Warner Bros. DC & Spotify made a deal last year to move forward with an all-new narrative podcast that will show Batman in a new light. The new podcast is called ‘Batman Unburied‘ & will be executive produced by David S. Goyer (The Dark Knight Rises, Man of Steel, The Sandman) and his company Phantom Four. To top it off, it was announced today that Winston Duke (Black Panther, US, Spenser Confidential) will be voicing Bruce Wayne/Batman with Jeremy Isaacs (Harry Potter) voicing Alfred Pennyworth.
The synopsis to the podcast is as follows:
Batman Unburied is a psychological thriller that takes us on a new journey deep into the mind of Bruce Wayne introducing a slew of dark twists and turns with a number of classic Batman Super-Villains. When audiences meet Bruce Wayne he is a forensic pathologist, working in the bowels of Gotham Hospital and tasked with examining the victims of The Harvester, a gruesome serial killer preying on Gotham’s citizens. Not only will the Super-Hero be forced to face his own mental demons, but he will also have to overcome them in order to save the citizens of Gotham as his alter-ego Batman
