"Most of the intelligence communities doesn't believe he exists, the ones who do call him the Winter Soldier. He is credited with over two dozens assassinations in the last 50 years."

  7. In AKA Three Lives and Counting, it is said that Karl Malus was 57 when he dies on May 27, 2017 (see 2017 references), meaning he was born between May 28, 1959 and May 27, 1960. In AKA Facetime, it is said that he was the "class of 1978" at university, meaning he began in 1978 (cannot have graduated in 1978 as he would have had to have started university at age 16 maximum if that were the case). This most likely means he graduated senior year at the end of the 1977-1978 academic year, which, by the New York school system, would make him born in 1960. Finally, this would place his date of birth between January 1, 1960 and May 27, 1960, making his date of birth approximately March 1960.

  24. It is stated in Speak of the Devil, The Path of the Righteous, and The Devil You Know that Wilson Fisk was 12 when he killed his father. With the kill dated to November 6, 1973 (see 1970s references), he would have been born between November 7, 1960 and November 6, 1961. So, approximating using the midpoint, around May 1961.

  31. In an interview about Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, it was said that James Gunn noted "that the 31-year-old Haddock was playing a teenager in the film's opening scene. "Meredith Quill is in her late teens, very early twenties at most."" When he later released the official script, it showed that she was 18 in the prologue, which is dated as March 31, 1980. This puts her date of birth at approximately September 30, 1961 (estimated dates of birth should not be put exactly to prevent confusion).

  38. In Cold Steel, it is shown that Rawlins was born in "1962" and graduated in "1984", therefore meaning he was most likely born between January 1, 1962 and August 31, 1962. This would mean that Rawlins was born around approximately early May 1962. Paul Schulze's age at the middle of filming for The Punisher: Season 1, working back from its late 2016 setting, would also place Rawlins' date of birth around early May 1962, so both these pieces of information can be used to approximate Rawlins' month of birth as May 1962.

Based on a weighted calculation from Forest Whitaker's age at the time of filming Black Panther and working back from his scenes, and from Denzel Whitaker's age at the time of filming Black Panther and working back from his scenes. The calculations for these dates and the dates that flashbacks are set are all relative to each other, and can be found in detail here.

  61. Kree (and Carol Danvers, following her blood transfusion giving her Kree biology) are shown in the MCU to age slower than humans.
    Craig Parker plays Taryan in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Season 5, filming at 47.4 years old for scenes set in late May 2018 (see 2018 references). Samuel Roukin plays Faulnak, Taryan's son, in the same season, filming at 37.1 years old for scenes set in late December 2091 (see 2091 references). So, assuming Taryan to have been approximately 30.9 in human years, the average age at which men become fathers for the first time, then Faulnak would be approximately 68.0 in human years in late 2091, making 73.6 years only equivalent to about 68.0 (68.029) - 47.4 (47.355) = 20.7 human ageing years.
    Both Ronan and Carol Danvers are shown to have barely aged at all in a couple of decades. Lee Pace, who plays Ronan, was 34.4 during filming for Guardians of the Galaxy, set in early August 2014 (see 2014 references), but 39.1 during filming for Captain Marvel, set in mid-June 1995 (see 1990s references), implying that Ronan is supposed to look roughly 36 from 1995 through to 2014, for 19.1 years. Similarly, Brie Larson, who plays Carol Danvers, was 28.1 during filming for Avengers: Endgame, set predominantly in October 2023 (see 2023 references), while 28.6 during filming for Captain Marvel, set in mid-June 1995, implying that Danvers is supposed to look roughly 28 from 1995 through to 2023, for 28.4 years.
    Overall, therefore, roughly 73.6 + 19.1 + 28.4 = 121.1 years is supposed to equate to only 20.7 + 0 + 0 = 20.7 years of ageing in human years for Kree, suggesting Kree age roughly 121.1 ÷ 20.7 = 5.9 × slower than humans.
    So, taking a weighted calculation to assume that, given Brie Larson's ages at the times of filming and the films' respective settings, Danvers is supposed to be about 28.3 (weighted average of her age filming Captain Marvel and filming Avengers: Endgame) in roughly October 2009 (weighted average of setting dates of Captain Marvel and Avengers: Endgame), she would therefore have been, 20.3 years earlier at the time of her transfusion on June 23, 1989 (see 1980s references), roughly 20.3 ÷ 5.9 = 3.4 human years younger, 24.9.
    With Danvers then supposed to be approximately 24.9 at the time of her transfusion in June 1989, and human before that point, her date of birth can be approximated to early August 1964. The full details of the calculations may be found here.
  62. On Marvel's timeline, it is shown that this occurred 45 years before "I am Iron Man," which is dated to November 25, 2009, putting it around October 1964.

  69. In Ant-Man and the Wasp, Bill Foster is shown to be approximately 56 (Laurence Fishburne's age at the time of filming) in Spring 2018, and Ava Starr is shown to be approximately 28 (Hannah John-Kamen's age at the time of filming) in Spring 2018. The flashbacks showing a young Ava show Bill Foster through a mix of Laurence Fishburne's son, Langston, 29 at the time of filming, and deageing Laurence Fishburne to how he looked c. 1986, aged 25. Ava is shown to be approximately 7 (RaeLynn Bratten's age at the time of filming). Overall, it can be calculated that Foster was born around July 1965 and Starr around August 1988, and the flashbacks are approximately November 2-4, 1995, when Foster is 30 and Starr is 7.

Based on Carrie-Anne Moss' age at the times of filming Jessica Jones: Season 1, A Cold Day in Hell's Kitchen, her three episodes of Iron Fist: Season 1, Mean Right Hook, and Jessica Jones: Season 2 and working back from the timeline settings of the seasons/episodes, Jeri Hogarth's date of birth would be approximately June 1967.

  89. Using Meredith Salenger's age at the time of filming No Good Deed, working back from the setting, Lily Ellison would have been born around January 1970. However, using Chris Carfizzi's age at the time of filming No Good Deed, working back from the setting, Jason Ellison would have been born around April 1975. Jason says Mitchell and Lily Ellison renewed their wedding vows when he was 8, but, using these ages, Lily would have only been around 13. So, Lily Ellison must have been born earlier than January 1970, and Jason later than April 1975. Adjusting so that Lily was at least 18, it can be calculated that Lily was born around January 1968 and Jason late January 1977, with the vows renewed around January 28, 1986, just after Lily turned 18 and before Jason turned 9. The details of the calculation may be found here.
  90. In I Get Physical, Mariah Dillard says Buggy Stokes had Harlem's Paradise commissioned in the "late '60s". If the first third of the '60s is "early", the middle third is "mid", and the final third is "late", then the "late '60s" can be approximated as the middle of the final third of the '60s - ⅚ through the decade. This is May 2, 1968.
  91. In Captain Marvel, Nick Fury is shown to have been born on "07/04/1950", July 4, 1950, and says he was born in Alabama. He then says he became a soldier "straight outta high school". By Alabama kindergarten entrance age, Fury would have started kindergarten in September 1955, meaning he would finish high school in Spring 1968. He can then be assumed to have become a soldier during Summer 1968, approximately July 1968.
