Iron Man 3

Plot hole: How come the Extremis serum was able to regenerate Ellen Brandt's arm but not repair the scar on her face? According to the movie, the serum is supposed to rewrite the body's genetic code and constantly repair damaged cells, so her face should have been restored to its original state, just like her missing arm. Even if she had been born with the scar the serum would have healed it, just like it healed all of Aldrich Killian's physical impairments. (00:51:40)

Character mistake: When Harley asks Tony what the light is coming from his chest, Tony responds "an electromagnet." Harley replies "What does it power?" An electromagnet is not a source of power. The arc reactor is the power source which powers both the electromagnet (to keep Tony safe from the shrapnel near his heart) and the Iron Man suit. (00:43:25)

Answer: With the release of Endgame, it is now fact that the Battle of New York took place in 2012.

Chosen answer: Iron Man 3 is set in December 2013, but at no point in The Avengers that I can recall was it ever stated to be 2012; that's just the year it came out, not necessarily the year it was set, so in-film continuity would suggest the Avengers is set in 2013.
