BLACK WIDOW: Marvel Artist Andy Park Shares His Approved Concept Design For Taskmaster
Marvel Studios artist Andy Park has taken to Twitter to share his approved concept design for Taskmaster, who proved to be something of a divisive element in Cate Shortland's Black Widow movie...
Regular Marvel Studios artist Andy Park has shared his approved concept design for Taskmaster, who made
his her MCU debut in Cate Shortland's solo Black Widow movie.
This looks practically identical to the outfit the character wore in the film. It's not one of Marvel's more comic-accurate costumes, but it did end up looking pretty cool on screen.
Many fans were convinced that O.T. Fagbenle's Mason would ultimately be unveiled as the highly-skilled baddie, but when the character was unmasked towards the end of the movie, we found out that Dreykov's (Ray Winstone) enforcer was actually his own daughter, Antonia (Olga Kurylenko), who Natasha (Scarlett Jonhansson) believed she had killed many years before.
Check out Park's Tweet below.
TASKMASTER! This was the approved concept design I did for the BLACK WIDOW film. This was a fun one to figure out. Shoutout to @JacksonSze for doing an early pass on the character that had elements the director liked that got incorporated here. #Taskmaster #BlackWidow pic.twitter.com/eg70sEJZHr— Andy Park (@andyparkart) July 19, 2021
We don't know if we'll see Taskmaster again, but Kurylenko did recently say she'd "love" to reprise the role, so it all depends on whether the powers that be have more plans for the character.
