One of Gotham City’s most infamous citizens is getting his own podcast in the form of a Spotify audio series from DC Comics. ‘The Riddler: Secrets in the Dark’ will feature the clever Edward Nigma in his story which features his vigilante foe Batman.
“Today, Spotify, in partnership with Warner Bros. and DC, announced The Riddler: Secrets in the Dark will premiere on Tuesday, October 10 with all 8 episodes available exclusively on Spotify,” DC Comics reported in a statement. “The series will follow an unexpected adventure from the perspective of one of the most cunning DC Super-Villains in Gotham City, Edward Nygma voiced by Hasan Minhaj (The King’s Jester, Homecoming King, The Daily Show). Minhaj leads the cast, reprising his role from last year’s global sensation, Batman Unburied. You can check out a special video message from Hasan here.”
DC continued, “Colman Domingo (Fear The Walking Dead, Euphoria) joins the cast as Batman, who begrudgingly teams up with Minhaj’s Riddler to track down a masked vigilante on the loose in Gotham City. The mysterious character is murdering notorious DC Super-Villains all over Gotham City, and all clues point to the suspect being the Caped Crusader himself. Now, with a target on his head, The Riddler is forced to break out of Arkham Asylum and team up with Batman. The unlikely duo must solve the mystery before they too, become victims.”
David S. Goyer (Foundation, The Dark Knight trilogy), Keith Levine (Hellraiser, The Night House), and Gracie Wheelan (Batman Unburied) have been announced as executive producers for the audio series.
The Riddler was created by Batman co-creator Bill Finger and artist Dick Sprang. He would make his comic book debut in the 1948 ‘Detective Comics’ #140. Since his appearance, he has become one of Batman’s recognizable foes and has made numerous appearances in film, television, and online content.
