No matter how much it breaks our heart, the Hugh Jackman era of Wolverine is over, and it's only a matter of time until a new actor steps in to take over the next chapter of Weapon X.
And, as it turns out, that actor is going to be Marvel alum Richard Armitage. Sort of.
According to Mashable, Richard will be lending his voice to the beloved X-Men character in Marvel's first-ever scripted podcast, Wolverine: The Long Night.
The series, which will take place over 10 episodes, will debut exclusively on podcast network Stitcher Premium next year, before branching out across platforms later on in 2018.
It will follow two agents, Sally Pierce and Tad Marshall, investigating a series of murders with Armitage's Logan as the chief suspect.
But The Long Night isn't about to become a standard comic book adaptation – writer Ben Percy has got bigger, more collaborative plans than that.
Teasing that the series will be similar to cult-favourite Serial, Ben revealed that the story will follow a familiar true-crime format, as well as stay true to its roots.
"There are all these broken pieces that are being fitted together, and a shifting set of suspects, and every episode you learn more, and at the same time recognise that you've been mistaken all along.
"It functions like a turnstile of mysteries," he hinted.
Hugh Jackman, who?
