Damage Control is one of those Marvel TV properties that sort of just fizzled a few months after it announced to be developed. Fans adored the possibility of a The Office-type Marvel sitcom about a cleaning crew tasked to deal with whatever mess our favorite superheroes leave behind so you bet they were disappointed when it was never heard of again, until now. As we gear up for the Spider-Man: Homecoming panel later today, some exclusive news from USAToday broke about the origins of Michael Keaton‘s Vulture.
Fourteen previous Marvel films have seen a number of huge superhero battles leave a ton of destruction in their wake, and Adrian Toomes (Keaton) is a blue-collar sort who runs a New York salvaging company that cleans up after these messes. However, he becomes irked when after one altercation, a new government organization, founded by A-list businessman Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), steps in to take over.
Now I don’t if you all remember this but a few months ago, we ran a speculation piece about the possibility of Damage Control debuting in Spider-Man: Homecoming based on a couple of convincing set photos. Well, based on those official details about a government-sanctioned clean-up crew being the catalyst for the film’s conflict, it definitely feels like it’s a real thing that’s going to happen. Not only does it seem like Damage Control will debut in Spider-Man: Homecoming, it also seems that the Vulture will be somewhat involved in its introduction, an ingenious way of exploring the grounded side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and letting audiences know that such an IP exists. Maybe this could finally lead to the TV show like Phase 1 did for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
