However, the fact that it takes place when it does kind of scrambles up my MCU timeline I've been working on.

Well, the newspaper said Monday, December 23, 2013.
The 23rd of December falls on a Monday this year too.

We don't even know what year The Avengers took place. Either Spring 2011, 2012, or 2013.
If 2013, k, a couple of months.
If 2012, gives more time for Tony to develop and punch out the 35 new suits, but it kinda hinders the PTSD.

I think it now goes like this:

2011
Iron Man

2012
Fury's Big Week
Iron Man 2
Thor
The Incredible Hulk

2013
The Avengers
Iron Man 3

This is if you want the film to be set a couple months after The Avengers.
