Creed II Featurette

While getting back together with your family could make for an awkward reunion this Thanksgiving, there’s no way it will be more tense than the reunion between Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone) and Ivan Drago (Dolph Lundgren) when Adonis Creed (Michael B. Jordan) and Viktor Drago (Florian “The Big Nasty” Munteanu) go head-to-head in the ring in Creed II.

With Turkey Day just around the corner, studios are making their final pushes for some of the big holiday releases that will be clamoring for your family’s attention this Thanksgiving, and a new Creed II featurette certainly does a good job of tapping into the nostalgia they might feel when they recall the events of Rocky IV, which loom large in this latest boxing sequel.

Creed II Story

Creed II will have Adonis Creed facing off against Victor Drago, son of Ivan Drago – the man who killed Adonis’ father, Apollo. That sets Creed II up to seem like less of a boxing drama and more of a revenge thriller. But according to star Michael B. Jordan, there’s a lot more to Creed II than simple revenge. According to the actor, Creed II‘s story is more layered than a simple synopsis might suggest.

Creed 2 Casting - Florian Munteanu

Back in November last year, we heard that Creed 2 might be looking for someone to play the son of Ivan Drago, the legendary boxer responsible for killing Apollo Creed in the ring at the beginning of Rocky IV in 1985. At the time, an MMA fighter named  Sage Northcutt said that he sent in a tape as an audition for the role, but there had been no real confirmation that the spin-off sequel starring Michael B. Jordan would bring in the offspring of another legacy character. Now not only do we have confirmation of the character’s involvement in the sequel, but we know who’s playing him as well, and it’s not the aforementioned MMA fighter.

Get the details on the Creed 2 casting of Ivan Drago’s son below. Read More »
