- 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.

- Daily Planet check for Lois Lane
- In Zack Snyder's Justice League Bruce mentions his reason for trekking to the Icelandic village: He expected Aquaman to arrive on the king tide, which was the previous night. The only king tide between Superman's death and Steppenwolf's arrival started on November 13th, which means the king tide could only have come the previous day if the present day was November 14, 2017.
