A Look At Batroc The Leaper In CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER!

And hey, it looks like Batroc!

In Captain America: The Winter Soldier Cap fights one of his most infamous comic book villains: Batroc the Leaper. A French guy who jumps around and kicks a lot, Batroc is known for having not just a silly name but also a pretty silly look. When we heard he'd be in the movie we wondered how Marvel Studios would deal with his silly outfit and facial hair. The good news: his outfit is actually recognizable as Batroc's, even if it has been changed up a bit. The bad news: I don't think we're getting the mustache. At least, it doesn't look sthat way in this picture from Cap 2

Here's what Batroc looks like in the comics. The movie version seems to have lost the mask as well (although he may have a mask in another shot):

It's not a 1:1 translation, but the general colors - and even the stripes - are intact.

Batroc shows up in the movie's opening scene, where Cap jumps out of a plane without a parachute and then takes down a boat full of baddies. From the footage I've seen it's going to be amazing.
