Audible has today announced that the third season of the Hindi Audible Original podcast series Marvel’s Wastelanders will launch on November 8. The new season, Marvel’s Wastelanders: Black Widow, will feature Kareena Kapoor Khan as the voice of Black Widow/Helen Black and Masaba Gupta as Lisa Cartwright. Following the success of Marvel’s Wastelanders: Star-Lord with Saif Ali Khan and the launch of Marvel’s Wastelanders: Hawkeye with Jaideep Ahlawat and Prajakta Koli on September 29, the six-season audio epic's third instalment is ready for release.
This season captures the spirit of celebrating strong female leads. Almost thirty years after The Day the Villains Won (aka V-Day), Helen Black (voiced by Khan) arrives at her new apartment in The Onar, a 161-story apartment complex in what used to be Midtown Manhattan. Owned and operated by the U.S. American Secret Service S.H.I.E.L.D., The Onar has become the very embodiment of the dystopic wealth and inequality that’s engulfed New York City ever since V-Day.
On the same day that Helen moves into her apartment, Lisa Cartwright (voiced by Gupta) reports for her first day as a Junior Residential Security Analyst for Panopticog Solutions, a private security company hired by S.H.I.E.L.D. to monitor the residents of The Onar (without their knowledge or consent). Lisa is assigned to survey Helen’s corner of the 100 Block and quickly discovers that Helen Black is not at all who she says she is.
Marvel’s Wastelanders is the first collaboration between Audible and Marvel Entertainment and will be released simultaneously in French, German, Hindi, Italian and Japanese in the respective countries as a global audio experience with top-quality production, featuring renowned and high-profile actors in the roles of Marvel’s legendary super heroes.
