What’s on the DC Animated Movie Universe Timeline?


The “official” DC Animated Movie Universe timeline consists of the films that started with Justice League: War and continued (with a few exceptions) since. In fact, most of the films on this timeline are not part of the official animated movie universe. However, we love to create our own fan continuities. We don’t like to leave anything out. So this timeline assembles all of the DC Animated Movies into one timeline. There are several continuities on this timeline, and we mark those in the ‘Series’ column. We mark the main continuity as “canon.”

Think about it this way. Think of each of the top films listed on this timeline as separate universes. With Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox an event occurs that merges and resets the timeline. At that point we get the main continuity. Additionally this timeline also includes films that you will find on other timelines, like the Arkham universe.

Where do I start?

Additionally, this timeline should actually provide a decent viewing order for these films. We also recommend watching them by release date. But if you only want to watch the canonical films in  he DC Animated Movie Universe timeline, you should start where the ‘Series’ column specifies films as canon.
