Marvel’s first ever scripted podcast is coming up, Wolverine: The Long Night, and in partnership with Stitcher, the company has released a trailer for the 10-episode series. The podcast will air weekly beginning March 12, 2018 exclusively on Stitcher Premium. Afterward, the podcast will see a wide release across all podcast platforms in Fall 2018.
Wolverine: The Long Night is described by Marvel as a “hybrid of mystery and the larger-scale fantasy of the Marvel Universe” and follows agents Sally Pierce (Celia Keenan-Bolger) and Tad Marshall (Ato Essandoh) as they arrive in Alaska to investigate a series of murders. Fear of a serial killer leads them to team up with deputy Bobby Reid (Andrew Keenan-Bolger) to investigate their main suspect, Logan (Richard Armitage). The show’s cast also includes actors Scott Adsit (“30 Rock”), Bob Balaban (“Moonrise Kingdom”) and Brian Stokes Mitchell (“Mr. Robot”).

Stitcher and Marvel have assembled a writing and production team from both the comic book and the podcasting industry, including Ben Percy (“The Wilding,” “Red Moon”), Brendan Baker (formerly a producer for Radiotopia’s “Love & Radio”). Chloe Prasinos (formerly a producer for Gimlet’s “Reply All”) oversees sound design. The series is produced by Daniel Fink of Marvel and Jenny Radelet of Stitcher.
