Proving that Thanos isn’t the only villain of Avengers: Infinity War, it’s now been revealed that Fargo and The Leftovers actress Carrie Coon will play the part of Proxima Midnight, a key member of the nefarious Black Order.
Radio Times has the scoop, confirming that Coon provides the voice of Thanos’ leading henchman – or henchwoman, really – alongside the telekinetic Ebony Maw (Tom Vaughan-Lawlor), Cull Obsidian (Avatar‘s Terry Notary) and the sinister Corvus Glaive. Still no word on who’s playing the latter, leading many to conclude that said role actually belongs to Peter Dinklage, given the Game of Thrones mainstay was previously confirmed for Infinity War.
Directors Joe and Anthony Russo refused to be drawn on the identity of Glaive’s voice actor, but the former did confirm Coon’s involvement during a recent chat with Radio Times:
Carrie Coon is Proxima Midnight, and you may know her from season three of Fargo or the Leftovers.
Perhaps more than anything else, news of Carrie Coon’s involvement only drives home that point that, yes, Avengers: Infinity War touts what is arguably the most impressive ensemble cast in the history of superhero movies. And things are only going to get more crowded, what with Disney’s impending acquisition of 20th Century Fox and all of its precious assets.
But let’s not get too far ahead of ourselves; Infinity War is almost upon us and it’s shaping up to be very special indeed. The addition of Coon as Proxima Midnight is simply the icing on a very big, very impressive cake.
Flanked by her unruly siblings – not to mention Gamora and Nebula – Carrie Coon’s villain will be part of the gigantic cast of Avengers: Infinity War when it opens worldwide on April 27th.
