As pointed out by Slashfilm, Stallone said, “The heart’s willing, but the body says, ‘Stay home!'” Though he’s flirted with a fifth Rambo film over the years — at one point the plot saw Rambo fight “feral beasts” — he stepped back from the idea, saying “It’s like fighters that go back for one last round and get clobbered.

Creed 2 In The Works As Stallone Considers Possible Film Ideas Variety reports that a sequel to Rocky spin-off Creed is a certainty. MGM CEO Gary Barber told the site, “There’s no doubt that we’re making a Creed 2.” Of course, between that declaration and the film’s eventual release are many steps, including securing director Ryan Coogler, currently in talks to direct Marvel‘s Black Panther.
