Superman (1978)/Batman (1989) - Timeline

This is the timeline for the Superman and Batman film series. Note that they were typically considered separate continuities, but DC recently confirmed that Batman '89 and Superman '78 share the same universe.

Earth-97 was originally a joke with no real canon implication in Crisis Aftermath, which actually stated that the Schumacher films were part of Earth-89. The Batman '89 writer jokingly acknowledged it which lead to a lot of confusion. In truth, it depends on whether The Flash contradicts the Schumacher films.

Earth-89 - Burtonverse
Timeline Reasoning
Oswald Cobblepot was born 33 years before Batman Returns.

The newspaper about the Wayne's murder in Batman is dated Thursday October 19. It is assumed to have occurred concurrently with Earth-89's version of events.

The wake of Thomas Wayne and Martha Wayne as shown in Batman Forever is between 1-2 weeks after their death.

Bruce Wayne and Alfred look the same age between flashbacks in Batman & Robin and Batman Forever.

Batman has several contradictory dates, but in my opinion November 25 is the most prominent and clear date, plus the day of the week on the other newspapers are inaccurate whereas here it is obscured. It's placed in 1989 based on Jack Napier's criminal record.

Batman Returns takes place in late December.

Batman Forever is set in October, and the dates are worked back from Halloween. It's placed in 1995 based on release year.

Batman & Robin is set an indeterminate amount of time after Batman Forever. It's placed in 1997 based on release year.


Catwoman 80th Anniversary, "Now You See Me" is set an indeterminate amount of time after Batman Returns. It is placed based on technology and ages of characters.

Catwoman is set an indeterminate amount of time after Batman Returns based on Selina Kyle being an existing Catwoman. It's placed in its year of release.

Timeline Reasoning
Lex Luthor states that, according to Lois' interview with Superman, Krypton exploded in 1948. This is contradicted by Jor-El, who states that he's been dead for many thousands of Earth years. Because Krypton has information on the Nazi Party and Einstein's theory of relativity, Jor-El is incorrect.

Superman lands on Earth in 1951, as Clark said his spaceship landed on Earth 3 years after Krypton exploded.

Teenage Clark is 18, as Jor-El explained. This scene takes place in 1965 based on Superman III's "class of '65" date.


12 years later according to Jor-El, Clark, now 30, emerges as Superman in 1977. It is taken that Superman: The Movie: Extended Cut is the canonical version, as that's the longest version available with the most information.

Superman II is placed two years later because of it being released that amount of time afterwards. It is conjecture.

In Superman III, the date 19/3/83 is given. Lois took a 2 week vacation, which matches perfectly between March 19th and April 2nd. It appears to be Clark's 15 year class reunion, as he says to Perry that he can write an article about how much a small town can change in 15 years. Thus, this film would take place in 1980.

Superman IV: The Quest for Peace has a August 29th, 1985 newspaper.

Earth-789 - Donner/Burton-Verse [Comic Multiverse]
Timeline Reasoning
Lex Luthor states that, according to Lois' interview with Superman, Krypton exploded in 1948. This is contradicted by Jor-El, who states that he's been dead for many thousands of Earth years. Because Krypton has information on the Nazi Party and Einstein's theory of relativity, Jor-El is incorrect.

Superman lands on Earth in 1951, as Clark said his spaceship landed on Earth 3 years after Krypton exploded.


Oswald Cobblepot was born 33 years before Batman Returns, so 1959.

Teenage Clark is 18, as Jor-El explained. This scene takes place in 1965 based on Superman III's "class of '65" date.

The newspaper about the Wayne's murder in Batman is dated Thursday October 19. It is taken to be 1972 based on Earth-89 in the live-action multiverse.


12 years later according to Jor-El, Clark, now 30, emerges as Superman in 1977. It is taken that Superman: The Movie: Extended Cut is the canonical version, as that's the longest version available with the most information.

Superman II is placed two years later because of it being released that amount of time afterwards. It is conjecture.

In Superman III, the date 19/3/83 is given. Lois took a 2 week vacation, which matches perfectly between March 19th and April 2nd. It appears to be Clark's 15 year class reunion, as he says to Perry that he can write an article about how much a small town can change in 15 years. Thus, this film would take place in 1980.

Superman IV: The Quest for Peace has a August 29th, 1985 newspaper.


Superman '78 is placed in 1989 due to Bruce Wayne returning to Gotham recently in the story, and him being said to be terrorising Gotham as "Bat-Man" in the news, which indicates that he is very early in his career and this is before the events of Batman.

Batman has several contradictory dates, but in my opinion November 25 is the most prominent and clear date, plus the day of the week on the other newspapers are inaccurate whereas here it is obscured. It's placed in 1989 based on Jack Napier's criminal record.

Batman Returns takes place in late December. It is placed in its year of release, 1992.


Batman '89 is dated based on October 31st in #1. It takes place in 1993 due to being set a year after Batman Returns. A newspaper refers to UFOs in Metropolis being spotted, but it is revealed to be a dream sequence.

Dark Crisis: Big Bang designates this universe as Earth-789 in the comic book numbering, also revealing that Batman '89 and Superman '78 are the same continuity. Batman is seen alongside the Joker as Barry runs through Earth-789. According to Marc Guggenheim, Jack Napier is alive in Earth-89, so it seems that this also applies on Earth-789.

I'm watching '89, and a Newspaper at the start has the date November 25, then another November 14, then November 7 in that order.

Based on this, I'm going with:
November 25 is correct
November 14 is incorrect
November 6 is incorrect, but is taken as December 6 because of a short time jump since Joker unleashed his laughing "product"

Is this fair?

Which one is this one? Was this in the movie?

Chapter 6: November 25
Chapter 20: November 14
Chapter 24: November 7

I haven't seen that one.

I have noticed how much the film wants to be 1947, however.

This film is all kinds of contradictory. It does seem to be mostly consistently set in November, at least.

Edit:
Chapter 11: Batman foils Robbery

No close up on the newspaper, so I think that one can be discarded.

Chapter 14: WFTGG

This one is more clear, but it's just not as concrete as the other more clear dates.

So:
Chapter 6: November 25
Chapter 11: October 18
Chapter 14: November 11
Chapter 20: November 14
Chapter 24: November 7

Definitely November.

So it will basically be like superman returns where superman 3 and 4 were not mentioned.
Possibly. For the purpose of this timeline, I'm gonna include it all until that is fully 100% clear and The Flash is incompatible with those films.

It's confirmed the Schumacher films are in Earth-89, per Crisis aftermath and a review about Catwoman on the official DC YouTube channel, and it's confirmed they're disregarding them according to TheWrap. I'm assuming that The Flash will have Keaton come from Earth-89.

I can think of a couple explanations.
1. Batman Forever and Batman & Robin are retroactively a different Earth, say Earth-95, where Batman and Batman Returns happened but The Flash didn't.

2. Batman Forever and Batman & Robin still happened but are ignored for the sake of them being unpopular. (My hope)

3. Keaton comes from a different universe (imagine Earth-96, would be awesome) where the Schumacher films didn't happen.

4. In the new multiverse after Crisis, Earth-89 diverged after 1992 into the reality that is shown in The Flash, even though they hinted that the universes are restored to their original history (I assume Oliver felt sorry for Clark in Earth-96).

I'm holding out till 2022. It's a long time, anything could happen. I've seen possibly completely false reports that it's just a cameo, and if that's the case, it's basically the same Batman. If he has a substantial role, it depends. I guess the only thing that could really separate them is if he says that Two-Face is still around dispite his death in Batman Forever, though I suppose if Joker is alive anyone could be.

On a smaller note, if Superman Returns didn't contradict Superman III, I'd include them as the same continuity, especially because of the Superman III reference in Crisis, but they can't be because Martha Kent died in Superman III.

The second story is clearly the Burtonverse. Catwoman wears the same suit. The wiki seems to agree, too.

However, Penguin appears on a computer screen alive. Should it be assumed the story is somehow during Batman Returns, dispite the fact that Penguin looks majorly different to Danny Devito, or that Penguin was resurrected/had a successor, like Joker? I'm more leaning to the successor idea. Seems more likely. I mean... just look at him.

Hell, maybe this is canon now, haha.
I always thought of it more as a Birds of Prey prequel, the actor and suit matching that continuity, but let's take a look at it with the new information.

Pros
Batsuit
Batmobile
'89 theme
Alfred Pennyworth

Cons
Joker (retroactively alive/replaced)
Penguin (retroactively alive/replaced)
Riddler without brain injury

The only error that now exists is Riddler, but I suppose he could have recovered eventually. He gave me very Jim Carrey vibes in that scene.

Vicki Vale and James Gordon also appear. Recast aren't a problem and we only heard James Gordon's voice. I guess Bruce and Vicki got back together.

Birds of Prey resembles the Burtonverse, but more or less the same way Titans looks like the DCEU - but they're not connected.

Side note: but Lois & Clark (the 90s TV series) did have the Burtonverse Batmobile in one episode. If anything, Birds of Prey and Lois & Clark are their own little shared universe. Probably not, but the Burtonverse still doesn't fit with those two shows. :p

Side note: but Lois & Clark (the 90s TV series) did have the Burtonverse Batmobile in one episode. If anything, Birds of Prey and Lois & Clark are their own little shared universe. Probably not, but the Burtonverse still doesn't fit with those two shows. :p
I was suggesting that OnStar could be in the Burtonverse now that we know canonically a new version of Penguin exists, but I used to pretend that it was in the Birds of Prey continuity, since the actor and suit match.

Essentially, I always took OnStar as a silly non-canon advertisement, but seeing how both Joker and penguin exist (see above image) after their deaths, and the various connections to the Burtonverse, I guess OnStar is canon now.

How does Lois & Clark contradict the Burtonverse? I'm pretty sure the only thing we know about that version of Batman is that he had the same Batmobile from the first two Batman films, and it was stolen.

I suppose you could argue that the original Burtonverse Batmobile was destroyed, though if you take OnStar as canon, which seems to be supported by Catwoman 80th Anniversary, "Now You See Me", which features the Michelle Pfeiffer Catwoman and a tv screen with not Danny DeVito's Penguin, then Batman recreated that version of the Batmobile. Perhaps he got sick of the disco ball and felt he needed a retro touch.

I watched the clip from Lois & Clark with the Batmobile. A very similar theme to the '89 theme plays, or a least I think it did. They state that they're "batty" about having it, it being a one of a kind car.

I don't particularly want to add it, but it makes sense. Batman has his car stolen, and ends up with a new one in Batman Forever. Batman Forever references Metropolis, and Batman & Robin references Superman, with Metropolis being referenced in a deleted scene.

Having the '89 Batmobile doesn't technically mean it's in this universe, though. Earth-99's Batman, played by Kevin Conroy in Crisis on Infinite Earths, had the '89 Batmobile too.

I'd guess Batman '89 takes place in 1993, maybe but not definitely retconing the Schumacher films into pre-crisis ready for The Flash, and Superman '78 takes place between 2015-2019, or perhaps even post-crisis.

Maybe they'll even confirm that the Superman film series takes place in the 1970s and 1980s as originally intended.

Or maybe Christopher Reeve is post-crisis and Superman Returns is Pre-Crisis.
