Marvel might currently be dominating the box office, but when it comes to animated films, DC definitely has the upper hand. Ever since Batman: The Animated Series came along and changed the game, DC have consistently put out excellent animated content adapted from their most popular comics. We've got wind that the next DC animated film in the works is a two-parter: The Death of Superman and The Reign of Superman, and knowing that DC is going to try to expand on their previous adaptation (the not-so critically acclaimed Superman Doomsday), we’ve decided to count down the 10 Best DC Animated Films!
There’s been a lot of good ones and it was tough to dwindle ‘em down, but here they are!
