Black Panther's Winston Duke will play Bruce Wayne/Batman in a brand-new series centered around the psychology of the Dark Knight, it has been confirmed.

Spotify, Warner Bros., and DC announced that Duke will take on the iconic role alongside Harry Potter actor Jason Isaacs as Alfred in Batman Unburied, an ambitious-sounding scripted podcast.

Take a look at Robert Pattinson in action as Batman below:

Batman Unburied is being executive-produced by David S. Goyer, who wrote/co-wrote Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, and The Dark Knight Rises. The all-new original story will "explore the darker aspects of Bruce Wayne's psychology".

"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," explains the official description.

"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."

There's no release date for Batman Unburied just yet, but we do know it'll launch exclusively on Spotify at some point in 2021/2022. It certainly sounds like it'll offer a completely fresh take on the character's well-established mythology, which should throw familiar villains and allies into fascinating new scenarios and cast them in a different light. I'm definitely looking forward to this one.

Between Batman Unburied, Robert Pattinson's The Batman, and multiple Batmen returning in The Flash, 2022 promises to be a big year for fans of the caped crusader.
