Spider-Man: Homecoming

Following the Battle of New York, Adrian Toomes and his salvage company were contracted to clean up the city, but their operation was quickly taken over by Tony Stark's U.S. Department of Damage Control (D.O.D.C.). Enraged at being driven out of business, Toomes persuades his employees to keep the Chitauri technology they already scavenged and use it to create advanced weapons to sell on the black market. Eight years later, Peter Parker is drafted into the Avengers by Stark to help with an internal dispute,[N 2] but resumes his studies afterwards when Stark tells him he is not yet ready to become a full Avenger.

Parker quits Midtown School of Science and Technology's academic decathlon team so he can spend more time focusing on "the Stark internship", which is a cover for his crime-fighting activities as Spider-Man. One night, after preventing criminals from robbing an ATM with their advanced weapons from Toomes, Parker returns to his Queens apartment where his best friend Ned accidentally discovers his secret identity. On another night, Parker comes across Toomes' associates Jackson Brice / Shocker and Herman Schultz selling weapons to local criminal Aaron Davis. Parker nearly drowns intervening, and is rescued by Stark, who is monitoring the Spider-Man suit he gave Parker. Angry at Brice for jeopardizing the operation, Toomes accidentally kills him, and Schultz becomes the new Shocker.

Parker and Ned study a weapon left behind by Brice, removing its power core. When a tracking device on Schultz leads to Maryland, Parker rejoins the decathlon team and accompanies them to Washington, D.C. for their national tournament. Ned and Parker disable the tracker Stark implanted in the Spider-Man suit, and unlock all of its features. Parker tries to stop Toomes from stealing weapons from a D.O.D.C. truck, but is overpowered and trapped inside the truck, causing him to miss the decathlon tournament. When he discovers that the power core is an unstable Chitauri grenade, Parker races to the Washington Monument where the core explodes and traps Ned and their friends in an elevator. Evading local authorities, Parker saves his friends, including his fellow classmate and crush Liz.

Returning to New York City, Parker persuades Davis to reveal Toomes' whereabouts. Confronting Toomes and his associates at the Staten Island Ferry, Parker captures the group's new buyer Mac Gargan while Toomes escapes after a malfunctioning weapon tears the ferry in half. Stark helps Parker save the passengers before admonishing him for his recklessness and takes away his suit. Parker returns to his high school life, which gradually improves, and eventually asks Liz to go to the homecoming dance with him. On the night of the dance, Parker learns that Liz is Toomes' daughter. Deducing Parker's secret identity, but grateful as Spider-Man he saved his daughter's life, Toomes lets his previous interference aside, albeit threatens retaliation if Parker interferes with any future plans. Unable to let him go, Parker decides to capture Toomes. With the help of Ned, Parker realizes Toomes is planning to hijack a D.O.D.C. plane transporting weapons from Avengers Tower to the team's new headquarters. He dons his old homemade Spider-Man and races to Toomes' lair. He is first ambushed by Schultz outside the school, but is overpowered. Before Schultz can kill him, Ned appears and uses Parker's homemade web-shooter to disarm him, allowing Parker to subdue him. At the lair, Toomes tries to convince Parker to join him, but when Parker refuses, Toomes destroys the building's support beams and leaves him to die.

Parker is trapped under a ventilator, and pleads with Toomes to free him, but the latter leaves. Looking at his reflection and seeing the suit's mask in it, and remembering what Stark said about him ("If you're nothing without the suit, then you shouldn't​ have it"), he is able to escape, and intercepts the plane before steering it towards the beach near Coney Island. He and Toomes engage in an open confrontation that ends with Parker knocked out. Parker manages to save Toomes' life after the latter's suit malfunctions and leaves him for the NYPD. After her father's arrest, Liz and her mother move away and their classmate Michelle replaces her as captain of the academic decathlon team. Parker later declines Stark's invitation to join the Avengers full-time. Returning to his apartment, Parker discovers that Stark has returned his suit and puts it on just as his Aunt May walks in on him.

In a mid-credits scene, an incarcerated Gargan approaches Toomes in prison about joining with some other criminals to kill Spider-Man, but Toomes is not interested and is unwilling to reveal Parker's true identity. A post-credits scene features a public service announcement featuring Captain America, asking the audience to be patient.
