First, they teased us with the poster. Now we finally get a look at Creed II with the newly released trailer. In the sequel to the 2015 drama, Michael B. Jordan reprises his role as Adonis Creed, the son of Rocky Balboa’s former rival Apollo Creed.
Sylvester Stallone is also back as the former World Heavyweight Champ. This time round, Rocky is getting Adonis ready for a match against Viktor Drago, the son of Russian boxing villain, Ivan Drago.
Ryan Coogler, who directed Creed and serves as executive producer on the project, passed Creed II’s directing torch to Steven Caple Jr, possibly due to scheduling.
“There’s timing, and that film for whatever reason it had to go when it’s going. I think it’s a blessing that it’s going, man,” Coogler told Variety. “It’s amazing that they found an incredible filmmaker in Steven Caple Jr., who’s a guy I actually went to film school with, who I have a lot of love and respect for. I can’t wait to see what he does with it."
