“The irony is, as my life evolves, I find new things in the Rocky character,” the 72-year-old said when the Sun visited the set of Creed II this past spring. “In the last one, he faced death and his own mortality. In this one, he’s finally completely alone. The only thing he has left is this young man. So he’s now part of the Creed universe. The Rocky universe is gone. It’s left in the graveyard.”Read more
MGM and Warner Bros. have given us a new sneak peat ag what is in store for us this fall with "Creed 2." The anticipated sequel to 2015's reinvention of the boxing movie, which was also a sequel/spinoff of the Rocky franchise, will have Michael B. Jordan back as Adonis Creed, this time facing off against the son of Ivan Drago. Don't worry Rocky IV fans, Dolph Lundgren will be back as Drago in this film. Ryan Coogler will not be returning to the director's chair (a major red flag), instead we get Steven Caple Jr. ("The Land"), an unknown, so let's be open-minded, since the screenplay will be written by Sylvester Stallone. Stallone will also reprise his role as Rocky Balboa.
"Creed 2" opens in theaters on November 21st.
