“Terry Notary… He did voice the character, but his movement… He’s one of the most gifted movement specialists in the world right now,” Russo said. “He played a character we called Cull Obsidian. In the [comic] books, he was known as Black Dwarf. It’s an all-star cast of baddies.” 

The Russo’s also recently revealed that Michael James Shaw (Limitless TV series, Papa Midnite in the Constantine series) is playing Corvus Glaive.

“It’s a gentleman named Michael Shaw… He’s an actor, and we cast a wide net for these characters,” Joe Russo told CinemaBlend.

“In the same way we were approaching Thanos with Josh Brolin to bring sort of a very grounded, realistic performance, we wanted to do that with everyone in the Black Order. So we cast very, very good actors for those,” Anthony Russo added.
