Black Widow Featurette Digs into the Character Who Debuted 10 Years Ago

Black Widow Featurette Digs into the Character Who Debuted 10 Years Ago

Following the release of the new special look trailer for Black Widow, a new featurette for Marvel Studios' highly-anticipated film arrived online.

In the comics, Taskmaster is white dude Tony Masters, but since this is a movie all about Black Widow, Taskmaster can't be a dude.

Die-hard fans are also given a better look at Marvel's infamous and extremely mysterious supervillain, Taskmaster - who seemingly mirrors Romanoff's skillsets as a "trained killer".

Black Widow is set between the events of Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War, and starts with Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson) on the run from worldwide authorities after betraying her allegiance to the Sokovia Accords. "I'm on the run".

Turns out Black Widow has a new mission to tackle, which may involve her clan (Belova, Alexei Shostakov [David Harbour], and Melina Vostokoff [Rachel Weisz]). Perhaps one of her jobs will come back to haunt her. For example, the likes of Britney Spears, Beyonce, and Justin Timberlake - who have more or less been in the public eye for my entire life - are just 38-years-old! The new look at the film teases Nat and co. facing off against a new league of Widows and an ominous masked figure known as Taskmasker.

Meanwhile, Shortland expressed her excitement at seeing the "real" Natasha. Pursued by a force that will stop at nothing to bring her down, Natasha must deal with her history as a spy and the broken relationships left in her wake long before she became an Avenger. Actresses starring in the next Marvel Studios feature - namely Scarlett Johansson and Florence Pugh - earned a total of three Oscar nods between them for their work in awesome movies including Jojo Rabbit, Marriage Story, and Little Women. "She's not a classic hero because she has a dark past".

Black Widow also stars O-T Fagbenle (The Handmaid's Tale) as SHIELD agent Rick Mason. The unique talent makes Taskmaster a formidable foe for Black Widow.
