Sylvester was nominated for Best Supporting Actor at both the Academy Awards and Golden Globes.

Now it looks like they found their director.

Stallone, who previously teased the possibility of a sequel on social media, has confirmed he will be helming the film, not Coogler who is now in post-production on Marvel movie Black Panther, in a post on Instagram he uploaded on Monday (09Oct17). More on the story below.

While Stallone only acted in Creed, he had written every other Rocky movie until then, and directed four of the films. The star has now revealed who will direct Creed 2-himself. In September, he posted a photo to his Instagram with the caption, "Getting stronger!"

"Looking forward to directing and Producing The incredibly talented Michael B Jordan in CREED 2 next year". At that time, a representative for MGM stated that the project was still in development. Stallone made the announcement in a post on Instagram.

Creed 2 was originally planned to hit theaters in November 2017.

My Entertainment World has an interesting nugget on their site, noting the start of filming of "Creed 2" to begin February 5, 2018 in Philadelphia.

Stallone has been teasing elements of the sequel for while now, pushing the idea that Donny may fight the son of Ivan Drago, the Russian boxer played by Dolph Lundgren in iconic 80s cheeseball classic Rocky 4.

Sylvester Stallone is returning to his most famous character for another round.

This makes us so happy.
