This means fans of Marvel and podcasts will be able to enjoy a dark, gritty Wolverine story like last year's "Logan" on-the-go.

After conquering film, comics, books, TV and even gaming, Marvel is now setting its eyes on scripted podcasting. Teaming up with a local deputy, they zero in on a prime suspect in the corrupt and creepy town: Logan, AKA The Wolverine.

"Wolverine: The Long Night" will be Marvel's first scripted podcast, putting listeners in the middle of an intense story based on one of the most recognizable members of the X-Men.

Babasaheb Ambedkar and Sardar Patel, even making it hard for Dr Ambedkar to join the Constituent Assembly. Prime Minister said that the Congress has done great injustice to Dr.

According to Marvel's announcement, "The Long Night" follows agents Sally Pierce and Tad Marshall as they arrive in the fictional town of Burns, Alaska. "Part of the series is him recovering those memories and despite his attempts to separate himself from society, getting drawn into a situation where frontier justice is called for".

"It's very easy to turn up the volume on reality there".

Wolverine: The Long Night will debut on Stitcher Premium in spring 2018. "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". While Hugh Jackman isn't playing the cranky Canadian mutant, the show still has a stellar cast, including Richard Armitage (The Hobbit) as Logan, Scott Adsit (30 Rock), Brian Stokes Mitchell (Mr. Robot), and Bob Balaban (Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Moonrise Kingdom, and everything else). Marvel announced Tuesday that it's partnering with a popular podcast network to bring a serialized "Wolverine" story to life through audio. There's a long tradition of genre storytelling being put into the theater of the mind (just tune in to any number of BBC Radio Doctor Who tales, for example), so perhaps it was only a matter of time before spandex went auditory.
