New set pics are online for the MCU Disney+ series The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, and they reveal the return of a villain from a previous film. Production is ongoing in Atlanta for the series, and pics from Just Jared have revealed that UFC alumnus Georges St-Pierre is back in his role as Batroc.

GSP played Batroc in the opening scene of Captain America: The Winter Soldier. In the comics, Batroc is often known as Batroc the Leaper, aka the French national Batroc le Sauteur. A mercenary with enormous combat skills, he was bested by Steve Rogers and Black Widow in the 2014 film.

The series is written by Derek Kolstad (John Wick) and stars Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan, Emily VamCamp Daniel Bruhl, and St-Pierre reprising their roles as Sam Wilson, Bucky Barnes, Sharon Carter/Agent 13, Helmut Zemo, and Batroc. New to the MCU with the series are Russell as U.S. Agent along with Miki Ishikawa, Desmond Chiam, Carl Lumbly and Noah Mills.

Plot details are still under wraps for the series, which is expected (but not confirmed) to premiere next year.
