Zlatan Ibrahimovic will unexpectedly break into the acting world in the upcoming Asterix and Obelix film, which is slated for release in February 2023.
On Sunday, the Swedish legend tweeted a clip for Asterix and Obelix: L’Empire du milieu, in which he played the ferocious Roman soldier Antivirus.
Ibrahimovic, who will turn 41 next month, has not yet declared his retirement from the game of football. He also has a contract with AC Milan that runs through the summer of 2023.
The striker, who is depicted on the field of battle wearing soldier’s armor, uses his deft footwork to flick up a helmet before uppercutting his opponent to the ground.
Ibrahimovic addresses his troops in a confident and unflappable manner shortly after the harsh and hilarious clip, nearly exactly mimicking the celebration football fans have frequently witnessed on the field.
He accompanied the trailer with the caption “Soon. Live in France“.
The former Manchester United striker arrived at Milan Fashion Week earlier this weekend in classic “Ibrahimovic” fashion.
The forward smiled for the photographers as he exited his opulent Porsche after pulling up in it.
Ibrahimovic, whose stellar 23-year career is coming to an end, has told fans he will return while still healing from a knee surgery he underwent in May.
The Swede said in a statement to La Gazzetta dello Sport: ‘I will be back soon. I’m not going to retire, I’m coming back and I won’t give up.’

Asterix And Obelix
After Asterix & Obelix vs. Caesar (1999), Asterix & Obelix: Mission Cleopatra (2002), and Asterix at the Olympic Games, Laurent Tirard’s Asterix and Obelix: God Save Britannia (French: Astérix & Obélix: Au service de Sa Majesté; translated as Asterix & Obelix: On Her Majesty’s Service) is the fourth film adaptation.
The movie had its world premiere in September 2012 and is a 3D adaptation. Based on Asterix and the Normans (1965) and Asterix in Britain (1965), it is a live-action movie from Fidélité Films.
When Julius Caesar arrives in Britain, a little town is still valiantly resisting the Roman forces.
But as things get worse and the villagers are running out of time, Anticlimax, one of the locals, asks for volunteers to go ask his second-cousin Asterix the Gaul for assistance and bring back a barrel of “magic medicine” from the Breton settlement of the indomitable heroes.
