Black Widow is finally gaining the traction that it really deserves. Who else believes with me on this?
All speculations show that Black Widow is only a few months away from hitting cinemas, marking not just the beginning of the MCU’s Phase 4 but additionally Scarlett Johansson’s first starring vehicle in the franchise.
Marvel Studios’ Black Widow – Official Teaser Trailer
If you are too impatient to wait until May to find out what happens, however, a highly-detailed escape has surfaced online which runs throughout the major developments of the film. Granted, this advice will come from 4Chan, but there may be some leaks on there and this one line up with a lot of what insiders are saying recently.
For starters, it apparently reveals Taskmaster’s identity. The big bad of the movie was portrayed as a formidable yet mysterious existence in the trailers up to now, together with the second one containing Natasha asking”who is that man?”, especially drawing on our attention to the fact that who’s under the mask.
And according to the consumer, Taskmaster is the character played by O-T Fagbenle, imputed on IMDb as Mason. He’s thought to be Natasha’s ex but beyond that, his villainous motives are yet unknown.
It makes sense, also, as he’s been kept from the trailers, as we know the least about his personality. And if you hoped that Marvel would come up with a better spin than this, rest easy knowing that Black Widow’s leaker also clarifies that there’s another plot twist that we won’t spoil here that sort of makes up for this one.
But in regards to Taskmaster, we know that he has the ability to mimic his competitor’s battle style, something which was glimpsed in the second preview when he managed to instantly match Natasha’s position. It remains to be seen whether this is actually the case or not, although making him that the heroine lover also would add an extra dimension that is personal to his evil.
