"...in Marvel Comics 'Spider-Man' stories, 'Mary Fitzpatrick' was the daughter of 'O.S.S'. agent 'Wild Will' Fitzpatrick'. She attended the best schools and eventually followed in her father's footsteps, becoming a 'C.I.A.' translator and data analyst. 'Richard' and Mary met on the job, fell in love, and married. Originally they eloped, later having a more elaborate service, fooling many.
"Mary became a field agent like Richard, giving them both an easy cover as a married couple. Their son, 'Peter', was often left in the care of 'Ben' and his wife 'May' when Richard and Mary were away on missions.

"It's always great when a director is just supportive of what you're doing," said Roberts about her character in 'Madame Web'. "They're not so much critiquing you but giving you more ideas, giving you tons of things to work with...
"...making you question your character and making you think more about it...
“…and making it seem like everything is limitless. That usually helps a lot.
