In an unexpected casting announcement today, Latino-Review just announced that Marvel has cast mixed martial artist and current UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St. Pierre as Batroc the Leaper. Yeah, I’m as surprised as you. Batroc has been a mainstay villain for Captain America over the years, but hasn’t really been considered a mainstream one. So it looks like Batroc will be joining Crossbones (Frank Grillo) as two of the films villains. Captain America: The Winter Soldier will be released on April 4th, 2014. (Source: Latino-Review)
