Remember when Rocky Balboa had to fight Thunderlips in Rocky III?

Well, Sylvester Stallone might be resurrecting a similar storyline for the Creed sequel, aptly titled Creed 2, which follows the life and times of Adonis Creed, the fatherless son of the late Apollo Creed.

Creed Sr., as you know, was killed by Ivan Drago in Rocky 4.

“Sly” recently posted an image of him boxing former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar, who resumed his pro wrestling duties for World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) a few years back.

What role Lesnar has, if any, remains to be seen, as Stallone could simply be trolling fight fans to spread the news about Steven Caple Jr. taking over for Ryan Coogler in the director’s chair.

“Excited for Coogler to hand over the reins to Steven Caple, Jr. - our director for Creed 2,” Michael B. Jordan, star of Creed, wrote on Twitter. ”Can’t wait to bring you guys the next chapter of our story ... coming at you November 2018.”

Let the speculation begin.
