UNITED STATES.- One of the most anticipated films by fans of Marvel is without a doubt “Black widow”. The movie starring Scarlett Johansson will hit theaters on July 9, 2021. But with it has emerged a theory regarding the villain of the story: Taskmaster. While the identity of this has been a mystery, the speculation begins to skyrocket in a staggering way.
One of them is that Taskmaster could be a clone of Buck Barnes (The Winter Soldier). Recall that the character played by Sebastian Stan has gained great popularity in recent times. Especially after his appearance in the Disney Plus series “The Falcon and The Winter Soldier”, which could put him in a place of prominence in the film of “Black widow”.
In this sense, this theory is worth breaking down. First of all, Taskmaster has the ability to be able to imitate the movements of any person and to anticipate what they could do. He even knows abilities of Captain America, Black Panther, Hawkeye, Red Guardian, among others and others. Thus, this conjecture suggests that the Russians experimented with it and made such a clone.
But while it is true that the theory could make a certain sense, the reality within the comics is different. Taskmaster, as such, is not a clone. He worked as a combat instructor and dedicated himself to being a mercenary, and due to his abilities, he posed as a good number of superheroes. Taking this as a premise, the conjecture could fall by itself as he is also a fairly consolidated antihero.
But while this is one of the most interesting characters in the Marvel Universe, it would not be a surprise if the studio seeks to turn the story of “Black widow“To make it much more attractive. Taskmaster could prove that HYDRA is still alive and, if this Bucky Barnes “prophecy” comes true, we will undoubtedly be in front of the new superhero movie star for a long time.
