Thirty years after the ring of the first bell, Rocky Balboa comes out of retirement and dons his gloves for his final fight; against the reigning heavyweight champ Mason 'The Line' Dixon.
According to Jodi Letizia's lawyer, Sylvester Stallone had promised her that she would reprise her role as Marie in this film. When Letizia learned that Geraldine Hughes had been cast in the role instead, she filed a lawsuit against Stallone, claiming that she had cleared her entire schedule to prepare for the filming. The lawsuit was eventually settled.
Yet another quick knockout for Mason Dixon, almost perfunctory; the fans let him know how they feel about it.
When Rocky gives little Marie a ride home, it shows him getting in the van and the van automatically starts, his hand never goes to the ignition to put the key in. Then when he gets out to go talk to the drunk, it shows him turning van off.
The first set of end credits features fans of all ages running up the front steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. The second set of credits features a shot of Rocky standing alone at the top of the steps.
