The identities of the actors voicing Thanos’s villainous Black Order in Avengers: Infinity War has been a mystery since the characters were announced to appear. That was until Russo Brothers let it slip that Fargo actress Carrie Coon would be voicing Proxima Midnight in the upcoming Marvel blockbuster.
In an interview with Radio Times, the Infinity War directors announced that Coon would be taking on the iconic comic role. They also revealed that Terry Notary and Tom Vaughan-Lawlor would be voicing Cull Obsidian and Ebony Maw respectively. Notary is a veteran motion capture artist, while Vaughan-Lawlor is an Irish actor who starred in 2017’s The Cured.
Coon is most well known for her roles in Fargo and The Leftovers, where she became a fan favorite. She also appeared in the 2017 Oscar contender, The Post. After the news broke, the actress took to Twitter to confirm her involvement in Infinity War:

In the comics, Proxima Midnight first appeared in September 2013 in The New Avengers Vol. 3 #8. She is married to fellow Black Order member Corvus Glaive, who’s the only member not to have his voice actor announced. It’s unknown if the characters will have the same relationship in the film.
