** The ''Worlds Collide'' crossover, where the characters of DC Comics met the characters of MilestoneComics, had this since Marvel and DC were both fictional universes within the Milestone Universe. ComicBook/{{Icon}} expressed concern that he might not be strong enough to battle Superman, whom he remembered from the original Christopher Reeve ''Film/{{Superman}}'' film.

** In ''{{Ultimatum}}'', Peter's buddy Kong suggests that he and his friends go see ''Film/TheDarkKnight''.
** Also subverted in the UltimateMarvel universe: when discussing which actors should play the various members of the Ultimates, ComicBook/NickFury nominates Creator/SamuelLJackson for himself. This being an obvious meta-reference, as Marvel had based Ultimate Nick Fury's likeness on Jackson, with the agreement that they'd cast him for the movie version when the time came.

** Given how many comic references are in the show, this becomes infinitely recursive.

Added DiffLines:

** ''ComicBook/TheSuperiorFoesOfSpiderMan'' briefly remarks on this sort of thing; Beetle and Overdrive rob a comic book store and a confused Overdrive questions the recursive FridgeLogic of superhero comics being made in a world where superheroes are a normal part of life.
-->"I didn't even know they still ''made'' these things..."

* IDW's ''ComicBook/BackToTheFuture'' mentions that Marty's rival Needles is a big Music/RedHotChiliPeppers fan. Needles' actor in the movies was Michael "Flea" Balzary, who has been the Chili Peppers' bassist since 1983, leading one to wonder if Needles (or anyone else) ever noticed the resemblance.

** ClarkKenting provides an InUniverse example and justification: one proposed reason nobody realises that Superman is Clark Kent is that they think that Clark Kent is just a guy who happens to look like Superman. Doesn't hurt that there are several characters in the DC universe who happen to have varying shades of resemblance to the Man of Steel, whether it's literal dopplegangers like the Cyborg Superman or just guys who happen to look vaguely similar like Bruce Wayne.

** Related to Howard, a 2016 had Lea Thompson hiring his services. Needless to say, when Aunt May listed the works she had done, ''Film/HowardTheDuck'' wasn't one of them.

*** An issue of ''TheFlash'' shows that Irey West has a poster from the ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'' cartoon in her room. Ya know, the cartoon that had ''her dad'' as a guest star. Though interestingly enough, the cartoon rarely if ever used the heroes' real names. So in theory, ''Teen Titans'' could absolutely be a TV show in the DCUniverse without jeopardizing the identities of the actual Titans.
