  2. The tie-in novel Man of Steel: The Early Years: Junior Novel depicts a future event in the DCEU timeline, showing Superman many years after the events seen in the Man of Steel film. Since the scene is described as "many years after" this automatically rules out the events of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice which are set one year and 6 months later, likely set sometime after the films Justice League and Zack Snyder's Justice League which are set only two years after.
