Along with a photograph of himself and "Creed" star Michael B. Jordan, Stallone wrote: "Looking forward to directing and producing the incredibly talented Michael B Jordan in "Creed 2" next year..." Jordan played Adonis Creed, the son of Apollo Creed, with Stallone reprising the role of Rocky Balboa. "One more Round", Stallone captioned the post.
Sylvester Stallone is not only no stranger to directing, but the truth is that Rocky titles make up the bulk of his resume in that arena.
Over the past few years, the Rocky franchise has taken a little turn - and 2015 gave us the first new and improved installment in the film series, in the form of Creed. Representatives for MGM, which produced the film, and Coogler have not yet responded to Vanity Fair's request for comment. He has quite a number of directorial credits including four films from the Rocky franchise the last being 2006's "Rocky Balboa".More news: Walmart Looking to Perform Online Purchase Returns in 35 Seconds

Of course, we can't help but notice something missing from Sylvester Stallone's announcement regarding Creed 2. Sure, there's no denying the Coogler's Creed is definitely a towering achievement, but trading him out for Stallone is definitely not something worth brooding about.
Do you think Creed 2 will be as good as Creed? .
A release date for "Creed 2" has not been set yet.
