This morning I watched the final Black Widow trailer and was pleased with the villain they selected for her to face off against...
The sales pitch:

We are finally getting a movie about Russian spy-turned-SHIELD agent-turned super hero Black Widow. And the big bad in this movie will be the do-it-all combat savant and superthug trainer Taskmaster.

While he can't copy superpowers, he can duplicate any martial art that he witnesses, including the skilled use of weapons. He has a round shield, and bow and arrows that mirror weapons Black Widow's fellow Avengers use, so it will be fun to see him bang heads with Natasha Romanov.
I have maintained for some time that Taskmaster (like his younger creative cousin Deadpool) started out as a knockoff of the DC character Deathstroke the Terminator. As such, I am glad to see him making his big screen debut as we move into the post-Thanos (knockoff of Darkseid) era of the MCU.
But I digress...
Are y'all excited about Black Widow or nah?
