Another interesting tidbit from her original Marvel Comics storyline: she's married to another Black Order henchman, Corvus Glaive.
The stones - six rocks of inexplicable power which when combined will create even more incredible power - have become huge plot points in numerous Marvel Cinematic Universe movies, with each discovery taking us closer to the conclusion which we know will come in 2019 with Avengers 4.
Most excitingly, though, they announced the casting for Proxima Midnight: Carrie Coon, star of The Leftovers and Fargo Season 3, and someone who has proven herself to be television's best actress over the last few years thanks to her indelible performances on those shows (mostly Leftovers).
Coon herself shared the exciting news on Twitter, revealing, "My voice and a dazzle of gifted animators have teamed up to play Proxima Midnight". According to Variety, directors Joe and Anthony Russo spilled the beans to the British magazine Radio Times, stating that Coon will be lending her voice to the Black Order baddie Proxima Midnight.
When she throws it, the spear's innate power means it never misses its target, and said target is left immobilized on contact. We know that Ant-Man and the Wasp very much deals with the fallout of Civil War and takes place right after that film, but crucially, it sounds as if it's also happening before Infinity War. Many believe that Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones) is locked into that role.
Confirmation comes from no less a reliable source than the sibling filmmakers behind InfinityWar. Any thoughts on the cast? But he loves playing the character, I know that, and we love working together.
With excitement for Avengers: Infinity War reaching fever pitch, Spider-Man star Tom Holland has taken to Instagram to share a behind-the-scenes photo from the superhero blockbuster which sees him in his motion-capture suit (for the Iron Spider costume) alongside Chris Pratt's Star-Lord and Karen Gillan's Nebula.
