Batman Unburied - Release date, new episodes, cast, where to listen
Podcasts have slowly but surely become a staple for services like Spotify, with the company investing in this form of entertainment for the past few years, with the recently premiered Batman Unburied being amongst their most successful. 

In collaboration with DC, this new tale featuring the Cape Crusader will lean heavily on the more psychological aspects of the character, promising a thrilling story filled with twists and turns with every new episode.

The script was penned by none other than David S. Goyer, one of the masterminds behind Christopher Nolan's critically acclaimed Batman trilogy of films. English speakers won't be the only ones enjoying the Batman Unburied podcast, as it's being translated into six different languages. 

“David Goyer, this amazing cast, and the entire Batman Unburied team have created a Batman experience that stretches the narrative podcast medium to new levels along with your expectations on how immersive and compelling a Batman story can be,” said Peter Girardi, Executive Vice President, Alternative Programming, Warner Bros. Animation.

In short and without spoiling, the story sees Bruce Wayne forget he was ever Batman, a situation that forces detective Barbara Gordon to seek help from The Riddler to stop a serial killer from terrorizing Gotham. 

With all that said, let's take a look at everything you need to know about Batman Unburied on Spotify.
