What do Spider-Man, Scarlet Witch, Dr. Strange, and other popular superheroes have in common? Those young enough to still face battles from city to city. In Samaritan, 76-year-old Sylvester Stallone proves that age is not just a number for superheroes. We also saw him dodge bullets in the Rambofranchise and The Expendables franchise.
Samaritan is set 20 years after a well-known hero with superhuman strength, called Samaritan, disappeared. The people are eager for someone to help them defend themselves against the threats. A young boy named Sam Cleary begins a quest for Samaritan and begins to suspect that his quiet neighbor, Joe Smith, might be more than he is claimed to be, and may be the long-lost superhero, Samaritan. Sam tries to get Samaritan back into the fight.
MGM purchased the spec script for Samaritan, which was written by Bragi F. Schut, before adapting the story into a series of graphic novels with Marc Olivent and Renzo Podesta. Filming resumed on October 8, 2020, after the COVID-19 epidemic.
