In 2020, Spotify announced a multiyear agreement with Warner Bros. and DC for a slate of narrative-scripted podcasts that explore the stories of your favorite superheroes and supervillains. The first project, Batman Unburied, will be released later this year. The new original series is being executive produced by David S. Goyer (The Dark Knight Rises).
Yesterday at Spotify’s Stream On event, Goyer joined Jim Lee, the Chief Creative Officer of DC, to give the world a look into how audio will bring a new dimension to DC’s universe of characters and stories. The duo discussed the prospect of the new Batman series alongside teasing other characters whose stories will be explored via audio, like Superman, Lois Lane, Wonder Woman, Joker, Catwoman, Katana, The Riddler, Batgirl, and Harley Quinn.
