Marvel and Stitcher have announced their next superhero podcast partnership: an adaptation of the radio drama by Kurt Busiek and the limitation by Alex Ross Marvels series, in which news photographer Phil Sheldon tries to make ends meet in the chaos of a superhero world. The podcast marks the third collaboration between Marvel and Stitcher, which follows Wolverine: The Long Night and his sequel Wolverine: The Lost Trail.
The script Marvels series is intended to coincide with the 25th anniversary of the comic series, and it will follow much the same story as Sheldon (and other ordinary people without super powers) face the aftermath of an attempted invasion by the world-wasting Galactus and his fight with the Fantastic Four.
According to the announcement, the Marvels podcast will see that these common people "are starting a study to confirm or invalidate one of the most powerful conspiracy theories of all time." It sounds like the show will offer a more informed, personal view of the superhero genre, just like the two Wolverine series that looked to emulate modern podcasts S-Town and series-.
Just like the Wolverine shows, with a star The Hobbit & # 39; s Richard Armitage Marvels will also feature a star-studded cast, with Clifford "Method Man" Smith as Ben Urich, AnnaSophia Robb as Marcia Hardesty, Ethan Peck as Mr. Fantastic and Seth Barrish as Phil Sheldon. The podcast will be launched this fall and will be exclusively available on Stitcher Premium until 2020.
