Wolverine's movie future may be in doubt, but his career in scripted podcasting is coming along nicely. After the success of the first Wolverine: The Long Night podcast took Marvel and Stitcher by storm, the sequel Wolverine: The Lost Trail was a no-brainer. Now, fans can enjoy the first trailer - and mark their calendars for its premiere.
With Richard Armitage back to voice the clawed hero, The Lost Trail leaves the northern wilderness of Alaska behind as Logan heads south to New Orleans in search of a missing friend, but winds up running straight into the villainous Marvel telepath known as 'Mastermind' instead. Luckily, he may have some help from an old Cajun friend by the name of Remy LeBeau--better known to X-Men fans as Gambit. Best of all? Fans of the first podcast can start enjoying the sequel in just weeks.
Sticher and Marvel have announced today that the 10-episode run of Wolverine: The Lost Trail will begin its weekly release schedule on Monday March 25th, 2019. As with the previous scripted podcast, episodes will be available exclusively to subscribers of Stitcher Premium, with a wide release coming later in the the year. Check out the brand new trailer for The Lost Trail:
Fans can get their first taste of Gambit as voiced by actor Bill Heck, most recently seen in Netflix's The Ballad of Buster Scruggs. But we wouldn't encourage fans to assume a team-up is guaranteed, considering how rarely Logan has shown a willingness to take on allies when a former lover's life is in jeopardy (especially not one with as much personality or playfulness as Gambit). Wolverine may be founding a new team of Savage Avengers in the comics, but if the first round of his scripted podcast is anything to go by, he's a lone wolf, first and foremost.
For more details, take a look at the official synopsis and the debut of original artwork for Lost Trail. The artwork gives listeners their first look at Logan and 'Marcus,' the new cast member who will be accompanying the hero into the depths of the Louisiana swamp in search of his own lost family member:
“Marvel’s Wolverine: The Lost Trail” is an epic quest that takes place in the Louisiana bayou. Following the events of “Marvel’s Wolverine: The Long Night,” Logan (Richard Armitage) returns to New Orleans in search of redemption, only to discover that his ex-lover, Maureen is nowhere to be found. And she's not the only one. Dozens of humans and mutants have gone missing, including the mother of a teenage boy, Marcus Baptiste. With Weapon X in close pursuit, Logan and Marcus must team up and follow a trail of clues that leads them deep into the gothic heart of the bayou, where they encounter biker gangs, Cajun thieves and a world of wonders that defies explanation. It is here that they find Greenhaven -- a refuge run by a powerful mutant named Jason Wyngarde.
Marvel's Wolverine: The Lost Trail begins the second season on March 25th, 2019 exclusively on Stitcher Premium. Episodes will come to wide podcast platforms later in the year, where all 10 episodes of Marvel’s Wolverine: The Long Night are currently available.
