Spider-Man: Homecoming Will Introduce Damage Control

There's typically a big mess leftover after a battle between superheroes and super-villains, and it's not like the Hulk is gonna stick around to clean it up.

In the Marvel comics, that job falls to Damage Control, a company that specializes in picking up the pieces after a major fight–and they're finally coming to the big screen. Spider-Man: Homecoming director Jon Watts confirmed to Fandango that Damage Control will make its debut in the upcoming flick.

In the movie, Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) buys the company, which drives disgruntled employee Adrian Toomes (Michael Keaton) to become the villainous Vulture. After all, he's got a lot of fragments of ultra-dangerous weapons at his disposal.

"For me, in thinking about this movie, it just fit in with our overall philosophy with the kind of story we wanted to tell," Watts said. "In the same way that Peter gives us the ground level view of what it's like to be a 15-year-old kid in a New York City that was almost destroyed by aliens before the Avengers showed up. You also wonder after all those huge messes are made, who's sent in to clean up? Is it the normal people who would be hired to do something like that? Does it become a government operation? Is it dangerous? What do you do with all the alien body parts that you find? I really like asking those practical questions about this world, and then use that to drive the story."

Watts said there's a possibility that Damage Control will return for future flicks. However, Marvel and ABC were developing a sitcom based on the fictional company last year (via IGN), but there hasn't been a lot of news about it since.

Spider-Man: Homecoming hits theaters July 7. While we wait, take a look at the new trailer.
