Starting with the critically acclaimed Batman: The Animated Series, the DC Animated Universe (DCAU) is what made many of us fall in love with DC’s characters.
What’s in the DC Animated Universe Timeline?
We have several DC animated universes. This timeline doesn’t cover all of them. But there is one that stands out above the rest. We present the DC Animated Universe, consisting of the Batman/Superman animated series, Justice League, Justice League Unlimited, Batman Beyond, etc. There were tie-in comics to these series that, as of right now, we do not include in the timeline. These tie-in comics are complex, and don’t always line up perfectly with the continuity of the shows they are based on. However, we will hopefully include them in future updates.
Where to start watching the DC Animated Universe?
We recommend you start with Batman: The Animated Series. This series came out in the ’90s, but remains a fantastic series nonetheless. Additionally, we highly recommend Justice League: Unlimited as another great entry in the series. But feel free to watch them all in chronological order for the best taste of what the DC Animated Universe timeline has to offer.
