Sly Stallone playing a Superhero? Count us in!

Yes he may have appeared in Guardians of the Galaxy, but the last time Stallone led a Superhero romp was in the 90s flick Judge Dredd, which lets be honest, not many of us what to talk about.

But the legendary action star is heading back to the genre in Julius Avery’ s upcoming Samaritan, which is due for release on June 4th 2021.

Thanks to TOTAL FILM, we have an image from the film and some quotes.

Here is the synopsis first:

A young lad learns that a superhero who went missing 20 years ago is living next door to him.

And Avery spoke excitedly about the upcoming film.

We didn’t really have superheroes…We only had action heroes. And Sly was the closest thing we had to a superhero. So to put him in a superhero movie? That feels fresh and cool and something that people will get a kick out of.

This is a big event movie – we see our heroes kicking ass…We’re going to see Sly do things he hasn’t done in a long time, and in a really inventive way. He’s 73 years old! I’m amazed by how much he actually does. I’m telling you, most guys in their twenties wouldn’t be able to do what Sly does in this movie.

And judging by this image, we do admit he does look a bit like Bruce Willis in the wonderful Unbreakable
