** Their grey coloration, lack of facial features apart from monochromatic eyes and adaptability also evoke the version of Amazo from ''JusticeLeagueUnlimited.''

* ''Film/XMenOriginsWolverine'': In the comics, adamantium is a man made metal that was created in a laboratory. The movie instead establishes that adamantium comes from a meteorite that crashed in a small African nation, where the locals worship it as a sacred treasure. That's pretty much ''exactly'' like vibranium, the Wakandan metal from the ''Comicbook/BlackPanther'' and ''Comicbook/CaptainAmerica'' comics.

* Aldrich Killian from ''Film/IronMan3'' has almost nothing in common with his comic book counterpart, and has much more in common with Mallen, the [[SuperSerum Extremis]]-powered terrorist from Creator/WarrenEllis' ''Comicbook/IronMan'' run.

** Creator/TimBurton didn't want to use Harvey Bullock in the 1989 ''Film/{{Batman}}'' movie, so he created the overweight, gruff, corrupt Lt. Eckhardt in the Batman movie.

** It even extends to the comic, which has featured among the expanded rogues gallery a [[TheFlash Gorilla Grodd]] expy and aliens resembling the tentacles. And the HumongousMecha piloted by the Underminer in an effort to frame the Incredibles resembles WesternAnimation/TheIronGiant with a red paint job.
*** Possibly more of a ShoutOut, given Brad Bird's involvement in both.

* General Hager from ''Film/FantasticFourRiseOfTheSilverSurfer'' was originally supposed to be ComicBook/NickFury, but this had to be changed at the last minute due to [[ExiledFromContinuity rights issues]] ([[TwentiethCenturyFox Fox]] owns film rights to the ''FF'', while [[Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse Marvel Studios]] has rights to Fury). It's especially obvious since one of Hager's conversations with Mr. Fantastic are taken almost word-for-word from a conversation between Mr. Fantastic and Nick Fury in ''[[UltimateMarvel Ultimate Extinction]]''.

* Sort of a type-casting example with Paul Bettany. He was in a biopic on CharlesDarwin, and some reviews noted his previous role as Stephen Maturin in film ''Film/MasterAndCommander'' who comes across as somewhat similar to Darwin in his time on the ''Beagle'' (intellectual naturalist on a ship, interacts with giant tortoises at one point).

* John Cusack's HitmanWithAHeart in ''War Inc.'' is an expy of his character in the earlier film ''GrossePointeBlank'', and almost every other character in the new film has an equivalent in the previous one.
