According to Mashable, Richard Armitage (The Hobbit, Castlevania) is set to feature as Marvel's very own Wolverine in a brand new podcast serial which is set to hit the airwaves in Spring of 2018.

Marvel is already dominating in the box office, and now they're trying to break into the world of scripted podcasts with Wolverine: The Long Night.

Along with the news, Percy detailed the intent of writing Wolverine: The Long Night and what exactly the story will entail.

Wolverine: The Long Night will be directed by Brendan Baker, with sound design from Chloe Prasinos and Daniel Fink of Marvel and Jenny Radelet of Stitcher producing.

In a first for the Marvel universe, the company are crossing over into podcast territory with the announcement of a scripted Wolverine podcast.


Marvel is getting into the podcast game. RICHARD ARMITAGE will play Logan, who in the story becomes the main suspect in serial killings in an ALASKA town. Instead, it will launch available exclusively on Stitcher Premium, a podcast subscription service. Written by comics scribe Benjamin Percy (Green Arrow), the story will follow two law-enforcement agents (Ato Essandoh and Celia Keenan-Bolger) as they investigate a series of murders in a small Alaskan town alongside a local deputy (Andrew Keenan-Bolger). "Their search leads them on a fox hunt through the mysterious and corrupt town".

In an effort to bring a truly immersive aural experience to listeners, Marvel will record certain scenes in the outdoors. They make every translation of their rich universe of characters into new media fresh and interesting while still retaining the feel and spirit of the original comics, and, as a Marvel fan, I'm proud that we've helped them do it again in podcasting.

Scott Adsit, Bob Balaban, Brian Stokes Mitchell, Zoe Chao, Chaske Spencer, Jordan Bridges, David Call, Michael J. Burg, and Lannon Killea will also lend their voices to the series, while Chris Gethard, host of the "Beautiful Stories From Anonymous People" podcast, will make a cameo appearance. This tremendous cast will bring a thrilling level of intrigue and drama to our listeners. The series is produced by Daniel Fink of Marvel and Jenny Radelet of Stitcher.
