MMA Fans Rejoice: GSP Will Be In CAPTAIN AMERICA: WINTER SOLDIER!

Georges St-Pierre (GSP), the French Canadian and current UFC welterweight champion will be in Marvel's CAPTAIN AMERICA: WINTER SOLDIER according to Latino-review - who have an excellent track record with Marvel scoops. So I believe it. They also confirm that Robert Redford has been cast as "Pierce".

Back to GSP - He will be playing a bad guy known as Batroc the Leaper:

Batroc has no superhuman abilities, but is in peak physical condition in every respect. He is an Olympic-level weightlifter and has extraordinary agility and reflexes. His leg muscles are particularly well-developed which enables him to leap great distances with the strength of an Olympic athlete. He is an expert hand-to-hand combatant and specializes in savate (French-style kickboxing). He is also a skilled military tactician, having formerly been in the French Foreign Legion.

Batroc is an experienced thief and smuggler, who also speaks French and English. Although, as a mercenary, he does not hesitate to perform any number of criminal acts for his clients, Batroc has, by his own rights, a strong sense of honor, and he will turn against any client whom he feels has unfairly deceived him into committing crimes to which he might not otherwise have agreed.

Once, Batroc came into conflict with Captain America when he believed he was dying from the breakdown of the Super Soldier serum. Batroc, moved by the Captain’s sense of “honor,” declared that he would concede defeat and grant Cap’s desire. Cap wished that just one of his former enemies would turn away from his life of crime. Genuinely moved, Batroc declared he would do this. However, Batroc soon returned to his mercenary/criminal activities.

So, GSP is in the movies now! He certainly has the physique to play an action character, no doubt - but does he have the acting chops? We'll soon find out! More when I get it.

CAPTAIN AMERICA: WINTER SOLDIER opens on April 4, 2014.
