We all know that eventually the Rocky franchise will get a reboot. Hopefully when the do it will be as heartfelt as the original. If that does work out and they get to Rocky III once again, I would suggest they go in a different direction and have Rocky face off in the ring against an actual tiger. With today’s technology, an anthropomorphic tiger could look pretty realistic and I don’t think anyone would expect it.
If they do, I hope they use the above work by Draco – Edno Pereira Jr as inspiration.
