Thanks to a new Black Widow Topps trading card image that’s been shared online, we have our best look yet at a character who’s sparked a lot of discussion and speculation since he first popped up in the trailers, Taskmaster.
The pic features a full body shot of the mysterious villain, giving us a much more detailed look at his armor.
There are some similarities to Taskmaster’s getup in the comics, but this take on the costume has come in for quite a bit of backlash. Still, these type of things usually come across better in live-action, and we’ve only seen very brief glimpses of him in the trailers and TV spots.
We still know very little about Taskmaster or how he’ll factor into the plot. It’s believed that O-T Fagbenle will play him, but that has yet to be confirmed and could simply be misdirection. One outlandish theory claims that it might be Jeremy Renner‘s Clint Barton under the mask, but that seems more like wishful thinking to us.
