The last Rocky movie, 2006’s Rocky Balboa, turned out about as well as humanly possible for a story about a former heavyweight champ getting back into the ring at the age of 60. That Rocky Balboa was watchable at all was a credit to Sylvester Stallone’s skills as a director, writer, and star, and to the enduring appeal of the Rocky character. It was a triumph of strong execution over a weak premise.

The 'Rocky' franchise had its fair share of ups and downs over the course of six great-to-awful films, but 2006's 'Rocky Balboa' seemed to definitively close the door on the story of Sylvester Stallone's good-natured boxer. However, it turns out that the saga isn't over quite yet!
A spinoff titled 'Creed' is in the works and it will follow the grandson of Apollo Creed, the champion boxer and chief rival/best friend of Rocky Balboa.
