Just got off the phone with my Marvel source who gave me an Exclusive scoop…
I’ve been told that mixed martial artist and current UFC Welterweight Champion, Georges St-Pierre aka GSP has been cast in Marvel’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier”.
GSP will play one of the villains, Batroc the Leaper!!!
If true, this role will continue to expand the GSP brand. He's arguably already the most marketable fighter in MMA. Of additional interest is the release date for this movie: April 2014. I would assume that means filming will begin this summer. It will be interesting to see if filming the movie will conflict with the UFC plans for his next fight. Again, if this is true, I'm anxious to see how the UFC handles the matter in relation to Rampage starring in "The A-Team." As MMA becomes more popular the UFC would be wise to realize their fighters will get more of these opportunities.
