Avengers: Infinity War is an unprecedented crossover film 10 years in the making that sees the Avengers face off against Thanos. With near 18 movies of build up the cast is stuffed with heroes and the already robust cast just got bigger.

While speaking to RadioTimes.com, directors Joe and Anthony Russo revealed that Carrie Coon will play Proxima Midnight, a member of Thanos’ Black Order.

Coon recently starred in season 3 of FX’s Fargo and HBO’s The Leftovers. She will portray the only female member of the Black Order.

The Russo brothers also confirmed two more of the Black Order actors. Terry Notary and Tom Vaughan-Lawlor are set to portray Cull Obsidian and Ebony Maw. Ebony Maw has faced off most commonly with Doctor Strange in the comics and from shots seen in trailers, this seems likely to happen in the film.

The Russos spoke on Terry Notary and Cull Obsidian, as the character is mostly silent throughout the film. “He’s not so much a voice,” Anthony Russo said.

“Well, he did voice the character,” Joe Russo cut in saying, “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.”

It is still unknown who will be voicing the fourth member of the Black Order, this is likely being saved for the film to reveal.

Avengers: Infinity War is set to release later this month on April 27th.
