The Marvel villain - who appears to wear a skull-like mask in Black Widow, similar to the mask worn by Crossbones (Frank Grillo) in Captain America: Civil War - is famous for being able to perfectly mimic the physical movements of anyone he sees, which means he can fight as capably as whoever he's battling.

In Marvel Studios' action-packed spy thriller "Black Widow", Natasha Romanoff aka Black Widow confronts the darker parts of her ledger when a unsafe conspiracy with ties to her past arises.

Fast forward a decade, and that opportunity is finally here with 2020's Black Widow. Fans could not help but go gaga over Scarlett and Taskmaster.

Neil Peart Dead: Rush Drummer Was 67
They are ranked third, behind the Beatles and the Rolling Stones , for most consecutive gold or platinum albums by a rock band. Born in Hamilton, Ont., Peart joined Rush in 1974, after the band's first album, replacing original drummer John Rutsey.

"I was trying to do something good", Natasha tells her old teammate. "We are both still trained killers". In order to complete her mission, she needs more allies, and winds up enlisting the help of Alexei Shostakov a.k.a. The new look at the film teases Nat and co. facing off against a new league of Widows and an ominous masked figure known as Taskmasker.

In December, Pugh shared her excitement at being a part of the female-led project. Maybe, after Infinity War, Natasha discovers that Yelena is one of the people snapped away, and when she's on Vormir, it isn't just about her Avengers family, but also about her sister. "And that was a really nice thing to get to, and of course I got to be with the Black Widow and watch her work, which was pretty unbelievable considering she's been the only female superhero for the past 10 years". Scarlett Johansson, Kevin Feige and director Cate Shortland discuss the character's journey throughout the MCU's 10-year run. MCU alum William Hurt reprises his role as Secretary of State Thaddeus Ross.

Potential Black Widow spoilers: This might sound dumb I'm not sure but is it possible that Rachael Weisz's character "Melina" could be Taskmaster in the upcoming Black Widow movie.
