5 Justice League Animated movies u need to watch before watching the DCEU Justice League

DC and Warner Bros. have created some of the greatest comic book films to date. We know that Justice League movie is going to be released in November. So, let us have a look on some of the Animated movies you need to watch before watching the Justice League.


Justice League: War is an adaptation of the New 52 story, Justice League: Origin. This film introduces us to a new DC animated universe set within the New 52 series.

It is an adaptation of the story Justice League: Origin by Geoff Johns and Jim Lee, the first story in DC's 2011 DC Universe relaunch. It was directed by Jay Oliva. The film depicts an invasion of Earth by the alien Darkseid and the subsequent formation of the superhero team to counter it.

2. JUSTICE LEAGUE: The Flashpoint Paradox (2011)

As an adaptation of the Flashpoint storyline, Flashpoint Paradox does a incredible job in showing the story of Barry Allen, the Flash, and his efforts to reset the timeline after causing a global crisis by going back in time to save his mother in the past.

First of all this is one of the best movies in DCAU where the whole narration was faithful to the storyline. The Flashpoint Paradox succeeds in providing us that immense feeling of joy and cry-worthy sequences, especially the scene where Barry gives Bruce the letter from his father.

Not only The Dark Knight even i Cried while watching that Sequence.

3. JUSTICE LEAGUE: Doom (2012)

Justice League Doom Film, loosely based on JLA: Tower of Babel, a 2000 comic book storyline by writer Mark Waid which ran in the DC Comics series JLA.

The film's script was adapted by writer Dwayne McDuffie, and it is directed by Lauren Montgomery. It is a sequel to Crisis on Two Earths, as the film uses the same character designs.

In this film our heroes fall one after another due to precise attacks carried out by the villainous Legion of Doom, who copied out the contingency plans which are mapped by Batman himself. Doom stood out like a fast-paced thriller, thanks to its tight storytelling, superb voice performances, and crisp animation.


The animated adventure Crisis On Two Earths is an adaptation of the comics Crisis on Earth-Three and JLA: Earth 2. In this movie our Earth-Prime heroes go head-to-head against their evil Earth-3 doppelgangers, The Crime Syndicate. They were aided by the heroic Earth-3 Lex Luthor, the Earth-Prime JLA must combat the evil Syndicate on both worlds.

This film not only provide us a faithful interpretation of the infamous Crime Syndicate, but also gives us a JLA who are well-established and coordinated. Though none of the major voice actors associated with the DC/WB animated universe lent their voice here, the film is still a great entry into their animated library of films.

5. JUSTICE LEAGUE: Dark (2017)

Released in 2017 Justice League: Dark is the twenty-seventh film in the DC Universe Animated Original Movies series. It is a briskly paced, dark magic adventure that gives some of DC's most shadowy heroes a chance to shine in a story. It includes a team of supernatural beings like John Constantine, Zatanna and Swamp Thing join forces against a supernatural foe.

Batman forms Justice League Dark, a new team of dark arts specialists that is led by John Constantine. The team must unravel the mystery of a supernatural outbreak and fight with the rising, powerful villainous forces who were behind the blockade.

Obviously there are many other great DC animated films, but this list is purely according to my watchlist, I may have left off one or two of your favorites. Comment me ur favourite one too
