We know that Civil War villain Baron Zemo will be making a return in The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, but it looks like one more Captain America baddie is going to be coming back for the show.
JustJared has shared some set photos that feature Georges St-Pierre a.k.a. Batroc the Leaper from Captain America: The Winter Soldier. We don’t know what Batroc’s role is in the movie, you can see him donning his classic comic colors of purple and yellow—just like he did in Winter Soldier.
Though he wasn’t in most of the film, he still made for one memorable stand-off with Chris Evans’ Captain America:
Hopefully this time we can actually see more of his ‘Leaper’ abilities. Maybe they can have him in a Parkour chase in some scene, but I guess that would be too repetitive of the chase from Civil War. It would be great if we could see this OG Captain America villain actually be a threat in some way.
For now, production has once again restarted for The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, but we don’t know when the series is set to come out. Originally, it was said that Disney was planning on release TFATWS last August, but everything had to be delayed thanks to COVID-19. Now it’s possible the series could release this December, but I guess we’ll have to wait and see if Disney eventually delays Black Widow.
No release date has been set for The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, but Black Widow is looking at a Nov. 6 release date.
