Now that Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame are in the past and the MCU Phase 4 is underway, there’s been questions of who might return to future movies. After all, it seems anything is possible in these universes, so conceivably anyone could make a return appearance. Now we’ve got the latest on whether or not Carrie Coon, who played Proxima Midnight in Avengers: Infinity War, might make a return.
Marvel has a unique talent in bringing back characters we thought were long gone. So, with that said, it wouldn’t be out of the ordinary for Carrie Coon to come back. And in a conversation with THR, Carrie Coon hinted it’s always possible and that they got some assurances her making a return to the MCU wouldn’t be off the table. Here’s what she said:
Yes, that is certainly the kind of conversation that an agent would engage in when looking into committing to those jobs. Yes, they want some verbal assurances that the possibility for additional work is not completely off the table. So, yeah, absolutely. It’s like, you know, being on Chicago Fire. You get killed and then you can’t come back for another year. You want to make sure that we have job security, so we’re always asking that question. Absolutely.
For those who don’t recall, Carrie Coon’s villainous Proxima Midnight had a brief go of things in Avengers: Infinity War. At the end of that film, she brought Thanos’ armies to Wakanda to secure an infinity stone. While in the heat of battle, she fought Black Widow and Okoye before Scarlet Witch used telekinesis to throw her in front of a Thresher, killing her.
There’s a couple of ways Carrie Coon could potentially make a comeback. With DC toying with the multiverse in their upcoming Flash movie, there have been rumors swirling that the MCU might also dabble in the multiverse, too. If that happens, it wouldn’t be impossible to have her character return from another universe.
The other way would be to use her as a totally different character. Since Carrie Coon’s character required extensive CGI (you can hardly tell it’s her), it wouldn’t be out of the question if she made an appearance in the MCU as a totally different character. Who that character would be is anyone’s guess. But whatever ends up happening, let's hope Marvel brings Carrie Coon back to the table. For more movie news, be sure to stay tuned to CinemaBlend.
