Carrie Coon, seen Off-Broadway earlier this season in Mary Jane, has lent her voice to the upcoming Marvel Studios feature Avengers: Infinity War. According to Variety, the Tony and Emmy nominee voices the villain Proxima Midnight (of Thanos’ Black Order) in the crossover superhero film.

Coon, who earned a Tony nomination for the 2012 Broadway revival of Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, received a Lucille Lortel Award nod earlier this month for her work in Amy Herzog’s Mary Jane, which played New York Theatre Workshop last fall. On screen, Coon has appeared in The Leftovers, Fargo (earning an Emmy nomination), The Post, and the upcoming film Widows, joining Tony winners Viola Davis and Cynthia Erivo.

Infinity War, which unites myriad Marvel lead players (including current Broadway star Chris Evans as Captain America), premieres April 23.
