Creed has quickly become a critical and box office darling since its release earlier this week (generating a sweet, sweet amount of Oscar buzz in the process), which inevitably raises the question currently rushing through every Hollywood overlord’s mind: Will there be a sequel? If you ask Michael B. Jordan, who stars as the titular “Donnie” Creed in the film opposite Sylvester Stallone’s “Rocky” Balboa, he’s definitely interested in reprising the role. “A character so rich as this, and the world he’s in, I want to see what happens to him next and what he does,” Jordan said in a recent interview with the Associated Press. “Especially the way it ends off, it’s pretty cool. I think with success and time and circumstances, it would be exciting to come back and work with (co-stars) Sly (Stallone) and Tessa (Thompson) again.” Cue the motivating music.
