Carl Weathers wants to be in a possible Creed sequel

Thursday February 18th, 2016

If there is a sequel to Creed, Carl Weathers would like to reprise his role as Apollo Creed.

“If I could get a role as cool at this point as Rocky’s was, then, yeah, in a heartbeat I'd be back in,” Weathers told reporters Wednesday, according to People.

“It’s always is about the role. Just to say to be Apollo Creed again, I don’t think that's enough for any actor,” Weathers added. “You want to see what the character’s about at this particular point.”

In Creed, Michael B. Jordan plays the son of Weathers’s character from the original Rocky films, Apollo Creed. Though Weathers’s character died in the fourth installment of the series, a potential Creed sequel could include flashback scenes.
