Marvel has dropped a teaser trailer for Wolverine: The Long Night, a scripted podcast starring The Hobbit star Richard Armitage as the X-Men’s Wolverine. The teaser, which is available to listen to on Stitcher's website, teases a murder mystery that appears to lead back to Logan.
The trailer opens with a man recalling an encounter with Wolverine. He describes Logan as a wild man with a bloody face who runs through the woods with wolves. The teaser then cuts to a flurry of other voices, which refer to Wolverine's claws and the body of a young girl who was discovered cut "in ribbons" on a hiking trail. It also provides the first clip of Armitage in his role as Logan.
The synopsis for Wolverine: The Long Night reads:
The story begins with two agents, Sally Pierce (Celia Keenan-Bolger) and Tad Marshall (Ato Essandoh), who arrive in the fictional town of Burns, Alaska, to investigate a series of murders. The duo team up with deputy Bobby Reid (Andrew Keenan-Bolger) to investigate their main suspect, Logan (Armitage), but that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
Written by Green Arrow scribe Benjamin Percy, the Wolverine: The Long Night 10-episode series will launch on Stitcher Premium on March 12, before arriving on other podcast platforms in the fall.
