Sylvester Stallone has assassin’s remorse — admitting he feels TERRIBLE for killing off Apollo Creed in “Rocky IV” means again in 1985.
Of course, Stallone didn’t simply play Rocky Balboa — he wrote the primary 6 installments of the “Rocky” franchise — together with the scene in “Rocky IV” when Ivan Drago beat Creed to demise in an exhibition match.
Now, whereas celebrating Carl Weathers‘ 71st birthday this week — Sly expressed remorse for ending Apollo’s life when there was a lot extra ‘Rocky’ cash to be made!
“I have to admit I regret having Apollo passing away so soon,” Stallone wrote … “He was Irreplaceable.”
He added, “Besides being a great actor he is the BEST cinema boxer of ALL TIME ! Truly amazing , GRACE , POWER , and UNBELIEVABLY FAST!!!!! Never ever to be duplicated! Thank you my friend, never could have done it without you!!!”
There had been rumblings that Weathers was upset he wasn’t included within the “Creed” motion pictures — and again in 2015, he gave TMZ the ol’ “no comment” once we introduced up the alleged points.
But now, it appears the 2 are on good phrases — Weathers ended up attending the “Creed” premiere and has praised the film publicly.
By the best way, Stallone reportedly needed to work in an Apollo cameo in “Creed 2” — the place Adonis Creed would see visions of his father whereas being hospitalized after a struggle … however he was in the end overruled by the director.
Soooo … possibly in “Creed 3”?
