When Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow makes her way back onto movie screens this year, she’ll have another formidable opponent to face in Taskmaster.

With the arrival of the latest trailer for the Avengers character’s standalone film comes a closer look at the villain Taskmaster. Based on what’s shown in the Black Widow movie trailer, fans are getting a better idea of who the villain is and what they bring to battle.

New Black Widow movie trailer

The newest trailer from Marvel Studios gives fans many of the scenes they saw when the first official Black Widow trailer arrived weeks ago. There are a few new lines about what Natasha’s up to and why she’s back to see her family. Red Guardian (David Harbour) gets in another one-liner, and there are some more glimpses of battle scenes.

In particular, viewers are seeing much more of the villain that Black Widow will go up against named Taskmaster.

In the several scenes that appear in the trailer, the masked villain is in full battle mode wearing armor and wielding a shield that can deflect bullets. Taskmaster also shows another interesting aspect of his (or her) battle abilities, in that they can mimic the various moves of the Avengers.

Examples include hurling that shield like Captain America and performing an exact replica of Natasha’s flip up from the ground as she does. There’s also a cool chase scene in which Taskmasker is diving through the sky blasting a rapid-fire weapon at a diving Black Widow.
