The DC Universe Animated Original Movies (also known as DC Universe Original Movies or DC Universe Movies) are direct-to-video film projects being created by Warner Premiere, Warner Bros. Animation, and DC Comics. These more recent movie projects have also included many of the voice actors who worked on previous DC animated series and films.
Unlike earlier animated DC films (most of which also involved Bruce Timm and were part of the DC animated universe), the films in the line are aimed at a more adult audience, often containing profane language, stronger violence, sexual scenes and more mature themes. The art styles for the films are also generally more realistically proportionate. The majority of the films are rated PG-13 by the MPAA with the exception of All-Star Superman and Green Lantern: Emerald Knights, which are rated PG, and Batman: The Killing Joke, Justice League Dark, Batman: Gotham by Gaslight, Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay and Justice League Dark: Apokolips War, which are rated R. Many of the films are adapted from stories originally featured in DC print comics and graphic novels. Currently, 38 feature films and nine short films have been released, with additional films slated for future releases until 2020. Of the first seventeen films, most of them are set in different continuities to each other, but since Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox most of the films are set in the DC Animated Movie Universe.
