Disney+'s Falcon And The Winter Soldier Adds Captain America Movie Villain - Report
Former UFC fighter Georges St-Pierre is suiting back up as his MCU character Batroc for The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, based on new photos from the show's set.
A familiar face from Captain America's past is making his way to the Disney+ series Falcon and the Winter Soldier, if new photos from the show's set are to be believed. According to new images from JustJared, filming has resumed on the series, after being halted due to the COVID-19 pandemic earlier this year. What's more, one of the stars of Captain America: The Winter Soldier has been seen on set--in costume.
In the photos, you can see actor/former UFC fighter Georges St-Pierre in costume as Georges Batroc, the mercenary Cap and the team did battle with at the beginning of The Winter Soldier. The character, known as Batroc the Leaper in the comics, is a master of savate (French kickboxing) and has yet to appear anywhere else in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It looks like that will be changing soon.
Also seen on set was Emily VamCamp, who appeared in both The Winter Soldier and Captain America: Civil War as Sharon Carter/Agent 13. You might remember her as not only Steve Rogers' (Chris Evans) love interest, but also the niece of his other love interest--it's complicated.
You can check out all of the photos from the set at the link above. It remains to be seen how major a role either character will play in the first season of Falcon and the Winter Soldier. As of now, a release date for the Disney+ original series has not been given.
