Showcasing the very best in new Audio Drama

Wolvie Goes Audio!

You know it had to happen! The Nerdist presents the latest in an audio drama adventure series with Wolverine.

Marvel and Stitcher announced in late 2017 that they’d teamed up for a new audio drama podcast, Marvel’s first scripted podcast endeavor, featuring Wolverine. Ahead of March’s debut episode of Wolverine: The Long Night, Marvel has released the first audio trailer for the ten-episode series, which finds Wolverine far removed from the world of the X-MenThe Hobbit star Richard Armitage is providing Wolverine’s voice for this story, and the trailer indicates that even Logan isn’t sure about what kind of man he really is.

Wolverine/Logan will be the star of his own story, but he will also share the spotlight with FBI agents Sally Pierce and Tad Marshall. The Long Night is set in Burns, Alaska, where a savage serial killer has left of a trail of terror in their wake. An amnesiac Logan is the town’s prime suspect, and the trailer indicates that his claws and his kinship with wolves have created a local mythology about his powers. Pierce and Marshall lead the hunt for Logan, but they may find that they have common ground with him when the town’s dark secrets come to the surface.

Green Arrow writer Ben Percy scripted Wolverine: The Long Night for director Brendan Baker. In addition to Armitage, the cast is headlined by Celia Keenan-Bolger as Agent Pierce and Ato Essandoh as Agent Marshall, with Andrew Keenan-Bolger, Scott Adsit, Bob Balaban, Brian Stokes Mitchell, and more in supporting roles.

Wolverine: The Long Night will premiere on Stitcher Premium on March 12 before getting a wider release on all podcast platforms this fall.
