Iron Man 3 (2013)

Question: Is this movie set in December 2012, six months after the events of The Avengers movie, or December 2013? The newspaper handed to Tony in the garage is dated December 24, 2013.

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.
