Richard Armitage is Wolverine In Marvel's New Scripted Podcast

Marvel Gets Into Fiction Podcast Game With Wolverine: The Long Night

Their main suspect? Logan (Armitage) aka Wolverine, of course.

Marvel is launching its first scripted podcast, with Richard Armitage (The Hobbit, Hannibal) voicing Wolverine.

Written by award-winning DC Comics writer, Ben Percy, the story will be a self-contained plot spanning 10 episodes. 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.

The show will feature a diverse array of vocal talent, with a cast that includes Celia Keenan-Bolger as agent Sally Pierce, Ato Essandoh as agent Tad Marshall, and Andrew Keenan-Bolger as Burns deputy Bobby Reid.

Wolverine: The Long Night is set to come out Spring 2018 on Stitcher Premium.

"Their search leads them on a fox hunt through the mysterious and corrupt town", according to Marvel's press release.

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

Wolverine is always telling us how he's the best there is at what he does, but we never guessed that what he does is host podcasts. "This tremendous cast will bring a thrilling level of intrigue and drama to our listeners".

Erik Diehn, CEO of Midroll Media (parent company of Stitcher) added, "The arrival of Wolverine and his many fans to podcasts and Stitcher is truly a signal that this medium is a major part of the American media landscape". Marvel announced Tuesday that it's partnering with a popular podcast network to bring a serialized "Wolverine" story to life through audio.

Other performers who will appear on the show are Zoe Chao, Chaske Spencer, Bob Balaban, Jordan Bridges, Scott Adsit, David Call, Brian Stokes Mitchell, Michael J. Burg, Lannon Killea, and Chris Gethard. That being said, it would be nice to see more fiction podcasts expand beyond the oversaturated genres of crime and horror.
