Richard Armitage to Star As Wolverine in New Marvel Podcast

Broadway's Celia & Andrew Keenan-Bolger Set for New WOLVERINE Podcast

Instead, Wolverine will be voiced by Richard Armitage, who played Thorin Oakenshield in The Hobbit trilogy.

Mashable reports that Marvel's iconic character Wolverine will be the star of his own podcast come 2018. Written by comics scribe Benjamin Percy (Green Arrow), the story will follow two law-enforcement agents (Ato Essandoh and Celia Keenan-Bolger) as they investigate a series of murders in a small Alaskan town alongside a local deputy (Andrew Keenan-Bolger). The 10-episode serialized story will debut exclusively on podcast network Stitcher Premium in Spring 2018 as part of a partnership between Marvel and Stitcher. However, those that don't want to pay for the service can wait until the fall when it sees a wide release across all podcast platforms. But that's the takeaway today, as Marvel announced (via Mashable) that Wolverine will be the star of the company's first scripted podcast. "Their search leads them on a fox hunt through the mysterious and corrupt town".

Pokemon GO Weather Update Video Released
An early version of this article also said Pokemon would begin spawning today, which was inaccurate and has since been corrected. The feature can help catch Pokemon - the Water-type Mudkip might be easier to catch on a rainy day, as an example.

"Podcasting is an incredible, intimate medium that's flawless for telling stories, and I can't think of a better partner with whom to push the boundaries of scripted podcasts than Marvel", Erik Diehn, chief executive officer of Midroll Media, Stitcher's parent company, said in a statement to Mashable. Also, Wolverine is suspected of being a murderer? "This tremendous cast will bring a thrilling level of intrigue and drama to our listeners".

Having conquered just about every other form of media, Marvel's getting into the scripted podcasting game. "The character of Logan and this landscape make it the ideal premiere vehicle for us, and we're excited to continue to explore the dynamic possibilities of the podcast medium". Chloe Prasinos, who was formerly a producer for Gilmet's "Reply All", will oversee sound design. The podcast also features the voices of Chris Gethard, Scott Adsit, Bob Balaban, Jordan Bridges, Michael J. Burg, David Call, Zoe Chao, Brian Stokes Mitchell, Chaske Spencer and Lannon Killea.
