Change the name of the movie Creed

This petition had 201 supporters


The movie CREED about the son of Rocky Balboa's deceased trainer's son, is making it difficult, if not impossible, for the still-vital online Creed fanbase to exchange thoughts and discussion regarding band developments, song interpretation, rumors, non-erotic fanfiction, and deeper insights into the expanded Creed universe. MGM has completely disrespected the Creedmunity by using the name of the still-popular band for their non-Creed related movie and have been stifling conversation by flooding social media hashtags and searches with non-music Creed discussion. MGM should have consulted Creed experts and online leaders before titling this movie. The Creedmunity will not be silenced.

Alternative titles suggested

• Rocky's Creed

• Boxer Creed

• Son of Creed (although, this was the title of a rare 2002 leak of studio demos, the title was never officially used by the band, and thus is not considered canon)

• Apollo Creed's Son

• Rocky: Son of Creed (while this makes it look like it's a reveal that Rocky was Creed's son, this is just an idea and MGM's marketing department can make it work somehow)

• Rocky: The Next Generation

• Creed (not the band)

We're just spitballing here, but hereby grant MGM permission to use any or all of these titles in all territories. 

We can make a difference. The online Creed fanbase and the discussion of this movie do not have to be enemies. We can be friends. 

However I can guarantee that if MGM does NOT change the title that no self-respecting Creed fan will EVER see this movie, not even on bootleg!!!!!!!!!!
