Great Odin's Raven!
Some spoilers for Vice. Even before writing some screenplays about Ant-Man, Adam McKay (Anchorman, Step Brothers) was a forerunner of Marvel Comics references in his films ("The Great Odin Raven!"), But his new film Vice shows in fact a brief performance of a classic Marvel character.
There is an expanded shot of the planet-consuming Fantastic Four rogue Galactus in a sequence told by Jesse Plemons' character, who tells some political machinations by Vice President Dick Cheney (Christian Bale) and the Bush administration.
& Galactus # 39; Appearance is temporary, but notable because he sees a Marvel Comics character in a non-Marvel movie. (Vice is distributed by Annapurna Pictures.)
Adam McKay recently reported that he was approached by Marvel Studios on the direction of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. Publicly, McKay would just say, "We're always talking to each other, I think [fig] [Marvel Studios president Kevin] fig is just the biggest, and I think what they're doing there is amazing."
our review of Vice, which we described as "a witty and vicious political commentary that reveals a man whom filmmaker Adam McKay considers to be one of the most insidious and dangerous political figures of the last fifty, in clear, exciting detail."
