While it is not clear if Ryan Coogler will return to direct the next Creed
movie, Stallone is sure that he wants to reboot the Rocky
franchise once again with another movie. I know Ryan is probably going to be gone for a couple years, Stallone says. So there will be a quandary on: Do we work with another director and have Ryan produce, or do we wait? Theres a diminishing time acceptance of a sequel. Now they are cranking them out in a year.
Ryan Coogler and Stallone have already started working on ideas for the new Creed
movie. According to Variety, here are the possible story lines. One of the ideas is to bring back Carl Weathers to play Apollo Creed, who died in 1985's Rocky IV.
Ryan has some ideas of going forward and backward and actually seeing Rocky and Apollo together, Stallone revealed. Think of The Godfather 2. Thats what he was thinking of, which was kind of ambitious. Stallone said hed recently bumped into Weathers, who looked like he was still in good shape. I cant believe I got in the ring with him, he says. Even if it was play fighting.

Ryan Coogler was shocked to hear that Stallone told the media his plans on a Creed 2
movie. There are no secrets with Sly.

Another storyline possibility would be with Michael B. Jordan's character taking on another challenger. Youll have him face a different opponent, which I would say is a more ferocious, big Russian, Stallone says. You can start to meld my experiences and then you start to bring different cultures into it. And you can see whats happening with the Russians today in America. The complication will come with the girls ambition, because shes not Adrian. She has places to go, things to see, the clock is running on her hearing.
