Avengers: Infinity War is just a week away from its release date, and now that the film’s moving closer and closer towards its premiere, fans finally get to learn more about the people behind Thanos’ Black Order.

Joe and Anthony Russo just recently got to spoke with the Radio Times about the immense cast in the first installment in Marvel’s two-part Avengers movie. During the interview, the two Directors got to reveal the actual actress behind the Black Order’s Proxima Midnight, pulling the physical veil over the voice over The Leftovers and Fargo actress Carrie Coon.

“Carrie Coon is Proxima Midnight,”  Joe Russo revealed, “and you may know her from season three of Fargo or the Leftovers.”

While the Emmy Award nominee actually gets to play the only female member of the Black Order in Infinity War, Irish actor Tom Vaughan-Lawlor plays the telekinetic Ebony Maw. Meanwhile, Terry Notary from Avatar, Planet of the Apes, and The Hobbit trilogy actually gets to voice Cull Obsidian, a quieter member of the Black Order.

It’s definitely going to be terrible seeing the Black Order wreak havoc over the Earth in Avengers: Infinity War and we hope that the Avengers manage to keep Thanos and his minions away from the Infinity Stones in the film (though that probably won’t last very long.)

Avengers: Infinity War premieres April 27.
