  6. 6.0 6.1 Man of Steel spans some time from beginning to end. During the scenes in the Arctic, Lois' camera says "11/28/2013". The Black Zero Event then occurs a little after this, and then Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice shows that "18 months later", Kryptonite is found. Later in the film, Bruce says, during the main events, "The first sample [of Kryptonite] big enough to mean something turned up in the Indian Ocean 3 months ago." This therefore takes the film to approximately fall 2015. In the film, it is shown that Lex Luthor's party will be on "November 1st", suggesting it is November 1, 2015. This matches the fact that Superman flies off that evening to save someone during Día de Muertos celebrations, which would have started on the night of November 1–2, 2015. Later, it is shown on Diana's computer that it is "11:29pm" on "November 12th". This matches as November 12, 2015.

  26. 26.0 26.1 Despite not confirmed, it is implied that the earthquake shown in a flashback of "Lights Out" could be the 2014 South Napa earthquake, which occurred in California between Superman's revelation (December 2013) and Superman's death (November 2015).

  28. In Suicide Squad, set in June–August 2016, it is shown that Floyd Lawton was arrested one recent Christmas-time. It is also shown that Zoe, Floyd's daughter, wrote one of many letters to him in his imprisonment on "07 SEPT 2014". This means the latest December Floyd can have been arrested in is December 2013. It cannot realistically be any earlier than this, due to Zoe looking the same as she does in 2016, and it being implied to be recent.

  30. The comic presumably takes place during September 2014. Jacob Washington's teacher claims that her students read Clark Kent's articles by "months" and Lucas starts his school year on the same day. Despite it's confirmed that the day is a Friday, it isn't revealed which one: it could be the third one (19th), due to Jacob's school year being started by enough time.
