DC Movies List in Order – The Right Way to Watch

DC Movies List in Order – The Right Way to Watch – Whether it is Wonder Woman 1984, Zac Snyder’s version of the Justice League, or the upcoming Robert Pattinson-directed film The Batman, there are plenty of reasons to be excited about the future of the DC Extended Universe.

 

Despite decades of films, the “official” DCEU technically did not begin until 2013, with the Superman reboot, Man of Steel. However, another DC project in the works could reunite some older DC films for the DCEU. Rumors suggest that Michael Keaton, who played Batman in both 1989’s Batman and 1991’s Batman Returns, will return as the Dark Knight through a single Flash film to be released in 2022.

 

The most interesting part of this rumor is that Ben Affleck, or Batfleck, may return for this very film as Batman, as Flash can bend time and space, possibly uniting Batman across multiple universes. It is complicated, but it opens the door to connect all DC movies.

 

All this makes us wonder: If you want to watch all DC movies in chronological order, how will you go about it? We got into thinking and came up with a definite sequence of 33 films for each film of DC characters. Since we did this chronologically, or when each film is set, we are moving forward with Wonder Woman, which was released in 2017 but is set during WWI.

Wonder-Woman-2017

She rescues American pilot Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) and, after interrogating her, learns from a German scientist how to make a more lethal version of mustard gas.

Superman and the Mole Men (1951)

The first official superhero film of DC characters stars George Reeves as the Man of Steel.

Batman-The-Movie-1966

Joker (2019)

Joker-2019

We know that Joker of 2019 is not officially part of the ongoing DCEU cinematic universe, it is a standalone film.

Also, with DC planning to reintroduce older characters like Michael Keaton’s Batman into DCEU, we can see Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker repeating in the future.

Wes Craven, who immediately created Nightmare on Elm Street, directed the swamp.

 

Superman III (1983)

Superman III signals an early decline in quality from the first two Superman films, perhaps because a new director, Richard Lester, was brought in. In his performance Christopher Reeves returns as Clark Kent, returning to his hometown of Smallville, Kansas. Meanwhile, Webscoe CEO Ross Webster (Robert Vaughan) helps hire a talented but clumsy computer programmer (Richard Prior) to destroy his rivals and kill Superman.

Supergirl is a forgotten spin-off of Christopher Reeves’ Superman films. It was a box office and critical disappointment, but it gives a glimpse into the future of interconnected universes in superhero films. Supergirl Kara follows Zor-El, a Kryptonian refugee living in Argo City and accidentally loses a device that powers the entire city. But we see Kara chasing her down to Earth in hopes of getting her back.
