Earlier this week, it was announced that UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre has been cast as a villain in the upcoming Marvel movie sequel Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
Apropos to his French Canadian roots, St-Pierre will play the French and English-speaking Batroc the Leaper, an expert smuggler who has no superhuman abilities but is an Olympic-level weightlifter with extraordinary agility and reflexes. Batroc is also a skilled savate (French kickboxing) fighter and a mercenary.
Sounds like the perfect role for the reigning champ.
In light of the recent announcement, let's take a look at a few other MMA personalities and the comic book movie villains they could play.
