Back in February, tabloid TV show TMZ approached actor Carl Weathers in Los Angeles to ask for his opinion on the new Rocky spinoff movie Creed, set to debut in November of this year. What’s Apollo Creed’s reply? “I have no comment on the new ‘Rocky’ movie.”

Weathers is not involved in director Ryan Coogler’s modern take on the Rocky movie series; we’re betting that his character, who was killed off by Ivan Drago in 1985’s Rocky IV, will appear in flashbacks only.
