  • Wolverine Marvel Podcast

Marvel's dominance in the film world has shown the strength of their characters and stories, and with the clout and money the company now has, expanding into one of the most modern forms of storytelling seems like a no brainer.

The ten episode serialised story will air on podcasting platform Stitcher, available to subscribers of its "Stitcher Premium" service. The agents team up with deputy Bobby Reid (Andrew Keenan-Bolger) to investigate their main suspect, Logan (Richard Armitage).

The voice cast is pretty impressive too, and will include Richard Armitage (The Hobbit and Hannibal) as Wolverine along with Scott Adsit (30 Rock), Bob Balaban and Brian Stokes Mitchell (Mr. Robot).

According to the report, the story begins with two agents, Sally Pierce, played by Broadway's Celia Keenan-Bolger (THE CHERRY ORCHARD, THE GLASS MENAGERIE, PETER AND THE STARCATCH, LES MISERABLES), and Tad Marshall portrayed by Ato Essandoh, who arrive in the fictional town of Burns, Alaska, to investigate a series of murders. "Their search leads them on a fox hunt through the mysterious and corrupt town".

"The Long Night", writer Ben Percy says will the new Wolverine podcast will "blend the mystery aspects of true crime podcasts like Serial and S-Town with the narrative tricks of True Detective - plus a dash of Clint Eastwood's Unforgiven".
