In his interview with The Hollywood ReporterStallone says that Ryan Coogler, director of Black Panther and producer for Credo 3handpicked aspects of Rocky without even asking the actor if he wanted to participate. “I’m not an executive producer of the Creed movies. It’s Ryan Coogler. Michael B. Jordan is. [Winkler and Chartoff’s] children are. Not mine. I’m the only one left out“said Stallone.

Creed 3 will follow Adonis Creed (Michael B. Jordan) against a new villain, Damian Anderson (Jonathan Majors). Stallone wonders how much he regrets the changes. He added:

It’s an unfortunate situation because I know what it could have been. It was taken in quite a different direction than I would have taken it. It’s a different philosophy – that of Irwin Winkler and Michael B. Jordan. I wish them good luck, but I’m much more sentimental. I like my heroes getting beat up, but I just don’t want them going into this dark space. I just feel like people got enough darkness.”

Despite Stallone’s absence from the upcoming film, Jordan assured fans in his previous interview that he would honor the actor and the franchise he’s built over the decades. Jordan said (via IndieWire):

I think Sly made it known that he wasn’t coming back for this one but I think, you know, his essence and his spirit. There will always be a bit of Rocky in Adonis. But it’s a “Creed” franchise, and we really want to build that story and that world around it. [Adonis Creed] to advance.”

The Creed star says he respects the Rocky franchise, but it needs to move on and focus on Adonis’ future, as Sylvester Stallone’s character won’t be returning.

Creed 3 will arrive in theaters in March 2023.
