Marvel Entertainment and SiriusXM are launching their first original scripted podcast series — “Marvel’s Wastelanders: Old Man Star-Lord” — with the first two episodes available starting June 1, 2021, on the SiriusXM app, Pandora, Stitcher, and all major podcast platforms.
“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,” “The Gilded Age”) as Kraven the Hunter, Vanessa Williams (“Ugly Betty,” “Desperate Housewives”) as Emma Frost, and Danny Glover (“Lethal Weapon,” “The Color Purple”) as Red.
The storyline takes place in an alternate future of the Marvel Universe where the villains have won. Peter Quill and Rocket are a little slower and a lot saltier than they were during their glory days with the Guardians of the Galaxy. However, they quickly discover Earth isn’t what it used to be either when they crash land 30 years after Doctor Doom and all the world’s super-villains have seized control, including outlaw Ghost Riders and the bloodthirsty Kraven the Hunter.
“’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 […] we couldn’t be prouder of how this story came together,” said Stephen Wacker, vice president and head of content for 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.”
The 10-episode series will be released weekly, kicking off the first season of Marvel and SiriusXM’s multi-part Marvel’s Wastelanders podcast series that will also feature other Marvel heroes, including Old Man Wolverine, Old Man Hawkeye (featuring Stephen Lang as Clint Barton), and Grey Widow (featuring Susan Sarandon as Natasha Romanoff).
