Best Batman Animated Movies


The Top Ten

1 Batman: The Killing Joke

I love this movie so much. THIS DESERVES TO BE NUMBER 1! Because It has a better story, better adaption of the comic, better animation, and better cast. Who can forget about Conroy and Hamill's performance on Batman and Joker since 1992? - asantalo

This movie isn't even out yet! (Oh, and I didn't mean to dislike the other guy's comment, my bad buddy.)

I just saw it. And it was amazing. Yes! This deserves to be number one.

I'm sorry, but I didn't like this film. It was depressing, uncomfortable, and it took too long for the Joker to show up. - girlcool

2 Batman: Mask of the Phantasm

The only animated Batman film to see release in theaters, this film presented to us an introduction to the Batman and Joker we know today. Not only did it boast great animation, stellar voice acting (who can forget Mark Hamill's iconic Joker laugh?! ), but it gave us above all one of the best Batman stories to date. That and it spawned the incredible animated series. This is my favorite animated Batman movie!

Without doubt the most romantic and dark family friendly BATMAN animated feature a real treasure every one should have this in their essential movie collection

I think this is better than Under the Red Hood. Mark Hamill? I mean come on! This movie is so unforgettable. Put this on number 2. - asantalo

I truly adore this magnificent gem
It’s colourful excellent experience
A narrative with heart n soul

3 Batman: Under the Red Hood

Really good film. Fantastic plot, very interesting characters, great voice acting, and awesome animation. Also Black Mask finally got a role in Batman film which is a entertaining treat. - girlcool

This movie makes me feel depressed but I love it! - JasonTodd

This is such a good film and ten times better than killing joke

Such a powerful film. But the fact that it’s not even a Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill movie just didn’t do well for me. Not saying much, this film is great. Based off the Death in the Family novel. It’s great. Jensen Ackles just saved this movie for me. That’s awesome. - asantalo

4 Batman: The Dark Knight Returns

This great adaptation of the frank miller classic portrays the great story and its art style matches the tone of the comic perfectly.

Just finished watching it. Was great! - Alpha101

I saw parts 1 and 2. Brilliant adaptation, but Batman looks fat. I know this is based off of Frank Miller’s classic story, but still. I mean Batman sure is grumpy too, but just too fat. I think this is where the Ben Affleck’s Batman came from, but except that his was a little thinner. I mean even though he’s fat, the story is so interesting. Go watch it. And yes, I consider this the 4th best Batman Animated Film. That’s only my opinion. - asantalo

5 Batman: Bad Blood

Honestly, this is hands down...the best of the Damian Wayne Trilogy. I suggest you go and see it for yourselves. - asantalo

The best of the Damian Wayne trilogy.

6 Justice League vs. Teen Titans

I love those teens together! Raven is cute and so is Starfire! - DynastiNoble

This is one is the best! Or maybe when the Killing Joke will be released

I did enjoy it. But to be honest, I would like to see more about Damian Wayne’s story and being helpful for the Teen Titians. This feels like the best Teen Titians Story ever made. My favorite part is where Damian fought his own granddaddy (aka Ra’s Al Ghul) in hell. Brilliant! - asantalo

7 Batman vs. Robin
8 Batman: Assault On Arkham

If only the suicide squad movie was as good as this animation

Suicide squad :D

It was alright. But the romanticship between Deadshot and Harley Quinn just made it look bad. Not a good relationship, and it doesn’t save the movie at all. But hey it’s not that bad. Still. At least Conroy’s Batman saved the film. And Troy Baker did well. That’s really about it. - asantalo

9 Batman Beyond - Return of the Joker

Not just a great animated film, but a great film! Great twists and turns, great action, well paced and I love how it connected Batman and Batman Beyond. I show this movie to a lot of people.

This is the Batman Animated Film that should’ve also been in theaters. I love the story and the animation a lot! This is amazing! - asantalo

10 Son of Batman

Understated gem of the masterpiece nobody realises at the time under the rader makes this an unexpected delight

This film is not bad. I think this is defiantly better than Batman vs. Robin. - asantalo

I actually like this film. It was cool. - girlcool

The Contenders

11 Justice League: Doom

Good mix of dark tones and light tones. Isn't too scary or too corny.

12 Batman: Year One

So underrated? Ought to be no. 1

13 Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders

A lot of fun. Adam West was awesome and the villains were really funny. Plus the Bat-Dance is a delight. - girlcool

Incredible graphics

14 Batman Ninja
15 Batman: Gotham by Gaslight
16 The Batman vs Dracula

This film was good. The show it's based on is underrated. - girlcool

I didn’t like any of the art concept of the Characters and especially the Villains. Joker looks like an Ape - asantalo

17 Batman vs. Two-Face

This film should be much higher. It's amazing. I love Adam West as Batman. He was the best. - girlcool

Even though I haven’t seen this one or Return of the Caped Crusaders, I do admit that it brings back the 1960s silliness. I mean that’s cool. And even though Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill are my favorite Batman and Joker, I’m surprised that they bring back Adam West to do Batman again. I’m so sad that this is his last movie to be Batman before he died. We will miss you Adam West. - asantalo

18 The Lego Batman Movie

My least favorite Batman film. - girlcool

Haven’t seen it yet, but it looks too silly. I missed Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill already. - asantalo

19 Batman & Mr. Freeze: Subzero

I'm surprised that this film wasn't already on the list. It was good. - girlcool

This one is bad. - asantalo

20 Batman: Gotham Knight

Amazing looking animation. - girlcool

Batman The Anime Series

Awful animation - asantalo

21 Lego Batman: The Movie

This is just a movie from every cutscenes from the actual game. So, it’s not fun to watch. - asantalo

22 The Lego Movie
23 Batman: Mystery of the Batwoman

Underrated and good film. - girlcool

No never good. It’s terrible! - asantalo

24 Batman & Harley Quinn

This film was funny. - girlcool

This one is bad. I think I take it back. I thought this one is the worst of the DC animated films - asantalo
