But now we know the stories are true. Other worlds, with names like Asgard, do exist. And beings once revered as gods, like Thor, have returned, leaving us with more questions, and... an enormous mess to clean up."

He asks Connors if she is doing this out of guilt because of a family member, which causes Connors to abruptly finish the session.
- As the rest of the inmates leave, Connors stops Lucas, confessing that it was her brother, who died in prison, which inspired her to do this job; she felt guilty that she neglected him while she went to get her masters. Lucas feels guilty for asking, but Connors knows that it was only to avoid her questions. Lucas reveals that he is innocent, but that he is guilty of a lot of other things.
- Michael Peterson awakens to learn that he is missing a leg, his eye has been replaced with a Backscatter X-Ray Eye Implant, and that he now works for the Clairvoyant.

Behind the Scenes
- In the comic Young Avengers Vol 2, Issue 8, the Young Avengers from Earth-616 traveled across the Multiverse in order to find their missing teammate, Speed. They arrived at Earth-199999, which is the official designation for the Marvel Cinematic Universe within Marvel's multiverse system. Adding this into the MCU's continuity, the Young Avengers would have arrived on June 16, 2013, but, after not finding Speed, they would have continued their search travelling to Earth-8765 the following day (June 17th).
- In Fifteen, it is said that the USB was given at Alex Wilder's "sixth grade party", presumably his birthday party. With Wilder and the other four older Runaways' dates of birth dated to early 2001, they would have been in sixth grade August 2012-June 2013. Wilder's date of birth is specifically dated to January 2001, making his sixth grade birthday party January 2013.
- Iron Man 3
- In Ant-Man and the Wasp, several moments are shown from Ava Starr's past at S.H.I.E.L.D.. Hannah John-Kamen was 28.05 at the middle of filming and should not be playing Starr at an age any younger than ⅔ of her actual age, so 18.70, meaning, based on Starr's approximated date of birth (see 1980s references), that the scenes should be after April 26, 2007. One moment appears to say "01-8 Thu", suggesting it is Thursday, January 8, 2009. Evenly distributing between these two dates, the first set of scenes should be approximately September 29, 2007, March 4, 2008, and August 7, 2008, before then January 8, 2009. Then after that, the remaining scenes are between then and the fall of S.H.I.E.L.D. on January 12, 2014 (see 2014 references). Evenly distributing again, the remaining scenes should be January 9, 2010, January 11, 2011, January 12, 2012, and January 12, 2013.
- Ant-Man and the Wasp
- Sometimes the Marvel Cinematic Universe alludes to events which happened in our world, and it is assumed they happened on the same dates in the universe, for timeline purposes.
- Spider-Man: Far From Home
- Luke Cage: 2.04: I Get Physical
- The Punisher: 2.01: Roadhouse Blues

- Guardians of the Galaxy Prelude
- In Daredevil, Carl Hoffman confesses that he and Christian Blake were "approached by a man working for Wilson Fisk 18 months ago" on February 14, 2015 (see 2015 references). This can either refer to "exactly 18 months ago," so April 14, 2013, or the more vague "during April 2013." A weighted average, putting more weight on the more specific, would result in them getting approached on approximately April 15, 2013.
- Daredevil: 1.13: Daredevil
- Black Widow
- In Black Widow, an opening montage shows several scenes of the Red Room training girls, including Natasha Romanoff, and operating through history, which is implied to be occurring after Natasha Romanoff and Yelena Belova were separated on September 6, 1995 (see other references) and before the beginning of the 2016 events of the movie on June 25, 2016 (see 2016 references).
The first collection of scenes is of a braid receiving a bow, a group of girls being brainwashed by cartoons, and a group of girls ice skating. In the ice skating scene, the girls appear to be roughly middle school age, and can be taken to be approximately 12.5 years old. This scene can therefore be approximated to when Romanoff was 12.5 years old, so approximately June 3, 1997. The scenes with the braid and the cartoons can therefore be distributed between Romanoff and Belova being separated and the ice skating scene, so on April 7, 1996 and November 8, 1996, respectively.
The montage also features two shots of girls marching, one of which is when they are roughly middle school age and can be taken to be approximately 13 years old, so on December 3, 1997.
The second shot of girls marching, two shots of girls preparing weapons, a group of soldiers in a drum line, and Dreykov watching a group of girls fire at targets occur in the movie when the girls are roughly high school age. Similarly, Black Widow Prelude features a scene of a group of high school age girls doing ballet and one of Romanoff firing at a target. These can be distributed throughout the years in which Romanoff was 14 through 18 years old, placing the comic firing scene on September 19, 1998, the second marching shot on April 1, 1999, the first shot of girls preparing weapons on November 16, 1999, the ballet scene on February 13, 2001, the drum line on September 30, 2001, and the second shot of girls preparing weapons on May 16, 2002.
Two scenes, one from Black Widow Prelude, and several flashback scenes from Avengers: Age of Ultron, both featuring Romanoff being nervous for her graduation ceremony, can be placed near the ceremony. The ceremony itself can be taken to be when Romanoff was 21, analogous to a college graduation, so May 27, 2005. Similarly, Black Widow has two scenes in which the girls are in their early twenties: one of a group of girls doing ballet, and one of a girl doing gymnastics. These scenes can be distributed between January 1, 2003, the year Romanoff turned 20, and May 27, 2005, approximately when she would graduate. This would place the Black Widow ballet scene on May 6, 2003, the gymnastics scene on September 8, 2003, the Avengers: Age of Ultron ballet flashback on May 15, 2004, the scene of Romanoff pretending to lose on September 17, 2004, Romanoff shooting on January 20, 2005.
The montage in Black Widow then features several members of the Black Widows being spotted throughout the world, starting with Romanoff, as well as shots of a Widow putting on a Widow's Bite and a belt, and a group of Widows lining up. These scenes can be placed between the graduation and the 2016 events in Morocco on June 18, 2016 (see 2016 references), while ensuring that Romanoff's scene is before January 1, 2008, when she defected from the Red Room and joined S.H.I.E.L.D. (see 2000s references). This would place Romanoff's scene on December 25, 2006, and the rest on July 24, 2008, February 21, 2010, September 21, 2011, and April 20, 2013. A scene in this montage which is attached to this last scene can then be placed to the last day, April 20, 2013. The scene with the Widow putting on her belt and accessory, as well as the Widows marching, can then be placed on November 18, 2014.
Three scenes from the montage feature Dreykov influencing two political events, as well as a shot of him watching his monitors. The two scenes of him influencing political events must be before Dreykov is thought dead in January 2008, and can therefore be distributed between then and Romanoff and Belova being separated. This places the first scene on October 14, 1999 and the second on November 22, 2003.
Two events are mentioned to have happened during this period of time in The Avengers: Romanoff killing people in São Paulo and another instance of her setting a hospital on fire. These can be distributed between Romanoff's graduation and her defection, and can therefore be placed on April 8, 2006 and February 18, 2007, respectively. The Avengers Prelude: Black Widow Strikes describes an incident involving Romanoff which is described as having occurred "long before [Romanoff] defected to S.H.I.E.L.D.." This can therefore be taken to have happened within the first half of the time between graduation and defection, so on approximately January 19, 2006.
Black Widow Prelude features a scene of Romanoff looking over New York City after joining S.H.I.E.L.D.. This would likely occur within a month of Romanoff joining S.H.I.E.L.D., so in approximately February 2008.
The montage goes on to feature several clips of Melina Vostokoff's experiments being conducted, beginning with someone reading the information which Alexei Shostakov had stolen, a scene of pigs being studied, and a failed surgery. Later in the movie, Belova mentions that Romanoff was not subject to Vostokoff's chemical mind control, meaning that the experiment was completed after Romanoff defected and before the events in Morocco, so on approximately April 9, 2012. The person reading the stolen information can be approximated to the day after it was received, so September 6, 1995. The remaining scenes can be distributed between then and the completion of the experiment, placing the pigs on December 22, 2003 and the failed surgery on February 14, 2008.
Finally, a group of scenes of war and a scene of a person sewing a Black Widow logo onto a piece of cloth are shown. These can be distributed throughout Romanoff and Belova being separated and the first scene and the events in Morocco, resulting in each conflict happening on July 26, 1997, June 16, 1999, May 6, 2001, March 27, 2003, February 14, 2005, January 5, 2007, November 25, 2008, October 16, 2010, and September 5, 2012, and the sewing scene on July 27, 2014.
- In The Perfect Game, a flashback is shown of Benjamin Poindexter and Julie Barnes at the Brooklyn Suicide Prevention Center. They look the same age as in 2017, so it can be assumed to be not long before the present events. Poindexter is a special agent at the FBI, so his work at the hotline can be taken to have ended at least 4 years prior. It is presumably not much longer ago than that, however, given their appearances. It is seemingly some time into his time working there, since he has become fixated on Barnes, but not too long given the way she encourages him and how he comes across. It can be assumed, therefore, to be approximately in the middle of his "1 [year]" (stated in The Perfect Game) there. Being a special agent by October 23, 2017 (see 2017 references), the scene can therefore be placed about 4.5 years prior, around April 23, 2013.
- Daredevil: 3.05: The Perfect Game
- Connor Falk was born on June 18, 2005, making him 12.2 during filming for Refraction in September 2017. Working forward from Chase Stein's date of birth in January 2001 (see 2000s references), this would make it around April 2013. He is already at Atlas, so assuming it has a junior high, this would work as sixth grade. The final game of the year in a Brentwood area school in the 2012-13 season, April 30, 2013, can be used as an estimation.
- Runaways: 1.07: Refraction
- Luke Cage: 1.02: Code of the Streets
- Runaways: 1.01: Reunion
- Iron Fist: 2.01: The Fury of Iron Fist
- Runaways: 3.05: Enter The Dreamland
- Iron Fist: 1.01: Snow Gives Way
- Through Runaways it is said that PRIDE sacrificed someone to Jonah once a year for 15 years (Fifteen: "One a year for 15 years", Hostile: "You ever notice that every year one of your young parishioners goes missing?", "Same time of year, every year", Last Rites: "One a year"), resulting in fifteen sacrifices (Fifteen: fifteen names are listed, Kingdom: "Fifteen kids have died in this room", Doomsday: "How could you murder fifteen kids?", Last Rites: "Like you killed fifteen runaways"). Fifteen annual sacrifices would amount in fact to 14 years start to finish, and with the last one in December 2017 (see 2017 references), that would make the first sacrifice around 2003.
However, there is evidence for 15 + years of sacrifices, not 14 years. In Fifteen, it is said they have taken runaways for "over 15 years". In Doomsday it is said that PRIDE has had a grip on the parents' "lives for the last 15 years". As well as this, Season 3 suggests there was in fact a further sacrifice (Smoke and Mirrors: "I only sacrificed seventeen innocent kids" (including Andre Compton, which the previous counts did not), Rite of Thunder: "She helped murder seventeen teenagers", Enter The Dreamland: "We are the seventeen"). Plus "one a year for 15 years" could be taken as "one a year, and we've been doing that for 15 years" rather than "one a year fifteen times, amounting to 15 years". So, it would seem overall that yes, the sacrifices started around 15 years before 2017, not 14. This, then, would make the first sacrifice 2002.
However, in Doomsday, a flashback to "fifteen years ago" before December 2017, set shortly after the first sacrifice. While this would align with 2002, Nico Minoru is shown to be a baby only about 3-4 months old. With Nico born around January 2001 (see other references), this would make it roughly April-May 2001. Amy Minoru is also shown to be about 2½. With Amy born around December 1998 (see 1990s references), this would make it roughly mid-2001. Given this, and the lack of flexibility to the children's ages, particularly baby Nico, then the latest this scene can be is June 2001. So, taking this latest possible time, the "fifteen years ago" must be taken to be a rounding from 16 years, and the first sacrifice, Brooks Watten, must also be moved from 2002 to June 2001. With the Metamorphosis flashback to "fifteen years ago" of the Wilders getting their house set not long before this and particularly given it is also stretched already to 16 years prior, but enough time to get Brooks Watten, it can be assumed that Watten did not undergo 6 months at the Church of Gibborim like the other Runaways, and was procured in May 2001, with the house scene set that same month.
With it said in Hostile that the sacrifices are the "same time of year, every year", it should be assumed that almost all the sacrifices were in early December, like the one on December 4, 2015 (see 2015 references) and the one on December 8, 2017 (see 2017 references), so likely the Friday closest to December 6th. With fourteen sacrifices prior to Destiny Gonzalez and not including Brooks Watten, the second sacrifice would therefore, however, be 14 years prior in December 2003, 2½ years after the first. Given Jonah deteriorates over a year, it should be taken that there were never two sacrifices more than 18 months apart. So, it may be taken that the second sacrifice was in fact December 2002, the third June 2004, and then the fourth December 2005, with the fourth to sixteenth (Gonzalez) all being annually in December from 2005 to 2017, and the first few negligible enough to be discounted in the statement of "same time of year, every year".
Fifteen names, up to and including Gonzalez, are shown in Fifteen, meaning there is a bonus sacrifice not listed on the computer somewhere between Brooks Watten and Destiny Gonzalez, making them between the second and fifteenth sacrifice, so it may be guessed that they were the eighth/ninth. To decide which, taking halfway between June 2001 and December 2017, it would have been roughly late 2009, making it closer to the eighth sacrifice than the ninth. So, it may have been taken to have been the eighth.
Therefore, overall, the sacrifices were: Brooks Watten June 2001, Adam Cooper December 6, 2002, Jamie Baxter June 8, 2004 (halfway between December 6, 2002 and December 9, 2005), Tim Bennett December 9, 2005, Xavier Marquez December 8, 2006, Karly Scolari December 7, 2007, James Braswyck December 5, 2008, unknown runaway December 4, 2009, Anthony Rocha December 3, 2010, Kim Hwang December 9, 2011, Bridget Bynum December 7, 2012, John Donahue December 6, 2013, Emily Wong December 5, 2014, Yvonne Taylor December 4, 2015, Brian Geparhart December 9, 2016, and finally Destiny Gonzalez (failed sacrifice) December 8, 2017 and Andre Compton December 11, 2017 (see 2017 references). Adam Cooper to Destiny Gonzalez would have been taken 6 months in advance.
- Runaways: 1.04: Fifteen
- Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: 1.13: T.R.A.C.K.S.
- In Step in the Arena, Carl Lucas/Luke Cage's hair growth would suggest approximately 4 months between his first day and nearly attacking Comanche in the courtyard, and a further 2 months between then and Squabbles being killed and Lucas/Cage being attacked again, with his escape the next day. This all takes place before January 20, 2014, the firm date for when Reva Connors is killed (see 2014 references). Ideally, it would be a good few months at least before her death. However, in Can't Front on Me, Shades says, "My last year in Seagate, me and Comanche got paid by this juiced-in-guard, Rackham, to beat the shit out of some guy named Carl Lucas." In Code of the Streets, in November 2015 (see 2015 references), Shades says, "I just got home [...] Three years this time, Seagate," suggesting he was released in late 2015, so his "last year in Seagate" would start in late 2014, but Cage is already out and Connors is already dead by then. If Shades is taken to be very loosely meaning "just" when he says "just got home", you could maybe take it that he got home a little earlier in 2015, but still, this does not work, with Cage escaping absolutely no later than January 2014. At a stretch, it can be taken that Shades is referring to the calendar year of 2014 as his last year at Seagate, released in the first half of 2015, so only a few months in and with 2015 not counting as his last "year" - and he is also only meaning "just" loosely, back for about half a year. With this, it would mean that his second attack on Lucas/Cage, the attack that he is referring to, can be in January 2014 and still loosely fit his statement. However, with Connors killed on January 20, 2014, this is very late for Lucas/Cage's escape. At an absolute minimum, they spend a few weeks together after the escape and before her death. So, all things considered, the attack can be dated to January 1, 2014, just about fitting Shades' statement at a stretch, and allowing Cage and Connors 18 days (2nd-20th), as much as possible, living freely together before her death. This makes Lucas/Cage nearly attacking Comanche roughly November 1, 2013, and his first day at Seagate roughly July 1, 2013, based on hair growth. The rest of the flashbacks in Step in the Arena are placed between July 2013 and January 2014 accordingly.
- Luke Cage: 1.04: Step in the Arena
- In Reunion, it is mentioned that Stein, Wilder, Yorkes, Minoru, and Dean used to play Twister when they were 12. Their average date of birth is January 2001 (see 2000s references), meaning the middle of their time as 12-year-olds (as an approximation) was approximately July 2013.
- Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: 5.02: Orientation Part Two
- Luke Cage: 2.05: All Souled Out
- In Scar Tissue, a flashback is shown of Billy Russo and Frank Castle watching a little league game. They do not look much younger than in the present events (2018), so can be taken as 2013, before their final tour began in September 2013 (see other references). The little league season in 2013 was approximately June 21st-August 25th. Approximating with the middle of the season, the scene would be roughly July 23rd/24th. However, it should likely be a weekend day. With the closest weekend day being Sunday, July 21st, the scene can therefore be taken as July 21, 2013.
- The Punisher: 2.04: Scar Tissue
- The flashback in On and On of Luke Cage being visited by his parents in prison appears to take place between his arrival and his first intervention in Step in the Arena. With these scenes dated to July 1, 2013 and August 14, 2013 respectively (see other references), the visit can be approximated to the midpoint between these dates, July 23, 2013.
- Luke Cage: 2.07: On and On
- Runaways: 3.02: The Great Escape
- In 3 AM and Two Dead Men, flashbacks are shown of Frank Castle spending time with his children some time before their deaths. As mentioned in Penny and Dime, his family were killed the day after he got back from a rotation, which is said in Home to have been Operation Cerberus in Kandahar. Therefore, these scenes cannot be between his return and their deaths, so must be before Castle left for Kandahar, which is dated to September 14, 2013 (see other references). There is a further scene in Memento Mori with the family spending time with Billy Russo at the Central Park carousel, which does not present clearly whether it is the day of the family's deaths or a previous time. However, Maria and Frank Jr.'s clothes are different in this scene than when they are shown on the day of their death in later flashbacks in Memento Mori, suggesting it is a different day and therefore before Kandahar. As well as this, Russo says in Virtue of the Vicious on December 12, 2016 that he has not seen Castle for a "couple years now". As he wants to cover up the fact that he has recently spoken with Castle, he is saying that the last time that he had seen Castle before the last month is in fact the last time he had seen him, therefore meaning that the last time Castle and Russo saw each other was late 2014, so the Memento Mori scene cannot be in 2015. Finally, in 3 AM, it is shown that Maria Castle woke Frank at 10:30 on the day of their deaths, and in Kinbaku it is said that the massacre was at midday, so there would not be the time for them to get ready, go to Central Park, have Russo join them for a chunk of time, then have Russo leave before midday.
So, these three scenes all take place before the Kandahar deployment, which began on September 14, 2013 (see other references). However, both children look the same as they do in April 2015 (due to the scenes being filmed at the same time), so it can be assumed that they took place in the weeks preceding the Kandahar placement, to get them as close as possible to 2015. Castle has a buzz cut in the 3 AM and Two Dead Men scenes but longer hair in the Memento Mori scene. The military buzz cut is likely shortly after or shortly before a deployment, and since, as explained, the scenes should be as late as possible (Summer 2013) and not as far back as 2012 (when Castle got back from his last deployment), the Memento Mori scene should therefore be placed preceding the other two, before Castle shaved his head ahead of his deployment. It can finally be reasoned that the 3 AM and Memento Mori scenes take place around the weekend before September 14, 2013, September 7-8, 2013, and the Memento Mori scene approximated as the weekend before, around September 1, 2013.
- The Punisher: 1.13: Memento Mori
- The Punisher: 1.01: 3 AM
- The Punisher: 1.02: Two Dead Men
- Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: 1.02: 0-8-4
- In 0-8-4, Nick Fury reprimands Phil Coulson over the damage done to the Bus so fast, saying, "It only took you six days to take a completely renovated piece of state-of-the-art machinery and turn it into scrap?!" The reasoned date for him saying this is September 14th, referring to giving it to him on September 8th.
- Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: 1.01: Pilot
- In Pilot, Peterson says to his son, "What do you say we go out to your aunt Mindy's this weekend?" While this implies that this is a weekday, further evidence places this as happening on a Sunday.
- In Pilot, Grant Ward is promoted to Level 7 at S.H.I.E.L.D. He receives his new ID badge, with the issue date saying "2013SEP09" clearly on display for a second. Therefore the date Ward is promoted is September 9, 2013.
- Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: 6.06: Inescapable
- In T.A.H.I.T.I., Simmons says that she has known Skye for "a few months." The reasoned date for them meeting is September 9, 2013, and the reasoned date for her saying this is December 29, 2013, which fits as 3½ months.
- In The Things We Bury, Ward states that he "lived with [Coulson's team] for months." The reasoned date for them coming together is September 9, 2013, and the reasoned date for him leaving is January 14, 2014, which fits as 4 months.
- In Face My Enemy, Skye jokingly states that "[May] just said more words than I've heard her say in a year," implying that she has known May for over a year. The reasoned date for her saying this is January 9, 2015, and the reasoned date for her first meeting May is September 9, 2013, which works.
- Jessica Jones: 1.05: AKA The Sandwich Saved Me
- In AKA The Sandwich Saved Me, it is shown on screen that Jones met Kilgrave "18 months ago". The date of the bus crash incident which ended their time together is definitively shown in AKA Crush Syndrome to be "January 20, 2014", and they were together for a few months, meaning they cannot have realistically met any later than September 2013. In AKA Sin Bin, Kilgrave says "it was a cold, clear night" when he met Jones, meaning it could not be realistically earlier than September 2013. The reasoned date for this onscreen writing is March 25, 2015, and 18 months prior to this is September 2013, which works well for the dates both ways.
- In Kandahar, it is shown that on Frank Castle's birthday, November 15th (see 1976 references), there are "29 days" supposed to be remaining of their deployment. Therefore, they are due to finish on December 14th. In Home, when Madani questions Castle about Kandahar, she asks, "You served many years as a Marine Force Recon?" He replies, "I did." She asks, "But that isn't where you served your last mission?", and Castle affirms, "No. I was part of a covert CIA operation. It was called Cerberus." Therefore, Kandahar was Castle's final deployment. However, in Kinbaku, Ellison's statements firmly place the Massacre at Central Park on April 4, 2015 (see 2015 references), and in Penny and Dime, Castle explains that this was the day after he got back from his final deployment. It must therefore be assumed that after Castle attacked William Rawlins on November 16th, similarly to how Russo "requested a transfer back to Force", Castle either requested to move or was forced to for his damaging attack on a superior officer, and had to serve an extra few months before finishing on April 3, 2015. This therefore makes the November that the Kandahar events take place November 2014.
In Crosshairs, Frank Castle says "we did 15-month rotations in Afghanistan". Since they were due to finish on December 14, 2014, it can therefore be assumed that the deployment began around September 14, 2013. This also aligns with the fact that Castle says on November 15, 2014, "We have been doing it for a year," as it would have been 14 months.
Finally, the assassination of Ahmad Zubair takes place somewhere between the September 14, 2013 start of the operation and the November 15, 2014 abrupt ending, so it can be approximated as roughly halfway between, around the night of April 15-16, 2014.
- The Punisher: 1.03: Kandahar
- Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: 1.03: The Asset
- Luke Cage: 2.03: Wig Out
- In The Asset, the agents discuss how "this weekend, Quinn worldwide's got its annual shareholders gathering." September 21, 2013 is a Saturday, fitting with this statement.
- Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: 1.04: Eye-Spy
- Thor: Crown of Fools
- In the comic Thor: Crown of Fools, Thor mentions that the Nine Realms are still in constant chaos, meaning that the War of the Nine Realms has not ended yet. The events of this comic must happen one month before the main events of Thor: The Dark World, which starts on November 9, 2013.
- In Soul Brother #1, Luke Cage says his mother died while he was in Seagate Penitentiary, and he was told by the warden. With her last visit to him dated to July 23, 2013 (see other references), and his last day as part of the main prison being January 1, 2014 (see 2014 references), Etta's death can be approximated to the midpoint between these dates, October 12, 2013.

- Thor: The Dark World Prelude
- Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: 1.07: The Hub
- Captain Marvel
- Thor: The Dark World
- Thor: Ragnarok
- Producer Craig Kyle states that Thor has been fighting for "over a year" since The Avengers when Thor: The Dark World picks up. When Foster awaits Thor's return, a "2013" calendar can be seen behind her. Along with the real time policy, this all fits as being set in November 2013. Plus, Selvig's release papers are signed on November 14th.
- Thor: Ragnarok Prelude
- Thor: The Dark World Deleted Scene: Thor and Frigga Discuss Loki
- In Avengers: Endgame, 2013 events are shown simultaneous to the events of Thor: The Dark World. With the 2023 Thor and Rocket making no impacts of significance until just before they leave, the events of the film up to that point can be taken to play out essentially identically in that universe. Similarly, events such as Loki tossing his cup and Jane Foster being given her dress, shown only in Avengers: Endgame, are unaffected by the 2023 Thor and Rocket's actions, so can be taken to have also happened in the main universe.
- Thor: The Dark World Deleted Scene: Jane Wakes Up on Asgard
- Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: 1.08: The Well
- The events of The Well are set shortly after Thor: The Dark World. The timeline of the first half of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Season 1 has been somewhat modeled around Thor: The Dark World.
- Guardians of the Galaxy Prequel Infinite Comic
- Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: 1.09: Repairs
- Jessica Jones: 1.06: AKA You're a Winner!
- Captain America: Homecoming
- Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: 3.01: Laws of Nature
- Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: 1.10: The Bridge
- In The Bridge, Peterson makes mention that since we last saw him in Pilot, it has been his son Ace's birthday, saying, "Called him on his birthday and gave him all the "Heroes of New York" action figures." In Pilot, he says on the reasoned date of September 9, 2013 that Ace has "got a birthday coming up in a couple of months." This would put his birthday around November 19th, thus placing this episode after that.
- The Punisher: 2.01: Roadhouse Blues
- In Roadhouse Blues, Rex Quinn says "Yeah, I don't see my dad either. Haven't seen him since I was a little kid." Children start forming explicit memories at around two years old, and his father leaving likely would be one. Rex is eight years old when he says this line, so he likely wouldn't describe himself as being a "little kid" if he was older than 6. Using his second and sixth birthdays as the minimum and maximum (see 2000s references for his birthday) and taking the average, Rex's dad would leave around December 2, 2013.
- Cloak & Dagger: 1.09: Back Breaker
- Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: 1.11: The Magical Place
- In The Magical Place, Simmons states that "it's been 36 hours since Agent Coulson was taken."
- In Turn, Turn, Turn, Coulson states, "I haven't been able to get [Fury] on the line for weeks." The reasoned date for the previous contact is December 4, 2013, after his successful rescue. The reasoned date for him saying this is January 9, 2014, which fits as 5 weeks.
- In Turn, Turn, Turn, Coulson says that he was "tortured for 3 days."
- James Gunn detailed how Nathan Fillion originally had a cameo in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 as actor Simon Williams, appearing on posters for films he has appeared in, on display at a film festival. The rights to make Steve Jobs were acquired 3 days after his death, and then it took 1476 days before it was released. Assuming the rights to make Tony Stark were acquired 3 days after "I am Iron Man", so November 28, 2009, the film would have come out around December 13, 2013.
- Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
- Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: 1.12: Seeds
- In Seeds, the students are coming from having taken a test. The placement of the episodes falls nicely with the test being in the last week of term, to assess their progress that term.
- In Seeds, Fitz says to Gill, "I must say these ideas are way beyond what I was toying with in my first few months." The implication from this is that Gill is in his first few months. With the episode falling in December, this falls nicely as 3½ months into term time.
- In Seeds, it is said that "24 years ago, an entire S.H.I.E.L.D. team in a small village was massacred in attempt to secure [Skye]." With the Massacre in Hunan being in March 1989, 24 years later puts the episode at the very latest in December 2013, from the crude math of 2013-1989=24 years.
- Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: 2.03: Making Friends and Influecing People
- Captain America: The Winter Soldier Infinite Comic
- Marvel One-Shot: All Hail the King
- Marvel One-Shot: All Hail the King was released 9 months after Iron Man 3. By real time passing, this would place it around September 2013. It was released in February 2014, by real time occurrence placing it around then. The middle of these dates is November/December 2013. Marvel One-Shot: All Hail the King was released initially between Seeds and T.R.A.C.K.S., and with the placement of Seeds falling in December, it is nicely placed, by chronological release, after Seeds.
- Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: The Chase
- Seeds has to occur in 2013 ("24 years" following 1989, see other references), and is placed finishing on December 17, 2013. Yes Men has to occur in 2014 ("last year" in 2015, see other references). Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: The Chase picks up reasonably shortly following the events of Seeds, and leads into the events of T.R.A.C.K.S.. T.A.H.I.T.I. follows immediately after, and Yes Men only a few days later (Skye is still recovering, Simmons has spent a few days taking her blood). As well as this, Captain America: The Winter Soldier has to occur as early as possible in January 2014 ("entire winter" following the film's events, "a few years" and "2 years" in Captain America: Civil War, see other references). From all of this, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: The Chase, T.R.A.C.K.S., and T.A.H.I.T.I. occur at the end of December 2013 (27th-30th), with Yes Men picking up with Simmons and Skye a few days later on January 3, 2014. This also fits with them having dealt with the Overkill Device "a while back," nearly 2 months from early November to late December.
- Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: 1.14: T.A.H.I.T.I.
- In T.A.H.I.T.I., it is depicted and said that Skye was shot "yesterday."
