You can listen to the trailer here.
The podcast is written by award-winning comic writer and novelist, Ben Percy (The Dead Lands, Green Arrow), and directed by Radiotopia’s Brendan Baker. The collaboration between Marvel and Stitcher brings together veteran heavy hitters from both the comic book and podcasting industries to breath life into this unique story.
On the themes and supernatural elements he is drawing from to use in Wolverine: The Long Night, Ben Percy had this to say:
“It’s very easy to turn up the volume on reality there. In addition to the crime investigation into the serial killer on the loose, there are also elements of the fantastic. And some of them have to do with Wolverine as his legend grows in this area, as people observe him bounding through the mists with packs of wolves; as they witness him save and end lives. I’m also drawing from the native legends in the area and from cultish mythology. There is a compound set up outside of the towns of Burns, Alaska, where the Aurora cult is located. And it’s unclear at first whether they are implicated in the murders that are occurring here and whether they might have powers, as they purport to — a connection to and a control over the fabric of light that plays over the winter skies.”
Wolverine: The Long Night is produced by Marvel’s Daniel Fink and Stitcher’s Jenny Radelet. The series stars Richard Armitage, Scott Adsit, Bob Balaban, Brian Stokes Mitchell, Zoe Chao, Chaske Spencer, Jordan Bridges, David Call, Michael J. Burg, and Lannon Killea.
The 10-episode series will air weekly exclusively on Stitcher Premium starting on March 12, 2018. It will receive a wide release across all podcasting platforms in the fall of 2018.
The 10 Best Episodes Of ‘Spider-Man: The Animated Series’
Peter Parker has had many incarnations throughout the fifty plus years of his existence but none more so than in animation. There’s the newer Ultimate Spider-Man series on Disney, the classic ’60s and ’80s Spider-Man cartoons and even the soon-to-be classic The Spectacular Spider-Man, but there is one series that will always have a place in my heart and was a major reason why this character resonates for so many people that grew up during the time it was released.
The ’90s Spider-Man series that run on Fox Kids was among my favorite cartoons growing up and even when I couldn’t get a hold of the issues they were adapting, it was the closest thing that I could get to reading the comics. How much of a presence did it have? The Spider-Man ride, which is arguably the best at Islands of Adventure at Universal Orlando, was based on this series and it’s got every bit of the charm that we saw on the small screen.
These episodes are classics so let’s countdown the best ones from the ’90s Spider-Man series. Click Next to get started!
