Thanks to SDCC 2019, we got a few more details about the standalone Black Widow starring Scarlet Johansson, and among the reveals was a piece of concept art for Taskmaster.
Taskmaster will be the main Marvel villain featured in Black Widow, and the concept art is from Andy Park, who has worked on multiple MCU movies. The piece features Black Widow fighting Taskmaster at night on what looks like a bridge. Apparently this scene was also showcased during the Marvel panel, and those who saw it said Taskmaster fights almost exactly like Black Widow.
In terms of the art, I dig the look of Taskmaster. I’m cool with the helmet looking like a helmet and not a skull face, but I’m not sure about the goggles. I also would have liked to have seen a cape and sword, which are staples for the character.
Black Widow is scheduled to hit theaters on May 1, 2020.
