Creed II featurette

The Rocky movies have always been about legacy. Sylvester Stallone‘s underdog boxer didn’t think he was going to win in his first bout with Apollo Creed back in the original movie – he just wanted to “go the distance” to prove he could hang in there with the best of ’em. 2015’s Creed was about legacy too, but in a different way: legacy was a burden in that film, a shadow from which Michael B. Jordan‘s Adonis needed to step out to establish himself as a boxer in his own right.

Surprise, surprise: the theme of legacy returns again in Creed II, with Adonis not only facing off against the son of Ivan Drago (Dolph Lundgren), but doing so as a new parent. Plus, in a more meta sense, new director Steven Caple Jr. has the franchise’s legacy to contend with as he tries to fill the shoes of previous director Ryan Coogler. Watch a new Creed II featurette below.

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.
