Today, we had two separate pieces of news drop for two completely separate Sylvester Stallone projects, so why not share them in the same piece? Welcome to Sly’s Corner!

First up, we have Creed II — the film we’re all looking forward to, especially after that first film managed to blow our expectations out of the water. On the heels of that success, they are further digging into nostalgia by bringing back Ivan Drago, who is training his son to take on a young Adonis Creed. It’s a generational grudge match, and you’d better believe Rocky himself will be playing a role. In this new poster, we get to see Rocky for the first time since the tail-end of the first film. Check him out down below!

Next up, we have some Rambo news — Rambo: The Last Blood (aka Rambo 5). We’ve known that this film was in development and was well on its way to production. Now, Omega Underground is reporting that the violent film is set for a September 1, 2018 start date.

Also, given how far along they are without a named director, it is assumed Stallone himself will be helming the project, but we’ll have to wait and see. Here is a rough synopsis given by the outlet.

“John Rambo ended with Rambo returning stateside to his family ranch in Arizona. The fifth film will have a neighboring rancher/friend see his daughter kidnapped by sex-traffickers who turn out to be members of violent drug cartel and the older Rambo agrees to find/rescue her.”

Which of these two Sly projects are you most excited for? Let us know down below!
