A Few Thoughts on the ‘Creed’ Trailer
Rocky's back! And this time he's black! Kinda sorta:
A few scattered thoughts:
- Is this Stallone's payback for all those years of being the Great White Hope? Getting white people/Italians all pumped up per Eddie Murphy?
- Is Rocky Mickey now? (Trainer, see “Rocky”)
- Is Rocky Adrian now? (Sick before big fight, see “Rocky II”)
- Paulie's dead, eh? Like Mickey (“Rocky III”) Apollo (“Rocky IV”), and Adrian (“Rocky Balboa”). Wither Gazzo?
- Mrs. Cosby is Mrs. Creed, eh? Lavelle Roby too busy?
- Wallace again? When is Bodie going to get some respect?
- Surely those damned star-spangled boxing trunks are a little rank.
