Earlier today, Marvel revealed five images from their upcoming Captain American sequel entitled The Winter Soldier. One of those images gave us our first look at former UFC welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre in costume as Marvel villain Batroc the Leaper. Check it out below.
St. Pierre announced late last year that he’d be taking an indefinite leave from the sport of mixed martial arts and even vacated his title after beating Johny Hendricks via a split decision (of the controversial variety) at UFC 167 in November. St. Pierre had defended that very title successfully on 9 consecutive occasions before hanging up his gloves.
It’s unknown whether or not St. Pierre will return to the cage to compete again. Since vacating his title he has been very vocal in voicing his displeasure with the company he put on the map in Canada and their stance on drug testing. If he does come back he’ll likely face whomever emerges champion when Johny Hendricks faces off against Robbie Lawler at UFC 171 in Dallas for the coveted title he left behind. For now, enjoy this trailer for his upcoming major motion picture debut.
