Rocky (Sylvester Stallone) and Adonis (Michael B. Jordan) are back in the gym in the latest images from the upcoming sequel Creed II.
Though Stallone’s iconic character was fairly absent in the boxing parts of the Creed II trailer, the newly-released photos show that Rocky is back in the ring where he belongs, returning to training his late friend’s son.
Directed by Steven Caple Jr. and written by Stallone himself, the sequel sees Adonis Creed fighting for redemption (and his family’s legacy) when he takes on Viktor Drago (Florian Munteanu) the son of Ivan Drago (Dolph Lundgren) who killed Adonis’ father in the ring in Rocky IV.
Strangely, while Rocky is training with Adonis in the first image, he doesn’t seem to be in his student’s corner when he is preparing for the fight in the second image, though of course there is a sliver of sleeve that could be him. Who knows, maybe he just popped out for a coffee while Adonis gets prepared. Check out the pictures below:
Creed II is set for release on November 21st in the US, and 30th November in the UK.
