Leaked Black Widow Images Give Fans a Great New Look at Taskmaster and Others

Black Widow's Taskmaster

Despite the chaos that has engulfed the world in panicked flames due to the COVID-19 virus spreading like wildfire, Phase 4 of the MCU is still scheduled to kick off with Black Widow, which was originally scheduled for a May 1 release date but has since been delayed with no updated release announcement. Fans are excited as ever to finally see Natasha Romanoff / Black Widow, a character who has been in the MCU since 2010's Iron Man 2, get her own feature film. And because this highly anticipated project is currently on hold for the forseeable future, fans will take anything that they can get their hands on to keep them excited. 

NEWS 

A new leak on Twitter from Nação Marvel (@nacaomarvell) has revealed some new stills of the upcoming Black Widow feature. You can view the new images below:

After the initial leak of these images on Twitter, the same image of the mysterious character known only thus far as "Taskmaster" was later posted on Reddit by the user /u/anilsoi11, providing a more high-definition look at the full-body image of the character. 

Here, he is seen emerging from the shadows on what appears to be the same bridge from a previous Black Widow trailer, on which he confronts and fights with Black Widow herself.

WHAT THIS MEANS 

As previously mentioned, an announcement hasn't been made in regards to an updated release date for the delayed Black Widow project, so only time will tell when fans will get to fully experience this film. Because of this, anxious fans will have even more time to speculate about every aspect of this film that has been revealed thus far, as well as what may be intentionally missing from what Marvel Studios has provided thus far. This new leak, however, offers very little information that the MCU's massive following does not already have. The most that anyone can take away from this leak is the better, full-body look at Taskmaster, since fans are still dying to know who he is and what all he is capable of. 

OUR THOUGHTS

Aeron Mer Eclarinal - I always loved Taskmaster's suit even if some fans are not fond of it. I wonder if this is the first version of his costume that would later evolve into different suits down the line. Taskmaster could pay homage to the Avengers by wearing new suits for every film that he will be included in the future.

John Ross Bradford - When I saw this leak, my attention immediately went to the new image of Taskmaster. I think his presence in the MCU is long overdue, but I believe it will be well-worth the wait. The way Marvel Studios is able to so easily modernize this character, and the way they make his copycat nature so recognizable from characters we already know and love, it will be such a delight to see on the big screen.
