Sylvester Stallone returns to the 'Rocky Steps' with Michael B. Jordan

03.17.2015

The film may be called CREED but we're sure getting plenty of references to the previous ROCKY films. Sylvester Stallone and Michael B. Jordan are currently filming the spin-off flick in Philadelphia and it appears as though the iconic "Rocky Steps" will be making their customary appearance. The pair were photographed in the midst of shooting at the Philadelphia Museum of Art in a scene very reminiscent of the one from the original film.

I can definitely see Sylvester Stallone channeling Mickey here, I'm just left wondering whose film this is going to be. Obviously people want to see Rocky but I'm hoping that he's in more of a supporting role and Michael B. Jordan is given the chance to properly lead the film.

Check out the official synopsis for CREED:

Adonis Johnson (Jordan) never knew his famous father, world heavyweight champion Apollo Creed, who died before he was born.  Still, there’s no denying that boxing is in his blood, so Adonis heads to Philadelphia, the site of Apollo Creed’s legendary match with a tough upstart named Rocky Balboa. Once in the City of Brotherly Love, Adonis tracks Rocky (Stallone) down and asks him to be his trainer.

Despite his insistence that he is out of the fight game for good, Rocky sees in Adonis the strength and determination he had known in Apollo—the fierce rival who became his closest friend.  Agreeing to take him on, Rocky trains the young fighter, even as the former champ is battling an opponent more deadly than any he faced in the ring. With Rocky in his corner, it isn’t long before Adonis gets his own shot at the title…but can he develop not only the drive but also the heart of a true fighter, in time to get into the ring?

CREED will open on November 25, 2015.

Rockys probably dying

I think its kind of obvious that "even as the former champ is battling an opponent more deadly than any he faced in the ring." means he's got some disease or cancer or something... I'm guessing that the grey balding look has more to do with that than anything. I assume Rockys dying.

Oh wow. I was actually excited about this movie until just right now. All hope has been lost. I AM NOT feeling those prosthetics. It would have been better if he had grey hair in Rocky Balboa because him without not one grey in Balboa was kind of unbelievable and farfetched. And now with those stupid looking prosthetics and white hair he looks like he aged 30 years since Balboa and that was only like 9 years ago! No. Just. No.

I'd rather see the spin-off where Rocky trains that dog.

Stallone tried to kill of Rocky in Rocky V and ended up with an awful movie....I have a sense of deja vu with this one...

Either they're doing it on purpose, or not, but this is the first time I've seen Stallone in which he actually looks old. Either way, I'm excited to see what they bring to this movie.

Stallone doesn't seem to have the grey hair in other clips from the shooting of this movie. I suspect some years are meant to have passed here.

Did they intentionally make Rocky look older than he should be? I mean, Stallone looked better than this in The Expendables 3.

Why does Rocky look like Mickey??

I get he is basically playing the Mickey role in this but the movie seems too similar to Rocky 5 where he trains the street fighter kid. Rocky isn't good as a trainer, how do you train people to take punches until the other guy wears himself out?

Michael B. Jordan is a talented young actor. He has yet to ruin any franchise. If not for the color of his skin, he would be considered ideal casting for Johnny Storm. He has charisma and the ability to play cocky in a charming way. You may not like the choice because he doesn't fit the comic book iteration, but his acting is not the problem. Your purist attitude is the determining factor. Jordan will probably do well, but who cares? He's black and the character is meant to be white.

Age?

If Apollo died in Rocky IV which takes place in 1985, that would make Adonis 30 years old at the youngest during this movie... Anything younger would mean that Apollo got a woman pregnant after his own death, making him one horny zombie! I bet that they are going to ignore this, just like they aged Rocky Jr between Rocky IV and Rocky V, even though his dad was only away for a couple of months in Russia... Rocky Balboa was the perfect ending to the franchise, we don't need this... give us Rambo

Well, Michael B. Jordan was born in 1987, two years after Apollo Creed died, and since an actor's age is rarely the same age as the character, I don't see why a 28 year old can't play 30.

And don't forget we saw Apollo's two toddlers running around in "Rocky II", will they still figure in or not perhaps Adonis will be their 3rd, I doubt it. I'm like make all the sequels you want but all I ask for is consistency because without that you have nothing...
