Diamond Select Black Widow Movie Taskmaster Action Figure
Not to be a whiner...and we've gotten something like THREE Marvel movies a year for a while now....but....this wait for the Black Widow movie....IS.THE.LONGEST.EVERRRR. I'm telling people it's a plot against women. Follow me into hell. ANYYYWAY...yes, the movie is pushed back to (hopefully) brighter times when we can sit next to each other in movie theaters again, but the march of the little plastic men continues on! Diamond Select gives us new toys to look forward to as they reveal their snazzy new Taskmaster action figure, ready to get his ass handed to him by our favorite Marvel Comics red head.

We’re all sad that the Black Widow movie has been postponed until fall, but one thing hasn’t been postponed – the next Marvel Select action figure, based on the film!

The one-hour drama series based on the 2016 novel by Matt Ruff, follows Atticus Black as he joins his friend Letitia and his Uncle George to embark on a road trip across 1950s Jim Crow America in search of his missing father. What follows is a struggle to survive and overcome both the racist terrors of white America and the terrifying monsters that could be ripped from an H.P. Lovecraft paperback.
