It was the year, Oscars were blasted for being racist, because Ryan Coogler should have been nominated since he was the man behind CREED. Now, Sylvester Stallone has taken the reigns writing the sequel CREED 2. Read on…
In 1977, Sylvester Stallone won the Oscar for Best original screenplay and Best actor. Fast forward to 2016, he returned to Oscars with a nomination for Best Supporting actor, but Mark Rylance took home the win.
Since the success of Creed Stallone has been teasing us an awful lot recently and now he’s revealed that he’s written the script for the sequel. Then, he recently confirm that Ivan Drago is going to return in Creed 2, but now Sly says that he is going to have something of a rematch.
“It wouldn’t be a party without Drago, would it? I’m gonna punch him. You know I gotta hit Drago once.”
He closed out saying:
“Ya know what, tune in next week. It’s gonna be good.”
This should be interesting, but Creed is about Apollo Creed’s son, NOT Rocky Balboa and Drago, unless Adonis Johnson (Michael B. Jordan) will have to face off Drago’s kid. Then the film makes somewhat sense in a Karate Kid sort of way. God we hope the script isn’t that simple.
Since Rocky IV is considered to be one of the best entries in the franchise this seems like a smart approach for Creed 2. Michael B. Jordan is already on board for the sequel, along with Sly and Dolph Lundgren. But as of now the director’s seat is empty.
It only makes sense that Ryan Coogler returns, but he’s finishing his work on Black Panther for Marvel. Hopefully Coogler comes back to film Creed 2, but he’ll probably have some rewrites for Stallone to consider since it sounds like Sly’s trying to have Rocky back in the ring again.
We just want to point out Creed was written by Ryan Coogler & Aaron Covington. The Story was created by
Ryan Coogler and taken from original characters Sylvester Stallone created. Not having Ryan on the writing side has us doubting this film is going to have much to do with Adonis like it should.
“Here’s a chance to stretch your imagination … HISTORY WILL ALWAYS REPEAT ITSELF IN ONE FORM OR ANOTHER, JUST GOT TO BE READY! … Sins of the Father…. #creed2 # agentnickyc #rockybalboa”
Let’s be real, Rock 1 – 4 was great, but let’s stick to the Creed storyline. It was a rebirth, but with a fresh new take, not the same song and dance we all saw 4 to many times.
