The DC Universe Animated Original Movies are direct-to-video film projects being created by Warner Premiere, Warner Bros. Animation, and DC Comics with the help of producers such as Bruce Timm. These more recent movie projects have also included many of the voice actors who worked on previous DC animated series and films.

Premise

Unlike earlier animated DC films (most of which also involved Bruce Timm and were part of the DC animated universe), the films in the line are aimed at a more adult audience, often containing profane language, stronger violence and more mature themes. The films are all rated PG-13 with the exception of All-Star Superman and Green Lantern: Emerald Knights, which are rated PG; while Batman: The Killing Joke is the first in the canon to be rated R. Many of the films are adapted from stories originally featured in DC print comics and graphic novels. Currently, 26 feature films and five short films have been released, with additional films slated for future releases until 2020. Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths and Batman: The Killing Joke had limited releases in theaters and the rest were direct-to-video.

Most of the films were voice directed by Andrea Romano while a few films were voice directed by Wes Gleason.
