Marvel’s first-ever scripted Spanish-language podcast launches just in time for Hispanic Latinx heritage month
Alejandra López directs the 10-episode series, translated from ‘Marvel’s Wolverine: The Long Night’
Marvel Entertainment and SiriusXM launched Marvel’s first-ever Spanish-language scripted podcast Marvel’s Wolverine: La Larga Noche. The first two episodes of the 10-episode series are now available exclusively on the SXM app or by subscribing to Marvel Podcasts Unlimited on Apple Podcasts.
The series is a Spanish translation of Marvel’s first scripted podcast, Marvel’s Wolverine: The Long Night, which first aired in 2018. Now, listeners can dive into the weekly audio series with 30-minute episodes featuring new voiceovers from Joaquin Cosio (“Narcos: Mexico”), Guillermo García (“Mayans MC”), Brigitte Kali Canales (“Star Wars: The Clone Wars”), Iván Bernal, Bruno Bichir, Rafael Sigler, Ricardo Chavez, Marianna Burelli, and Alberto Zeni. The series is directed by burgeoning director Alejandra López (“The Blue Cape”).
Marvel’s Wolverine: La Larga Noche follows a string of mysterious deaths in Burns, Alaska, Special Agents Sally Pierce and Tad Marshall arrive to investigate. They soon find there’s more going on than meets the eye.

“Marvel’s Wolverine: La Larga Noche launches my audio directing career in Hollywood. To be given the responsibility to direct Marvel’s first scripted podcast in the Spanish language was an amazing opportunity that I’ll always cherish,” said director Alejandra López. “I’m eternally grateful to the team for trusting me, as a Puerto Rican woman, to bring to life one of their best-known characters through a podcast.”
Following the groundbreaking sound design of Marvel’s Wolverine: The Long Night, listeners will once again be immersed into the story as La Larga Noche utilizes the same ambisonic — or fully surround-sound — method of recording. Outdoor scenes were recorded in realistic-sounding locations including forests and a cabin.
Marvel’s Wolverine: La Larga Noche is available exclusively on the SXM App and Marvel Podcasts Unlimited on Apple Podcasts. Episodes will be widely available two weeks later on Pandora, Stitcher, and all major podcast platforms in the U.S.
