Brock Lesnar Rumored To Be Playing Ivan Drago’s Son In Next Rocky Film
Sylvester Stallone has had a long, successful run in showbiz.
He launched his career with Rocky, the iconic boxing movie that he wrote, starred and directed. The film was the Oscar winner in 1975 for Best Picture.
Six more Rocky films were made in its aftermath, including the most recent spinoff Creed, released in 2015.
Stallone plays Rocky Balboa in all of the sequels, and is currently working on Creed 2.
Dolph Lundgren played Ivan Drago, the Russian boxer and protagonist in Rocky IV. Released over 32 years ago, Drago's character has long been remembered as one of the great movie villains in history.
Stallone took to his Instagram page to tease who may be playing the villain in Creed 2.
Drago's son! Played by WWE World Champion and former UFC Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar!?
While Stallone claims Drago's son will be played by a new unknown, he teases the possibility of Lesnar by including him in the altered photo above, fighting Rocky in the octagon.
Considering Lundgren made the role of Drago famous without saying much dialogue, having a menacing Lesnar in a ring with Michael B. Jordan (actor who plays Creed) would be perfect.
