, Bob Balaban, and Brian Stokes Mitchell
Wolverine: The Long Night is set to launch on Stitcher Premium in the Spring of 2018.
