Marvel Comics Announces Serial and True Detective-Inspired Wolverine Podcast

Broadway's Celia & Andrew Keenan-Bolger Set for New WOLVERINE Podcast

The series will debut exclusively on Stitcher Premium in Spring 2018 before hitting wide release on all podcast apps later in the fall. There's a long tradition of genre storytelling being put into the theater of the mind (just tune in to any number of BBC Radio Doctor Who tales, for example), so perhaps it was only a matter of time before spandex went auditory. Taking place in the fictional town of Burns, Alaska, the show follows two agents played by Celia Keenan-Bolger and Ato Essandoh, who investigate a series of murders where Wolverine is the prime suspect. Their search will not only uncover Logan's identity as Wolverine, but will take them on a journey through the small town's corruption.

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.

Dubbed Wolverine: The Long Night, this 10-episode series features an original storyline written by Benjamin Percy (Green Arrow) and starring Richard Armitage (The Hobbit) as the voice of the titular X-Man.

Sounds a little bit like a more awesome version of Serial, possibly.

Outdoor scenes for the series will be recorded in realistic-sounding locations including forests and a cabin. This means fans of Marvel and podcasts will be able to enjoy a dark, gritty Wolverine story like last year's "Logan" on-the-go. The actors will also be able to move and interact with each other like never before.

"Podcasting is an incredible, intimate medium that's flawless for telling stories, and I can't think of a better partner with whom to push the boundaries of scripted podcasts than MARVEL", said MIDROLL MEDIA CEO ERIK DIEHN. Marvel announced Tuesday that it's partnering with a popular podcast network to bring a serialized "Wolverine" story to life through audio. There will also be a cameo from the host of the Beautiful Stories from Anonymous People podcast, Chris Gethard. Let us know in the comments.
