Sylvester Stallone will play a long-disappeared superhero in Samaritan, and the film – following Covid delays – has wrapped production.

Gradually, after Covid-affected productions, a growing number of movies are finally making it to the finish line. One such film is Samaritan, starring Sylvester Stallone. This is the film where Sly plays a reclusive, ageing superhero, and the young boy who tries to track him down 20 years after he disappeared.

Julius Avery, the helmer of Overlord, has directed this one. Bragi F Schut has penned the screenplay, and the completion of physical production was marked by Stallone posting an update to his Instagram channel.

He wrote:

“I will miss working on this production with the cast and crew and Attention to every detail by our wonderful Director Julius Avery and producer BRADEN AFTERGOOD and our fearless army of stunt men! Entire crew was tested down to the last person every day for Covid which amounted to thousands upon thousands of Tests and we came through like Champs! Yes , this moment in time will always hold a special place in my heart, keep punching”.

Here’s the video he released…
