Georges St-Pierre To Play A Heavy in “Captain America: The Winter Soldier”

Latino Review

Just got off the phone with my Marvel source who gave me an Exclusive scoop…

I’ve been told that mixed martial artist and current UFC Welterweight Champion, Georges St-Pierre aka GSP has been cast in Marvel’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier”.

GSP will play one of the villains, Batroc the Leaper!!! (Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Cinema, Georges St-Pierre)

Ughhhh...for real?

Why? Can someone shed some light on this "Leaper" character? Is he french with broken english?

quick look online

"Georges Batroc was born in Marseille, France, and served in the French Foreign Legion. He is a French costumed mercenary who specializes in savate (also known as "La Boxe Française"), a form of kickboxing"

look like you are clueless about the character.

As a casual MMA fan, I like GSP, he has charisma and great attitude, yet can he act? not sure.

Might not need him to act per-se look at Kung Lee in Iron Fists..was there mostly for show and fighting.

Same can be for GSP...just show his face for the MMA fans and have him whoop some butt and they will be happy and the story can continue without having so much emphasis on him.

I get what you're saying but then what's the point of even introducing him in the first place if he's really more of a cameo type appearance.

GSP will lay on Captain America for 2 hours ;P
Hergula  +   827d ago
Thats true and I agree. He would be perfect for fight-scenes as he has some really nice moves that would look perfect on film.

I've heard a lot of people complaining about why marvel is hiring WWE/UFC fighters is cause actors aren't in shape and are to scared to do their own stunts.

UFC/WWE fighters are probably some of the most fit people in the world.

If anyone here has actually read Ed Brubakers entire Cap "winter soldier" death/rebirth run, you'd be pretty familiar with Batroc.

Yeah however ridiculous he sounds and look , Batroc is actually an awesome fighter . And he'll probably look less silly in movie

Definitely an out-of-the-box decision.

GSP is my favorite mma fighter seeing him in a film would be great, the first captain america film was ok but it wasnt entertaining enough if you compared it to its marvel counterparts like iron man, thor and incredible hulk, i hope this sequel is making necessary steps to make this film both entertaining and solid plotwise.
