Marvel villain Batroc the Leaper (above) is getting ready to make his debut in the MCU, with UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St-Pierre stepping in to portray him. The brainchild of Stan Lee & Jack Kirby, Georges Batroc (aka The Leaper) comes from a military background in the French Foreign Legion, and is a master thief / hired gun. While he doesn't possess any superpowers per se, he does know how to Kick-Box. Like really, really well! (Sounds like Lee & Kirby were having an off day to us.) For those that don't follow UFC, here's a pic of Georges St-Pierre kicking really, really well...
We'll find out just how Batroc plans to make Cap's life a misery (bet it involves kicking) when THE WINTER SOLDIER opens April 4th 2014. And as for the rest of the MCU action...
