Richard Armitage will star as Logan in Marvel’s first scripted podcast, Wolverine: The Long Night.
The new project is being produced in partnership with Marvel New Media and Stitcher, and will be available exclusively 0on Stitcher Premium until late next year. In addition to Armitage as Logan, Wolverine: The Long Night will also star Mr. Robot‘s Brian Stokes Mitchell, Scott Adsit of 30 Rock, and Bob Balaban of Moonrise Kingdom.
Wolverine: The Long Night will consist of ten episodes, following agents Sally Pierce (Celia Keenan-Bolger) and Tad Marshall (Ato Essandoh) as they investigate a series of murders in a small Alaska town. Learning of an alleged serial killer who stalks the town, the agents team up with deputy Bobby Reid (Andrew Keenan-Bolger) to investigate their main suspect.
That suspect, of course, is Logan.
Wolverine: The Long Night will be written by Red Moon author Ben Percy, with sound design by Chloe Prasinos. The podcast will be recorded in a surround-sound environment, allowing for full immersion of actors and audience alike.
Marvel New Media vice president Dan Silver says that the Wolverine podcast project “brings our fans a whole new way to experience our iconic characters and the Marvel Universe. This tremendous cast will bring a thrilling level of intrigue and drama to our listeners,” he says.
“The character of Logan and this landscape make it the ideal premiere vehicle for us, and we’re excited to continue to explore the dynamic possibilities of the podcast medium.”
