Warner Bros, DC, and Spotify continue their partnership with a new roster of DC-themed podcasts featuring Wonder Woman, Joker, Catwoman, and more.
Scripted audio dramas based on Wonder Woman and Joker are among the new slate of DC-themed podcasts coming to Spotify.
New Superhero Podcasts Join Batman Unburied, Which Will Be DC’s First Podcast Produced By The dark knight risesDavid S. Goyer. DC and Spotify reached a multi-year agreement in 2020 to produce narratively scripted podcasts featuring DC superheroes and supervillains.
Goyer joined DC Creative Director Jim Lee at Spotify’s Stream On event to discuss how they like podcasts. Batman unearthed will bring a new dimension to these classic characters and to the DC Universe. Some of the characters that will appear in future Spotify podcasts include Superman, Lois Lane, Wonder Woman, Joker, Catwoman, Katana, The Riddler, Batgirl, and Harley Quinn.
“I’ve been fortunate to have influenced the way the audience sees Batman, and now it’s really fun to have a hand in the way the audience listens to Batman,” Goyer said. “With Batman unearthed, we’re going to do a deep dive into Batman’s unconscious mind and in his dream state, really leaning on the idea of playing around with the idea of surround sound. “He then scoffed at the idea of Joker whispering things into the listener’s ear, which he described as “a nightmare”.
“We have a ton of other amazing characters,” added Lee. “We are planning to do a podcast of Catwoman / Katana, Superman and Lois Lane, Wonder Woman, Batgirl, Riddler … there are so many amazing characters that we can explore. This is a long-term partnership between Warner Bros, DC and Spotify, and I think that the fanbase will just respond to this in an exciting way and embrace it as something new and novel, and it will complement all the other forms they take in the DC Universe. “
Batman unearthed It will be released later this year on Spotify.
