    Default Georges St-Pierre to Play Batroc the Leaper in Captain America 2

    [QUOTE=Latino Review reports that the second- (third-?) tier Marvel villain will play a part in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Mixed martial artist and UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St-Pierre (GSP) will play Batroc, who presumably will serve as a henchman for the bigger villain of the piece (who we still don't have confirmation on, do we?).

    Batroc is a French mercenary and kickboxer specialist who has mostly appeared in Cap comics over the years. You gotta figure his movie version will be toned down to not look too much like the below image, right?[/QUOTE]

    I think this is great casting! There's nobody more of the French Alpha Athlete than GSP. As far as the main villain... um, the title is called Captain America: The Winter Soldier. For those unfamiliar, The Winter Soldier is one of Cap's bigger enemies. Should be another great movie. Marvel has been putting out some really nice films as of late with thoughtful casting, rather than putting popular actors in the roles to sell tickets over the acting/story portion of it.

    I'm excited to see what GSP's got on a major motion picture. It sounds like his fighting career is winding down, so this'll be great for him to get his foot in the door.

    Vrrooom! Vrroooom!
