    but I have to admit, I never thought the Taskmaster would appear in a film.

I thought about Taskmaster when I tried to figure out who could be the personal nemeses of Black Widow ...

5 villains came to mind : Yelena Belova (who may appear in the movie), Melina Vostokoff / Iron Maiden (ditto), Alexei Shostakov / Red Guardian (ditto), Viper/Madame Hydra (one version already appeared in Agents of SHIELD) and, then, Snapdragon (an obscure character).

Otherwise, besides these five villains, she encountered many forgotten minor villains but she doesn't have what could be called a memorable rogues gallery ...

Then, I thought about Taskmaster, Crossfire, Spymaster, Constrictor or the Serpent Society ... because they are the "Boba Fetts of the Marvel Universe".
I thought that Taskmaster could be interesting because he is an Avengers villain who can replicate the combat skills of Hawkeye, Captain America & Nick Fury.

    His abilities rely too much on WORDS to get the idea across. (There almost always needs to be a caption or a bit of dialogue telling us he's kicking like Batroc or punching like Cap or doing whatever like whomever.) I'll be interested to see how the movie gets the idea across.

On the Heroes TV show, Monica Dawson has the same power than Taskmaster. \:\-\)
