Hi ProBot, one question, chapter 16 is placed on October 21st for a particular reason? I cannot find a date.

In Harry's apartment, the newspaper "Reward! For Photos of Spider-Man" has a Monday October 21st, 2001 date. Obviously, we can ignore the 2001 as a printing error.

I might go with it. The thing is that Peter has been failing to go to Connors' classes for the past 6th weeks. We know he has classes with him at least one time a week, and per the comic of SM2 we know the classes are usually on Monday.

And the Columbia University began classes around August 24-26 2002 (based off other calendar years), so 6-7 from there could take us to mid October 2002 when Peter sees the article. Or maybe I could treat it as 8 weeks.

Plus, the novelization says that Norman being fired happened the same day of the World Unity Festival.

I remember a while ago I was inspecting the dates on the newspapers throughout the movie, and I believe I found that all of them read the same date of October 21.

Yes. All of them have an October 21st date . Given that the first time we see the date is during the apartment scene, it should be used for that scene only.

Spider-Man 2 is more varied, it has Sunday, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday newspapers.
