On top of that, they're hoping the finished product is just the beginning of an interconnected Marvel Podcast Universe. The series will debut exclusively on Stitcher Premium in Spring 2018 before hitting wide release on all podcast apps later in the fall. The beloved X-Men character will headline Marvel's first-ever scripted podcast to be titled WOLVERINE: THE LONG NIGHT. Armitage - Thorin Oakenshield himself - will be taking on the titular character, which seems like a flawless fit.
Wolverine: The Long Night follows agents Sally Pierce (Celia Keenan-Bolger) and Tad Marshall (Ato Essandoh) as they arrive in Alaska to investigate a series of murders and quickly discover the town lives in fear of a serial killer. The twosome join forces with deputy Bobby Reid, Broadway's Andrew Keenan-Bolger (TUCK EVERLASTING, NEWSIES, MARY POPPINS), to investigate their main suspect, Logan (Richard Armitage). Their search will not only uncover Logan's identity as Wolverine, but will take them on a journey through the small town's corruption.
Sounds a little bit like a more awesome version of Serial, possibly.

Marvel is known to tell compelling stories with fascinating characters using all different kinds of mediums. "This tremendous cast will bring a thrilling level of intrigue and drama to our listeners".
"Podcasting is an incredible, intimate medium that's ideal for telling stories, and I can't think of a better partner with whom to push the boundaries of scripted podcasts than MARVEL", said MIDROLL MEDIA CEO ERIK DIEHN.
Comic mainstay Ben Percy (The Wilding, Red Moon) will be writing all 10 episodes, and Brendan Baker (Radiotopia's Love & Radio) will direct.
Also cast in the series are actors Zoe Chao, Chaske Spencer, Jordan Bridges, David Call, Michael Burg and Lannon Killea. That being said, it would be nice to see more fiction podcasts expand beyond the oversaturated genres of crime and horror.
