For a while now fans have been wondering if the 74-year-old actor will be reprising his role as Rocky Balboa, and he has finally confirmed that he will not be back for Creed III.
Earlier this week, a fan asked Sylvester on Instagram if he was coming back for the movie, and Sylvester responded, saying, “It will be done but I won’t be in it. Keep punching.”
Then on Tuesday (April 6), Sylvester‘s rep confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter that he won’t be in Creed III, but didn’t give an explanation as to why.
Creed III will mark the directorial debut for Michael. The film is scheduled to be released on Nov. 23, 2022.
