The Falcon and the Winter Soldier Brings Back Georges St-Pierre as Batroc
Marvel Studios’ The Falcon and the Winter Soldier didn’t make its August premiere date as originally planned. But even though the coronavirus pandemic got in the way, the production seems to be back on track. A few hours ago, Sebastian Stan shared a new image of himself and co-star Anthony Mackie in costume. Now, Just Jared has posted some recent shots from the series’ Atlanta set. More importantly, the pics appear to confirm that Georges St-Pierre is reprising his role as Georges Batroc.
St-Pierre made his MCU debut as Batroc (known in the comics as Batroc the Leaper) in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. He appeared in the film’s opening fight scene onboard the hijacked S.H.I.E.L.D. ship. Batroc also showed off his acrobatic skills as he battled Steve Rogers. St-Pierre’s background as a former UFC champion made him an ideal choice for the role. His upcoming appearance in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier will mark the first time MCU fans have seen him since The Winter Soldier premiered in 2014.
Additionally, Just Jared captured new photos of Emily VanCamp as Sharon Carter, who last appeared in Captain America: Civil War. Also returning from that film is Daniel Brühl as Baron Zemo, this time wearing Zemo’s signature purple mask from the comics. Prior to the shutdown, Stan revealed that The Falcon and the Winter Soldier had “two or three weeks” of filming left before the pandemic hit. It remains to be seen whether the show will debut before the year is over.
Disney+ has yet to set a new premiere date for The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.
