Georges St-Pierre to Play "Batroc the Leaper" in CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER

So it seems Montreal`s favorite UFC champion George St-Pierre is set to be cast in the big Hollywood Captain America sequel "Captain America: The Winter Soldier". He will be playing the role of "Batroc the Leaper" a villain to combat against Captain America. Here is a small synopsis by Marvel of what Batroc the Leaper is all about.

"Batroc has no superhuman powers, but he is one of the most formidable unarmed combatants in the world. He has mastered numerous martial arts and is perhaps the world’s leading master of savate, the French art of foot-fighting. He is an accomplished thief and smuggler with extensive military training. He currently carries a pair of whip-canes, which he uses with great skill."

Now the real question is will Batroc the Leaper knock Captain America out or go for a 5 round decision win?

Captain America: The Winter Soldier opens April 4th 2014.
