Earlier this month, Sylvester Stallone confirmed he would not return for the third Creed film. Now Michael B. Jordan, who’s making his directorial debut has explained why Sly won’t appear.
Speaking with IGN, Jordan said:
“Yeah, I think that Sly let it be known that he wasn’t coming back for this one but I think, you know, his essence and his spirit… there’s always going to be a little bit of Rocky within Adonis.”
The Without Remorse star continued:
“But this is a Creed franchise, and we really want to build this story and this world around him moving forward. So, it’s always respect and always a shit-ton of love for what he’s built, but we really want to push and navigate Adonis forward and the family that he created. So, hopefully you guys will love what I’m thinking… what we’re cooking up. I think it’s going to be something special.”
I’ll miss Sly, but after playing the character for 42 years, his story has come to a natural conclusion. Creed can now move forward and out of the shadow of Rocky.
