Black Widow has finally hit theaters and at Disney +, which means we can finally find out who’s hiding underneath the mask of Taskmaster.
After several months of uncertainty and release date changes as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, Marvel let fans say goodbye to Natasha romanoff and, above all, Scarlett Johansson in her universe.
If you are one of those who have already seen Black Widow, you will know that several scenes have helped us to understand more about his mysterious life, but also some passages from past MCU movies. One character in particular reminded us of a scene seen in 2012’s Avengers.
Black Widow’s interrogation of Loki already has an answer
During the events of the first Avengers movie, Loki is imprisoned in a SHIELD helicopter. Here Black Widow talks to him and the ‘God of Deception’ names the ex-spy’s ‘crimes’ or, as Loki calls them, ‘her sins’.
“Can you pay off all your debts, Natasha?” Loki asks the Black Widow. “Dreykov’s daughter, São Paulo, the hospital fire? Barton told me everything. You lie and you kill. You pretend to be different by having your own codes, but you are equal to those you serve “, rebukes the son of Asgard.
After remembering this, let’s move on to the Black Widow movie. The backstory to Hawkeye and Black Widow’s infamous Budapest adventure is actually darker than we think. As the final step to Natasha’s defection, her mission was to kill Dreykov, the leader of the Red Room.
In the tape we see how, Fully aware that Dreykov’s daughter Antonia was with him, he gives the go-ahead for them to activate the bomb that had been planted in his office.. Although she believed for several years that both were dead, the truth was not like that.
The explosion leaves the leader’s heiress with facial scars and leads her to become Taskmaster, a character who is capable of copying anyone’s fighting style once she has seen it.
Hawkeye could explain more about Black Widow
We still don’t know what happened in São Paulo or what happened in the hospital. Although some fans indicate that this information will not be revealed due to the death of Natasha Romanoff in Avengers: endgame, there is still the possibility that Clint Barton tells what happened in these missions in the Hawkeye series, which will arrive at Disney + at the end of the year .
