There’re so many character we can explore. I think the fan base will respond to this in an exciting way.

Last year, Spotify and DC also announced the David S. Goyer-helmed Batman: Unburied scripted podcast. Goyer wrote the story and will executive produce the show. Bat-fans are familiar with Goyer’s Bat-work, as he also scripted Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, The Dark Knight Rises, and Batman V Superman.
Batman Unburied will explore the “darker” aspects of Bruce Wayne’s psychology.
The show will be developed and produced by Goyer’s Phantom Four production company, along with Warner Bros’ Blue Ribbon Content. Phantom Four’s Keith Levine will also executive produce with Goyer.
Batman: Unburied has no formal release date yet. However, it is expected to come out sometime in 2021.
There are no release dates for the other DC podcast series, at time of writing.
