The great Taskmaster-Darkhawk set photo conspiracy was settled last night during the Black Widow Hall H panel when they outright confirmed that Natasha would come face to face with one of Marvel’s most feared combatants, Taskmaster. And today, the film’s head of visual development Andy Park revealed some key concept art that was given away as a freebie for the attendees, depicting Natasha’s showdown with Taskmaster.
It’s currently unclear who’s under the mask but it’s a sweet ass mask anyway. Once again, Marvel Studios continues to kill in the costume department as they perfectly blend comic book motifs with real-life functionality. Those set photos really didn’t do the design justice. There’s so much detail to be in awe of; the skull-like mouthpiece, the blue-orange color scheme, the cloak, the shield and Taskmaster’s symbol on it. All that’s missing is a cape (which I’m sure they’ll include) and the sword. Some set photos showed him wielding a bow-like weapon so he has that going on for him.
