After Creed’s Oscar-nominated performance, Rocky himself (Sylvester Stallone) will be at the corner of the director for a follow-up. The announcement came with the Instagram account because the film went through the preparation phase.
Creed came as a surprise to many people. A film linked to a dying franchise, a relatively unclear director and an actor associated with a gang bombing, would be forgiven (designed too many goals), thinking that the film would not blow a fist. But Creed challenged anticipation and pumped life into a franchise no longer relevant. Director Ryan Coogler’s Marvel movie pulled out and confirmed Michael B. Jordan’s star status.
