Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) plays a large role in Spider-Man’s (Tom Holland) life in Spider-Man Homecoming. While he may be a reluctant superhero mentor, Stark isn’t shy sharing new tech when designing and outfitting Peter Parker’s new Spider-Man suit.

Why would they do this? It seems that Tony Stark decided to create his own government-backed
Why would they do this? It seems that Tony Stark decided to create his own government-backed cleanup group (Damage Control?) and is taking all the business leaving Toomes and company out in the cold. Now they use their tech to “get what’s theirs.”
