Answer to Trivia

The reviews are in and it seems that Sony finally got Spider-Man right in this week's Spider-Man: Homecoming. I don't think it's a coincidence that it's also the first one that Marvel helped to create.

Not only did Robert Downey Jr. bring his Iron Man alter ego along for the ride, but he gifted Spider-Man with a new suit. Much like his own Iron Man suit, Peter Parker's new suit came equiped with an on-board computer.

The computer, called Karen, is voiced by Jennifer Connelly. She has an interesting connection to the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). Her husband Paul Bettany voiced the computer J.A.R.V.I.S. in the first few Iron Man before evolving into Vision.

As for Jennifer Connelly herself, she played Betty Ross in the 2003 film The Hulk. While not technically in the MCU, it's pretty apparent that she brings plenty of Marvel luck to the big screen.

Spider-Man: Homecoming is new this week on 4K UHD, Blu-ray and DVD.
