As Justice League Hits Screens and Gotham by Gaslight Trailer hits online we look at the Top Ten DC Animated Movies So Far

by James Murphy


When it comes to the greatest animated films of all time, the DC universe has been a major contributor. Although Marvel has greatly excelled against competitors in its cinematic universe, DC has constructively established an animated movie empire, which has spawned over the years. Interestingly, all their films have been adapted from their comic storylines to suit a mature audience. When compared to superb live action movies like Donner’s Superman or Bat Fleck, these flicks might not be getting the same exposure. However, it doesn’t mean they are not as good-if not superior and more engaging.

While almost every one of them has been a major hit at the box office, there are still few that were just “too” good. These ones are a must watch for if you haven’t seen them yet. With this in mind, here are the 10 best DC animated films list, which includes your favourite superheroes.

Batman: Mask of the Phantasm

This thriller is not just the greatest DC animated film of all time; it is also the no.1 choice in the animated film feature. The mere fact it’s still making the headlines 24 years after the first release shows this movie is a true gem.

Batman: Under the Red Hood

The methods and ideology of our favourite superhero, Batman is challenged by a menace, Red Hood, who is later revealed as Todd in disguise. If you support the Dark Knight, then this movie is certainly a must watch for you.

Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox

Compared to all the multiverse and multiple superhero collections we have come across so far, none tells a clearer story than The Flashpoint Paradox. And it does that in just 81 minutes. The movie is a real stunner and definitely preferable to the likes of Geoff Johns and Andy Kubert’s arc. Seeing the live-action wouldn’t be a bad idea.

Justice League: War

All the hype for the Justice League definitely paid off in this one. Justice League: War presents the story in the most amazing style. The best theme song; the perfect blend of superhero characters; and an incredibly solid story origin-you won’t find a better Justice League movie with free online slots no deposit win real money.

Batman: The Dark Knight Returns

The legendary action packed movie is a perfect art translation of comic Batman storyline. Director, Jay Olivia once again delivered to the Batman “community” with this sensational 148 minutes thriller.

Wonder Woman

If you were really stunned by Patty Jenkins’ live action thriller like many of us, then you shouldn’t miss this animated feature by DC, Wonder Woman. The incredibly massively scoped epic adopts a solid story origin with the finest selection of characters. There is no way you won’t enjoy this one.

Batman: Assault On Arkham

Don’t be deceived by the title. Although the Dark Knight is featured in the film, he only plays a supporting role. Instead, the movie is about the violent tale of nefarious Suicide Squad group. Aside from the title, the movie was a suicide story we were all happy to see.

Superman: Doomsday

Although we would never wish for our superhero to die, his death was the major defining moment of this intriguing feature. Based on the storyline of the comic; Superman: Doomsday is the perfect show of justice. The story origin couldn’t have been better.

Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker

We all thought the coming of Batman Beyond: The Coming of the Joker was mere to cash-in on the popular successful series. However, we were wrong. The Joker is finally back and the struggle continues.

Teen Titans: The Judas Contract

The Judas Contract is the latest release in the Teen Titans series. It is supposedly one of the most adventurous collections, offering the perfect blend of drama, tragedy and comedy.

While they are definitely other great animated films in DC universe, the ones above are worth your time and money. You should add them to your movie collections if you haven’t.
