The following story contains MILD spoilers for Jon Watts' Spider-Man: Homecoming. If you really want to go in pure, hop over to one of our other stories.
We have reported, earlier on the site, that Adrian Toomes (Michael Keaton), aka The Vulture, has a bone to pick with Tony Stark after the billionaire playboy philanthropist creates Damage Control and cuts Toomes out of the salvaging and clean-up business, thereby costing the businessman a lucrative gig. What you might not have known is that Toomes and his crew -- as we will see in the opening scene of Spider-Man: Homecoming -- were cleaning up Chitauri alien tech after the Battle of Manhattan from the tail end of The Avengers, and they will end up using some of this stolen tech to create their villainous suits and weapons.
I learned this on the Atlanta set of Spider-Man: Homecoming, where co-producer Eric Hauserman Carroll walked us through the entire movie and told us that Toomes -- in an effort to get back at Tony Stark -- starts stealing Chitauri tech from Damage Control, then using it to build and enhance his Vulture suit. Carroll explains:
Not only is Toomes and his crew using Chitauri alien tech obtained after the Battle of Manhattan in The Avengers, we learned that the weapons utilized by The Shocker (Bokeem Woodbine) will come from yet ANOTHER previous Marvel Cinematic Universe chapter, as Eric Hauserman Carroll tells us:
There you have it. The Vulture and his crew, which will include The Shocker, are using equipment scavenged from previous Marvel battle in movies like The Avengers and Captain America: Civil War to fashion their own tools into weapons. We also see them using it to rob banks, and blow up... something. See one of those creations here:
