The Best DC Comics Animated Movies

List Criteria: Movie must be a DC comics animated film. No Live Action.

A list of the best DC animated feature length movies including new DC animated movies as well. These are feature length animated films based on DC comics such as Batman, Superman, and Green Lantern, characters that live within the DC Universe. In the 1990s, when live action movies based on DC Comics were in a slump, the Warner Bros' DC animation division took the reins, putting forth great quality animated films led by the likes of Paul Dini, Bruce Timm, and Alan Burnett. Today, animated films based on DC Comics are still popular. 
 

What are the best DC animated movies? Are the animated Batman movies like Batman: Under the Red Hood and Batman Beyond: The Return of the Joker your favorites? DC Comics is currently owned by DC Entertainment, which in turn is owned by Warner Bros. Entertainment. These may not be all the DC animated movies, but they are the greatest.
 

You may think this is a list of DC movies, but in fact it is list of DC animated movies only. So you won’t find the likes of The Dark Knight, or Man of Steel here, but you will for sure see all the Superman animated movies. Maybe once DC makes enough we can have a Justice League movies list.
