This Reddit Theory CONFIRMS!!! ‘Jeremy Renner’ is ‘Taskmaster’ in Black Widow Movie

The Taskmaster for the upcoming Marvel movie Black Widow might be played by Jeremy Renner AKA Hawkeye.

As the Black Widow trailer came to the surface for the fans, the viewers were left with raised eyebrows. A scene in the trailer left the viewers thinking that the taskmaster for this movie may be Hawkeye. The scene emerges with the introduction of a taskmaster who arises from the car top, with a bow and an arrow in an eerily similar stance. The same stance that Hawkeye is famous for. The movements of the antagonist mirror those of Clint Barton’s.


The Black Widow movie is set right after the period of the civil war from the movie Captain America: Civil War. This means that the Black Widow is present in flesh and blood. This means that the rest of the avenger’s crew is also alive. The reason why we think that the Taskmaster is Clint Barton is that Clint has very good experience in getting himself brainwashed.
