I think this will be great as long as he doesn't have too many lines.  Maybe treat him like they do with Ray Park.

They suffer severe burns on their feet, which likely will need to be amputated?

Batroc?

Really?

What, they couldn't find someone convincing enough to play Brother Nature?

First step towards him being cast as Guile in the Street Fighter reboot.

I remember a comic where Batroc was going after Cap (again) and one of the other D-List bad-guy's asks him "Why do you keep fighting him? He always kicks your ass." Batroc's reply is essentially "Because he's Captain America and just to say that I gave him a run for his money looks good on my bad-guy resume." I like that. He knows he can't beat Cap, but he also knows that Cap is enhanced and he, "The Leaper" is all natural, baby!

/Also, he's one of the 'code of honor' bad guys who frequently switch to helping the heroes when the current mastermind (whoever that may be) goes too far with his 'kill everything' plans.

What next, Courtney Love playing a strung-out whore? Jennifer Hudson playing somebody who really wants to be a famous singer?

The 'Leaper'?   Really?

I sincerely hope they dump the name, at least.

WHY on God's Green Earth is anyone going with *BATROC* for a Captain America movie?


With the whole of the Marvel Universe to pick from, THIS is what you come up with?  Seriously?

 
2013-03-26 02:56:50 PM
I don't care what his costume looks like; I don't care how many lines he has; I don't care if he switches sides mid-movie; but if he doesn't have that glorious 'stache, I'll be disappointed.

Chill, obviously he's not the big bad. They probably won't even say his name out loud.

He will probably just lay and pray all day.

GSP bores me to tears anymore. Great guy. Great ambassador to MMA. Really humble dude.


Fights are now too predictable. I'm gonna take Guile in 5 round decision.

This.  They'll have him on as Georges Batroc, mercenary enforcer for the Big Bad, who switches sides after a suitably heroic speech from Cap reveals the Big Bad's unconscionable depth of True Villainy.

Born in America yes, but his father is half-Japanese and his mother is full Japanese.  Hell, he isn't even blond, he dyes (note his eyebrows).  He's three-quarters Japanese if you wanna get all technical.

More than likely just a minor villain at the beginning of the movie that Cap (or Bucky) beats within five minutes.

Ken's Asian.  Sorry if that offends you somehow.

I don't blame him for doing it, but making movies is usually bad for an MMA career, partly because Dana White doesn't like it.

And Zangief may be the bad guy, but that doesn't make him a  bad guy.


Anyway, I find it funny that they're going to introduce Batroc zee leepair into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This gets my hopes up that we'll see some of the other oddball villains like Mandrill, M.O.D.O.K., Griffin, Red Ghost, and The Ringer.

Honestly, I think it would be hilarious to try to apply The Red Ghost to the cinematic universe. A Russian mad scientist who can turn intangible is easy enough to portray, but then he has those three super-apes who are like his children. A guy with apes is always funny.

I'm still holding out hope for Squirrel Girl, too.

/And DAMMIT, Marvel needs to get a Moon Knight movie going, as well as Heroes for Hire.

Honestly no. The Winter Soldier isn't a top of the food chain kind of villain. If he can even be called a true villain.

I find people's opinions of GSP to be decent indicators of whether they think MMA is a contest of skill or a form of entertainment.  "Boo hoo hoo, GSP is patient, methodical, and an intelligent strategist, who wins a lot. If only he was a trash-talking 'bad boy' who took stupid risks on flashy moves that cause him to lose more often, he'd be a better fighter."

Pretty much.  Just ask Nick Diaz's face if GSP is any good at what he does.

GSP is one of Dana's favorites; he's no-maintenance, he's a wonderful ambassador for the sport, always does the press and charity stuff, and represents the company better than anyone.

If he wants to do a movie, Dana can't really begrudge him that.  As long as it's not holding up a title defense, it should be fine.

I'm sad that Marvel doesn't own the FF movie rights. There is nothing better than a story finishing with a "Then who  was behind it?" and the next panel is Doctor Doom being all hammy and saying "Fools, it is always DOOM who pulls the strings."

Watching MMA since UFC1.

He's boring as shiat and I haven't enjoyed a fight since he was training with Roach for the Koschek fight. You can take your indicator, which is obviously derived rom your hold on his nutsack and keep it.

GSP = No finishes since April 19, 2008.

/Unless you count that time he beat up that guy smaller than him, and then his corner lobbied for a questionable stoppage
