I hope he doesn't get killed off, there's always potential for a character like this.

I love Batroc. He's a cold hearted mercenary motivated strictly by money, but The Leaper has a strict honor code and has occasionally switched sides and fought along Mon Capitan. I'd love to see him on AOS.

I pretty much just expect him to give Cap a decent fight, be defeated and then incarcerated.

Honestly I want it to be the Captain America cinematic equivalent of Indy shooting the swordsman from Raiders. I want Batroc to show up, do some cool moves than slip on a banana peel and knock himself out.

Batroc works best when he's the butt of the joke.

I like this idea, and it's the perfect kinda integration for Agents of SHIELD to have with the movies. Have Bartoc be a minor character in the movie, then resurface as a prominent threat for an episode or two of the TV series.

I hope we see Batroc again. He could show again in AoS working for a villain.

Cap and Batroc's dynamic is rather devoid of true animosity.

Basically, they think of fighting each other as part of the job, as opposed to it being anything personal.

There was a story where Cap was dying due to serum decay, and Batroc popped in for one final friendly chat.

That wouldn't be the kind of thing you bring in one of the best MMA fighters of all time for.

He should get his own movie. It could be the first MCU French film. Apart from any fighting, he could introduce us to French cuisine. It should be shot completely like a French movie too.

The fight was pretty cool, but I sort of expected Batroc to, I dunno, leap.

I honestly thought we were in for some Cap/Batroc parkour or something.

Ah well.

Yeah, when he was announced as a character I thought we'd get a big foot chase scene between him and Cap.

Maybe they're saving it for the sequel.

I was hoping that Cap would chase him through a construction site and then onto a crane high above the water, eventually leading to an African French Algerian embassy.

When I saw him in the preview , my 1st reaction was : "a French guy with a French Canadian accent? WTF " (I live in Montreal)

After watching the movie it's even worse : "an Algerian with a French Canadian accent? "


I'm Algerian, so having an Algerian villain in the movie was kinda cool

I loved GSPs part! and the surprised looks on Cap's face when he saw this wasn't going to be as easy of a fight as he thought. I think he gained some respect for Batroc there.

Batroc messed up telling him to drop the shield. He was hanging with him until that point.
