DC’s many universes feature cool renditions of everyone's favorite caped crusaders.

One of the greatest and most influential graphic novels of all time is Frank Miller’s Batman: The Dark Knight Returns.

15. ‘Teen Titans Go! To the Movies’ (2018)

Runtime: 1h 27m

Rating: 91% (Rotten Tomatoes)

The slapstick humor and witty rebuttals featured in Teen Titans Go! Became that much better once it got the big Hollywood big screen treatment for Teen Titans Go! To The Movies. Robin, Cyborg, Starfire, Raven, and Beast Boy broke down the fourth wall in a major way as they starred in a film that’s all about them trying to get their own superhero film made. Of course, their grand plans result in pure mayhem being unleashed due to the presence of familiar DC heroes and villains. The cameos put on display here are worth the price of admission alone (STAN LEE’S EVEN IN HERE!).

Watch on Prime Video

16. ‘Superman vs. the Elite’ (2016)

Runtime: 1h 14m

Rating: 83% (Rotten Tomatoes)

Don’t let this film’s less-than-impressive art design keep you from its engrossing tale. Superman vs. the Elite features “The Man of Steel” in a movie that puts his honorable approach to superheroism against those of the more brutal means employed by The Elite. This movie’s messaging will even have you in a conundrum when it comes to choosing the right way to dish out street justice. The adult themes put into play here and the intense action sequences that spring up make Superman vs. the Elite one of Supes’ best animated efforts.

Watch on HBO Max

17. ‘The Lego Batman Movie’ (2017)

Runtime: 1h 46m

Rating: 90% (Rotten Tomatoes)

If you don’t laugh at anything The Lego Batman Movie presents, then your soul is simply devoid of any happiness. The jokes come a mile a minute here and they’re sure to elicit giggles out of old-school DC fans and kids that enjoyed every minute of 2014’s The Lego Movie. Batman pops up in his cockiest form to date here, but he’s forced to change up his game plan once he meets his new sidekick. Following “The Dark Knight” as he adjusts to his new allies and comes to blows with his biggest foes becomes that much better as you watch everyone interact in a world full of Lego studs.

Watch on HBO Max

18. ‘Justice League Dark’ (2017)

Runtime: 1h 16m

Rating: 80% (Rotten Tomatoes)

We rarely get to see the supernatural side of the DC Universe get its shine on the small and big screen. Justice League Dark brings that intriguing corner of DC’s superhero realm into focus and excels because of it. Batman is forced to join forces with John Constantine’s band of magic wielders in an attempt to eliminate an overwhelming plague. The character dynamic that plays out between everyone leads to some tense moments, plus the violence factor is high enough to satiate action movie buffs.

Watch on HBO Max

19. ‘Justice League: Crisis On Two Earths’ (2016)

Runtime: 1h 12m

Rating: 73% (Rotten Tomatoes Audience Score)

This film has it all: memorable voice acting, an engaging plot, and plenty of high-octane clashes between DC’s biggest heroes. It just so happens that those battles take place against those heroes’ evil counterparts from an entirely different universe. Justice League: Crisis On Two Earths focuses on the heroic efforts of a good version of Lex Luthor (crazy, we know!) as he adopts the aid of the Justice League in order to take down the Crime Syndicate.

Watch on HBO Max

20. ‘Justice League: The New Frontier’ (2008)

Runtime: 1h 15m

Rating: 71% (Rotten Tomatoes Audience Score)

Imagine if you will a world in which the Justice League rises to prominence and fights alongside the government that remains wary of them and combat war veterans. And to make this premise even crazier, imagine that that whole scene takes place in the 1950s. Justice League: The New Frontier adopts all those elements and handles them well by featuring a retro art style, the initial formation of the Justice League, and a sophisticated approach to storytelling.

Watch on HBO Max

21. ‘Teen Titans: The Judas Contract’ (2017)

Runtime: 1h 16m

Rating: 83% (Rotten Tomatoes)

The main story arc that put the Teen Titans on the map gets lovingly recreated here. Teen Titans: The Judas Contract follows the young superhero squadron during their clash with Deathstroke and a mysterious religious cult. When they’re joined by a new member, their lives become upended by even more turmoil. The...well... “interactions” between Deathstroke and that new Teen Titans member are a bit uncomfortable. But the rest of the film stands tall thanks to a mix of great fights and a mature retelling of one of DC’s best storylines.

Watch on HBO Max

22. ‘Batman: Mask of the Phantasm’ (1993)

Runtime: 1h 16m

The animation, the storytelling, the dialogue, and everything in between are masterfully done here.

Watch on HBO Max

23. ‘Batman: Return of the Joker’ (2000)

Runtime: 1h 10m

Rating: 100% (Rotten Tomatoes)

There’s just something incredible about the films that expand the Batman universes put forth by their cartoon series. Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker reprises the characters introduced in the beloved late 90s show and adds in the boisterousness of a returning Joker. This film showcases Bruce Wayne and Joker’s obsession with each other in great detail, plus it gives both Batmans a proper sendoff within the Batman Beyond universe.

Watch on HBO Max

24. ‘All-Star Superman’ (2011)

Runtime: 1h 15m

Rating: 80% (Rotten Tomatoes)

If you’ve read the All-Star Superman comics themselves, then you know just how much of a gripping tale it is. In animated movie form, it handles good old Supes' last days on Earth with care just like the source material did years beforehand. All-Star Superman tells the grand tale of a superhero that tries to fulfill all his dreams after being diagnosed with sun radiation poisoning.

As you await Superman’s eventual passing, you’ll get sucked into all the madness happening around him due to Lex Luthor’s meddling. And you’ll definitely shed a tear during Superman’s final sacrifice for the people of Earth.

25. ‘Batman: Year One’ (2011)

Runtime: 1h 4m

Rating: 88% (Rotten Tomatoes)

The adult-oriented animated Batman films clearly stand out as the best entries to date. Batman: Year One provides even more proof of that widely held belief. Just like the graphic novel it was adapted from, this film follows Bruce Wayne’s initial transformation into the superhero moniker we all know so well and pre-commissioner James Gordon’s move to Gotham City. While this film’s runtime is shorter than one would expect, it still manages to make the most of its time thanks to some compelling interactions between Batman and Gordon. Plus the action sequences also impress.

Watch on HBO Max

26. ‘Superman/Shazam!: The Return of Black Adam’ (2010)

Runtime: 22m

Rating: 62% (Rotten Tomatoes Audience Score)

While shorter than most of the picks on this list, this superhero team-up film ends up being a fun watch nonetheless. Billy Batson’s grown-up superhero persona links up with Superman in order to defeat the overwhelmingly powerful Black Adam. This movie is light on a whole lot of deep storytelling—it quickly gives us Shazam’s origin story and gets right to the hard-hitting action between three of the most powerful superheroes the DC Universe has ever seen. The stakes are certainly high for this one.

Watch on Prime Video

27. ‘Suicide Squad: Hell To Pay’ (2018)

Runtime: 1h 31m

Rating: 88% (Rotten Tomatoes)

Amanda Waller’s Task Force X has been all over the big screen and increased its popularity tenfold.

If you’ve played the Batman: Arkham games, then you’ll get a kick out of watching all the madness unfold between Task Force X, Batman, and a few additional members of his Rogues Gallery. Batman: Assault on Arkham plays out like a madcap heist film that’s full of dark humor, likable anti-heroes, and explosive action scenes.

Watch on HBO Max

29. ‘Ultimate Avengers: The Movie’ (2006)

Runtime: 1h 12m

Rating: 60% (Rotten Tomatoes Audience Score)

The very first Ultimate Avengers film started a strong trend for Marvel’s dedicated move to produce animated superhero movies that appealed to its older fanbase. The early origins of Marvel’s most iconic superhero team play out here and come together in a riveting manner. Aliens invade Earth, which gives General Fury every reason in the world to call on the aid of Captain America, Iron Man, The Hulk, Thor, Black Widow, Giant-Man, and The Wasp. This strong introduction to the Ultimate Avengers team hits on all the right notes you’d expect from a quality animated film.

30. ‘Planet Hulk’ (2010)

Runtime: 1h 21m

Rating: 56% (Rotten Tomatoes Audience Score)

If you read the Planet Hulk comic book arc (and even if you haven’t!), you have to give this quality animated movie adaptation a thorough watch. Especially since it features a wild clash between the big green guy and Beta-Ray Bill! So here’s how the story goes - Bruce Banner’s green alter-ego has caused far too much destruction on Earth, which forces some of his contemporaries to send him off the planet.

Hulk soon ends up crash landing on a planet that’s ruled by a tyrant, who forces the green anti-hero to entertain him and his followers during coliseum battles. In a bid to fight back against that tyrant and free his fellow warriors from captivity, Hulk joins the resistance and struggles to regain his and their freedom.

31. ‘Justice League vs. Teen Titans’ (2016)

Runtime: 1h 18m

Rating: 80% (Rotten Tomatoes)

So who would win in a fight: the youthful Teen Titans or the almighty Justice League?

Once the Justice League falls under the possession of the demon/father of Raven Trigon, Robin and the rest of the Teen Titans must band together to break them out of their enslaved state. What ensues is an action-packed affair that’s way more violent than you’d expect.

32. ‘Justice League Dark: Apokolips War’ (2020)

Runtime: 1h 30m

Rating: 100% (Rotten Tomatoes)

Earth’s decimation at the hands of Darkseid and his overwhelming forces creates an unlikely alliance between members of the Justice League and its Dark spinoff team. The superviolent crusade against the all-powerful New God is equal to the epic superhero vs. super-villain encounters that took place in Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame, which is certainly high praise. Justice League Dark: Apokolips War is an incredible wrap-up of the DC Animated Movie Universe and provides an ending that is sure to satisfy.

Watch on HBO Max

33. ‘The Death of Superman’ (2018)

Runtime: 1h 21m

Rating: 93% (Rotten Tomatoes)

2018’s The Death of Superman is pretty much a modern retelling of the comic book to film adaptation known as 2007’s Superman: Doomsday. And to be quite honest, this new take on one of the comic book medium's most shocking storylines is a much better presentation.

The brutality that was on display in the comics between Supes and Doomsday is animated perfectly here, so expect to feel every brutal blow thrown by those superpowered rivals. The cameos from other DC heroes and getting to watch Superman at his very best are the main reasons you’ll want to check out this heart-tugger of an animated DC film.

Watch on HBO Max

34. ‘Constantine: City of Demons’ (2018)

Runtime: 1h 30m

Rating: 74% (Rotten Tomatoes Audience Score)

John Constantine is quite a shady and self-serving individual, but he can do a bit of good whenever the situation calls for it. Matt Ryan reprises his live-action role of the beloved anti-hero in animated form here and does it as well as you’d expect. Constantine’s current mission entails finding a cure that will break a young girl out of her supernatural stupor. This film features strong animation and some truly emotional moments that make every one of its characters incredibly endearing.

Watch on HBO Max

35. ‘Wonder Woman’ (2009)

Runtime: 1h 14m

Rating: 83% (Rotten Tomatoes)

So you’d think two films that practically adopt the same origin story for a superhero would be super redundant. But that’s not the case for the animated superhero movies that focus on Wonder Woman’s initial rise to power and superstardom. The 2009 Wonder Woman animated movie paints her in the best light during her clash with a vicious war god. While the storyline should be familiar to anyone who has followed Wonder Woman for an extended period of time, this film still offers a fun romp through her origins as a heroic conduit between the world of man and her fellow Amazons.

Watch on Prime Video

36. ‘Justice Society: World War II’ (2021)

Runtime: 1h 24m

Rating: 81% (Rotten Tomatoes)

Anytime The Flash and the Speed Force come into play, mind-bending events are sure to pass. That’s exactly what happens in this movie when Barry Allen runs right into Earth-2 during the height of World War II. The plot is pretty straightforward, but that simple approach to telling this film’s story works well—watching The Flash and throwback interpretations of DC’s best & brightest work together to beat up some Nazis is certainly a good time.

Watch on HBO Max

37. ‘Superman: Man of Tomorrow’ (2020)

Runtime: 1h 26m

Rating: 100% (Rotten Tomatoes)

Taking place right after the last film on our list, Superman: Man of Tomorrow follows a young Superman during his early days as the chosen savior of Metropolis. This faithful retelling of the Kryptonian hero’s origin story is familiar, yet it still manages to be a satisfying watch due to a welcome change in art style and an overall uplifting vibe. Superman: Man of Tomorrow embraces its source material by relaying his early crime-fighting days in an entertaining manner.

Watch on HBO Max

38. ‘Wonder Woman: Bloodlines’ (2019)

Runtime: 1h 23m

Rating: 88% (Rotten Tomatoes)

It’s pretty criminal that DC’s standout heroine only has two animated superhero movies to her name. Thankfully, both of those animated superhero movies are satisfactory viewing experiences. Just like Wonder Woman (2009), Bloodlines follows the iconic warrior’s origin story as she first encounters Steve Trevor. This initial meeting gives way to Wonder Woman’s epic struggle against Villainy, Inc., which is a collective hellbent on invading her home of Themyscira. Diana’s big battles against her Rogues Gallery and her union with Trevor provide the main basis for this film’s most admirable scenes.

Watch on HBO Max

39. ‘My Hero Academia: Two Heroes’ (2018)

Runtime: 1h 36m

Rating: 100% (Rotten Tomatoes)

We’re gonna do things a bit differently with these next two picks here and show some love to the superhero anime that’s commanded everybody’s attention: My Hero Academia. The very first feature-length film from the smash hit manga/anime sees Class 1-A attend a hero item convention. While their time spent there starts out on a fun note, everything falls apart once a group of villains rears their ugly heads. The students and All Might himself spring into action, which sets up some awe-inspiring action scenes. We even get some revelations about All Might’s past and his most trustworthy sidekick.

Runtime: 1h 44m

Rating: 90% (Rotten Tomatoes)

The second My Hero Academia movie moves Class 1-A to a private island and sees them improving their hero work as they aid its many denizens. The action gets kicked up a notch once a crew of baddies following a villain similar to All for One shows up. Deku and the rest of his fellow young heroes-in-training embark upon a grand struggle against them all and fight to protect a brother-sister duo. The closing moments of this film must be seen to be believed as they embody the visual madness My Hero Academia is known for when it comes to its battle sequences.
