‘Marvels Avengers’ game: Black Widow’s connection to the villain Taskmaster revealed

With the “Marvel’s Avengers” release date fast approaching, more details about the upcoming title are trickling in. This time, a trailer shows Black Widow meeting one of the game’s villains for the first time.

The trailer is not actually from the “Marvel’s Avengers” game but from the upcoming movie “Black Widow.” In the movie’s final trailer, Natasha met her enemy known as the Taskmaster for the first time giving fans a few details about the villain.

Since Taskmaster will also be featured in the game, these details might also interest some gamers who are waiting for the game’s launch. The villain is a rather enigmatic character as he is seen always wearing some sort of mask that none of his facial features can be seen.

After trading blows with the villain, Natasha’s interest is piqued. “Who the hell is that guy?” she asks Yelena.

Luckily, Yelena has more intel on the villain. “His call sign’s Taskmaster,” she explains. “He controls the Red Room.”

The Red Room is a Russian Program that trained Natasha as a child until she became the Black Widow, according to CBR. In the trailer, Taskmaster is seen reviewing Natasha’s fighting child.

Last year, a “Marvel’s Avengers” gameplay trailer was released that shows the villain’s fighting prowess. Black Widow is seen fighting Taskmaster on a bridge. Surprisingly, the villain was able to display Romanoff’s fighting style.

Apparently, Taskmaster’s special ability is that he can mimic the fighting style of his opponent. Not only was he able to fight like Black Widow, but he also effortlessly unleashed moves by Hawkeye, Captain America, and Black Panther.

But CBR dug even further to reveal the connection between Natasha and Taskmaster. Apparently, meeting the villain in battle was not Natasha’s first time meeting the character.

She already met Taskmaster before but the villain wasn’t Taskmaster yet back then. Based on the comics, Taskmaster had another identity as Tony Masters, the Combat Cohesion Officer of S.H.I.E.L.D.S.

This means that they were once fighting for the same side. For yet unknown reasons, Masters must have left S.H.I.E.L.D.S. at some point and rebranded himself as Taskmaster.

"Marvel's Avengers" will be released on September 4, 2020.
