Sylvester Stallone could hang up the gloves as Rocky Balboa but he signals that the Creed series could continue – and possibly with an interesting cast.
TMZ ] This week Sly said he would "absolutely" welcome it when he met the heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder as the son of Clubber Lang, Mr. Ts Rocky III antagonist, in one Follow-up to Creed II which was published last month for strong reviews.

"The answer is yes," Stallone said Tuesday when he was asked if Wilder Lang's son could play possible Creed III . "Come one, come all."
Wilder, whom Stallone said had "many hidden talents", comes out on December 1
Wilder had said a week earlier in an interview with TMZ that "his passion" is acting and that he would prefer to "hit it the way I get it", not actually hit. "
" I love acting, "said the American heavyweight, explaining that he used to perform in church plays, but never had a chance to pursue it on a" grand scale. "
Clubber's son Playing in Creed III would certainly be a "big step."
"Call me!" he said in a direct appeal to Stallone to give him a shot.
It would be useful for Stallone to bring back Clubber Lang. Creed brought in Michael B. Jordan in 2015 as the son of Apollo Creed, Rocky's main rival. Creed II released in November, pitted with Jordanian Adonis Creed against Viktor Drago, the son of Ivan Drago, who killed Apollo Creed in the ring. Stallone has yet to confirm a third movie in the spin-off series, but it seems that Adonis' story is not over yet. It would be a "pity" if a probable Creed III would not have the son of Lang, Mr. T.'s Chicago heavyweight.

While the series looks like it would go on, last month Stallone suggested in an emotional Instagram post that the Rocky character was unlikely to return.
"This is probably my last rodeo," he said around a campfire surrounded by the cast and crew of Creed II .
