Georges St-Pierre ‘Batroc the Leaper’ Wraps Filming On CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER

While Captain America star Chris Evans tweets about sharing a scene with Georges St-Pierre, the Batroc the Leaper martial artist has confirmed that he’s completed filming for The Winter Soldier!

Promoting his first book last night, martial artist Georges St-Pierre visited UFC Tonight where he briefly discussed his first movie role, Georges Batroc, in Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
“I’m done filming, I was there for a week. It was a lot of fun I made a lot of new friends. My character is a French mercenary, speaks French, a martial arts expert of Savate, [and an] Olympic lifting champion. A little bit like a guy who can jump really high and stuff. The character fit me well. My new look [rigt now] was for the Captain America movie, I just molded it a bit different than my character was a week ago. [During filming] it looked much more sinister.”

Given that Georges St-Pierre only completed a week’s worth of filming, we should assume Batroc the Leaper will not feature heavily in Captain America: The Winter Soldier; there’s much more filming that will occur in Cleveland, Ohio as well as Washington, DC. We can also assume that Chris Evans is among the aforementioned “friends” that Georges gained during the production; last week, the Captain America star tweeted: “I fought GSP last night. What would normally have resulted in a trip to the emergency room, was actually an amazing experience. GREAT guy!”











“Captain America: The Winter Soldier” picks up where “Marvel’s The Avengers” left off, as Steve Rogers struggles to embrace his role in the modern world and teams up with Natasha Romanoff, aka Black Widow, to battle a powerful yet shadowy enemy in present-day Washington, D.C. Starring Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Cobie Smulders, Frank Grillo, Georges St-Pierre, Hayley Atwell, Toby Jones, Emily VanCamp and Maximiliano Hernández with Samuel L. Jackson and Robert Redford, “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” is directed by the team of Anthony and Joe Russo from a screenplay written by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely and is based on the ever-popular Marvel comic book series, first published in 1941. Marvel Studios’ President Kevin Feige is producing the film. Executive producers on the project include Alan Fine, Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Michael Grillo and Stan Lee. The creative production team on the film includes director of photography Trent Opaloch, production designer Peter Wenham, editors Jeffrey Ford, A.C.E. and Mary Jo Markey, A.C.E. and three time Oscar®-nominated costume designer Judianna Makovsky. “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” is set for release on April 4, 2014. In addition to “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” Marvel Studios will release a slate of films based on other iconic Marvel characters including “Iron Man 3” on May 3, 2013; “Thor: The Dark World ” on November 8, 2013; “Guardians of the Galaxy” on August 1, 2014; “Marvel's The Avengers” sequel on May 1, 2015; and “Ant-Man” on November 6, 2015!

That was fast
TheOneAboveAll - 4/24/2013, 9:39 AM
So I finally am quick enough to see a post by futuredays...
Dinotron - 4/24/2013, 9:39 AM
Chris Evans is lucky that the fight wasnt real
TheOneAboveAll - 4/24/2013, 9:40 AM
@Nomis
I found you! I didn't know you played soccer for my favorite soccer team Bayern Munich!
Godzillafart - 4/24/2013, 9:40 AM
Can't you ban this guys IP address?
GreenLanternFan - 4/24/2013, 9:42 AM
Dang it futuredays, I read all the complaints about you and hadn't seen one of your posts yet...gah...it's a sweet spoiler, but come on man...write an article and label it as a SPOILER if you want to say something
Dinotron - 4/24/2013, 9:43 AM
I wonder will he go by the Leaper.. it would be so cheesy
Captain: Who are you supposed to be?
Leaper: I'm the Leaper, Batroc the Leaper!
Captain: ...

@Dinotron
Seems like he recognized that in his quote.
m0th3r - 4/24/2013, 9:45 AM
@Dinotron O yea, my main worry is that he is such an in shape dude (looks like a real life cap) he will make Evans look too small..

@Godzillafart ISPs tend to flush IPs based on time schedule, and some services allow people to keep their IP dynamic based on were they enter n like little private tunnel, so its harder then you would think.
InfiniteMonkey - 4/24/2013, 9:45 AM
I'd whoop his ass!

Good for him.
RedSkull667 - 4/24/2013, 9:50 AM
Is Futuredays an X-Man fanatic? Makes sense
Dinotron - 4/24/2013, 9:51 AM
Honestly we dont know how good of shape Chris is, we have heard hear say but Chris hasnt posted any shirtless pics

Now i will say that overall Chris does keep his shape, im just interested if he bulked up anymore
Dinotron - 4/24/2013, 9:54 AM
@AlbertPooHoles

hahaha your crazy bro!
Shamo - 4/24/2013, 9:59 AM
Bautista as Drax, this guy as Batroc. next up, Shaq as Luke Cage.
ParisSun - 4/24/2013, 10:00 AM
Well, you never know what amount of film time that is. I suspect that he will not feature heavily in this movie. But whole tv episodes are filmed in less than a week. We know there will be a fight scene but maybe if GSP does well, he may be featured more in Cap 3.
ruadh - 4/24/2013, 10:03 AM
True...a week is actually pretty good, especially if their setups are quick. He could be in a third of the movie.
TheRedSkull - 4/24/2013, 10:06 AM
I'm so excited for this movie. If only there was a way to show the Howling Commando's again, although they're dead now.

Maybe we'll see a prequel set in the war sometime, hell even a one shot
marvelstudios - 4/24/2013, 10:06 AM
GSP is one of my favourite mma fighters right now. Can't wait to see him fighting Captain America.
marvelstudios - 4/24/2013, 10:11 AM
@earzmundo

GSP vs Jones??? You do realise Jones is a LHW and GSP is a WW??
m0th3r - 4/24/2013, 10:12 AM
@Shamo ROFL...YES.....he ROCKED as Steel... ;)
m0th3r - 4/24/2013, 10:15 AM
@ParisSun Your probably right...I figure 2-3 scenes, w/ one action. Short intro scene (background muscle guy), Flex Scene (beats up a few SHIELD agents), and then fights Cap...OR maybe Falcon...
Killuminatic - 4/24/2013, 10:15 AM
I've heard there's going to be a huge rivalry between Crossbones and Winter Soldier... If so, I'd love an intense and suspenseful, third act, hand-to-hand fight scene between Cap, Bucky and Crossbones. Reminiscent to the final fight in The Raid. But larger in scale obviosuly.
Killuminatic - 4/24/2013, 10:24 AM
obviously* fack...
Sephiroth - 4/24/2013, 10:33 AM
@Nomis nice!
AlexDeLarge87 - 4/24/2013, 10:38 AM
Still no word of Baron Zemo or Alexander Lukin.

I wonder are the villains just going to be Winter Soldier, Crossbones and Batroc?
AlexDeLarge87 - 4/24/2013, 10:38 AM
Oh and Arnim Zola.
marvelstudios - 4/24/2013, 10:58 AM
Random question:

Is there a reason why the MCU Phase 2 movies don't have the Marvel Studios logo in the start of their movies and trailers?? They seem to only have the Marvel logo, minus the 'Studios' bit.
RetroFit - 4/24/2013, 11:03 AM
I can't wait to see GSP as a mustache-twirling villain! I also hope they keep Crossbones' mask on the entire movie! I'm so sick of seeing these actors go without masks and helmets. Do the studios think we're stupid and can't recognize the characters if we can't directly see the actors? Spider-Man is the worst for that. But Spawn really set the table for all this to happen. And don't get me started on Thor! MORE HELMET! MORE MASKS!
knocturnalzen10 - 4/24/2013, 11:09 AM
must have been a tune up fight for cap like GSP's last actual UFC fight smh
TheCaptain - 4/24/2013, 11:32 AM
I wonder how he'll look in the movie.
DioFoRio - 4/24/2013, 11:32 AM
Hope GSP doesn't just sit on top of Cap and make it a boring fight by trying to wrestle him and not finishing...Still love GSP though!
DioFoRio - 4/24/2013, 11:33 AM
" I am Not empressssed by Youar Pearformaince"
LordoftheThrones26 - 4/24/2013, 11:43 AM
Oh Yeah! But who is the main baddie? Winter Soldier, Crossbones, Batroc and even Zola are more henchmen villains I hope we get to see a more menacing villain as the guy whos pulling the strings maybe Zemo or Strucker?
DioFoRio - 4/24/2013, 12:42 PM
@NOMIS L M F A O!!!! That is so funny...dude looks wronged at the end.
aztecRaingod - 4/24/2013, 3:57 PM
" What would normally have resulted in a trip to the emergency room, was actually an amazing experience"


Im glad Cap went easy on him ! =p

@FIRG

Brudda...I'll whip you up some poutine...it'll blow ya mind!
DioFoRio - 4/24/2013, 8:24 PM
funny how fancy poutine sounds till you realize it's fries curd and gravy...daMN French canadians make junk food sound sexay.
MightyZeus - 4/24/2013, 10:28 PM
So anticipated for the winter soldier. I wonder what this dudes costume will look like in the film.
loki668 - 4/25/2013, 4:55 AM
Unfortunately, Batroc's costume was only a purple thong and some flip flops. I hear they're trying for the "most awkward and uncomfortable grappling scene ever" award.
