While we still don’t know much about the overall plot of Marvel’s upcoming first Disney Plus series, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, there’s been some pretty interesting stuff popping up over the last few days, such as those set videos of Wyatt Russell and Sebastian Stan as U.S. Agent and the Winter Soldier in action, and the (possible) confirmation that Battlestar will appear. And now, thanks to a new report, we may have another cool bit of news – in the form of a returning face.
According to The Weekly Planet podcast – who were the first to report that Matt Damon would cameo in Thor: Ragnarok – Batroc the Leaper is set to return in the series. Batroc last appeared in 2014’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier played by Geores St-Pierre, where he fought with Steve Rogers aboard the Lemurian Star ship. It’s unclear what role Batroc would play in this series, but it’s possible he could be allied with Zemo – or perhaps he’ll be encountered by the heroes at Madripoor?
As always, take this report with a grain of salt, but it’s not the first time Batroc’s name has popped up in leaks and rumors, so I’d say there’s a reasonable chance this one ends up being true. Personally, I’m really excited to see Batroc again, and think it’s a great callback to the film that Sam Wilson debuted in.
