The former World Heavyweight Champion Rocky Balboa serves as a trainer and mentor to Adonis Johnson, the son of his late friend and former rival Apollo Creed.
Flashbacks of Apollo Creed were planned to be shown in this film.
Don't! I have to prove it!
Rocky Balboa: Prove what?
Adonis Johnson: That I'm not a mistake!
Towards the end of the movie. After Adonis Johnson (Creed) shows up at Bianca's apartment door, the top dead bolt is already in the unlocked position (north to south). Adonis and Bianca continue to dialogue and the dead bolt remains in the same position. Yet just before Bianca finally let's Adonis in, the dead bolt is suddenly in the locked position (east to west) and Bianca ends up unlocking it (north to south) to let him in.
Only movie in the Rocky series which Stallone didn't get top-billing.
SPOILER: In the final theatrical release of the film, Adonis Creed loses the fight to Pretty Ricky Conlan by split decision, mirroring the end of the original Rocky. However, another ending was filmed in which Creed wins the fight.
