: Grixit, I removed your entry
- In one episode of Diagnosis: Murder, Dick Van Dyke as Doctor Sloane is walking through the corridors of the hospital. As he turns a corner, he passes an internal window through which we see, not a medical procedure in progress, but a broadcast booth in black and white. It's a clip from his mostly forgotten show Good Morning World. He walks on without seeming to notice.
because that's not a continuity nod — that's The Alkazar
grixit: ok, i'll put it there.
Uriel-238: The following is in error, which I corrected (assuming I recall the movie correctly).
- Film examples from the Batman franchise: In Batman Forever, Bruce Wayne comments to Alfred on Dick Grayson's stealing one of his motorcycles, saying "He's probably halfway to Metropolis by now"; while in Batman and Robin, Batman says during an argument with Robin, "This is why Superman works alone." In return, Superman Returns mentions Gotham in a news report.
: I think
all the examples of Superman films and series casting actors from previous versions, and Michael Rosenbaum voicing Lex in Justice League, are actually Mythology Gags
, aren't they?
: I'd say yes.
: Finally remembered about that and moved them all. (They'd grown since I first noticed this). Also moved the Honor Blackman gag in The Avengers
to The Alkazar
: I added that quote at the top, everyone okay with it?
: Cut the following, as it's actually a Mythology Gag
- The Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy movie included the Marvin from the TV series as somebody standing in a queue when the men try to rescue Trillian from the Vogons. And the hologram who gives the warning at Magrathea is played by the series-Arthur Dent.
Also, the examples in Kyoto Animations seem to be more Shout Outs
than Continuity Nods
: unless there's signs they're definitely in the same world. I've only seen one of them, so I couldn't really say.
: Removed all of this because it is again, Mythology Gag
- Smallville must do this every time another DC Universe hero makes a showing. The subtle part is the day to day wear of all the Super heroes referencing their Costumes in standard continuity. Bart (Flash) has a Red Hoodie, a red backpack, and lightningbolts on his belt Buckle, backpack, and shoes. Aquaman wears a pair of green swimtrunks and an orange shirt. Cyborg wears all white/silver colors. Even Clark Kent is wearing a Red jacket and blue shirt (and Bizarro Clark wearing a blue jacket and red shirt). More direct nods include:
- Flash has a collection of fake IDs, including the names of other incarnations of Flash. He also suggests they start a club or a league at the end of his first appearance.
- Aquaman suggests that Clark join the Junior Lifeguards of America, Clark's responce is "I don't think I'm ready to join the JLA just yet."
, this page needed some cleaning. In addition to all the mythology gags that crept back in? Fire Emblem was in western animation somehow. Also, a bit of natter under Serenity; may or may not merit inclusion. I opted for not, obviously.
- The much larger scar he should have had in the center of his chest from the torture device in "War Stories" is conspicuously absent, though.
- To be fair, that was some kind of weird futuretech torture device, and it looked like most of the damage was internal, not external.
