I have never seen any DC films, tv shows, read any comics or anything. I honestly know nothing. I was wondering if there is an order for ALL the films, tv shows, spin-offs and animated media like there is for Marvel like the one here?

    DC animations, TV series, and films all exist in different continuities - they aren't in the same universe, basically. Dec 16, 2016 at 22:03

    That graphic only covers a tiny portion of Marvel's TV and film output, basically the last ten years. It ignores the hundreds of hours of film and TV that went before and the thousands of comics and novels that preceded that.

  • @KutuluMike - it's not that bad now that I've edited it. Also, the most recent reboots aren't that old yet. If OP limits the question to most recent releases, I think the question would be ok. Dec 16, 2016 at 22:46

The graphic you linked to covers a tiny, tiny fraction of the Marvel universe; it only tells you what order to watch the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies. It doesn't cover any of the comic books, any of the dozens of animated shows, any of the X-Men, Fantastic Four, or Spider-Man movies (before 2016), or any live-action show before about 2010.

The equivalent graphic for DC would be very, very short. It would consist of exactly three movies:

  • Man of Steel
  • Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice
  • Suicide Squad

If we included upcoming movies that haven't been released yet, you could include:

  • Wonder Woman (the movie)
  • Justice League: Part 1

There really is no order to watch "all DC properties" because they all cover vastly different times. There are a good half-dozen distinct comic book timelines that overlap, cross over, or reboot each other; there's an entire set of TV shows on the CW that exist all by themselves; the Gotham show is separate from that; and there's more than one animated universe. And there's a ton of movies that exist outside the DC Extended Universe.
