Marvel and Stitcher to launch new exclusive fictional podcast this fall

Marvel is launching another fictional podcast show in partnership with Stitcher. The new project is titled Marvels and is due to debut this fall exclusively on the paid Stitcher Premium platform. It will be released to other podcast platforms in 2020.

The podcast is based on the four-part comic book Marvels by Kurt Busiek and Alex Ross. The cast includes Cliff “Method Man” Smith, AnnaSophia Robb, Ethan Peck, and Seth Barrish. On the production side, Lauren Shippen is the show’s writer, Paul Bae directs, and Mischa Stanton is overseeing sound design.

“Building off our award-winning momentum of Marvel’s Wolverine: The Long Night and its sequel Marvel’s Wolverine: The Lost Trail, the New Media team is thrilled to continue to push the envelope of Super Hero storytelling via the scripted podcast medium,” said Shane Rahmani, SVP and GM of Marvel New Media. “We are passionate about the space and feel we’ve brought the right cast, story, and intrigue in this latest installment.”
