The DC Universe is getting bigger as DC Comics and Warner Brothers have expanded their deal with Spotify to create a new podcast series featuring DC Comics characters.
Jim Lee, the chief creative officer of DC, revealed the deal at Spotify’s Stream On event. “There’s so many characters we can explore,” said Lee. “I think the fanbase will respond to this in an exciting way.”
The podcast, a scripted superhero series, will include characters such as Superman, Lois Lane, Wonder Woman, Joker, Catwoman, Katana, The Riddler, Batgirl, and Harley Quinn to name a few.
The first podcast to debut will be Batman Unburied, created by David S. Goyer, who co-wrote the script for The Dark Knight Rises and co-wrote Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Batman Unburied will explore the darker aspects of Bruce Wayne’s psychology and will debut exclusively on Spotify later this year.
