That being said, those hashtags could be telling us a different story, and it would be kind of insane for Stallone to do that at this point considering he just earned an Academy Award nomination for his last performance.

After the first film's success both critically and commercially, it was only a matter of time before a sequel was announced. 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. The star has now revealed who will direct Creed 2-himself. "One more Round!" said Stallone. Representatives for MGM, which produced the film, and Coogler have not yet responded to Vanity Fair's request for comment.

Talks about the potential for Creed 2 were being had as far back as January past year, with Jordan stating he believed that a sequel would need a real villain.

Speculation has already begun on the fate of Stallone's character "Rocky Balboa" who was suffering from cancer in the last installment. 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.

A release date for "Creed 2" has not been set yet.

Creed 2 is now expected in theaters sometime during 2019. However, it's much safer to expect the film to hit theaters in 2019.
