Black Widow features Natasha Romanoff’s backstory as she teams up with her sister Yelena Belova and the rest of her Russian family to defeat the villainous Taskmaster. A new still, released by Empire magazine, shows Scarlett Johansson‘s Romanoff taking the villain.
Taskmaster, also known as Tony Masters, first appeared in 1980’s The Avengers #195 by David Michelinie and George Perez and has played a villain, an antihero and a hero throughout his history. The character has an incredibly unique ability that allows him to mimic the physical movements of anyone he observes, heroes and villains alike, and as a child, he observed the movements of many superheroes and trained himself for a life of crime.
However, he eventually switched gears and decided to create a training center for other aspiring criminals. One of Taskmaster’s most famous students was Crossbones, a Hydra operative that was featured in Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Captain America: Civil War.
Black Widow is scheduled to premiere on November 6, 2020.
This is post P-90x. I’m saying I watched the videos. I’m not saying I participated. Born in my mom’s basement, I’ve stayed there to embody the stereotype. One day I will rise up… to the main floor of the house.
