This is the timeline for the DC Animated Movie Universe, a series of straight to DVD films set in a universe inspired by DC's New 52 storylines.

The Justice League films are listed in bold black text, while the Superman films are listed in bold red text, the Batman films are listed in bold gray text, the Teen Titans films listed in bold orange text, and the Suicide Squad film listed in bold purple text.

The Nightwing and Robin short is listed in regular gray text.

The Constantine - City of Demons animated web series is listed in regular black text, to denote it's a direct spin-off of Justice League Dark. There is reportedly going to be an extended version released to DVD with additional footage that will take the place of the webisodes on the timeline once released.

The Suicide Squad - Hell to Pay sequel comics are listed in bold and italicized purple text.

A simplified viewing/reading order is presented first, followed by the detailed timeline.

Placement reasonings:

First, many of the flashback dates are assumed based on character age/appearance in modern day and flashback portions, so are mere estimates, as very few firm time spans are given in the series so far.

Justice League - The Flashpoint Paradox is considered Year 0 of the rebooted timeline (as a result of Flashpoint). A calendar on the wall in the Flashpoint timeline indicates its November, while at the end when Barry returns to the corrected timeline the calendar reads October, indicating he likely returned a month earlier than he left (but that doesn't matter since they're two separate timelines). Since much of JL - The Flashpoint Paradox occurs in different timelines outside of the new timeline its events create (which this animated universe sprung from), those alternate timelines are noted in brackets. Since there is an element of time travel also involved, those portions are listed between ** to denote the time travel.

Justice League - War occurs an indeterminate time later, but since The Flashpoint Paradox's post credit scene showed the parademons coming to Earth, it's likely JL - War doesn't occur too long after, maybe a matter of weeks or months at most, either way putting those events at least into Year 1.

Son of Batman picks up an indeterminate time later, but I believe Damien is 10 years old in this film, which gives a baseline to his appearances later and overall passage of time, despite his age not being explicitly referenced.

Justice League - Throne of Atlantis likely occurs not too long after events of JL - War, due to Orm's plan coming to fruition. He vowed revenge in JL - War's post credit scene, and sets it in motion in JL - Throne of Atlantis, likely indicating only a matter of months have passed. The JL are still a new team in the film.

Nightwing and Robin occurs during the early portion of JL - Throne of Atlantis (about 18 minutes into the film).

Batman vs. Robin picks up awhile after Son of Batman, as Batman mentions "all these months" in regard to how long Damian has been with him, indicating a year hasn't passed yet but it's been some time, likely 6-10 months or so, putting us into Year 2.

Batman - Bad Blood picks up about six months after Batman vs Robin.

Justice League vs Teen Titans picks up an indeterminate time after Bad Blood. Likely not long after, as Batman and Nightwing are still trying to help with Damian's social and team work skills by having him join the Titans.

Teen Titans - The Judas Contract picks up around a year after JL vs TT, as Terra has been with the Titans for a year and she was shown heading toward Titans Tower in JL vs TT's post credit scene, indicating around a year passed between the films.

Suicide Squad - Hell to Pay picks up an indeterminate amount of time after, but it MUST occur BEFORE Justice League Dark due to its sequel spin off comic (which picks up very soon after the film).

Suicide Squad - Hell to Pay's sequel comic series features an appearance by Jason Blood, who Waller goes to for answers about the Get Out of Hell card. Since Jason Blood is separated from Etrigan and dies at end of JL Dark, SS - Hell to Pay and the sequel comic must occur before the events of JL Dark.

JL Dark occurs an indeterminate amount of time after the previous films, but does show the League has expanded and continues to expand its roster, indicating it's at least a couple years since the League formed in JL - War.

Constantine - City of Demons dates itself as occurring in late October, 2018 based on a newspaper date. How that corresponds to Justice League Dark or the other films is unknown, but as with most of the placements on the timeline its assumed.

Placements for the upcoming The Death of Superman and Reign of the Supermen films are tentative until the films are released.
