In a video released this morning, the one that was shot during the last day of Creed II, actor Sylvester Stallone revealed that he clips his gloves with "Creed II" to serve him as the last time as Rocky Balboa.
In the video, he talks to some of the actors and crew of that movie, saying how much he meant that the character he created could have returned two more times after he thought it was done:
"Well, this is probably my last rodeo, because what I think happened, and it happened, I never expected. I thought that Rocky was finished in 2006 [Rocky Balboa]. And I was very happy with that. Then suddenly this young man introduced himself and the whole story changed. She continued with the new generation. New problems. New adventures. And I could not be happier as I retreat, because my story is told, there is a whole new world that will open up with the audience, with this generation. Now you [pointing to Michael B. Jordan], they must wear a mantle. "
Together with the video, Stallone thanked fans for sticking his face for over forty years and adds: "Unfortunately, all things have to pass … and finish. Keep punching, I love kind and generous people, and Rocky loves you, too. "
Stallone's latest release in the role can be seen in "Creed II" at the moment in cinemas. Stallone is currently recording "Rambo: Last Blood", which is expected to be his last in his other iconic role, John Rambo.
