DC Universe Animated Original Movies are feature length direct-to-DVD animated movies. They did not form a single continuity, but are stand-alone movies mostly. Starting with Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox, however, many of them form a single continuity, which seemingly ended with Justice League Dark: Apokolips War. They are not directly connected to other movies and animated series, with Batman: Gotham Knight intended to be part of the Nolanverse and Batman: Assault on Arkham is part of the Arkhamverse.



DC Showcase is a series of short-films focusing on DC characters who normally are unable to have a feature unto themselves. They are released as a co-feature with the main DC Universe Animated Original Movies. The first exception is Superman/Shazam!: The Return of Black Adam, which was released as part of a DC Showcase anthology DVD with the first three shorts.

In May of 2019 Warner Bros. Home Entertainment and Warner Bros. Animation announced a new series of DC Showcase animated shorts. These shorts have been released in accompaniment with DC Universe Animated Original Movies with the exception of Batman: Death in the Family which anchors the collection DC Showcase Animated Shorts - Batman: Death in the Family released on October 13, 2020.
