Marvel Entertainment partners with SiriusXM to premiere the first original scripted podcast series, Marvel’s Wastelanders: Old Man Starlord next month, starring Timothy Busfield, Chris Elliott, Nadine Malouf, Vanessa Williams, and Danny Glover.
‘In a shadowy alternate future of the Marvel Universe, the Villains have finally won and Heroes are nothing but a bad memory. Marvel’s Wastelanders: Old Man Star-Lord finds Peter Quill and Rocket a little paunchier, a little slower, and a lot saltier than they were during the glory days of the Guardians of the Galaxy. They quickly discover the Earth isn’t what it used to be either, when they crash land 30 years after Doctor Doom takes over a barren, desolate wasteland and all the world’s super villains seized control, including outlaw Ghost Riders and the bloodthirsty Kraven the Hunter.’
The house that Howard Stern built will debut the first two episodes June 1, 2021 on the SiriusXM app, Pandora, Stitcher, and all major podcast platforms, with new episodes posting weekly. The 10-episode series will be released weekly, kicking off season one of Marvel and SiriusXM’s multi-part Marvel’s Wastelanders podcast series, which will feature other Marvel heroes including Old Man Wolverine, Old Man Hawkeye, and Grey Widow.
Fans can pre-register right here to hear from cast members and the Marvel’s Wastelanders universe during the Virtual Marvel’s Wastelanders: Old Man Star-Lord Cast Town Hall on Thursday, May 20 at 4:00pm ET.
An audio rebroadcast of the VIRTUAL Marvel’s Wastelanders: Old Man Star-Lord Cast Town Hall will air on the SiriusXM Stars station (channel 109) on May 22 and 23.
“Marvel’s Wastelanders: Old Man Star-Lord is a story that throws you right into the action, antics and danger that fans of Star-Lord and Rocket know to expect, and the writers, cast and crew did not hold back. We couldn’t be prouder of how this story came together,” said Stephen Wacker, Vice President and Head of Content, Marvel New Media. “This series is just the first chapter of our larger Marvel’s Wastelanders plans with SiriusXM, and Peter Quill’s story is only the tip of the iceberg for our new Marvel Audio Universe. We can’t wait to share what’s next with you all.”
