Ryan Coogler and Michael B. Jordan‘s Creed was a smash hit and many were looking forward to seeing the duo make their triumphant return in the sequel.  However, it seems fans are getting the next best thing as Sylvester Stallone has announced he will be helming Creed 2.

The actor not only returns to the Rocky universe alongside Jordan as Balboa, but behind the camera as well. There are still no plot details, however Stallone as directer is interesting for a number of reasons, including his Rocky Balboa and Rocky III directorial. It could prove to be interesting seeing a directer well-versed in the franchise to carry on the next installment with so many different characters and situations to play with. There’s currently no release date yet on Creed 2, but it’s possible fans can catch it in 2019, after Coogler and Jordan’s Black Panther premieres next year.
