Black Widow Star O. T. Fagbenle Has Revealed Details About His Mysterious Character

Of course, we already know that the actor’s character Mason (who is rumoured to be villain Taskmaster, by the way), is Black Widow’s old SHIELD colleague and a romantic interest has been talked about.

Elaborating a bit about what we can expect, Fagbenle admitted that the two characters “have a bit of a vibe going on”.

“Mason is a finder for people who aren’t so affiliated with armies, like people who are part of the underworld,” he said in Marvel’s Black Widow: The Official Movie Special Book (via ComicBook). “He can find anything you need as well.

“He’s had a relationship doing that work for the Black Widow, and they have a bit of a vibe going on. There’s a sense that there’s more to their relationship than it being purely work-related, so that’s always in the mix.”

Teasing their relationship further, he continued: “Mason’s story starts when Natasha is trying to escape, and she needs a place to hide out. So we hang out for a little bit. And then later on, when she gets in trouble, she calls me up again. I help her out with a Chinook.

“If you need a helicopter, I’m the guy to ask, and then again every time she’s in trouble, she calls me… Mason is the guy that you want on your side if you get into a hard corner.

“Natasha definitely takes advantage of the opportunities for him to provide certain things – she never really pays with cash and she doesn’t have credit either. She’s always like, ‘Yeah, put it on my tab.’ It’s a pretty long tab by now! I’m a giver.”

Black Widow has a May 7, 2021 release date.
