‘Creed 3’ will continue the story of boxer Adonis Creed, but will not bring back his longtime mentor. Sylvester Stallone will not be returning as Rocky Balboa.
In an interview with IGN, actor Michael B. Jordan explained why the star is not returning.
“I think Sly made it clear that he’s not coming back to this one, but I think, you know, his essence and his spirit… there will always be a bit of Rocky inside Adonis.” But it’s a Creed franchise, and we really want to build that story and this world around it to move forward. So it’s still respect and still a ton of love for what he’s built, but we really want to move Adonis and the family he created forward. Hope you like what I create… what we prepare. I think it will be something special. “, He said.
The third chapter of the ‘Creed’ franchise will feature star Michael B. Jordan as the protagonist and make his directorial debut.
The feature film will be released on November 23, 2023. It is not yet known when recordings will begin.
Tessa Thompson also returns as Bianca Taylor.
Zach Baylin (“King Richard“) writes.
Remember ‘Creed II’ was a critical and public success, grossing $ 214.1 million worldwide, beating the first film’s box office ($ 173.6 million)
