Sly just posted that photo up and he seems to be teasing that Ivan Drago might appear in “Creed 2” in some way. Could Ivan Drago come out of retirement and fight Apollo’s son in “Creed 2”? Either that or Ivan Drago ends up having a son himself and his son fights Apollo’s son for the next “Creed” film.
I would think Ivan Drago would be a retired boxer himself by now but if the idea for “Creed 2” is that Ivan has a boxer son now, that would be kind of cool. It would make total sense to bring Ivan Drago back too, that way Adonis can get revenge at the guy who killed his father.
I hope Ivan comes back ’cause it would be cool to see Ivan and Rocky reunited. Question is though, would Rocky and Ivan be friends or are they enemies still? I think it’ll be cool if Dolph Lundgren reprises his role as Ivan Drago for “Creed 2”. It’ll probably end up happening.
Dolph is not that old, he’s just 59. I think the idea would be that Ivan could be his sons manager to fight against Adonis (Apollo’s son).
I really loved the first “Creed” movie a lot. I actually thought it was a very good movie and no doubt, it was Sly Stallone’s best performance in his career. I’m definitely gonna go see “Creed 2” for sure.
A “Masters of the Universe” reboot is still in the works but they just hired a new writer. Christopher Yost, who was the writer for the first two “Thor” films and the writer for the upcoming 3rd Thor film has been hired to write the new “Masters of the Universe” reboot.
Plot details of the new “Masters of the Universe” movie is being kept underwraps but they do give us a little bit of what the story is gonna be about. They want the new He-Man movie to forget the origin story. They don’t want to focus on the beginning of He-Man’s and Skeletor’s feud. Instead, they’re gonna jump right into the story and Skeletor plans to take over Eternia. Looks like the next movie will be taking place on Eternia instead of Earth this time which is cool.
Which is funny ’cause I just re-watched the 1987 “Masters of the Universe” movie with Dolph on Netflix the other night and it’s still a great movie. I’m a huge fan of the He-Man character. Always has been. When I was a kid, I used to watch the He-Man cartoon series all the time and I used to collect all the action figures. It’s a real shame that a sequel to that film never happened when it was going to.
Why didn’t a “Masters of The Universe II” happen when it was going to? It had something to do with Dolph not willing to return and also had something to do with budgeting and copyrights. They were getting ready to film “Masters of the Universe II” with a different actor playing He-Man but Cannon films owed Mattel a lot of money for rights of the characters and they also owed Marvel a lot of money for the Spiderman movie they were planning so for that reason they had to cancel both projects.
More on it here:
Dolph never enjoyed playing the He-man role ’cause he didn’t like the costume he was wearing for the film. He was embarrassed being half-naked for that role, ya know? So I don’t think you’ll ever see Dolph back in the He-Man role ever again.
I hope they do a good job with the new “Masters of the Universe” reboot and it’s gonna be interesting to see who they’re gonna get for He-Man and Skeletor. I’m sure the new film will be action packed. Lots of special effects and CGI too. I hope they use Battlecat for the next film ’cause that would be badass. They didn’t use Battlecat for the 1987 film.
It’s interesting that the new He-Man movie is taking a long time to make. Sometimes movies take a long time to make, small baby-steps. I think it’s because they’re being more careful with this one and want to make this one a good movie since the 1987 film failed in the box office.
Here’s a younger Dolph Lundgren having a chat with actress Grace Jones. Dolph just dropped this photo on his facebook page and thought it would be worth sharing here. It seems like Grace is trying to invite him over for a good time, hey? I bet Dolph got himself a lot of pussy back in the day.
Dolph is one of my favorite actors, though. I love Dolph Lundgren movies. I even loved all of his b-movies that he starred in over the years.
Edit to add: I can’t tell whether Grace Jones is either a man or a woman. I’m sure you would agree.
Two “Expendables” movies have already past and a third one is currently filming. Dolph Lundgren has had a long career of directing films himself but he has mostly directed low budget B-movies. So far, Dolph hasn’t directed an Expendables movie. So many fans have been wondering why Dolph haven’t directed an Expendables movie yet since Dolph has directed violent action movies himself and Dolph, the man himself, finally explains why in this Q&A video directly to a fan. Why Dolph haven’t directed an Expendables movie himself yet? I’m sure Sly and the film crew would welcome him to direct an EXP movie but Dolph says he isn’t ready yet. That’s the reason. He has directed low budget and high budget films before — he’s just not ready to direct a big blockbuster like “The Expendables”. Still though, he says, “we’ll see”, so that’s a definite maybe. So keep our fingers crossed for now on whether or not Dolph will be ready to direct EXP 4 or 5.
I totally agree that Dolph should direct an “Expendables” movie. I have seen some of Dolph’s directed action movies like “Command Performance”. He’s very good with violent action scenes… that’s why he would be good to direct an Expendables movie. Maybe not now but Dolph said maybe sometime in the future.
Dolph seems like a real nice man in real life.
Watch the video, here.
I love how he explains the difference between directing a low budget film and a high budget film. Dolph is the freakin’ man! Always admired the guy!
It seems that action-star Dolph Lundgren, only gets huge in Hollywood whenever he works with his long-time pal and friend, Sylvester Stallone. Dolph is only well-known for “Rocky IV” as Ivan Drago, and in “The Expendables” as Gunnar Jensen. He has done some big-screen movies without Sly with films such as: “Masters of the Universe”, “Red Scorpion”, “Universal Soldier” (the first one), “The Punisher” and maybe a few others; most of Dolph’s movies have been straight-to-video B-movies. Dolph has always been a struggling actor-director for years. He tries really hard to become successful and he does take his work seriously.
Why does he deserve more recognition? I can think of a few reasons. For starters, Dolph knows movies and behind-the-scenes directing better than everybody. He can do the tough-guy image really well in action movies. In films, he can play both the villain and the hero really well. He knows how to make violent action scenes and make them exciting and thrilling. Even some of his straight-to-video movies can be pretty violent and gruesome. I actually like some of his straight-to-video stuff ’cause I’ve been watching quite a lot of ’em on Netflix. The man works extremely hard.
I also admire Dolph for his martial arts training and fitness advice. In fitness, he’s one of the very few guys who don’t rely on bodybuilding weights to get ripped. He got the body with martial arts, which is what he is an expert at. I watched “Red Scorpion” on Netfilx last night and forgot how good that movie was. Dolph is a badass, and a true action star. He’s underrated and wish he would get recognized more.
I think he will get bigger roles after, “The Expendables” is done. He’s an interesting guy, I don’t get why Hollywood continues to ignore his talent. Dolph is great. I wish the nay-sayers will give the man a chance ’cause he can be something special. He is also a big inspiration to me right behind Sly and Arnold. I’ve been watching Dolph movies for years. I thought I would get this topic off my chest since I’ve been watching a lot of Dolph films through Netflix streaming and DVD rentals.
Edit to add: I also watched the new “Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning” on Netflix a few weeks ago and that was actually really good! Dolph only had a small role in that film, though.
In this video, Dolph Lundgren is seen here teaching this woman a few workouts that he did for, “The Expendables”, movies. In his workout training, he doesn’t do much bodybuilding and weightlifting. He focuses mostly on body weight workouts, just the body alone. He mostly does kickboxing and martial arts type of workouts that helps keep him in shape. In fitness, you can get in the greatest shape of your life, by not doing weight lifting at all. You can still get a ripped physique just doing body workouts alone. I just tried the first two workouts in these videos, and they really work. I can feel the burn. Dolph is a good workout trainer and I admire his unique workouts. Dolph has plenty of unique workouts. Do a youtube search.
In Dolph Lundgren’s official facebook page, he’ll answer fan Q&A questions a day. I left him a question a long while back, but it took him a while to get to it, well, he finally answered my question. I’m 100% sure, this was my question, here it is…
I wonder what character in “Gladiator” he was originally supposed to play? It was probably Russell’s, Maximus role, wouldn’t surprise me.
