DC Expands Deal With Spotify To Include New DC Based Podcast

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.

Check out the video clip from Spotify’s Stream On event for more information!

As time permits, I will try and listen to as many as possible.

I had a lot more time at one of my previous jobs, and since I left I haven’t had as much of a chance to listen to podcasts and audio dramas. I have a huge backlog now. :scarecrowlaughhqtas:

If this is successful, maybe Spotify will feature original music for DC. Either way, I’ll check it out, despite not being much of a podcast guy.

Finally a podcast I could listen to! The scripted ones could be like listening to the old Superman radio show!

Absolutely delighted at this news, super excited that they’re doing something new and adding an auditory element to comics. I don’t have much time or desire to sit down and watch or read stuff anymore, haven’t for a long time. But I listen to music and podcasts quite a bit. I love Spotify. Love old-fashioned radio shows and the like. So, yes. Give it to me. :raised_hands: Thank you DC.

There are two episodes of Wolverine’s podcast and one of Marvels. It took some getting used to because the lack of visual in story telling. But once you get into it, it almost seems more immersive. I can’t wait for this because they all seem to work around being a mystery. I think Batman detective mystery will be incredible.

I am very excited to hear this and hope it’s a big success.

On a related note, what podcasts do y’all recommend for someone that wants to hear general discussion of all things DC? I do a lot of gardening and would love to have a show to listen to that will discuss the latest shows, comics, movies or just fun discussions of characters.

Really excited about this. I listen to audiobooks and audio dramas all the time so I’ll be listening to this as soon as it releases. Hope Constantine, Zatanna, or other magical characters get episodes.
