The DC Animated Movie Universe (DCAMU), sometimes referred to as the New 52 Animated Movie Universe[1], is an American media franchise and shared universe centered on a series of superhero films, produced by Warner Bros. Animation and DC Entertainment and distributed by Warner Home Video. The films are part of the DC Universe Animated Original Movies line, based on the comic books published by DC Comics, and feature plot elements inspired by The New 52 continuity.

The shared universe was first teased in the post-credits scene of Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox and was established by crossing over common plot elements, settings, cast, and characters.[2] The first film in the DCAMU was Justice League: War, which was released in 2014; sequels to it, Son of Batman, and Justice League Dark co-exist with this continuity.

As of 2019, thirteen films have been distributed.

Despite the story being previously adapted in the first DC Universe Animated Original Movie (though not in the DCAMU), Superman: Doomsday, this said movie greatly altered and condensed the original comic story to fit it within a 75-minute runtime. The Death of Superman was written to be much more faithful to the original story; according to DC's Tim Beedle, the film is "much less condensed and will include many of the fan-favorite moments from the story that were left out of Doomsday".[15]

He further added that "time will tell" whether the show is part of the Arrowverse.[29] Peter Girardi referred to the show as part of the "Constantine animated universe".[30]

Teen Titans Go! vs. Teen Titans[edit]

The DCAMU versions of Nightwing, Cyborg, Starfire, Beast Boy and Raven appear in Teen Titans Go! vs. Teen Titans, with Sean Maher briefly reprising his role as Nightwing.
