A couple of months ago, prior to Black Widow’s delay, O-T Fagbenle made an Instagram post using a hashtag that gave away that he was playing Taskmaster in the movie. The post was quickly removed, but not before his linked Twitter account Tweeted a copy of it. Now comes video of him talking about Taskmaster.
Today he did an Instagram live stream with a friend of his where he discussed how he got his role in Black Widow, and at the end he said, “There’s a whole conspiracy theory that I’m Taskmaster.” His friend replied, “you probably are”, which made him reply “you’re trying to get it out as well? I thought we spoke about this, I thought we were going to keep some s*** on the DL”.
You can see that exchange around the six-minute mark in the linked Instagram video.
Even though there are still people out there wanting Rachel Weisz to secretly be Taskmaster in the movie, this makes the second time O-T Fagbenle seemingly confirmed that he’s playing the character.
