The first trailer for the Marvel Comics podcast Wolverine: The Long Night has been released.

The podcast, which features an original story by comic book writer Ben Percy and directed by Brendan Baker, The Long Night features an original story that follows two federal agents Sally Pierce (Celia Keenan-Bolger) and Tad Marshall (Ato Essandoh)
who make their way to the fictional town of Burns, Alaska. The pair are in town to investigate a series of murders while teaming with a local Deputy. The corrupt town and its secrets are part of the mystery as the agents hone in on their main suspect, Logan.

Writer Ben Percy discussed the tone of the project saying;

“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 features Richard Armitage in the titular role. The show’s cast also includes notable actors Scott Adsit, Bob Balaban, and Brian Stokes Mitchell. Other cast members in the series include actors Zoe Chao, Chaske Spencer, Jordan Bridges, David Call, Michael J. Burg, and Lannon Killea. Chris Gethard is set to make a cameo appearance.

The 10 episode series begins weekly March 12, 2018, exclusively on Stitcher Premium.
