First Look at Batroc the Leaper in ‘Falcon & The Winter Soldier’
Falcon and the Winter Soldier has finally entered production again. Alongside it, we are getting a few more screenshots from the set. This time, it seems to confirm the appearance of a strongly rumored character from MCU’s past. Back in March, the Weekly Planet podcast reported that George St-Pierre might return as Batroc the Leaper. He first appeared in Captain America: The Winter Soldier during the opening sequence. Now, as production resumes we got our first look at him in costume for the Disney+ series. As we can’t share pictures here, you can check them out by clicking here.
At first glance, it’s a great rendition of the character’s costume from the comics. The colors combined with the shirt-jacket combination is a simple but great way to reinvent his previous adaptation. Hopefully, we get a lot more from him throughout this series than we did in Winter Soldier. Also, can we just talk about how amazing Emily VanCamp looks in that suit? If they are being filmed together, it may be an attack on her by the mercenaries. Most likely, Zemo orchestrated the attack to get his message across. It will be interesting to see how this fits into Falcon and Winter Soldiers’ overarching story.
