Sylvester Stallone Hints That Brock Lesnar vs. Rocky Is Going Down

Action film star Sylvester Stallone made a name for himself in Hollywood with his iconic role in the Rocky series, as well as the Rambo trilogy. Stallone has since revived the Rocky franchise with the new Creed films. Stallone is currently hard at work on Creed 2, which is set to hit theaters Nov. 21, 2018. However, Stallone is still on the hunt for actors to fill some of the iconic roles he has set for the upcoming film. Now it would appear that former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar may be stepping onto the big screen.

Going to Instagram, Stallone stated:

“Big challenges come in all shapes and forms! By the way this is just for entertainment, Drago’s son will be played by a new unknown…#brocklesnar #rockybalboa1976”
