Batman Unburied’s first two episodes were released on May 3, and Spotify’s The Podcast Charts reveal that it now sits on the top spot and has surpassed The Joe Rogan Experience, MrBallen Podcast: Strange, Dark & Mysterious Stories, Crime Junkie, and Anything Goes with Emma Chamberlain in the top five.
Goyer, who was a writer on Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, and Batman v Superman, is leading the project that stars the MCU’s Winston Duke as Bruce Wayne.
Joining Duke on the narrative-led podcast are Hasan Minhaj as The Riddler, Jason Isaacs as Alfred, Gina Rodriguez as Barbara Gordon, Lance Reddick as Thomas Wayne, Toks Olagundoye as Martha Wayne, John Rhys-Davies as Dr. Hunter, and Ashly Burch as Vicki Vale.
“A serial killer known as The Harvester terrorizes Gotham City, but Batman is not coming to the rescue,” Batman Unburied’s official description reads. “In fact, Bruce Wayne has no memory of being the Caped Crusader at all. Instead, Bruce is a forensic pathologist, performing the autopsy on the latest victim when he’s attacked by the killer himself.
“As Bruce’s obsession with the Harvester consumes him, Dr. Thomas Wayne, head of Gotham City Hospital, orders his son to take medical leave and seek treatment from an unusual psychologist, Dr. Hunter. With Batman missing in action, Detective Barbara Gordon is left with no other choice but to seek help from Gotham’s second smartest detective: The Riddler.”
New episodes will release each Tuesday exclusively on Spotify and each episode will be released in nine different languages.
