* A simple AliceAllusion In ''Film/BabysDayOut'' becomes hilarious when one character says "Hey, Eddie, maybe he [[Literature/AlicesAdventuresInWonderland went down a rabbit hole]]" when you that the scene also has Joe Pantoliano, who would star in [[Film/TheMatrix another movie]] that [[MemeticMutation famously]] used the same reference.

** In this movie, Samuel L. Jackson plays an over-the-top WellIntentionedExtremist Bond-esque villain with plans to reshape the world to his designs, and is opposed by the Kingsmen, a group of top-secret special force dedicated to protecting the world from the shadows. Compare this with his role of Nick Fury in Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse, where he's a level-headed, no-nonsense GenreSavvy leader of SHIELD, a secret peace-keeping organization no different than the Kingsmen, and is archenemies with HYDRA, another group of Well-Intentioned Extremist villains ''also'' with plans to reshape the world to their designs.

*** In a similar vein, there was a TV special called "The Making of 'StarWars'", produced just after the original film was made. When the question of who Leia will end up is addressed, MarkHamill quips, "She's a real chump if she goes with Han."

* In the 1988 SlasherMovie ''Film/EvilLaugh'', a GenreSavvy character named Barney says "These things don't happen in New York. I just hope a guy [[Franchise/FridayThe13th in a hockey mask named Jason]] doesn't show up!" While it was originally a reference to the fact that the film's director had a role in ''Film/FridayThe13thPartVANewBeginning'', it takes a new meaning as a year later [[Film/FridayThe13thPartVIIIJasonTakesManhattan Jason would go to New York]].

* ''HilariousInHindsight/CaptainAmericaCivilWar''


Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar'':
** During ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'', Cap and Tony got in an argument, where Cap kept telling Tony to put on the suit so they could go a few rounds. They finally got their long awaited match-up in this film. [[spoiler:It turns out Cap can fight the suit on even ground, but gets overpowered once Tony analyzes and adapts to his fighting style.]]
** When the above mentioned movie was released on theaters, ''wwwdotchargesdotcomdotbr'' character Tobby theorizes that the Green Goblin will be the Avengers' greatest foe. [[Franchise/SpiderMan Spider-Man's]] debut in this film makes it more likely that ComicBook/NormanOsborn will appear in later movies.
** In Boseman's first major role in ''Film/FortyTwo'', there's a scene where one of his teammates tries to console him amid a torrent of racist jeers from the fans by saying that they're a bunch of "crackpots still fighting the [[UsefulNotes/TheAmericanCivilWar Civil War]]." Conversely, in an early ''ComicBook/FantasticFour'' comic, the titular team is teaching Black Panther baseball. 50 years later, Boseman - the actor for Jackie Robinson - is now playing Black Panther!
** There's a line of dialogue in ''Film/AntMan'' where Spider-Man's powers are alluded to, but it was originally written as a throwaway gag and was not meant to foreshadow his inclusion in the MCU (since the Sony-Marvel deal didn't actually happen until after ''Ant-Man'' finished principal photography). Now it almost seems like a deliberate BrickJoke, considering that both Spider-Man and Ant-Man show up in the same movie for the first time.
** The 2007 film ''Film/KnockedUp'' has several characters reference ''Film/SpiderMan3'' (which came out the same year), including the character played by Paul Rudd (the actor portraying Ant-Man).
** While the film's logo originally presented "Captain America" in large letters above the "Civil War" tagline, [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/civil_war_combo.png changes made to the logo since then]] have caused it to read more as if it says "Marvel Civil War", with "Captain America" as a visual afterthought. Guess what people have been calling the falling-out between Marvel CEO Ike Perlmutter and Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, which is [[http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/marvels-civil-war-why-kevin-820147 believed to have been incited by this movie]]?
** Black Panther outrunning Captain America (to the point where Cap is [[spoiler: forced to commandeer a vehicle]]) comes off as a sort of accidental BrickJoke, given the notorious "On your left!" scene in ''Winter Soldier''.
** The appearance of Spider-Man in the trailers came right after the announcement that Creator/JKSimmons, who played J. Jonah Jameson in the ''Film/SpiderManTrilogy'', was joining the Film/DCExtendedUniverse for the Justice League movie, this also makes more hilarious the memes where Jameson states he's leaving for Gotham since he's tired of waiting for pictures of Spider-Man.
** During the chase with Black Panther, Steve manages to steal a car. [[Film/CaptainAmerica1990 It's not the first time,]] [[Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier or the second.]]
** In this film, Spider-Man is a young hero who latches on to Iron Man as a mentor. One of the phony trailers from ''Film/TropicThunder'' has Robert Downey Jr.'s character playing a monk who has an affair with a novice, played by former Spider-Man Tobey Maguire, hailed even at the time as the closest we'd ever get to canon superhero slash fic.
** The tactics Spider-Man uses when he fights [[spoiler:Giant Man]] are more than reminiscent of those utilized by the [[Anime/AttackOnTitan 104th Training Corps]]. Perhaps he's acting based on [[http://comicbook.com/2015/06/03/attack-on-titan-and-avengers-crossover-released-online-for-free/ prior experience?]]
** Hilarious in ''Foresight'', to a degree. As of this movie, Creator/MartinFreeman plays a character in the MCU. This is only a few months before [[ThoseTwoActors his best-known acting partner]], Creator/BenedictCumberbatch, will play the role of Doctor Strange. One wonders how many ''Series/{{Sherlock}}'' and ''[[Film/TheHobbit Hobbit]]'' jokes will come out of that. Even better, the film also stars ''[[Creator/RobertDowneyJr another]]'' actor known for playing Sherlock Holmes....
** In the comics, Tony Stark handed Peter Parker a copy of the Super Human Registration Act bill, which was still about to be discussed in Congress. He complained that it was as big as a Harry Potter book, and that he preferred to wait for the movie adaptation. Which he did: Spider-Man joins the MCU precisely when the movie adaption of the Act hit theaters.
** The whole ''Empire Strikes Back'' gag got even funnier when Tom Holland revealed a year later that he'd actually never seen the original ''Star Wars'' trilogy.

** First, Dr. Gillen Lane (the main protagonist) arrives on a talk show to hawk a book on the supposed Bible code. He makes his entrance doing a "raise the roof" gesture and jumps over the couch. Just fast-forward to 2005 and TomCruise infamously jumping on a couch during an interview on ''Series/TheOprahWinfreyShow''.

* In the otherwise mediocre 1994 romantic comedy ''Sleep With Me'', Creator/QuentinTarantino's character has an unforgettable monologue ([[HarpoDoesSomethingFunny that he wrote himself]]) where he explains, at length, his [[EpilepticTrees theory]] that the movie ''Film/TopGun'' is actually an extended metaphor for [[HoYay homosexuality.]] This would be funny enough considering the many gay rumors that have swirled around TomCruise over the years, but the clincher of hilarity comes when Tarantino's character Sid insists that Kelly [=McGillis=]'s character represents heterosexuality. Now consider the fact that [[http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20281641,00.html McGillis herself came out as a lesbian]] in 2009.

[[spoiler:According to ''Theater/HarryPotterAndTheCursedChild,'' Bellatrix actually ''was'' pregnant around this time, a fact which many decried as an AssPull since it's not hinted at all in the books]].
