It’s now been confirmed that Creed star, Michael B. Jordan is set to star and direct “Creed III”, the third installment to the Rocky spin off series. This was confirmed by the “Creed” actress Tessa Thompson who plays Adonis’s lover in the films. The script for “Creed III” is still being worked on but the story and plot that continues on after “Creed II” is not yet known.
A lot of Rocky & Creed fans dream is that they are hoping and begging Mr. T to reprise his role as Clubber Lang for “Creed IIII”… wanting Clubber’s son to fight against Adonis. Kind of a similar plot to Ivan Drago’s son.
I like this plot idea for Clubber return in this article, though. They shouldn’t go for the son idea ’cause why repeat the same story, ya know? It should be just Clubber.
Not sure if the script is being written for Clubber to come back but man, I feel that no one other than Mr. T should play that character. That role belongs to him only. It would be a joke if they got someone else to play Clubber ’cause the movie would bomb if that happened. If they’re going to bring Clubber back then everybody will expect Mr. T to reprise that role.
Bringing Clubber back is a nice idea and a nice dream but it’s all up to Mr. T. himself if he wants to reprise the role. He’s kind of a retired actor, I think? He hasn’t had a big screen role in many years. His real name is Lawrence Tureaud and as you can see in the pic of him walking the street in sweats, he still has that mean and tough guy look even though he’s 68 now.
If Mr. T came back as Clubber, I’m sure he still got it and would knock it out of the park.
As far as Rocky played by Sylvester Stallone, it’s not yet known whether or not Sly is coming back as his iconic character once again. Ever since Creed II, Sly maintained that will be the last and final time he’ll be playing Rocky in a Creed film but ya never know. Sly could change his mind. I thought Sly retired the character for good but in his online Q&A sessions he kept saying that he’s open to playing Rocky again, always that back and forth thing, he can’t make up his freakin’ mind. So fingers crossed for now.
If Clubber and Rocky are both not coming back at all and if Creed III is gonna go for a totally different plot, I’m sure they’ll find a way to make die-hard Rocky fans happy. They’ll figure something out.
I think in Creed III, it be pretty cool if Adonis could start a friendship with Rocky’s son Robert (played by Milo Ventimiglia), that could be a big possibility too remembering how Creed II ended.
