A bit more on Richard Armitage / Wolverine: The Long Night

This is the kind of thing that makes me geek out: Wolverine: A Long Night is cited as an example of a current problem in marketing / monetizing podcast content (end of section subheaded “Clustering”). The Nieman Lab is Harvard University’s prestigious institute for journalism and the blog comments on current issues in journalism from a scholarly perspective. The Wolverine podcast may be a make or break for their marketing model. And this isn’t an abstruse issue — we were talking yesterday about the annoyance of waiting for more episodes.
Gulfnews: “But, no doubt, the star of the show is Armitage. Even if you’re not constantly hearing him, he gets into your head right from the start.”

Inverse (more on story): “In a way, the version of Logan we get in Wolverine: The Long Night is perhaps the most truthful we’ve gotten in recent memory. As wonderful as Hugh Jackman was in the role, especially in his final farewell in Logan, this is the dawning of a new era perhaps defined by a new kind of storytelling for characters like Wolverine, in at least one small way.”

  1. Yay!!! This is going to be ear candy in true Richard form. A play performed physically, yet listened to, and visualized through each individual’s imagination. I think the physicality, as well as the way the recording equipment has been placed around the studio, will add a great new aspect beyond that of a typical audiobook. I do wish that while branching out, and doing audio with various companies lately that it didn’t require additional purchases, and subscriptions. I know several, myself included who are not buying things nearly as quickly as they may have in the past because of the cost. Oh well, no one ever said he’d be a cheap date.

    • yeah, it’s been a bit much this last month or so. If you can handle it, this is supposed to become free this fall, so it might be worth the wait.
