Rambo Will Not Fight ISIS In His Next And Last Movie (UPDATED)

Don’t worry, everyone. Rambo’s got this. (Update: No he doesn’t.)

Rambo’s real-life alter ego Sylvester Stallone, announced at Comic-Con that the final Rambo movie will pitt Rambo against ISIS. The film will apparently be called “Last Blood,” and the Islamic State is the enemy. This is a change from Stallone’s previous plan of taking on the cartels.

ForeignPolicy.com notes that Rambo actually supported islamic rebels back in ‘88 in Rambo III, which was “dedicated to the brave Mujahideen fighters of Afghanistan.”

Foreign Policy further reports that Stallone has teams “scouting Iraq and parts of Syria where ISIS have their greatest strongholds” and “working with the locals there to help deliver the most intense and realistic Rambo movie experience ever.”

Do you hear that? Rambo already has teams working on ISIS as we speak.

We’re in the clear. No more blowing up babies. Rambo’s gonna turn this around, just like he did in ‘Nam.

UPDATED: It was all a hoax. Rambo will not fight ISIS. All hope is lost, surrender now to the Islamic State we will not have Rambo to save us.

On a side note: Does anyone think we’ll ever see some Call Of Duty-like games where we’ll fight ISIS? (Or Medal Of Honor, etc.) Or would that be too insensitive and weird, with regards to Islam in general?

I mean, ISIS is such a universally despised and hated entity, you would think that movie and game studios would be scrambling to work them into as many productions as possible, but that doesn’t seem to be the case, in fact, this Rambo movie is the first one that I know of.

Maybe in a few years, when this whole mess is behind us and it’s less awkward?
