Fresh off winning the EuroBasket championship, the French national team, including San Antonio Spurs players Tony Parker, Boris Diaw and Nando De Colo look to be making their Hollywood debut.
Ok, not really, but apparently someone had some fun in Photoshop (via Nicolas Batum's Twitter account) with an Avengers-themed composite image with members of Les Bleus as Blue Avengers.
Parker, obviously the team captain, is set in the role of "Captain America," or perhaps "Captain France" in this case. Diaw is donning the "Thor" uniform and hammer. Unfortunately, Nando De Colo is just cast as himself in the French national team uniform. Apparently Batman (who is not an "Avenger" nor part of the Marvel comic universe) has also joined the "Avengers" in this image.
Follow the jump for the full poster in all its glory.
Epic! Poor Nando. He's becoming the Rodney Dangerfield of basketball. Starts off backup pg for Spurs: Wears suit in Finals. Plays for French National Team: No one will take the time to at least photo shop him into a Superhero. Period. I like the fact TP is still wearing those fighter goggles as well. Gotta keep those on for Capt France.
