DC may not have had 100% success with their live-action film universe, but they’ve seen resounding success with their DC animated movie universe. Take a look!

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.

5 thoughts on “DC Animated Movie Universe Timeline

  1. Justice league dark is after suicide squad hell to pay. A comic series with the same name picks up after the movie and a dead character isn’t so dead in it. Constantine: city of demons is in the new 52 movie universe. Nightwing and Robin is a short clip thats concurrent with justice league throne of Atlantis.

    So the new 52 timeline is:
    Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox
    Justice League: War
    Son of Batman
    Justice League: Throne of Atlantis
    Nightwing and Robin
    Baman vs Robin
    Batman: Bad Blood
    Justice League vs Teen Titans
    Teen Titans: The Judas Contract
    Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay
    Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay
    Justice League Dark
    Constantine: City of Demons – The Movie
    The Death of Superman
    Reign of the Supermen
    Justice League vs The Fatal Five
    Batman: Hush
    Wonder Woman: Bloodlines

  2. I think this timeline is wrong in Under the Red Hood Jason is talking about “friends The Joker has crippled.” and one of the names is Barbara Gordon. I have not seen the killing joke but I do know that Barbra can walk so Under the Red hood is after the killing joke.
