With less than a month for the season 3 premiere of [Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.](tag:722469), there's a lot of theory that the New Main Villain and former SHIELD turn HYDRA agent Grant Ward is the marvel cinematic version of Taskmaster (real name Tony Master) and I'm gonna give four reason:
1. His absence on S.H.I.E.L.D. #1
The Issue was the first appearance of Melinda May, Jenna Simmons and Leo Fitz to the Marvel Comics Universe of Earth 616 all except for Skye and Ward (since the former turned out to be the mcu version of Daisy Johnson aka Quake in the mid season finale of s2 last year) even thought this was released after Ward revealed himself as an double agents.
2. Both used to work on S.H.I.E.L.D. before becoming evil
Both used to be SHIELD Agent before making an heel face turn although the TM does become an ally with the organization as the training instructor especially in the current Spider-Man animated series on Disney XD.
3. Taskmaster is Captain America villain in the comic's
It make sense to introduce him in the MCU since he's one of Captain rogue gallery on the comic's.
4. Taskmaster unmasked (you won't believe who he look like)
Believe or not that's really TM unmasked without the hooded skull face and he really does resemble Ward, this is the reason of the speculation whether or not he's the the taskmaster of MCU like Skye is to Quake on the universe.
