It's no secret that the world of superheroes is ever-evolving and the folks over at DC Comics are ready to adapt to the changes and try new platforms of media to present their stories. We reported yesterday that the comic book giant will soon be venturing into audio streaming with the upcoming Batman: Unburied podcast drama. Very little is known about the project but it will be a reimagining of the caped crusader's story.

The Spotify-exclusive project will be headlined by Black Panther star Winston Duke who has officially been cast as Bruce Wayne/Batman. Joining him is seasoned veteran and Star Wars alumnus Jason Isaacs who will voice Bruce's trusty butler Alfred. The plot reads: "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 superhero 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."

Winston, who is taking on his very first DC project expressed his excitement over Batman: Unburied on social media.

It's safe to assume that the drama podcast will hit the popular streaming service sometime in 2022 and it makes all the sense in the world considering DC is having a massive Batman party with Robert Pattinson, Ben Affleck, and Michael Keaton all portraying the roles in live-action. I mean, I'm not complaining. There's no such thing as too much Batman.
Other details about Batman: Unburied are still being kept under wraps.
