Batroc the Leaper Rumored to Return in The Falcon and The Winter Soldier

The Falcon and The Winter Soldier is really shaping up to be a fourth Captain America movie, with the series featuring the return of Baron Zemo from Civil War and other characters connected to Cap. One who may be returning is Batroc the Leaper.

The rumor came from the Weekly Planet Podcast, and while they don’t normally post “scoops” they did correctly report on Matt Damon showing up in Thor Ragnarok. But this actually isn’t the first time Batroc popped up in connection to the series, about a week or so ago a post on 4Chan appeared claiming that Batroc would show up in a scene set in Madripoor along with other minor villains and mercenaries such as the Mutant Omega Red.

As for Batroc himself, Georges St-Pierre made a post on Instagram a month ago teasing work on a new project, and that’s when The Falcon and The Winter Soldier was still being filmed.

Still, it’s just a rumor but one that makes a lot of sense; even if it’s just a background cameo in the Madripoor scene.
