‘Black Widow’ Will Feature 7’2” Actor/Bodybuilder Olivier Richters


Marvel Studios and director Cate Shortland have been shooting the solo Black Widow for weeks now, but supporting cast members continue to be revealed. This time, Dutch actor/bodybuilder/model Olivier Richters has announced that he’ll appear in the film via social media.

In his Instagram post, Richters reveals that he’s already shot his scenes in the UK, and shares his excitement about being part of the project. 

Richters writes:


“I can finally tell you guys! For the last 3 weeks, I have been in the UK filming my part for the movie: Black Widow (Marvel Studios). This year in January, for the first time in my life I started to join castings for movies, who would have thought that I got to start with ”The King’s Man”, then of to ”Gangs of London (HBO)” and now Black Widow (Marvel). If someone in 2018 told me my career in the movie industry would start like this, I would have called an ambulance for him. It has always been my dream to do something with my size. Can’t wait for all the releases in 2020.”

Black Widow is set to hit theaters on May 1, 2020.
