I’m watching Justice League: War
“I’m so confused, are these movies self-contained? I watched Flashpoint Paradox, which was released before War, yesterday and they knew each other.”
Check-in to Justice League: War on tvtag
WB Animation is basically running off and doing their own thing with the characters now. Whereas Under the Red Hood, Year One, Doom, the Green Lantern anime, and essentially most DC anime movies before 2012 were all in the same universe, the newer movies are not.
Flashpoint Paradox is considered the last movie that that shares a universe with all previous Justice League/Batman/Superman/Green Lantern anime movies. But it’s also safe to view it as stand alone.
War, Son of Batman, and all new DC anime are stand alone movies based on the DC Comics “New 52” reboot. I don’t think they are related to each other, but can’t say since War is the only one I saw, and hated it, so don’t plan on seeing any more new DC anime.
But they are definitely not related to Flashpoint or anything before that.
I don’t know much about DC apart from the movies I’ve watched, episodes of Smallville, seasons of Arrow and episodes of Batman of the Future. I have not touched comics. Also anime isn’t the right term here as it is a form of animation rather than an equivalent term for any form of 2D animation.
