'Creed III' is in the works and one iconic character won't be returning.
Michael B. Jordan is addressing why Rocky is going to be left behind as the 'Creed series' moves forward.
"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 big of Rocky within Adonis," said Jordan.
He continued "But this is a Creed franchise, and we really want to build this story and this world around him moving forward. So, it's always respect and always a shit-ton of love for what he's build, 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."
