SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING Director Confirms DAMAGE CONTROL; Discusses Easter Eggs, VENOM And More

When it was revealed that Tony Stark's company would deal with super-powered battle fallout in Spider-Man: Homecoming, fans assumed this must be Damage Control, and they were on the money.

On the heels of today's new trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming, Fandango have shared their interview with the film's director, Jon Watts, and some very interesting things were discussed.

First off, Watts confirms that the Tony Stark-owned clean-up crew that butts heads with Michael Keaton's Adrian Toomes is indeed Damage Control. As you may recall, there was actually talk of a Damage Control TV series in the works at ABC a while back, and this is most likely why we haven't heard anything since.

When asked if introducing this group might open up any new possibilities for the future of The MCU, Watts replied:

"Yeah, possibly. For me, in thinking about this movie, it just fit in with our overall philosophy with the kind of story we wanted to tell. 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 also reveals that there will be plenty of easter eggs to look out for, as well as a post-credits scene - though he doesn't confirm whether we'll see him return for the inevitable sequel or not.

One upcoming project he does comment on, however, is the Venom movie we've been hearing so much about lately, confirming once and for all that there will be no connection to The MCU:

"It’s not connected to the Marvel world, so that’s really intriguing… what that will be. I don’t know anything about it. It’s not connected, so there’s not that overlap. I’m only focused on my movie right now."

Watts also comments on Tony Stark's inclusion, the John Hughes movie influence, and more. Click here to check out the interview in full. Spider-Man: Homecoming swings into theaters on July 7, 2017.
