The film revealed that Olga Kurylenko, who is best known for portraying Camille in the James Bond movie Quantum of Solace, played the Taskmaster. Recently Kurylenko spoke with ComicBook.com and opened up about wearing the Taskmaster costume. She said that playing the Taskmaster requires a lot of skills and is not easy to do all the stunts. She wished she could do all the stunts herself but had to take the help of stunt double. She said that she loves doing stunts and loves martial arts, that she enjoys it personally. She wished to do everything herself, but the costume did not allow her. The Taskmaster costume did not allow her to move easily as it is bulky and heavy and it feels hot inside. She also added that it took her sometime to get used to the costume and she needed more than one person to help her out, so one cannot wear the costume all alone. Then there is the makeup. The makeup would take long hours to be done. But the end look comes together really great, with the makeup and costume. She said that she has never played a character which is cool and complex at the same time so she is very excited for the movie. While talking about the future of her character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Kurylenko said that there are many possibilities about the future of the character and this is what makes the character even more interesting.
