Spotify, Warner Bros. and DC Comics Announce Multi-Year Original Podcast Partnership
Comic fans in the UAE are set to enjoy original scripted narrative shows exclusively on Spotify
The vast universe of premier, iconic DC characters is coming to Spotify. Today, Spotify, Warner Bros. and DC announced a multiyear partnership to distribute and produce an original slate of all-new podcasts.
The partnership, which is the first to involve the intellectual property of all of the DC Super Heroes and Super-Villains, will provide Spotify with the first look at original, scripted, narrative shows that will live exclusively on the platform. In short – your favorite super heroes (and super villains) from Batman and Wonder Woman to Harley Quinn, Superman and the Joker may soon be the stars of your next favorite podcast. And like all podcasts on Spotify, everything DC Comics will be free and accessible to both Premium and Free users.
“As we continue to see explosive growth in podcasting around the world, we are thrilled to partner with Warner Bros. to build this slate of programming drawn from the worlds of DC and WB,” commented Dawn Ostroff, Chief Content and Advertising Business Officer, Spotify, who continued: “We could not be more excited to be working with Robert, Peter and the entire Warner Bros. and DC teams to deliver new exclusive stories to the more than 286 million Spotify users.”
“Warner Bros. has been synonymous with compelling and unforgettable storytelling for nearly a century, and we’re continuing to expand that legacy across all types of media platforms for our fans,” said Robert Steele and Peter Girardi, in a joint statement. “Spotify’s deep engagement with its consumers and commitment to prioritizing their podcast vertical makes them an ideal partner in this endeavor. We’re excited to bring beloved characters and franchises from DC and Warner Bros. into this new world and to use our storytelling prowess to redefine what’s possible in the scripted audio space.”
In addition to producing all-new series based on existing characters and established franchises from across Warner Bros. and DC, the companies will collaborate on new programming from original intellectual property – think never-before-heard crossover events in the future!
