David S. Goyer — the screenwriter behind Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, and Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice — is headed back to Gotham City for an all-new project to debut next year as the first podcast from Warner Bros. and DC’s multi-year partnership with Spotify.
The scripted drama Batman Unburied will be created by Goyer, who will also act as executive producer on the series alongside Keith Levine, president of Goyer’s Phantom Four production company. Phantom Four and Warner Bros’ Blue Ribbon Content will share development and production duties on the series.
Plot details for Batman Unburied remain under wraps, but Warners teases that the series “will explore the darker aspects of Bruce Wayne’s psychology” — perhaps unsurprising considering Goyer’s previous Batman projects.
Warner Bros. and Spotify announced their deal in June of this year, following a similar deal between Marvel and SiriusXM in late 2019. (via THR)
