Why Tony Stark Recruits Spider-Man Over Daredevil According To Captain America: Civil War Writers

IGN's Terri Schwartz sat down with Captain America: Civil War screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely and asked them what Tony Stark's (Robert Downey Jr.) rationale was for recruiting Spider-Man (Tom Holland) instead of other characters like Daredevil (Charlie Cox).

"I think, he's been keeping tabs on the world, and he knows about this one kid," Markus says. "I think in some ways, there's a motivation having been accused of killing a young kid earlier in the movie to 'Maybe I can rebuild karmically some of what I've lost by helping this kid along.' And he's there, and he's available. And Tony's desperate."

"He probably sees some of himself in this kid," adds McFeely.

In Captain America: Civil War, governments around the world hold Earth's Mightiest Heroes accountable for their actions, despite the amount of lives they've saved. Heroes divide as Captain America (Chris Evans) and Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) butt heads, and fists, while fighting for what they believe in!
