Black Widow Set Photos Reveal Mysterious Costumed Character

Black-Widow-Avengers

Black Widow's long-anticipated solo film may currently be shooting, but there is still very little we know about the movie's actual plot. We've seen star Scarlett Johansson on set, the tease of a possible second Black Widow, and we've gotten a glimpse at what appears to be the movie's official logo... and that's pretty much it.

Now, however, we have something even more intriguing than previous leaks from the set. New photos reveal a mysterious character wearing not only a mask, but full body armor. The character can be seen in broad daylight, in the middle of the streets, standing inside what appears to be some sort of armored vehicle.

The caption accompanying the photo asks if this character could be Taskmaster, but the guess seems unlikely. After all, there are no similarities between Taskmaster's look in the comics -- from the cape, hood and skull mask to the sword and shield -- and the character in these set photos.

Black Widow is expected to be an origin story for Johansson's Natasha Romanoff, but considering the set pictures offer no overt evidence that it is a period film, there's a bit of mystery as to when, exactly, the story takes place.
