‘I didn’t know if there was any part for me’: Sylvester Stallone Reveals Creed 3 is Going in a Separate and Interesting Way

Creed and Creed II were box office hits, with the former garnering Stallone his second Oscar nomination in 40 years for his performance as the Italian Stallion. Rocky took another final bow in Creed II, effectively handing over the helm to Jordan, who will make his feature directorial debut with Creed III. Following his rumored exit from the franchise, Stallone has now given his opinion on the forthcoming movie.

Stallone explained what fans may anticipate from Creed III in a recent interview with Metro at the UK launch of Paramount+. After becoming the trainer for Adonis, the son of his former rival Apollo Creed, the actor was questioned about why Rocky will not appear in the film. Stallone is a producer on the picture, which he hyped as “really interesting” after stepping out of acting.

“Well it’s different because actually, I bowed out of that one, I just didn’t know if there was any part for me. It takes it in a different direction. I wish them well and keep punching!”

Tessa Thompson and Phylicia Rashad star alongside Jordan in the third Creed film, which is the ninth overall in the Rocky franchise. Jonathan Majors, best known for his roles in Loki and Lovecraft Country, has joined the cast as Anderson Dame, the protagonist’s latest adversary. The threequel, being the first film in the Rocky universe without Sylvester Stallone, appears to be focusing more on its identity as a distinct story, rather than nostalgia, as it alters the franchise’s traditional formula.

Creed III is currently expected to be released in November 2022.
