There have been a lot of blockbuster live-action Batman movies over the years, and many of them are totally rad. However, my favorite stories of the World's Greatest Detective are animated. Since the incredible Batman: the Animated Series from the early '90s (a must-see), DC has pumped out lush, funny, dark, and exciting animated movies and TV shows that – in my opinion – have made even the MCU look stale. Though the best starting point for any beginner is definitely the animated series, I put together a list of my personal favorite animated films of the Caped Crusader.
10.Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Parts 1 & 2 (2012)
9.Batman: Year One (2011)
8.Batman: Assault on Arkham (2014)
7.Batman & Mr. Freeze: Subzero (1998)
6.Batman: Hush (2019)
5.Batman: Soul of the Dragon (2021)
4.Batman: Under the Red Hood (2010)
3.The Lego Batman Movie (2017)
2.Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker (2000)
