The superhero genre has witnessed a surge in popularity this past decade, largely due to the popular live-action Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) films. The MCU is currently the biggest movie franchise globally, with 24 films released since Iron Man in 2008. However, its primary rivals, DC CInematic Extended Universe (DCEU), have been plagued by controversies, despite performing reasonably well in the box office. The first five films of the DCEU have outperformed in terms of revenue when compared to the first five MCU. The controversial reshoots and rewrites, canceled projects, and allegations of workplace harassment by the cast have made the future of the DCEU uncertain. Even though the latest film The Suicide Squad was a success, the fate of the shared universe remains in limbo. But when it comes to animated films and television shows, they are unrivaled and have released several universally acclaimed films and TV shows, and there are several exciting projects announced for future releases. The following is a list of the best DC animated films and television shows available on streaming platforms.
