    GSP as Batroc the Leaper???



    Ok, I almost stuck this in the News section, but it won't generate the amount of insane discussion it deserves.

    Various media are reporting that MMA fighter Georges St-Pierre will appear in Captain America 2: The Winter Soldier as Batroc the Leaper, the Savate-fighting French Mercenary.

    http://latino-review.com/2013/03/25/...inter-solider/

    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!!!

    Here is a bit of info on the character.
    Batroc has no superhuman abilities, but is in peak physical condition in every respect. He is an Olympic-level weightlifter and has extraordinary agility and reflexes. His leg muscles are particularly well-developed which enables him to leap great distances with the strength of an Olympic athlete. He is an expert hand-to-hand combatant and specializes in savate (French-style kickboxing). He is also a skilled military tactician, having formerly been in the French Foreign Legion.
    Batroc is an experienced thief and smuggler, who also speaks French and English. Although, as a mercenary, he does not hesitate to perform any number of criminal acts for his clients, Batroc has, by his own rights, a strong sense of honor, and he will turn against any client whom he feels has unfairly deceived him into committing crimes to which he might not otherwise have agreed.

    Once, Batroc came into conflict with Captain America when he believed he was dying from the breakdown of the Super Soldier serum. Batroc, moved by the Captain’s sense of “honor,” declared that he would concede defeat and grant Cap’s desire. Cap wished that just one of his former enemies would turn away from his life of crime. Genuinely moved, Batroc declared he would do this. However, Batroc soon returned to his mercenary/criminal activities.
    “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” will pick up where Marvel’s “The Avengers” leaves off, as Steve Rogers struggles to embrace his role in the modern world. The film stars Chris Evans in the title role and will be directed by brothers Anthony and Joe Russo.


    Okay, I want you to think about this: Batroc the Leaper.

    Batroc the Leaper.



    As the blog io9 opined:
    One more note: If Marvel manages to get Batroc the Leaper on screen before DC/WB manages to get Wonder Woman up there, every movie executive at DC/WB ought to throw themselves into an active volcano for failing so hard at their jobs.

    Which is a nice segue into this photo sure to catch a lot of YMAS attention:


    No, that's not a publicity photo from a DC/WB production of Wonder Woman. That belongs to the porn parody Wonder Woman movie.

    I'm sure you'll all want to chime in on the sexism and feminism discussion raging on the io9 comments: http://io9.com/who-has-the-best-live...he-w-458956801

    There is a single page of Agent X that tells you all you need to know about the Leaper. Unfortunately, it's too big to embed.

    I almost neg repped you for that!!!!!!

    Batroc is one of the most underrated underutilized minor villains. Next to Crossbones he is one of my favorite Cap villains. Respect the Leaper or get a foot in the face!!!

    Fun Fact: both GSP and Batroc's first name is George. Adds nothing but now you know.
