New Black Widow trailer puts Taskmaster front and centre

The final Black Widow (opens in new tab) trailer has arrived – and it puts the villain Taskmaster at its centre. The Marvel Phase 4 (opens in new tab)movie will see Scarlett Johansson's doomed Avenger team up with Florence Pugh's Yelena Belova – herself another Black Widow – and David Harbour's Red Guardian to defeat the masked adversary.

We still have no confirmation regarding who will be portraying Taskmaster, though many fans are speculating that Rachel Weisz's character – also a Black Widow – may have alternate intentions. We already know that the actress is playing Melina Vostokoff, who, in the comics, is a villain and wears Iron Maiden Armor. Perhaps the character has been gender-flipped and the armour changed to match Taskmasters? 

Whatever the case, the action scenes look incredible, and we cannot wait to see the Black Widow "family" team-up to save the day. Black Widow will be the first Marvel movie to reach cinemas since Spider-Man: Far From Home brought Marvel Phase 3 to a close. It reaches theatres on May 1 and is not expected to be delayed (despite rumours to the contrary). (opens in new tab)

The family also come together in the latest Black Widow movie poster which, interestingly, also offers up a glimpse at O-T Fagbenle's unnamed character. Still no sign of Ray Winstone, though.
