Fury of the Gods, when Freddy Freeman shows Anthea an image of the Shazam Family, the date "Monday, May 29" is seen on the cell phone, positioning the events of the film around this date. Mary Bromfield tells Batson, "You turn 18 in five months," putting his birthday around October. In Shazam!, in December 2018 (see 2018 references), Batson is stated to be "14," placing his date of birth in October 2004. This would mean Batson would turn 18 in October 2022, suggesting Fury of the Gods occurs in May 2022. Additionally, during the post-credits scene, Thaddeus Sivana states that he is "57." Shazam!: The Junior Novel establishes that Sivana was nine years old on December 25, 1974, suggesting he was born in 1965, therefore meaning he would turn 57 in 2022, aligning with a May 2022 setting. Finally, a newspaper shown in the film is dated April 10, 2022, cementing that the events of the film occur after this point.
  7. In the Shazam! Fury of the Gods mid-credits scene, Harcourt says "we've seen you in action", implying the Battle of Philadelphia has occurred recently, at least less than a week. With the battle dated to May 30, 2022 (see other references), the mid-credits scene can be dated to approximately June 5, 2022.

  12. 12.0 12.1 In The Flash, the birth date "September 21st" can be read on the baby stretchers at the Martha Wayne Institute. According to the DC Multiverse figure description of the alternate Flash from 2013, the main version of Flash comes from 2022, positioning the events of the film in that year. The Chase of Al Falcone occurs at 9 a.m., while the stretchers mention that the babies were born at 12:15 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., so the events are after September 21, as newborn babies do not usually spend more than 48 hours in the hospital, it is estimated that the events of the film occur around of September 23.
