Entertainment Weekly confirmed the actress voices Karen, the AI inside Peter Parker's Spider-suit, on loan to him from Tony Stark. Iron Man has been a proponent of artificial intelligence, first with JARVIS (voiced by Paul Bettany, Connelly's husband) and then with the creation of Vision (portrayed once again by Bettany).

"Yes, it's Jarvis' wife. Pretty cool, right?" director Jon Watts told the magazine.
