Is Amitabh Bachchan coming as a superhero in Samaritan ? asked a fan as Amazon Prime Video dropped the first look poster of the Hollywood sci-fi movie, Samaritan earlier this month. The netizens confused Big B with Hollywood star Sylvester Stallone , who will actually star as a superhero in Samaritan. Several internet users found the actor’s striking resemblance to the Hollywood actor, even in its trailer that was unveiled on Wednesday.
In the upcoming movie, Stallone plays superhero-in hiding, who is working as a garbageman named Joe Smith. In the trailer, a teenager Cleary decides to bring out Samaritan back to save the city. The 76-year-old has donned an action-hero avatar and his stature and wrinkled face seemingly resemble that of Bachchan to fans.
