Marvel Studios has released all-new footage of the upcoming “Black Widow” solo outing and it shows off a lot more of what fans want. The trailer shows more Black Widow agents, more action scenes from David Harbour’s Red Guardian super-soldier, and most excitingly to fans, the villain known as Taskmaster. 

Taskmaster is a villain with the ability of photographic memory and with that, the ability to instantly copy the skills and match the fighting styles of just about anyone he crosses or sees. The result is what we see in the trailer: an evil concoction of Captain America, Hawkeye, and Black Widow herself.

Many Marvel Cinematic Universe fans who are not familiar with the villain speculated on the possibility that this semi-prequel movie might be tricking us a little bit. They suggest that we’re seeing the infamous “Budapest” meet-up of Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson) and Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner). However, comic book fans do not believe that is the case. 

Taskmaster is his own character entirely and one that fans have been waiting to see for a long time. But to keep up with the mystery of the character, no actor has been officially attached to the role -- though bodybuilder and actor Olivier Richters has an undisclosed role in the film. The secrecy behind his or her identity masks any potential twists that may pertain to the character’s identity. 

The trailer also gave us a lot more dialogue from Florence Pugh’s Yelena Belova, who is also a Black Widow, alongside Romanoff and Rachel Weisz’s character. The characters all share a similar backstory that involved the Red Rooms, a training schools for assassins. After Romanoff explains to Belova that she set off to do something good, likely referencing her time with the Avengers, despite being a trained murderer, Pugh responds in a heavy Russian accent: “You’re fooling yourself. We are both still trained killers.” 

It’s clear from the trailer that something has brought Romanoff back to Russia to fight. She joins her “family,” the other Black Widows and the Red Guardian as a father figure to fight this new threat. That threat, from the looks of it, is Taskmaster. The final moments show Black Widow face off against Taskmaster, where he perfectly matches her fighting style.
