For a while now, fans have been wondering whether Taskmaster will be the major villain in the upcoming Black Widow film, with only rumours and reported set sightings to go on. However, we now have our first official look at the villain in action.
The image was shared on Twitter by Marvel Studios’ Director of Visual Development, Andy Park, and shows Taskmaster fighting Natasha Romanoff:
“Check out this 1st reveal of the keyframe illustration I did for the Black Widow film… & TASKMASTER!!!” Park wrote.
This is definitely an exciting reveal and will certainly get fans more hyped for Black Widow.
The illustration seems to mirror the footage of the film that was shown at SDCC this year. Interestingly, the SDCC footage seemed to hint that Taskmaster had a connection to Nat, as their skills and moves during their fight seemed to mirror each other – possibly a nod to the villain having taught Nat everything that she knows.
Needless to say this has made us even more excited to see Black Widow when it hits cinemas on May 1st, 2020.
