You read it right. Richard Armitage is all set to play as the clawed mutant, Wolverine. But it’s not all you think it is, Marvel Entertainment announces that Richard will be playing the character of Wolverine but in a podcast.
It would be a 10-episode series and will be available exclusively on Stitcher and later on will be available on other podcast at a later date. Wolverine: The Long Night will follow agents tracking a serial killer in a small town in Alaska, who have just found their main suspect, a man known only as Logan.
“Their search leads them on a fox hunt through the mysterious and corrupt town,” according to Marvel’s press release.
Wolverine: The Long Night will be released on Stitcher in spring of 2018, and will hit wide release on other platforms in fall of 2018. All we have to say is, well played Marvel.
