  8. 8.0 8.1 8.2 8.3 8.4 8.5 8.6 8.7 8.8 8.9 In Suicide Squad, all of Waller's files in the opening scene bear the date "Jun 15, 2016". It can be taken that this is when Waller is meeting to propose Task Force X, it is June 15, 2016 or a little later. This fits with it being several months after Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which is set in November 2015. There is then a small time gap, and the rest of the film picks up. When Enchantress breaks free, Waller's phone shows "Friday, Aug 5". August 5th was a Friday in 2016 - the same day the film was released. Later in the film, Rick Flag says Enchantress broke free "3 days ago", making it August 8, 2016.

  10. 10.0 10.1 The present day scenes of Wonder Woman take place between the events of Suicide Squad, dated to summer 2016, and Justice League, dated to January 2017. The film is therefore placed approximately in fall 2016.
