Sylvester Stallone has been keeping himself busy during the pandemic with his long-awaited director’s cut of Rocky IV. The film’s writer, director, and ridiculously ripped star has been teasing this release for months now, but Stallone finally announced a release date, as well as a gorgeous poster reveal for the occasion. While the 35th anniversary of the 1985 epic sports drama was technically on November 27, 2020, it’s nice to still be able to celebrate Rocky Balboa’s victory all over again on the big screen.

last rocky movie

Sylvester Stallone recently confirmed for Rocky fans what he already mentioned at the end of production on Creed II: The journey of Rocky Balboa is over. Creed III will not bring back the iconic actor to reprise the role, and the franchise will continue without the champion boxer turned ringside mentor. Instead, Michael B. Jordan will now venture out on his own, not just as the star of the franchise, but as the sequel’s director, and he recently explained why now is the time for Rocky to disappear. Read More »

And while you might think the Rocky series has run its course, especially with Rocky’s character finding some closure at the end of Creed II, you’re wrong, at least according to Stallone. The actor-writer-director has revealed he’s thinking of making a Rocky prequel series that will “transport us back to the origins of Rocky.” But here’s the thing – we already know the origins of Rocky. We saw them in Rocky.

Creed 3 Director Could Be Michael B. Jordan

And as if that weren’t a bad enough idea, there’s also an idea for a Rocky prequel series.
