Carrie Coon is joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
In an interview with Radio Times, Avengers: Infinity War co-director Joe Russo revealed that the Fargo and The Leftovers star is playing Proxima Midnight, a member of the Black Order. In the comics, Proxima Midnight is arguably the greatest warrior of Thanos, with a spear made of blades from a star that can cut through any substance.
Furhermore, Joe Russo’s brother and co-director Anthony confirmed that Terry Notary is voicing fellow Black Order member Cull Obsidian in addition to bringing the character to life through motion-capture. Tom Vaughan-Lawlor is also on board as Ebony Maw, but the identity of the actor behind Corvus Glaive remains a mystery.
Infinity War is the culmination of the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe and features the fractured Avengers teaming up with the Guardians of the Galaxy to take on the Mad Titan and his army. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for more updates as the film’s release approaches.
Avengers: Infinity War opens on April 27, 2018, with a cast that includes Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Bettany, Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautisa, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Pom Klementieff, Karen Gillan, Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Holland, Sebastian Stan, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Rudd, Benedict Wong, Letitia Wright, Danai Gurira, Winston Duke, Tom Hiddleston, Benicio Del Toro, Tom Vaughan-Lawlor and Josh Brolin. Here’s the film’s official synopsis:
As the Avengers and their allies have continued to protect the world from threats too large for any one hero to handle, a new danger has emerged from the cosmic shadows: Thanos. A despot of intergalactic infamy, his goal is to collect all six Infinity Stones, artifacts of unimaginable power, and use them to inflict his twisted will on all of reality. Everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment – the fate of Earth and existence itself has never been more uncertain.
The currently-untitled Avengers 4 features a cast made up of many of the key players in Infinity War — alongside newcomers like Brie Larson and Evangeline Lilly — and is scheduled to hit theaters on May 3, 2019.
