A seminal part of Creed was the mentor role played by Rocky Balboa himself. However since this is a ‘Creed’ series after all, how much will Rocky himself be a thing in the future?
Sylvester Stallone was at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival last night to accept the Montecito award, and while he was there, someone asked him about Creed II. Here’s what he said, according to Variety:
“I really have mixed feelings about this, seriously,” he said. “I feel like Rocky, at the end of this movie on the steps, with the help of a young man, and he looks out and says, ‘From here, you can see your whole life’ — it sort of summarizes the whole thing. I don’t know how much further you can push Rocky.”
Makes you wonder if Stallone will slip back into a producer position or something. Probably not, just a strong cameo next time maybe?
