Sylvester Stallone is not happy.

Actor Sylvester Stallone, who is best known for creating and portraying Rocky Balboa in the classic 1976 film "Rocky" and its subsequent sequels, is dissatisfied with the Drago spinoff.

Irwin Winkler, the miserable 94-year-old producer, and his moronic vulture children, Charles and David, have been digging through the remains of yet another brilliant character that Sylvester Stallone created without informing him, the actor said in a social media post. Sylvester Stallone's accompanying screenshot of the project's announcement has now been taken off.

After learning that Dolph Lundgren will be reprising his role as the Russian boxer Ivan Drago in the upcoming spinoff, the original Rocky Balboa referred to the sequel as "another heartbreaker" and addressed his old buddy. Sylvester Stallone called Dolph Lundgren a parasite and apologized to him and the Rocky Balboa followers, saying that he never intended for Rocky Balboa to be used as a pawn by these parasites.

In the article, Sylvester Stallone also stated that he formerly had nothing but respect for Dolph Lundgren, who never told him about the developments with the persona he established for him. Real friends, Sylvester said, are worth far more than riches. He posted manipulated photographs of Irwin Winkler sucking Rocky's blood and stabbing him in the back after his critical post. He said that Drago returns to his proper bloodsuckers when Irwin Winkler and his family have drained Rocky dry. Irwin Winkler is regarded as the most despised, untalented, and senile producer in Hollywood, and his cowardly offspring have likely found their next meal.

The actor highlighted how so many famous musicians, painters, writers, and other professionals throughout history had their careers wrecked by bloodsuckers who had destroyed so many families to line their wallets. Sylvester Stallone questioned Dolph about why he had not reached out to him. No phone at all?

After Sylvester Stallone called him out regarding the Drago spinoff, Dolph Lundgren took to social media to clarify the situation. He shared a photo of the two while claiming that there was no approved script, no deal, no director and that he was mistaken in thinking that his friend Sylvester Stallone was involved as a producer or even as an actor. Dolph mentioned that there had been an unfortunate press leak the previous week and added that he had spoken with Mr. Balboa to put his fans at ease.

Sylvester Stallone has already expressed his desire to have complete control over the property he founded. Sylvester Stallone requested Irwin Winkler give him the remaining rights to the film earlier this month. The actor claimed that after Irwin had complete control of Rocky for more than 47 years and now Creed, he would like to reclaim at least some of his remaining rights before leaving them exclusively to Irwin's children.

Sylvester Stallone indicated that he wants to leave something of Rocky for his children and that owning the rights would be a decent gift from a 93-year-old guy, but it's always fantastic to hear from the devoted fans.He said in 2019 that he had no ownership of the property and expressed remorse over not pressing the issue further during the negotiations for the first film. He said it was astonishing that it never happened and that every word, syllable, and grammatical mistake were all his responsibility, but he was informed you were paid so what's the big deal?

Sylvester Stallone's depiction of Rocky Balboa won him nominations for the Best Actor Oscar and the Best Original Screenplay Golden Globe for the film. Stallone developed the role of Rocky Balboa while he was still trying to break into Hollywood. He would star in five movies and even oversee Rocky II through IV. Later, he played the same character in the follow-up films Creed (2015) and Creed II (2017). Without Sylvester Stallone, the following Creed movie is scheduled to debut in March 2023.

According to The Wrap, the Drago spinoff will be a Creed spinoff that will follow the Rocky universe and center on Apollo Creed played by Carl Weathers' son, Adonis Johnson played by Michael B. Jordan. Sylvester Stallone co-starred as Rocky in both Creed and Creed II, and for his performance in the first movie, he received an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor. Drago's narrative is being kept a mystery, although it will reportedly center on Ivan Drago played by Dolph Lundgren and his son Viktor Drago played by Florian Munteanu, who appeared in Creed II.
