Michael B. Jordan Explains Why Sylvester Stallone Won't Be In 'Creed III'

Michael B. Jordan is opening up about Creed III.

In a new interview with IGN, the 34-year-old actor, who will be making his directorial debut with the upcoming Creed movie, explained why Sylvester Stallone won’t be in the upcoming movie.

“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,” Michael shared.

Just last week the 74-year-old actor confirmed that he will not be reprising his role as Rocky Balboa in Creed III.

“But this is a Creed franchise, and we really want to build this story and this world around him moving forward,” Michael continued. “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.”

If you missed it, Michael is showing off his buff, shirtless bod in the latest Without Remorse trailer!

Creed III is scheduled to be released on Nov. 23, 2022.
