** After the release of ''Film/{{Godzilla 2014}}'' with Warner Bros. and the reveal that they were working on a ''King Kong'' reboot with Universal, Creator/LegendaryPictures announced that they were using the former to kickstart a kaiju-focused cinematic universe (known as the "Godzilla-Kong Universe"). The ''Kong'' reboot, which [[ChannelHop changed distribution from Universal to Warner Bros.]] and is titled ''[[Film/SkullIsland Kong: Skull Island]]'', will establish King Kong within the universe, followed by a sequel to ''Godzilla (2014)'' (which will bring Mothra, Rodan, and King Ghidorah into the universe as well) and a fourth film pitting Godzilla and Kong against each other.

* The Wiki/SCPFoundation takes place in the same universe as Wiki/TheWanderersLibrary. Also, due to the fact that Wiki/SCPFoundation "has no canon" it can share the same universe with anything, since it is up to the reader to decide what is or isn't canon. Several crossover stories have been written by various authors, crossing it with a wide variety of works.

* Fox had already started something similar with their ''Film/XMenFilmSeries'' by creating more character-centric spinoffs, a job aided the huge background number of X-Men-affiliated characters. A series of movies centered on Wolverine (''Film/XMenOriginsWolverine'', ''Film/TheWolverine'', and ''Film/{{Logan}}'') was the start, followed up by ''Film/Deadpool''.

* ''ComicStrip/SafeHavens'' and ''ComicStrip/OnTheFastrack'', both comics done by Bill Holbrook, take place in the same universe and have on occasion crossed over with each other (the major point being Fastrack funding the mission to Mars Samantha of Safe Havens is planning). It's implied that ''WebComic/KevinAndKell'' is a parallel universe connected to their universe, but it's unlikely to be confirmed since K&K is under a different syndication, therefore little chance of a CrossOver.
