Oh no!! Rocky does NOT need a 'new younger girlfriend' in ROCKY6!! Then the series will NEVER be over!! And the only way it will EVER be over is if/when he dies - in the ring or in his sleep dreaming of Adrian! Just the idea of Lil Marie as a plotonic girlfriend was enough to get used to while awaiting the final cut of this movie! And then to find out SHE's not going to be in it either is a let-down becuz I think it could have worked out just fine.I'm disappointed but who knows? The script could change AGAIN! I hope it does...

This was my initial idea for Rocky VI for Rocky to have a girl friend - because is you look at all the Rocky series it onky took Adrian to be the last push for Rocky back into the ring and it was his last hope and inspiration Adrian - but I thought to myself Rocky needed a more younger girl to play his girl friend - someone who is vibracious and full of youth - which is what he needs to get him energies again - if you wanna stick reality alot men at Rocky's age who is going through a mid life crisis like Rocky always look for a very younger girl as their girlfiend and that is just reality - even if she is young enough to be their daughter or granddaughter - atleast Rocky is thinking like me - because I follow his movies very closely and I had some great ideas for him to put foward into Rocky 6 - I guess if you do not voice your ideas they might get stolen by someone else - I wish that could have been an extra at his shooting in Las Vegas and audition for a role in his movie - but unfortunately I am too far away and I know that I lost an opportunity that would never come around again working with the great Rocky and experiencing the making of a movie. Or well if the Lord permits - I might meet in some other way or the other.
