Georges St-Pierre reprises his role as Batroc the Leaper in new photos from the set of the Disney Plus series The Falcon and The Winter.
The Falcon and The Winter Soldier is already one of the most interesting of the upcoming Marvel Studios projects and these set photos definitely prove it. Earlier today, Just Jared dropped a fresh batch of photos from the set of the series and it had a major reveal: the return of Georges St-Pierre as Batroc the Leaper. Batroc was last seen in 2014’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier, going straight to prison after a major beat down from Steve Rogers.
After the huge five-year time jump in Avengers: Endgame, it appears Batroc is out of prison and up against Emily VanCamp’s Agent 13. The photos don’t really reveal much about Batroc’s role in the series, but fans are really psyched to see more. You can check them out below.
