    This was never established in the old shows, but something like it was alluded to in the Thundercats Reboot (which needs to get uncancelled, please and thank you. I don't care if it's a 6 year old cartoon by now).

    In that, flashbacks of Mumm-Ra's ancient invasion showed that the main villains of the SilverHawks and TigerSharks were among his generals (also that, at this time, the Thunderan civilization were also under his rule before they rebelled).

    In the 80s, Transformers, G.I. Joe, Inhumanoids, and Jem and the Holograms all took place on the same world. The key link was the Not Geraldo reporter appearing in each series with the same name and voice. But Joe and Transformers also had a crossover ep.


    John Hughes apparently put almost all his movies in the same fictional universe, even making notes for himself on where various characters lived in the recurring fictional suburb of Shermer, Illinois. Ferris Bueller himself even cameos in She's Having a Baby.

    Eh, not really. They made Man of Steel and then BvS was deliberately planned as as sequel to it. It's not as if they made MoS and then decided to graft it onto the Nolanverse.

    Video game wise, there's a bit of crossover between Hideo Kojima's non-Metal Gear work. Policenaughts, Zone of the Enders and Snatcher all reference Metal Gear or vice versa, and one character-Meryl-even appears in both PN and MGS. However, there's a few contradictions and continuity issues between them, so maybe it's just "easter eggs".
    Metal Gear gets very meta and very convoluted just within its own continuity, so that's to be expected.

    For a bit of fun, it's possible E.T and Star Wars exist in the same universe, as E.T recognizes a Yoda costume in the film and we see E.Ts in the senate in TPM. Of course it's just a two-way nod but a lot of fans have ran with it...(Including wondering if E.T's telekinetic/telepathic skills are somehow linked to the force).
    There's more to it in the Expand Universe/Legends. The "E.T." race was given the same name in a SW holonet news entry that was used in the novelizations. And there was mention of them trying to get funding for an extragalactic expedition, as I recall. Of course, Elliot in the movie has Star Wars action figures and even cites them by name, so that gets weird...

    Ah, yes, NBC's "Blackout Thursday!" There was another crossover event with characters from sitcoms showing up on other shows in one night, but Seinfeld didn't participate in that one.

    Or the shows exist in a quantum-relative state with each other they were fictionally exist only when being observed. Community and Cougar Town got even weirder. Not only did they reference each other as fictional shows, but they also had characters do crossover cameos.

    I've thought this too. It makes even more sense in light of Prometheus. That mutagenic black goo is either the origin of or derived from the Thing species.

    Screenwriter David Peoples considers Soldier with Kurt Russel to be in the same universe as [I]Blade Runner[/I, and there are some Easter Eggs included in the movie to back it up. Ridley Scott has openly entertained the idea of Blade Runner and Alien being connected and there are some hints to that ranging from extras on the Prometheus blu ray to text screens made up for Aliens.

    Personally, I think the reboot Battlestar Galactica makes a lot of sense as a distant spoilers:
    prequel]
    end of spoilers to whole thing.

    (Reginald VelJohnson appeared as Sgt. Powell in both.)

    I'd be shocked to learn that Chuck hasn't also made references to Die Hard as a fictional movie, though.

    But speaking of Die Hard, it can be connected to several action action movies and thrillers.

    The original DCU, not the DCEU or the Arrowverse.

    I don't know why this didn't occur to me before but "Homicide:Life On The Street", the "Law and Order/SUV/Criminal Intent" franchise and the "Chicago Fire/PD/MD" franchise are all in the same universe.

    Nice! So Mumm-Ra, Mon-Star & T-Ray teamed up!

    Wish this was explored further.

While the only true crossover novel is "Tarzan at the Earth's Core," other connections include the fictional Burroughs (John Carter's nephew who has encountered David Innes and Carson Napier), Jason Gridley and his Gridley Wave (allowing for communication with Pellucidar and Barsoom). Also, Tarzan and Jane appear in the Custer Family novel "The Eternal Savage." Just with the 50 connected books, there's a ton of great ideas to pluck from.

    I mean, c'mon, Hollywood. 2018 marks 100 years of Tarzan films. Why hasn't he fought dinosaurs yet?
    I've bought a few issues, but haven't read them yet.
    I does seem like they've pulled everyone in there, from the Center of the Earth to Venus.

    Including the dinosaurs....



    And never on film, but on TV the Filamation animated Tarzan did have him go to a Pellucidar like world and face a dinosaur.



    And the later Disney Tarzan....

    Seems like something Netfix could take up for a mini-series or done in one movie.
    Although I'd want the old Pacific Animation Corporation/Rankin-Bass Animated Entertainment style.
    Not the new versions.

    That’s the Commandoverse. Predator takes place in the fictional Latin American country Val Verde. In Commando, General Arius blackmails John Matrix to help him overthrow the president of... Val Verde.

    Also, can’t believe you can list of all that and only blergh at Alien 3!
