This confirms that Creed director and co-writer Ryan Coogler won't be involved with the sequel, as Stallone has already stated that he has written the movie's script.

Sylvester Stallone will be appearing as a guest star in the next season of "This is Us".

Stallone announced the news in an Instagram post featuring him and Jordan.

He also shared photos of Jordan from the first film to get fans exited about this sequel.

The OECD expects the global economy to maintain growth momentum in 2018
Kuwait will record the fastest growth within the GCC at 4.1 per cent in 2018 following negative growth of 2.1 per cent in 2017. The report projected India to regain the top spot next year with a 7.4 percent gross domestic product (GDP) growth rate.


"Looking forward to directing and Producing The incredibly talented Michael B Jordan in CREED 2 next year ..." In addition to starring as Rocky Balboa, Stallone wrote the screenplays for all six pre-Creed films and directed Rocky II, Rocky III, Rocky IV, and Rocky Balboa.

Many see it as a natural progression for Balboa to make his final appearance in "Creed 2" before bowing out to allow Jordan to take "Adonis Johnson-Creed" to the next level. So far Coogler, as well as the film's producer MGM, have yet to issue a comment on the recent announcement by Stallone.

Four of them are from the Rocky franchise, one the 2008 Rambo comeback, another the 1983 disco classic Staying Alive and the latest being The Expendables.

No director or release date has been confirmed for the long awaited "Creed 2", but more news to follow.
