Terming the announcement of Drago as "another heartbreaker", veteran action star Sylvester Stallone has slammed the development of the spin-off under the boxing drama franchise Rocky.

His comments come weeks after he called out Irwin Winkler, the producer behind the series which also includes Creed movies, for allegedly denying him the rights to the franchise for almost five decades now.

ONCE AGAIN , PATHETIC 94 year old PRODUCER and HIS SELFISH USELESS CHILDREN are once again picking what is left OFF THE BONES of another wonderful character!!!

the 76-year-old actor wrote about Drago, the character played by Dolph Lundgren in the series.

"Seriously, how do you weasels look in mirror???" he added.

Creed series, fronted by Michael B Jordan, is itself a spin-off to Stallone's iconic Rocky franchise.

In his post, Stallone also apologised to his fans.

The studio is gearing up for the release of "Creed III", which marks Jordan's directorial debut. The film is slated to be released on November 23.
