According to the comics, Taskmaster is not a villain but sometimes also plays an anti-hero. Taskmaster is known to mimic the physical abilities of their opponent which makes it more difficult to defeat. Some fan theories suggest that Taskmaster in the Black Widow movie will be played by Rachel Weisz, who reportedly has a mysterious character in the film.
