I think an August 2018 date is at least consistent within the context of the season--there was no indication in the show that the magazine cover was the latest issue. It really just boils down to whether we're taking seriously the out-of-universe assertion that all current Marvel TV shows are taking place before Infinity War, in which case the prop dates can be safely ignored. It seems kind of obvious that
the next Avengers movie will reset the timeline/universe to some degree so that at the very least Thanos's snap never occurs, so once that happens we won't have to worry about Luke Cage's dates contradicting Infinity War any more than we do the negated Quake-destroys-the-world timelines in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. or whatever is happening in future LA in Runaways.

We do have 2-3 more Netflix seasons premiering before Avengers 4 even comes out, all of which probably take place after this season, so assuming Luke Cage S2 occurs in close proximity to/in the same timeline with Infinity War is going to be problematic no matter what.

Jeph Loeb still said
all the shows take place before the snap.

I'm personally sticking with August 2017.

Yeah... it’s like the only one to do that. And Infinity War is basically the only movie to affect the shows, so they screwed up.

I haven’t had time to start so I have very little actual input, but prop dates aside, have there been any verbal time reference to season 1 or Defenders? Or even Jessica Jones season 2?
No, nothing specific so far (I’m on episode 10).

And putting LC Season 2 in April, 2018 could work if we assume a longer period of time between Thor Ragnarok’s ending and mid credit scene, and aligning Infinity War around its release in May, 2018 (which based on the weather in the New York scenes it certainly indicates.

Of course, Agents of SHIELD is a problem, as it’s timeline stretches only to January, maybe February, 2018 if you really stretch it, which would place IW in Jan/Feb (though that doesn’t really align with IW’s spring like weather).

I dunno. It’s a big continuity screw up.

Seriously, Marvel, if you need someone to coordinate with prop department and timeline mentions for TV and films, I’m available. ;)

MAJOR ANT-MAN AND THE WASP SPOILERS:

After the first screenings last night, some info has come out about the post-credits scene for AMaTW: apparently, Hank, Janet, and Hope all vanish from Thanos' snap at the end of Infinity War. So the film either all takes place pretty close/at the same time as Infinity War, or there's a time jump between the main film and the post-credits scene.
Ah, cool! Yeah, either one is a possibility. We’ll have to see it the post credit scene itself indicates if it’s recently or immediately after the main A&tW film. It’s presukably at least a few days, unless A&tW makes direct mention of events in Infinity War, which I doubt as that probably would’ve been mentioned. Presumably, since it’s confirmed he’s been on house arrest for two years, and with Civil War set in April, 2016, and his escape from the Raft thanks to Cap also occurred in April, 2016, he was apparently only on the run for a month or so before being recaptured or turning himself in, around May, 2016 to meet the two year mark (especially if A&tW is set just before Infinity War).

I’m wondering if I should mark all TV episodes set in that period after the reset as a new timeline, at least until the point of Avengers 4...

I dunno, we’ll see.

I still think it’s best to place the show in April, 2018, as that’s really the EARLIEST it can happen if we take the magazine date at face value. And I prefer to take that over the bank account next statement date of September (placing it in August) just for now. If it ends up being otherwise I’ll place it in August, 2018, as I do think you’re right about the TV shows occurring in a post Avengers 4 “fixed” timeline universe, but we’ll see how Daredevil Season 3 and Iron Fist Season 2 approach their timelines. That is the most likely approach I’ll take. This way it still allows for it to be pre-Infinity War. Either April or August would support the warm, sunny weather shown through Episode 10.

Yep. In Episode 10 at around the 13:08 mark, Misty mentions today is the West Indian Parade (held on Labor Day), which is September 3 (in 2018).

So, August to September does seem the best placement, especially as we now have a specific date to work from.

I'll just mark the entries on this "fixed" timeline.

Yeah I know, so if necessary (if evidence points to pre-July 2017) it can be passed off as the guy using "Bend the knee" as just something Daenerys might say, and then it happens to be that some time later, Season 7 airs, and she use the phrase repeatedly and it becomes a quote attributed to her.

But the intention of the line is a reference to Season 7. Just like how he says "Dracarys", he's talking about things Daenerys says, referring to "Bend the knee", which was a recurring plot point in Season 7. So ideally, it would be after July 30, 2017.
Ah. My mistake, do not watch Game of Thrones and had no idea it was even a phrase on that show until you said something.

The extremely realistic detail in the decapitated heads hit me like a brick.
Thanks Disney! Glad to know the same company behind Sofia the First is okay with scenes like that and the (pointless) assault scene in the Cloak & Dagger pilot (which was a carbon copy of what happened in the Runaways pilot.)

If you're still planning on having Luke Cage season 2 in 2018, you forgot to add (New Timeline) next to Luke Cage 2x10: "The Main Ingredient, under September 2, 2018.

Not really sure if you'd also like to add (New Timeline) next to Luke Cage - "More than an arm. It's a chance to get back to work." (Link) as well.

Also:

Yep. In Episode 10 at around the 13:08 mark, Misty mentions today is the West Indian Parade (held on Labor Day), which is September 3 (in 2018).
You listed Luke Cage 2x10 under September 2, rather than on September 3. So you'd have to move the events of the show one day forward.

Yeah...I'm still sticking with August-September 2017. The "8" can be ignored per prop confusion during filming dates. That Game of Thrones reference wouldn't be as timely if quipped a year after it aired in-universe.
If the other shows end up following suit as LC Season 2 its unavoidable. If not, I'll probably move it to 2017. Its just a matter of how the other shows play out and how Avengers 4 approaches the problem (ie whether the time travel rumors are true or not).

But mostly because of what Loeb said about the shows' timeline.

Also, I'm on 2x05 now. That museum scene towards the end was haunting as...heck.
The extremely realistic detail in the decapitated heads hit me like a brick.
Thanks Disney! Glad to know the same company behind Sofia the First is okay with scenes like that and the (pointless) assault scene in the Cloak & Dagger pilot (which was a carbon copy of what happened in the Runaways pilot.)
You realize Disney doesn't only do family friendly fare, right? I mean, they produce A LOT of adult oriented stuff through their other sub studios. They used to own Miramax which produced and distributed all of Tarantino's films.

Also, I'm not sure why they shouldn't take a more realistic and gritty approach, given thats been made clear from the start of these Netflix Marvel shows that thats the road they'd be taking...

Has anyone else heard this? From someone on Quora:

"Winter Soldier (CA 2) [Chris Evans went on record, during filming, saying that chronologically, the events of Winder Soldier take place after Avengers, and before IM3]Iron Man 3 [based on the description that there is no SHIELD presence in the film]"
No. Either way it doesn't make sense given the established timelines of the two films, most especially after the recent art books featuring chronology and timeline of the MCU definitively place IM3 as occurring in December, 2012 (not 2013 like the prop newspaper date showed, this would be a case of dialogue overriding the props).

I haven't watched Cloak and Dagger or Luke Cage Season 2 yet, but I saw this mentioned on Reddit and thought it interesting:

https://www.reddit.com/r/marvelstudios/comments/8tdk3b/cloak_and_dagger_reference_in_luke_cage_2x08/
Nice. Course it kind of creates timeline problem given C&D occurs years before LC Season 2, based on the dates shown in each show, and it'd be odd if she's mentioning that years after... course it could be someone else entirely named O'Reilly. There's wiggle room either way.

If you're still planning on having Luke Cage season 2 in 2018, you forgot to add (New Timeline) next to Luke Cage 2x10: "The Main Ingredient, under September 2, 2018.

Not really sure if you'd also like to add (New Timeline) next to Luke Cage - "More than an arm. It's a chance to get back to work." (Link) as well.

Thanks, fixed for that. Admittedly I was exhausted toward end after marathoning the show over two days.

I haven't watched Cloak and Dagger or Luke Cage Season 2 yet, but I saw this mentioned on Reddit and thought it interesting:

https://www.reddit.com/r/marvelstudios/comments/8tdk3b/cloak_and_dagger_reference_in_luke_cage_2x08/
Oh wow, that is awesome! When they mentioned O'Reilly was a former New York cop I thought that was a great opportunity for a tie-in, but I never thought they'd actually do it. I hope they keep these little references up.

EDIT: Also, Callahan was the name used for O'Reilly's character in the Cloak & Dagger casting breakdown, apparently, so they must have really wanted to reference C&D here. So cool.

Jeph Loeb still said
all the shows take place before the snap.

I'm personally sticking with August 2017.
Yeah, I’m team 2017 too. Either way they’re doing the same thing Jessica Jones season 2 did. Treat Defenders and season 1 like neither one was that long ago. Misty’s arm and the impact of Cottonmouth’s death still being treated as fresh.

I’m sure IF and Daredevil will give us a better idea of how long has passed since Defenders. We’ll see.

Extremely minor Ant-Man and the Wasp spoilers regarding timeline placement

Ant-Man and the Wasp picks up in real time after the events of Captain America: Civil War, with Scott close to completing the two years of house arrest that were part of his deal to get out of prison after violating the Sokovia Accords by helping Steve Rogers. However, days before his house arrest is up, Scott reconnects with his former associates

Read something about the latest Cloak & Dagger episode mentioning Harlem and the cop lady's connection to it.

I don't watch the show anymore, but the article said something her moving to New Orleans being recent.

The mention of it in Cloak and Dagger didn't mention a time frame, just that the officer moved from Harlem to New Orleans at some point. The mention of it in Luke Cage mentions that she moved recently. Either way, the timing creates problems.

Also worth mentioning: Tandy mentions the incident with the tanker happened when she "was 9." Not sure what that does for the placement of the show on the timeline.

That'd make her 17, which works.

They don't mention it being recent, least not in Cloak & Dagger 1x05, but she did mention doing drug busts in Harlem so its confirmed its the same O'Reilly mentioned in Luke Cage Season 2.

For now I'm going to treat the "recently" as a severe over estimation, given theres a 2-3 year time difference (depending on if LC is set in 2017 or 2018).

Cloak and Dagger episode 5 has some useful timeline indicators: O'Reilly is seen looking at narcotics arrest files that she describes as being from "about eight years ago", and the files on screen are from 2010-2011. (The last file she looks at is from 2-22-2011.) Peter Scarborough's faux-Wikipedia page places the rig explosion in 2009. Looking back at the previous discussion on the Cloak and Dagger timeline, it seems like the 2007 date on the security camera footage from the pilot, while the clearest on screen date, is the outlier here--it's looking more like a 2018 date is a safer bet.

I hadn't noticed that. I'm hoping someone asks the showrunners directly about the intended timeline. Maybe the original intention was to set it in 2015 or so when Pilot episode was filmed, but when rest of series began filming they retconned it?

I'm going to wait and see how the rest of the season plays out, and if worse comes to worse we can assume the camera date is wrong, but that also means discrediting the specific April dates for it as well (unless we're to presume only the year is wrong while date is correct, which is unlikely).

Also, what proof is there placing the rig explosion in 2009?
