After thirty-three years it’s Creed vs. Drago once again in the first trailer for MGM’s Creed II.
Michael B. Jordan returns as Adonis Creed, but in this sequel he’s set to square up to a villain that’s a blast from Rocky past, as he comes face-to-face with Viktor Drago (Florian Munteanu) the son of Dolph Lundgren’s villain, who killed Apollo Creed in Rocky IV.
Suffice to say, tensions are running high in this film, as Adonis is adamant that he has no choice but to fight Drago. It’s as though his trainer, Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone) is reliving the past, as he tells Creed, “That’s the same thing your father said, and he died right here in my hands.”
Writer of Creed II, Stallone is back for his eighth run as Rocky, while Thor: Ragnarok’s Tessa Thompson is also returning as Creed’s love interest Bianca.
Creed II is set for release on November 21st in the US, and November 30th in the UK.
