Marvel Entertainment announced the launch of their first original scripted podcast series with SiriusXM, Marvel’s Wastelanders: Old Man Star-Lord. The first two episodes will be available on June 1 and the 10-episode series will be released weekly.

This is the planned beginning of a multi-part _Marvel’s Wastelanders _podcast series, which will feature other Marvel heroes, including Old Man Wolverine, Old Man Hawkeye, and Grey Widow.

Based on the listed cast, this series is being given the Hollywood treatment.

Marvel’s Wastelanders: Old Man Star-Lord stars Timothy Busfield (The West Wing, For Life) as Star-Lord, Chris Elliott (Schitt’s Creek, Eagleheart) as Rocket, and Nadine Malouf (High Fidelity, The Looming Tower) as Cora. The series will also feature Patrick Page (Hadestown, upcoming The Gilded Age) as Kraven the Hunter, with Vanessa Williams (Ugly Betty, Desperate Housewives) as Emma Frost and Danny Glover (Lethal Weapon, The Color Purple) as Red.

This series follows a What-If…? type scenario as it finds Star Lord and Rocket the Racoon returning to Earth in a future where Doctor Doom has conquered it and turned it into a wasteland.

It should be noted that this is not the first official Marvel scripted audio series, that designation would belong to Wolverine: The Long Night, however, that was with Stitcher.

A YouTube trailer is available here and an audio-only version is available as well.

The series is produced in association with Wave Runner Studios and written by Benjamin Percy (Wolverine: The Long Night, Wolverine: The Lost Trail), directed by Kimberly Senior (Disgraced), and sound designed with original scoring by Mark Henry Phillips (Homecoming, Passenger List). The series is produced by Jenny Radelet Mast from Wave Runner Studios and executive produced by Dan Buckley, Joe Quesada, Daniel Fink, Sarah Amos, Stephen Wacker, Ellie Pyle, and Jill DuBoff from Marvel.

Fans will also have a chance to hear from and interact with cast members and special guests in the forthcoming exclusive VIRTUAL Marvel’s Wastelanders: Old Man Star-Lord Cast Town Hall Thursday, May 20, at 4:00 pm ET/1:00 pm PT via Zoom. Fans can register early for a chance to ask a question during the broadcast.
