Reinhardt speaks with the Malick brothers

  36. Based on Gwyneth Paltrow's age at the middle of the times of filming for Iron Man, Iron Man 2, The Avengers, Iron Man 3, Spider-Man: Homecoming, and Avengers: Infinity War, working back from the dates of the middle of each film's setting or the dates of her individual scenes and taking a weighted average, Pepper would have been born around October 1973. Iron Man shows her birthday to be the day before Tony is kidnapped - approximately February 12th. The closest February 12th to October 1973 is February 12, 1974.

  42. In Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Yondu says that he was sold into slavery as an infant and then spent 20 years in slavery, before Stakar Ogord freed him. Based on Michael Rooker's age when filming both movies, Yondu would have been born around January 1955, and so would have been sold around February. 20 years later, he would have been freed in April 1975. This fits with him then spending many years collecting Ego's children from 1975 up to any point between 1980 and 1988, then the final one, Quill, in 1988.

  47. In AKA Shark in the Bathtub, Monster in the Bed, Jeri Hogarth says she wore yellow to a funeral aged "8". Hogarth's date of birth is approximated as June 1967 (see 1960s references), making the time she was 8 years old June 1975-June 1976, so this occurred around approximately December 1975.

  52. In Kandahar, Micro says to Castle, "Happy birthday, Frank. It's the 15th. Happy birthday." 1½ days later, in Resupply, Curtis specifies that it is "November". Therefore, Frank's birthday is November 15th. Based on Jon Bernthal's age at the middle of the times of filming for Daredevil: Season 2 and The Punisher: Season 1, working back from the middle of the dates of the series and taking a weighted average, Castle would have been born around September 1976, meaning the closest November 15th is November 15, 1976.

  62. In AKA WWJD?, Kilgrave says, "[My parents] ran away. From promising careers... and their 10-year-old son." He also discusses how he was 10 when they left in AKA Sin Bin, which also features Jessica being told by Professor Davies that Albert and Louise Thompson, Kilgrave's parents, "skipped town in '88." With this dated to May 9, 1988, Kilgrave would have been born around November 1977.

  67. In You Know My Steez, a flashback is shown of Willis training Carl at boxing. In the background is a notice about an event coming up on "Friday November 15" (which would be 1996) and then "Monday 6-10 January" (1997), placing this around early November 1996. It is shown in Take It Personal that in May of whichever year (it refers to the car being a "1993" model, so at least 1994 or 1995 to refer to it as such), when Willis was 18 and Carl was 17, they stole a 1993 corvette. It can be assumed, considering the fact that the actors already look older than 16 and 18 in the November 1996 flashback and Mike Colter's age at the times of filming suggesting Luke would have turned 17 around the early 1990s, as well as the way the brothers' story is told, it can be assumed that they stole the car in the first May after the November 1996 flashback, May 1997. In Take It Personal, Luke says, "He was 2 years older than me," and in Now You're Mine, Willis says, "And everything was good until the preacher's wife, 2 years later, had a baby boy." With the paper saying they are 17 and 18 in May 1997, it can be assumed that they are about 1 year and 10 months apart in age, with Carl having just turned 17 and Willis about to turn 19, placing their dates of birth in April 1980 and June 1978 respectively.

  70. In AKA Facetime, it is stated that Karl Malus was the "class of 1978". In AKA Three Lives and Counting, it is said that he died aged "57" in May 2017, making him born between May 1959 and May 1960 and therefore meaning he began, not finished, university in 1978. He would start around September.
