Or we could ignore the "2018" like we ignored the "2013" newspaper date in Iron Man 3; IF it was MCU 'canon'.The more I think about it, Venom doesn't really work in the MCU for several (albeit timeline related) reasons:
The 2018 email would indicate October 2018 - April 2019 because of it's content about the NCLA Presidential Reception (see SUoMC Timeline).
If we ignore that, the earliest it can be is January 2018 - July 2018. Sure, we could push Infinity War to late June, but that just seems ridiculous because of the Scott Lang comment Black Widow makes. July is definitely impossible.
Eddie being sceptical of aliens is fine, as that happened in Runaways too, and the only aliens that the public really knew at the time were from the Incident. Inhumans don't count.
Point being, the timeline would be hard to work around so for now I'm glad Venom is not in the MCU, at least until the timeline becomes clear in future films (Morbius, Venom 2, etc.).
October 2014 - April 2015, taking into account the NCLA Presidential Reception meeting but discounting the 2018 date. Sure, I'm good with that, although 10 years between Venom and Spider-Man 3 (presumably when a crossover would happen)? That's quite long.Or we could ignore the "2018" like we ignored the "2013" newspaper date in Iron Man 3; IF it was MCU 'canon'.
Bare in mind, Venom takes place in San Francisco, but there's no sign of Ant-Man. I'd dare say the Venom movie could fit in early 2015 since Scott Lang isn't Ant-Man yet.
And they promoted a 2015 bike (the "Ducati Scrambler") for the Venom movie.
If Eddie got dusted, you could just cut off 5 years from that time difference.October 2014 - April 2015, taking into account the NCLA Presidential Reception meeting but discounting the 2018 date.

You could also argue that Scott doesn't show up for the same reason Iron Man wasn't in every New York event, like New York earthquakes or S.H.I.E.L.D. helicarriers falling out of the sky. He's was... busy?
No point in really worrying about it yet. Not canon, completely hypothetical.
Do a vote.Going back to my earlier post: the Netflix seasons, for the most part, take place in the same order as they were released, due to character arcs and dialogue references to time.
I also determined that Daredevil S3 takes place in late 2017, because Karen still works for the New York Bulletin in LC 2x11.
The official description for Iron Fist S2 says "Danny has promised that with Matt Murdock gone, he will step up and protect his city". This, as well as dialogue from IF 2x03, seems to imply it takes place before Daredevil S3.
Does anyone think I should move Iron Fist to between Luke Cage S2 and Daredevil S3, or should I leave it as is?
I don't know where to start, so here's the timeline evidence document:I am currently taking notes on the Netflix MCU to try and place where I think everything works the best. It's kind of hard to scroll through the whole thing and see where everything is currently placed and why...would anyone be willing to give me a quick recap of how the current MCU timeline is laid out on this timeline?
Thanks for the link. I'll see if I can find any other prop dates and see whether they can work with the timeline.I might have something that could help with the Netflix shows placements.
Marvel is holding an auction for Marvel Netflix props and there's a PDF with every item, so we can have a look at the dates on them. Here's a few I found:
Frank Castle's admission date to the hospital in DD 2x06 is 07/12/2015.
In DD 3x03 Foggy has a credit card of Karen that's valid thru 05/17.
In DD 3x05, there's a notebook from Pointdexter's therapist, with dates from her sessions being March 20 and 27, April 4, 11, 18 and 25, and May 3 and 10.
In Luke Cage 2x05, Luke gets a subpoena for beating up Cockroach. I believe the date says it's in 2018 but I can't really make out the day and month. Could be 04-12. I'm not sure.
In Luke Cage 2x09 Bushmaster's arrest warrant says 06-20-2018.
In Iron Fist 1x05, Danny's credit card is valid thru 03/17. It was however issued 03/13, which is weird considering he was gone for so long.
Here's the link for those interested:
