Georges St-Pierre Joins CAPTAIN AMERICA Sequel

Following the huge news of Robert Redford potentially joining the cast of the sequel "Captain America: The Winter Solider", there has been another interesting casting update.

Apparently the Winter Soldier (Bucky Barnes) and Crossbones (Frank Grillo) weren't enough of an opposition for Steve Rogers a.k.a. Captain America (Chris Evans). UFC welterweight champ Georges St-Pierre has now been brought on to finalize the trifecta of villains, and he will be portraying Batroc the Leaper. It appears that the rapper-turned-actor trend is becoming replaced by wrestlers and fighters now.

St-Pierre, commonly referred to in his circles as GSP, will portay Batroc the mercenary and thief. He served in the French Foreign Legion and trained himself in a form of foot boxing. His main abilities were that of a warrior and thief and he would sell his skills to the higher bigger, crossing Captain America's path several times in the comics.

Joe and Anthony Russo are directing the film, working from a script penned by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely. We aren't sure how large of a role Batroc will have, but GSP definitely seems like a good fit for the part.

"Captain America: The Winter Soldier" will hit AMC Theatres on April 4, 2014.

    I see one that's great enough to stand on his own in a flick and I see two generic Super Heroes below him played by descent actors that will suck of no fault of their own. DC Entertainment and Zack piss off Snyder have destroyed any chance of a good Superman flick. It's generic and badly delivered to screen. What a tragedy to finally get to see the big 3 on screen after all these years only to watch them in piss poor dark generic looking outfits and rewritten backgrounds. FAILURE! DC Entertainment needs to pull their heads out of their asses and give us something good besides Dark Knight and Batman. To my point GO MARVEL!!!!!! May we all be laughing at DC Comics in the end for playing this awful prank on the true fans.

    Marvel has nothing to worry about. DC Entertainment has already killed Superman in this so called "Man of Steel" series of movies. Does anyone recall how the first one sucked? That movie in no way other then title had the tone of Superman. DC has shot themselves in the foot far before the release date against Marvel that knows how to build on charactors, respect them, and the fans. Before all this bull crap with revamping I was 100% behind DC Comics. They have proved one bad film over another that Batman is the only one in the JLA they can get right. This knockoff Superman is and was terrible! Wonder Woman will be just as bad or worse being that DC Comics likes to screw around with her origin and costume the most out of any DC charactor since creation. They simply just don't know what the heck they are doing or how to stay true to the roots of these heroes who have endured for 70 plus years. MOS2 may make it at the box office but mark my words it will not in any way be because it's a great flick. Just the hopefuls having to justify to themselves right and wrongs of the contents. It will suck! Line up for Captain America 3 and catch this flick in the red box.

    I've got a Baby Ruth in my coat pocket somewhere... just waiting to eat it. Maybe I'll put in a blender on puree.
