AceShowbiz - Carrie Coon is the latest name added to the list of cast in upcoming "Avengers: Infinity War". In an interview with Radio Times, movie directors Joe and Anthony Russo confirm that Carrie will be voicing Proxima Midnight. They also reveal several other celebrities who is tapped to voice other villanious characters.
In the interview, Joe says, "Carrie Coon is Proxima Midnight and you may know her from season three of 'Fargo' or 'The Leftovers'." In the comic, Proxima is a master combatant and is the only female member of Thanos' Black Order. She owns a spear that is created from a star trapped in a quantum singularity by Thanos (Josh Brolin). The spear can kill the victim in minutes, even bind and revert an enraged Hulk back to Bruce Banner.
Also during the interview, the Russo brothers announce the actors who will be lending their voices to two other Black Order members. Tom Vaughan-Lawlor is tapped to provide the voice for telekinetic Villain Ebony Maw, while Terry Notary, who is known for his role in "Avatar", takes the role of Cull Obsidian.
The actress also takes to Twitter to confirm the news of her providing voice for Proxima Midnight. She writes, "It's true! My voice and a dazzle of gifted animators have teamed up to play Proxima Midnight."
Talking about Terry's barely-speaking character, Anthony said, "He's not so much a voice." Joe, however, interjected, "Well, he did voice the character, but he's one of the most gifted movement specialists in the world right now. He played a character who we've called Cull Obsidian, who was in the books known as Black Dwarf. So it's kind of an all-star cast of baddies."
"Avengers: Infinity War" is the latest gig for Carrie. Besides starring on several small-screen series, Carrie starred in several movies, including 2017's "The Keeping Hours" as Elizabeth and in "The Post" as Meg Greenfield. She will next be seen in Jody Hill's "The Legacy of a Whitetail Deer Hunter" which is due out on July 6 and Steve McQueen's "Widows", which is set to be released on November 16 in the United States.
Carrie won Individual Achievement in Drama at the 2017 TCA Award for her perfomances on "The Leftovers" and "Fargo".
