Apparently, this Easter egg for the sake of fun hidden in the film, the brothers Rousseau, and removed the “War of Infinity” and the pilot episode of “Slowed development.” However, for those who are versed in the TV crossovers of fans, this turned out to be something more than just a reference to the previous works of the directors.
They believe that by combining “War of Infinity” with “Slowed Development” through Funke, the authors moved the cinematic universe of Marvel to the same fictional world where there is a universe of TV series, and inside it has its own crossovers.
For example, in addition to Funke, in one of the series “Slowed Development” appeared detective John Munch (John Munch). This character first appeared in the series “Slaughter Division” and became known for the fact that he appeared in 9 more TV shows, in fact, combining them all with his presence.
Mancha was also mentioned in many films and serials: the detective was remembered in the “X-Files”, and they appeared in “The Simpsons”, which were in “The Griffins”, which in turn referred to “Walker, Texas Ranger” and so on. Thanks to the “Family Guy”, the Marvel cable car can be associated with almost anything, but the fans are most interested in the possible connection with “Batman”.
They found out that Tobias Funke of Slowed Development appeared in The War of Infinity, and John Munch from The Slaughter Department was in Slowed Development. Dr. Roxanne Turner from St. Elsvere appeared in the Slaughter Department, and the doctors from St. Elsvere were also on the TV series Chirs.
Then in one of the episodes of the series “Carolina in New York” appeared simultaneously Chandler from “Friends” and Dr. Frazer Crane of “Chirs”. Ursula from “Friends” appeared in “Crazy for You”, where the character of Sally Rogers from the “Dick Van Dyke Show” also appeared. She also appeared in the crossover series “Hello dear, I’m at home!”, In which they mentioned “Mr. Ed.”
In it appeared the Grandmother from “The Villagers in Beverly Hills”, and Sam Draker from the “Green expanses” was in one of the episodes of “The Villagers”. Colonel Hogan from the “Heroes of Hogan” was mentioned in “Green expanses”, and Colonel Klink was shown in a traditional joke with a window in “Batman” in 1966 with Adam West.
