Method Man To Star In New Marvel Audio Series

The Marvel comic that’s titled “Marvels” is currently having its 25th anniversary and to celebrate they’ve partnered with the podcast company Stitcher to create a 10 episode-audio series for listeners to tune into.

“Marvels” is the 1994 brain child of Kurt Busiek as well as Alex Ross, and the company tapped the Wu-Tang Clan‘s Method Man to star in the upcoming podcast.

“Marvels” tells the story of the character Phil Sheldon, who according to a press release, is a photojournalist who “Navigates through the chaos caused by the Galactus invasion of New York City and explores what it means to be human in a universe inhabited by super heroes.”

Method will play the role of Ben Urich, an investigative journalist who works for the fictional New York newspaper The Daily Bugle.

This isn’t the first go-around for Meth and Marvel. Because in 2016 he wrote “Ghost Rider X-Mas Special The Infinite Comic” for them. The New York rhymer was also featured in Netflix’s now cancelled-series “Luke Cage,” also created by Marvel.

The podcast episodes will launch this fall and be available until 2020. Plus, those interested in tuning in will have to become members of Stitcher Premium.

Besides being the first break out star of the Wu-Tang Clan, Meth carved out a more than respectable acting career for himself.

His first film appearance was in 1997’s “Cop Land” with Sylvester Stallone and one of his most recent was in 2019’s “Shaft” with Samuel L. Jackson and Regina Hall.

In between that time, Meth has secured roles on the big and small screen in releases like “Belly,” “How High,” “Red Tails,” “The Wire” and “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.”

He now hosts the rap battle competition series “Drop the Mic,” which has been on for three seasons.
