Creed 2 Drago's son

Ryan Coogler’s outstanding 2015 film Creed was all about legacy: a son stepping out of his father’s shadow with the help of one of his old man’s best friends and most famous rival. That friend happened to be boxing legend Rocky Balboa, and since Coogler is busy with Black Panther, Rocky actor Sylvester Stallone is stepping behind the camerato direct Creed 2, which he’s been heavily teasing on Instagram over the past few months.

Stallone hinted that Dolph Lundgren‘s Ivan Drago might return to the franchise in some capacity, and we wondered if that meant Lundgren would step back into the ring or return to train a new character. Now, a UFC fighter has revealed that he’s auditioned to play Drago’s son in the film, so it seems as if the sequel will continue that thematic exploration of legacy that began in Creed.
