Adjust Comment Print

Sylvester Stallone officially announced that he will be directing Creed 2. It's been teased that Drago won't be going the Rocky route in the first Creed and will still be jumping into the ring with Michael B. Jordan's young Adonis "Donnie" Johnson Creed, but we'll have to wait and see if that actually happens.

Stallone, who shot to fame in 1976 as the zero-to-hero boxing champ Rocky Balboa, has directed four previous films in the "Rocky" series, the most recent being 2006's "Rocky Balboa".

Along with a picture of himself with Creed star Michael B. Jordan, the actor wrote on Instagram, "Looking forward to directing and Producing The incredibly talented Michael B Jordan in CREED 2 next year ..." Representatives for MGM, which produced the film, and Coogler have not yet responded to Vanity Fair's request for comment. Many still believe Stallone's performance as Rocky Balboa in 2015's Creed deserved the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor, but the award went to Mark Rylance for his role in Bridge Of Spies.
