Marvel's First Podcast Ever is a Seriously Addictive 'Wolverine' Murder Mystery

Prepare to get hooked on 'The Long Night'

Logan Wolverine

After countless comic book interpretations, a starring role in nearly every X-Men movie, and his own solo movie trilogy, Wolverine’s found a new home. Marvel’s first ever scripted podcast, Wolverine: The Long Night, is available exclusively on Stitcher Premium. It follows a new story in the life of Logan, at a much different time in his life.

The Long Night is unlike any podcast – or superhero story – you’ve heard before. It’s a dark and multilayered mystery that re-establishes the myth of Logan before introducing him. For the first time in a long time, there’s a sense of wonder to the very idea of a super-powered being hiding out somewhere in the world.

This time around, Logan’s ended up in Burns, Alaska, hiding out from various nefarious entities. Logan tends to hide out a lot. Elsewhere, two agents investigate strange, grisly murders around the town. You have to think the two are somehow connected.

Suffice to say, we’re big fans already. The first four episodes are tense, and take their time setting a seriously grim, mysterious mood. In fact, Logan himself is almost nowhere to be found, but that only ends up playing to the show’s long-term strengths. We can’t wait to hear what happens next.

There’s no shortage of talent in the podcast, either. Marvel and Stitcher have partnered to bring Richard Armitage (The Hobbit) into the story as Logan/Wolverine. Supporting voice actors include Scott Adsit (30 Rock) and Chris Gethard, a podcast host favorite, whose Beautiful Stories from Anonymous People is also on Stitcher Premium right now.
