Has Captain America: The Winter Soldier Jumped Off Track?

If the hard partying El Mayimbe is to be believed, then yes.



Source: LatinoReview

El Mayimbe, the hard partying scoopster at Latino Review, is reporting that MMA fighter Georges St-Pierre will be playing Batroc the Leaper in Captain America: The Winter Soldier.  If his scoop is to be believed, this means that we'll officially be watching a movie featuring a Frenchman hopping around like a kangaroo.

Let's run down the facts:

1)  Batroc the Leaper is the lamest supervillain in Marvel's catalog.  He's a French jumper with no superpowers besides his outlandish moustache and his "well-developed leg muscles."

2)  Georges St-Pierre is a scary dude.  Who speaks French. 

3)  Barring a radical reinvention, this might beat out Rocket Racoon as the weirdest comic book character to ever be put into a movie. Batroc is really that lame.  He's called Batroc the fucking Leaper for cryin' out loud.

4)  There will be at least one person in the comments, probably over the age of 35, who will think that Batroc isn't that lame. 

So why are we believing El Mayimbe on this?  Because no one in their right minds would make up a rumor involving Batroc. 

If this isn't a sign the Apocalypse is coming, I don't know what is.  So, look out, Cap!  There's a Frenchman jumping at you with well-developed leg muscles.  Ooo la la!

I don't see the point of Batroc in the film if they already have Crossbones-who is way cooler than Batroc will ever be.

Heck, most of Dearedvil's 60's rogue's gallery sucks worse than Batroc.

I know the article was referring to Chappy, and I'm not over 35, but I'm gonna pre-emptively get his back: screw you. Batroc is awesome.

Batroc was never meant to be cool. He's pretty much a joke character.

(But don't underestimate him. He's a savate master.)

If Batroc does show up in the Marvel Filmverse, he isn't going to be much like the character in the comics*, especially if some non-actor is playing him. He'll be some kick-boxing bad ass sicced on Cap by the movie's main villain.


*Which stinks, because Batroc is awesome.

Best comment about this on my twitter (you'll have to know MMA to get the joke I guess):

"GSP to play badguy in Captain America: Winter Soldier Me: a 25 min scene of GSP sitting on Captain America?"

It's actually spelled "Batroc ze Lepair!"
The witness said Mr Brown then called out to Ms Hay's adult daughter: "Look at this, I'm tittie-f***ing your mother!".

You'd be a better fit for The Swordsman anyways.
