Description: Rarely does a franchise switch tact and relegate its main character to a supporting player, but for Rocky Balboa, it’s a change born by necessity more than anything else. At the age of 68, Sylvester Stallone’s time in the ring is all but over, but that doesn’t mean the former Italian Stallion doesn’t have anything left to offer. For Ryan Coogler’s Creed, Balboa will assume the trainer role to coach would-be world beater Adonis Creed - son of the late Apollo and played by Michael B. Jordan - as he eyes a shot at the title. Coogler’s spinoff hints that Stallone’s character will face demons of his own outside of the ring (cancer, perhaps?) and the remainder of the cast will be rounded out by Phylicia Rashad, Graham McTavish, and Tessa Thompson.
