Richard’s new audio project – Wolverine: The Long Night

Richard has tweeted the article that announced his involvement in a new podcast serial put out by Marvel called Wolverine: The Long Night.

 

The podcast will debut exclusively on Stitcher in Spring, 2018 and on other podcast platforms in Autumn, 2018.

The Hobbit and Hannibal star Richard Armitage will lend his voice to Logan for the podcast, which writer Ben Percy says will blend the mystery aspects of true crime podcasts like Serial and S-Town with the narrative tricks of True Detective — plus a dash of Clint Eastwood’s Unforgiven.

While the creative team behind Wolverine: The Long Night — director Brendan Baker, sound designer Chloe Prasinos and producers Daniel Fink of Marvel and Jenny Radelet of Stitcher — is currently working on perfecting the iconic snikt of Wolverine’s claws in podcast form, the most vital piece of the puzzle is already in place: Armitage as Logan.

“You think about when you read the comics as a kid: what was the voice that you heard in your head? And it was a lot of fun to sit in a room and have those conversations about, ‘Is it gruff enough? Is it playful enough? Does it just sound like Hugh Jackman?'” Silver says of the casting process. “And then, all of a sudden Richard’s name came up and everybody closed their eyes and it was like that moment when you all picture everybody hearing it in their head, and you went, ‘Oh, yeah, of course. That would be amazing.’ And yeah, he is — he’s perfect.”

Percy agrees, “When I heard that Richard was a possibility for the role, I knew he was the one. He’s a perfect match for Logan and brings so much soul and savagery to the project.”
