MCU fans already know this character. After all, he has first introduced in Captain America: The Winter Soldier where he hijacked a SHIELD vessel. It was later suggested that Batroc was actually hired by Nick Fury to hijack the vessel so Natasha Romanoff could recover data from Project Insight.


Knowing Batroc, he and the LAF terrorist group had probably been hired yet again to inflict some damage. But who is pulling the strings this time? There are speculations that Batroc is now employed by Baron Zemo although he never gave up a name.

For now, Batroc's alliances may not be clear but there is little doubt we'll see more of him in the upcoming episodes of The Falcon and The Winter Soldier. Let's hope that Sam Wilson and Bucky Barnes will manage to stop him before it's too late.

The Falcon and The Winter Soldier Episode 1 is now streaming on Disney+.
