Sylvester Stallone became the Joker in a playful Instagram post.

Stallone captioned the photo, “One way to stay in shape is to put your dessert on your face instead of in your stomach…”

But the bigger question is asked in the video, “Who did it better Joaquin Phoenix or Sly?”

While Sly Stallone might be having a little fun becoming the Joker with his dessert, he’s got a lot going on.

It was recently announced that he will be starring in the upcoming Michael Bay film Little America.

The film takes place in a dystopian future where America has become a war zone. Sly plays a former Army Ranger who is hired by a billionaire to find his daughter.

Sly will delve into a dystopian Hong Kong, now called Little America due to the number of American refugees who have settled there following the chaos in the United States.

Sly is also working on his upcoming dark superhero film Samaritan, which is expected to debut on December 11, 2020. The film follows a young boy who seeks out a mythic superhero who disappeared over 20 years ago.

Sly has also jumped into the comic book game with Bane creators Chuck Dixon and Graham Nolan.

The trio alongside YouTuber and comic book creator Richard C. Meyer are working on a new Expendables project set between the second and third films.

The comic book titled The Expendables Go To Hell has currently raised $112,142 from 1,428 backers on IndieGoGo.

Back in 2018, it was also reported that Stallone through his Balboa Productions company is also working on adapting Chuck Dixon’s Levon Cade novel series.

Balboa Productions was also working on adapting James Byron Huggins’ Hunter novel as well as Michael McGowan and Ralph Pezzullo’s Ghost: My Thirty Years as an FBI Undercover Agent.

They are also working on adapting Charles Sailor’s Second Son novel into a TV series.

Finally, Stallone’s action drama The International with Dolph Lundgren got a put pilot at CBS. The series stars Lundgren and will be directed by Stallone. Deadline describes Lundgren’s character as a “one-man covert black-ops team working for the U.N. who is called in to find asymmetrical solutions to the world’s most delicate and complex problems.”

Needless to say Stallone is rather busy, but he still managed to find some time to have a little fun and transform himself into the Joker.
