The Vulture, played by Michael Keaton, will be much different in "Spider-Man Homecoming" than the character's comic book counterpart. In the comics, Adrian Toomes is a feeble old man with a winged suit.

In the movie, Keaton will play a working-class average joe who runs a salvage company in New York. Keaton and his crew make their money cleaning up the messes from superhero battles. However, his company gets put out of business when Tony Stark is awarded a new government contract for his own clean-up group called Damage Control.

Vulture is a blue-collar worker

When Toomes has his business threatened he feels slighted and takes his anger out on Tony Stark. It's the 99% vs. the 1%. "Spider-Man Homecoming" will feature an interesting parallel with what is happening in today's society in regard to corporate greed and income inequality. Toomes and his employees form a group of super villains, and they develop illegal weapons with the technology they find during their salvage operations.

Keaton will play the Vulture, which is fitting since he will be using scraps to carry out his revenge.

Along with Keaton, there will be Bokeem Woodbine, who is playing Shocker, and Michael Chernus, who is playing Tinkerer. Having these villains be blue-collar Americans who suddenly lose their jobs will make them relatable.

Damage Control enters the MCU

Damage Control regularly showed up in all sorts of Marvel comic books, and the clean-up crew even had a four issue limited miniseries at one point.

According to "Spider-Man Homecoming" director John Watts, there will be a lot of abandoned technology lying around New York City after battles like the Chitauri invasion, which we saw in "The Avengers."

“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," he said during an interview with Fandango.
