Taskmaster Rights Back At Marvel Studios

Taskmaster Rights Back At Marvel Studios

At one point in time, 20th Century Fox possessed the film rights to Taskmaster but it would appear that the supervillain/anti-hero is now back home at Marvel Studios. How long before he shows up in the MCU? Is he a better fit for the Marvel films or Netflix shows?

Don't hold your brief for Ryan Reynolds Deadpool to take on Taskmaster in a sequel.  Reportedly, when Daredevil rights returned to Marvel Studios, the film rights to Taskmaster were part of the package.  It's kind of a shame that Fox had the rights to Taskmaster for as long as they had Daredevil's film rights but never did anything with him.  How long will it be before S.H.I.E.L.D. or A.I.M. (are they still around?) hires Anthony 'Taskmaster' Masters?

Blessed with execptional athlesticism, it's Taskmaster's 'photographic relfexes' that make him a real threat.  This ability allows him to copy the physical abilities of some of the Marvel Universes' most gifted and agile heroes and villains such as Spider-Man, Daredevil, Deadpool, Captain America, etc.
