2012 Film Wiki

The Vice President was an unnamed individual who served as the Vice President under the late President Thomas Wilson. The Vice President was killed when his helicopter went down in an ash cloud outside of Pittsburgh, his death gave the title of commander-in-chief to the Speaker of the House, although the Speaker of the House was missing and is presumed dead, so the title of commander-in-chief was taken by the Chief of Staff, Carl Anheuser.


  • Roland Emmerich's previous film Independence Day also had an unseen/unidentified vice president mentioned of dying.
