I'm sure the bookends are "present day".
just saw the movie, it seems like this would easily slide in soon before black adam on the timeline with Billy’s 18th birthday being in 5 months, however Sivana saying it’s been 2 years makes me question things; this could be chalked up to this scene being in 2020 with mister mind’s planning coming to a head around 2022/2023 in a potential shazam 3 or sivana didnt keep track of his days correctly lol//i would place the first post credits soon following black adam explaining Billy’s lack of appearance in that film
Notice also in that scene when Freddy is about to call 911 on Billy (as Shazam) the time says "11:30 PM" on his phoneCurrently re-watching Shazam! and noticed the events from December 9th-10th should be spread out a little more. I think the assumption is the montage takes place over the 9th and 10th (dates from Freddy's YouTube) but Freddy changes shirts a few times within the montage scenes and once again when they visit the realtor (also included as being on the 10th).
I also noticed the December 8th date is contradictory to the kids being in school since it falls on a Saturday. I guess we can assume the DCEU doesn't line up with real-world days of the week. However, my personal fix is having the events currently listed as the 8th as being on Friday the 7th. When Freddy says it's "December 8th", a clock can be seen that shows 12:10. Meaning it's the early hours of a new day and a majority of the scenes before set on the 8th are actually the 7th, which aligns with the kids going to school (now Friday). Also later this same night Freddy talks about every criminal either being on drugs or asleep, fitting with it being after midnight.
So with my fix, I'm looking at:
December 6th (Thursday) Billy looks for his mom and is taken in by the Vasquez family.
December 7th (Friday) The kids attend school, Billy gets his powers, and Billy and Freddy test out potential abilities.
December 8th (Saturday)- Shortly after midnight Billy and Freddy try to get beer and stop a robbery, they visit the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and they sneak back into the Vasquez home.
December 9th (Sunday)- Billy and Freddy begin practicing Billy's powers in the warehouse. Freddy begins to upload his videos on YouTube.
December 10th (Monday)- Sivana kills the board members, Billy and Freddy sneak out of school to continue practicing Billy's powers at the warehouse, Billy tries to leap a building and crashes into it, Billy zaps a Dr. Pepper machine. Freddy uploads more videos on YouTube.
December 11th (Tuesday)- Billy and Freddy are at the mall where Billy charges people's phones and Billy zaps an ATM. Freddy is wearing a different shirt (Wonder Woman logo).
December 12th (Wednesday)- Billy goes to a strip club and he and Freddy play Mortal Kombat. Freddy is wearing a different shirt (Aquaman logo).
December 13th (Thursday)- Billy and Freddy visit a relator and attend school after. Freddy is wearing a different shirt (an Atlantis Lifeguard shirt).
December 14th (Friday)- The events that are currently listed as falling on the 11th. It makes sense to have a Winter Carnival fall on a weekend too.
December 15th (Saturday)- The events that are currently listed as falling on the 12th.
December 17th (Monday)- Billy and Superman eat lunch with Freddy.
Here's the thing tho: I'm seeing February 29th, but I'm also seeing April 1st for Billy's birthday.Awesome, did not know that, so that places this film in september 2021 if that’s the case
Watched Shazam 2, there's a May 29th date on Freddy's phone (once again, thanks Freddy!). May 28th to the 31st is my best estimation, taking into account the time span in which the events of the film take place.I’ve also seen November for his birthday lmao so maybe we can find a way to narrow that down first, within the dceu i mean
I would say 2021. With the post credits scene from the 1st one being January 2019.perfect so that places Billy’s actual birthday in October
from this we can extrapolate that the post-credits 1 is nov 2022 or later following the events of Black Adam
There's no date in the film so between Peacemaker and Shazam 2 I would guess.So when does Black Adam take place?
Ok so it's def. before Shazam 2 correct?There's no date in the film so between Peacemaker and Shazam 2 I would guess.
Yes. Because of one of the post credits scenes.Ok so it's def. before Shazam 2 correct?
I noticed you have Aquaman 2 before The Flash. Was this officially confirmed or something?Yes. Because of one of the post credits scenes.
