Sylvester Stallone says Creed II may be his last film as Rocky Balboa: 'All things must pass...and end'
Rocky star Sylvester Stallone said on Wednesday that his upcoming Creed II will be his final film as the iconic boxer, Rocky Balboa. In an Instagram post, Stallone confessed that the sequel to Creed would be his last appearance as the character.
Stallone's Rocky franchise was arguably one of the most popular among audiences and a smooth run for its producers. Having made six films in the series, the makers came up with a spin-off, Creed. This film depicts Michael B Jordan as Adonis Creed.
Creed II sees Stallone come back to the silver screen as an aging Rocky who trains Adonis.
