or, part of the "The New Batman Adventures", which is basically just the name for one of the seasons in Batman: The animated series.

Director: Curt Geda | Stars: Will Friedle, Mark Hamill, Kevin Conroy, Angie Harmon

Votes: 20,270

Tie in film to the Batman Beyond series, which is itself a follow up and linked to Batman: The animated series. So essentially, it's part of the Batman: The animated series tie in films.

14. Batman: The Killing Joke (2016)

R | 76 min | Animation, Action, Crime

As Batman hunts for the escaped Joker, the Clown Prince of Crime attacks the Gordon family to prove a diabolical point mirroring his own fall into madness.

Director: Sam Liu | Stars: Kevin Conroy, Mark Hamill, Tara Strong, Ray Wise

Votes: 41,260 | Gross: $3.78M

While not formally connected to any other film series, but only to the, controversial, story from the comic of the same name. But as it features Mark Hamill as the Joker, I've put it together with the Batman: The animated series films and it's follow-ups as Mark Hamill also portrayed the Joker in them.

In in-story progression, this would be before Batman Beyond, but since it's connection to the universe is looser and debatable, unlike Batman Beyond, I place it here.

15. Batman and Harley Quinn (2017)

PG-13 | 74 min | Animation, Action, Adventure

Batman and Nightwing are forced to team with the Joker's sometimes-girlfriend Harley Quinn to stop a global threat brought about by Poison Ivy and Jason Woodrue, the Floronic Man.

Director: Sam Liu | Stars: Kevin Conroy, Melissa Rauch, Paget Brewster, Loren Lester

Votes: 8,345

Partly a joke, it does seem to follow more or less from the Batman: The Animated Series with satirical references to several other Batman series, including the original live-actors TV series.

In in-story progression, this would be before Batman Beyond, but since it's connection to the universe is looser and debatable, unlike Batman Beyond, I place it here.

16. The Batman vs. Dracula (2005 Video)

Unrated | 83 min | Animation, Action, Horror

Batman faces off against the original creature of the night, Count Dracula, who has been unintentionally resurrected by the Penguin.

Directors: Michael Goguen, Seung Eun Kim, Sam Liu, Brandon Vietti | Stars: Rino Romano, Peter Stormare, Tara Strong, Tom Kenny

A one of tie in to "The Batman" series.

Director: Ethan Spaulding | Stars: Jason O'Mara, Stuart Allan, Thomas Gibson, Morena Baccarin

Votes: 19,280

The animation style and especially Nightwing is very similar to "Under the Red Hood" so it might be seen as following the same series, although it is never made clear and the actors are not the same.

20. Batman vs. Robin (2015 Video)

PG-13 | 80 min | Animation, Action, Adventure

While Damian Wayne struggles to cope with Batman's no-killing rule, he soon starts to believe that his destiny lies within a secret society known as, The Court of Owls.

Director: Jay Oliva | Stars: Stuart Allan, Troy Baker, Kevin Conroy, Trevor Devall

Votes: 15,346

Continues the story of "Son of Batman" (more or less).

Director: Sam Liu | Stars: Rosario Dawson, Christopher Gorham, Shemar Moore, Jerry O'Connell

Votes: 13,784

I put it after "Bad Blood" since Damian Wayne is a character.

But from here on, it seems to actually connect the "Damian Wayne series" and the Justice League series since "War". Characters are drawn similar and small parts of the stories seems to align. Although the connection is still weak.

23. Superman/Batman: Public Enemies (2009 Video)

PG-13 | 67 min | Animation, Action, Drama

Director: Giancarlo Volpe | Stars: Diedrich Bader, Laura Bailey, Dante Basco, Corey Burton

Votes: 3,129

Justice League film series. Although it could be debated how much it ties in with the other Justice League films, but since there are no other "Justice League Adventures" films, I tie it in here. Also, it could be debated how much the other Justice League films are connected in the first place!

33. Justice League: War (2014 Video)

PG-13 | 79 min | Animation, Action, Adventure

The world's finest heroes found the Justice League in order to stop an alien invasion of Earth.

Director: Jay Oliva | Stars: Sean Astin, Zach Callison, Christopher Gorham, Justin Kirk

Votes: 25,164

Justice League film series. From here on the Justice League films can be seen to clearly follow each other, at times literally back-to-back in story progression. In this perspective, "War" can also be seen as possible a reboot and therefore as the first in the series, with no connection to the earlier Justice League films. It can also be argued that is connects, at first loosely, later more directly, with the "Son of Batman" series.

34. Justice League: Throne of Atlantis (2015 Video)

PG-13 | 72 min | Animation, Action, Adventure

When Atlantian troops assault Metropolis as revenge for the death of their king, the Queen seeks help from the Justice League to find her son who has gone missing during the madness.

Directors: Phil Lord, Christopher Miller | Stars: Chris Pratt, Will Ferrell, Elizabeth Banks, Will Arnett

Votes: 292,181 | Gross: $257.76M

Lego Batman series. Although it isn't that closely related to the other Lego Batman films, I presume they are connected simply by being part of the lego universe. And the Batman character is very similar.

Second film in the "DC Extended Universe" film series, which started with "Man of Steel".

Upcoming but seriously delayed. Personally, I'm not sure if it will ever be finished, its a 50/50. - (UPDATED) Seems that they finally succeeded in securing it for release. So it will definitely come out (it came out).
