The Avengers films and upcoming Captain America: Civil War movie allow Marvel fans to see some of their favorite characters together on the big screen, and now, DC fans will finally get the chance to experience the same thing with the Friday release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Whether you're heading to theaters to see who will win when the Dark Knight and Man of Steel go against each other, or just to check out Wonder Woman, the important thing is that you will watch it over the weekend, because there is no escaping the fact the entire Internet will be talking about it for days.

So, what better way to prepare for the film than by streaming as much DC content as possible? This includes some of our favorite Batman movies, as well as other series like The Flash and Arrow that we've been hooked on.

Here are the DC Comics movies and TV series available on Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Video worth streaming before the March 25 premiere of Batman v Superman.
