  6. Andrew Garner's beard in Maveth seems to indicate that he has been under HYDRA custody for around a month, depending on how fast his beard grows. The timeline works out as December 13, 2015 to January 31, 2016, which works sufficiently.
  7. In BOOM, Phil Coulson says, "I've followed my worst instincts at times. Last year. Loss will make you do that. It feels good in the moment, but it never ends well. I've lost my temper. I've killed." He is referring to murdering Ward, and refers to it as "last year". He says this on April 27, 2017, referring to January 31, 2016, which fits the statement.

  9. 9.0 9.1 In Bouncing Back, it is shown that Campbell's death in Ascension is "3 months from now". The timeline lines up that Bouncing Back begins on March 15th, and Campbell dies on June 29th, which fits well as 3 months later.
  10. 10.0 10.1 10.2 10.3 In The Inside Man, Malick tells Hive, "I made some moves this week to ensure we have all the Inhumans we need when the time comes." This implies the kidnapping of Lucio was within the last week. Malick also needed to make a deal with the Watchdogs a few weeks before Watchdogs, and it would make sense for this to be included under this statement as well.

  14. In Parting Shot, the Russians skeptically say to Hunter and Morse, "In the woods of Siberia in the dead of winter." While "dead of winter" implies January/February-time, March fits better with the timeline (the date being March 21st), and still fits this statement on the whole: the winter months in Siberia are December to March, with March still being very cold, albeit starting to slowly get a little warmer.

This is referring to the fact that the last one died, presumably only a few days earlier. This is coupled with the onscreen text saying ""HYDRA eradicated" says Ellis Administration", implying that the Destruction of HYDRA was the night before. Working back, this would place the Transia massacre on the 24th, 4 days before the announcement of the new CEO, which fits perfectly as well.

  28. 28.0 28.1 28.2 28.3 28.4 The events of Emancipation are set shortly after the climax of Captain America: Civil War, which is set on June 25th (see other references), but The Singularity is set on April 27th-28th. In Failed Experiments, Campbell states that "it's been days" since he took the antidote. The reasoned date for him saying this is June 26th (one day after Rogers and Barnes go missing), and so Failed Experiments is reasoned to be dated as June 21st. There is also the necessity of 3 months to pass between Bouncing Back and Ascension. All these things create a necessary time gap of nearly two months between The Singularity and Failed Experiments, in which Radcliffe works on improving the experiment, and S.H.I.E.L.D. search for Hive and Johnson from satellite imagery.
  29. In BOOM, Radcliffe tells the Superior, "Pure Terrigen crystals. I picked up some samples last year when I was working for a previous benefactor. His goals were, well, the complete opposite of yours." He is referring to Hive, and his plan to increase the number of Inhumans, rather than kill them. He says this on April 27, 2017, referring to April-June 2016, which fits the statement of "last year".
  30. Scott Derrickson says that Doctor Strange spans one year. While he goes on to explain that he thinks the film spans from one year's fall to the next year's fall, this does not work with other timeline evidence, not lining up with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Season 4 at all, and not particularly working with WHiH either. Derrickson goes on to say, "Don't hold me to this, because I haven't thought about this in a long time," allowing for leniency to make the timeline work. To fit with WHiH and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., while also working with the depicted weather (see other references), the film spans 10 months - close to a year, but from May 2016 to March 2017.

  32. 32.0 32.1 32.2 WHiH Newsfront refers to Stephen Strange as a top NYC surgeon in a May 2nd post and May 3rd video. This indicates that Strange has not yet had his car accident. Strange is giving an interview on new innovative life-saving techniques as well, which seems to be the same techniques which appear in the beginning of the movie. Palmer also talks to him about all his press and recent interviews early on, of which this WHiH interview could well be one of the interviews she is referring to. All of this indicates that the opening takes place shortly after the WHiH coverage of May 2nd and 3rd.

  36. 36.0 36.1 36.2 36.3 In the Spider-Man: Homecoming Prelude, it is shown that Spider-Man preventing the car accident (also seen in YouTube footage in Captain America: Civil War), the Attack on the IFID Headquarters, and Stark's MIT speech are all on the same day. Because of WHiH (see other references), we know this day to be May 3, 2016.
  37. 37.0 37.1 37.2 37.3 As Rogers watches TV, the Attack on the IFID Headquarters is stated to be "last month". The Spider-Man: Homecoming Prelude also states that the Bombing of the Vienna International Centre is "one month later", after Lagos. WHiH gave the timeline date for the Lagos incident as May 3, 2016 (see other references), putting the rest of the events of Captain America: Civil War in June. However, in Spider-Man: Homecoming, it jumps forward to "two months later," to the firm date of September 8, 2016. Assuming the 2 is rounded, this still works with June so long as it is very late June. It has to be as late as possible in June, but before schools broke up in New York on June 28th (1, 2), as Parker gets home from school and still has homework to do. In Spider-Man: Homecoming, Stark says that he took Parker for the "weekend," therefore making the date he picks up Parker Friday 24th June, and when he returns him the very early hours of Monday 27th June. These are the only dates which fit ras being a weekend, before schools break up, a rounded 2 months before September 8th, and still the month following the May 3, 2016 Lagos incident, as well as a loose (May to June) "one month" after the incident, thus placing Captain America: Civil War firmly around these dates.

  39. 39.0 39.1 39.2 39.3 The WHiH Newsfront campaign posted videos and Twitter posts relating to the Attack on the IFID Headquarters, an event depicted in Captain America: Civil War, stating it to be on May 3, 2016.
  40. 40.0 40.1 40.2 Scott Derrickson says that Stephen Strange recovered for "about 3 to 6 months". The timeline uses a little over 4 months, as roughly the midpoint of this statement. This also works for having the evening when Strange loses his temper at Palmer be September, working well with the rainy weather.

  42. Ignoring the issue of the "8" not matching the timeline at all, this scene is shown to be before Captain America: Civil War, x years after the day following the Battle of New York. 4 (the number which fits all the other timeline evidence) years after May 5, 2012, would put this around May 24, 2016.
  43. 43.0 43.1 43.2 Thaddeus Ross says that the signing of the Accords in Vienna is set to happen "three days from now", on the day of his meeting with the Avengers, which is dated as June 20th. This places the Bombing of the Vienna International Centre on June 23rd.
  44. 44.0 44.1 In Captain America: Civil War, Stark says that Spencer decided to "spend his summer" in Sokovia, making May 2015 the earliest possible timeframe for Avengers: Age of Ultron. Zemo says he has spent "over a year" planning his revenge. This is on June 25, 2016, so the Battle of Sokovia being on May 6, 2015 works.

  49. In Captain America: Civil War, Parker tells Stark, "I've had these powers for 6 months." The date of him saying this is reasoned as June 24, 2016. The ending of Ant-Man is set shortly after he becomes Spider-Man. To appease both, the "6 months" is stretched to be as early as possible and still fit, in early December, with him being bitten on December 1, 2015, and there is a time jump of 4 months between Lang and van Dyne's kiss and Wilson looking for Lang.
  50. In Captain America: Civil War, Parker is coming home from school when he encounters Stark. When he returns home 48 hours later in Homecoming, Stark says he has been gone for the "weekend". His encounter with Stark is dated as June 24th, a Friday, with his return being the very early hours of Monday June 27th.

  52. In Emancipation, when Coulson reads the papers reporting on Carter's death, they state that she died aged 95. Her date of birth was April 9, 1921, definitively placing her passing between April 9, 2016, and April 8, 2017. Her date of death on the timeline is June 19, 2016, which fits this statement.

  56. 56.0 56.1 In Ascension, the scene with Quake's escape is shown as "6 months later", after Lincoln Campbell's death. Campbell's death is dated as June 29th, and the escape is December 15th, which fits this statement.

These numerous happenings are added to the timeline in the appropriate places, and the subsequent mentions that there were also incidents in Sunbury and Baltimore are slotted in at the right points as well.
  58. In Spider-Man: Homecoming, on the reasoned date of September 20, 2016, Tony Stark mentions that Parker quit band "6 weeks ago". Exactly 6 weeks prior would be August 9th, while the middle of that week (taking into consideration a general "weeks ago" statement) would be August 11th. Overall, it is reasoned as August 10th.

It is said in Vendetta that "Coulson had just stepped down" in the scene in which we see him heading off to board the Zephyr for the beginning of the six-month span. Due to the April 17, 2017 date in Wake Up, The Ghost ideally picks up in March 2017 (see other references). Working back from this, the events of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Slingshot, and the first boarding of the Zephyr, is in September 2016. This works with Slingshot, as it picks up just before Broken Promises on April 13, 2017 (see other references), it then flashes back to the Baltimore incident, referring to it as "Several months ago". With the Baltimore event on September 30, 2016, this is 7 months prior. It is dated as late September - September 30, 2016, to allow time for Mace being selected for, and then go through Project Patriot, but still fit with Mace's statement in The Patriot, "Few months [after Vienna], Talbot came to me with an offer." This still fits, with the bombing being on June 23rd, and his selection being September 8th, 2½ months later. It is implied that Mackenzie and Coulson began testing the limits of the Zephyr, to go for weeks and weeks on a thorough hunt for Johnson, and that the director wanted to keep Coulson's Team apart after he took over, as the duo get to only see their friends every few weeks when coming back for restock. They get back after their last trip of 6 weeks (their furthest yet, impressing Fitz), and Fitz and Simmons are excited to see them, with Fitz exclaiming, "Six weeks. That's a record!" Coulson at this point has indeed spent 6 months with Mackenzie living mostly on the plane - September 30, 2016 to March 18, 2017.

What is implied to be the following school day, therefore Monday, is when Parker puts the tracker on Toomes' men. The next day (as Parker has to rush, he has not had another day to ask), Parker rejoins the decathlon team as they leave, the day before the competition. A poster early in the film says that the decathlon will be on October 13-15, and at that point Mr. Harrington also asks if Parker cannot spare one weekend for it. However, later, another poster is more clearly shown with the date of September 14th, which makes more sense with all the other evidence and is more prominent and presumably newer, therefore this is the date for it, and the weekend mention is no longer valid as the date must have been changed since then. However, when they get back into school, the Washington incident is referred to on the Midtown High TV news as having happened "this weekend". There is an internal inconsistency here, as at least 2 days after the incident, Parker refers to Toomes' party as "last Friday", but it cannot be "last Friday" if there has been at least another school day + a "weekend" since the party, as well as the fact that the men coming to find the Chitauri object cannot realistically be more than the first school day after the party, and Parker rejoining the group cannot be realistically more than the day after that. With the September 14th date, which is a Wednesday, this all lines up much better as the film starting on Thursday 8th, the party being Friday 9th, Toomes' men coming on Monday 12th, Parker rejoining the group on Tuesday 13th, and then the incident on the 14th. It can be assumed that following the incident, Parker's classmates spent another day or so in Washington, D.C., and/or were not in on Friday to allow them to recover, and so they are returning on Monday, victorious, and the school news incorrectly reports it as having happened at "the weekend" - besides, they are presented as unreliable newsreaders. It has to be assumed either way that the "last Friday" is simply a Monday referring to "not the Friday just been, but last Friday". This would then be the Monday, September 19th, putting the Skirmish on the Staten Island Ferry on the 20th, and the homecoming dance on Friday 23rd, which fits perfectly with this ticket prop an extra posted a photo of, and matching tickets officially on display at an event in Japan. While Happy Hogan says on the 8th that he has to clear out Avengers Tower by next week, it can be assumed that he had to clear it by the Sunday ahead of some other business, before the actual moving the following Friday.

It is generally accepted as such, though unconfirmed. Spider-Man: Homecoming is shown to be "2 months later" following Parker returning home, and is clearly set in September, putting it beginning in early September 2016, a rounded 2 months after late June. The fact that Aaron Davis' date of birth is shown as April 1984 and he is said to be "33" also has to be overlooked as a minor, common error due to the staggering evidence that Captain America: Civil War cannot occur later than 2016.

  66. In both Deals With Our Devils (set on April 5, 2017), and Broken Promises (set on April 13, 2017), it is said that Vijay Nadeer has been in his Terrigenesis cocoon for "7 months". Working back from the midpoint of these dates (April 9, 2017), 7 months earlier is September 11, 2016.
  67. 67.0 67.1 67.2 Doctor Strange Deleted Scenes
  68. Mads Mikkelsen says that Strange trains for about 9 months before his fight with Kaecilius. However, due to the rainy weather when Strange falls out with Palmer, that scene is dated as September, but there is snow during the Ancient One's death scene, meaning it cannot be later than early March, especially with the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Season 4 timeline. Because of this, Strange trains for 6 months.
