Black Widow Movie Hinting At A New Villain In The Shadows
The Marvel Cinematic Universe is probably building upon a new villain that will face Natasha Romanoff or Black Widow. For quite some time fans wanted to have a separate movie series for Scarlett Johansson. Now, it is possible that they might be getting a couple of them because of this theory. There seems to be a new villain working in the shadows, someone who is probably not Taskmaster.
Black Widow Has An Unrevealed Villain?
For quite some time fans were made to believe that Taskmaster is going to be a huge deal for Natasha Romanoff. However, that doesn’t mean that there cannot be one other working against the Avengers superhero. We got this idea from emojis that were released only recently. These emojis suggest that Rachel Weisz’s Melina Vostokoff is possibly Iron Maiden. The villainous character was introduced in 1983 as a foe of Black Widow.

In the comics, Vostokoff took on the role of Iron Maiden in order to bring down Black Widow. In the movie, which Cate Shortland is directing, we are also getting a hint of Melina becoming something similar since she is already a “former” Black Widow. Also, Weisz was assigned an undisclosed character at first. Then, there was a concept that Melina herself is the Taskmaster. This suggests that she might turn out to become something more important for the storyline.
If you are still not convinced then read this.
Among the villains that Black Widow, Natasha, will face, Melina links with Taskmaster the most. Almost all of the people Romanoff is associated with have some form of “red on their ledger”. However, Melina is special in this case. Weisz tells that her character had been to the Red Room for five times and that “she’s quite a seasoned spy and assassin.” She also told that her character is part of a secret scientific experiment which she cannot disclose.
Ultimately, if there are two villanous characters for Scarlett Johansson’s Romanoff, then there is a definite chance that we will also get to see Black Widow 2.
