Created by David Michelinie and George Pérez, Taskmaster is classic Marvel Comics villain with the ability to replicate the combat skills of anyone he observes. Taskmaster made his debut in The Avengers #195, which was published in May 1980.
Plot details are still under wraps but the film is set after the events of 2016’s Captain America: Civil War. In the comics, Natasha Romanoff was trained by the Winter Soldier himself, Bucky Barnes, played by Sebastian Stan in the MCU though there have been no rumors of him appearing in the film.
Cate Shortland is directing Black Widow from a script written by Ned Benson and Jac Schaeffer. The cast includes Scarlett Johansson, David Harbour, Florence Pugh, O-T Fagbenle and Rachel Weisz. Filming is currently underway.
Black Widow arrives in theaters on May 1, 2020. Stay tuned for the latest news on the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe!

Here is the official synopsis for The Lion King:
Director Jon Favreau’s all-new “The Lion King” journeys to the African savanna where a future king is born. Simba idolizes his father, King Mufasa, and takes to heart his own royal destiny. But not everyone in the kingdom celebrates the new cub’s arrival. Scar, Mufasa’s brother—and former heir to the throne—has plans of his own. The battle for Pride Rock is ravaged with betrayal, tragedy and drama, ultimately resulting in Simba’s exile. With help from a curious pair of newfound friends, Simba will have to figure out how to grow up and take back what is rightfully his.
Directed by Jon Favreau from a script written by Jeff Nathanson, The Lion Kingstars Donald Glover as Simba, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter as Nala, James Earl Jones as Mufasa, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar, Seth Rogen as Pumbaa and Billy Eichner as Timon.
