The Suicide Squad is coming to theaters and HBO Max at the end of the summer, and fans are eager to see what Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn does with the gang of villainous DC Comics misfits.

And while you might think the Rocky series has run its course, especially with Rocky’s character finding some closure at the end of Creed II, you’re wrong, at least according to Stallone.
